I am wondering how much time does one take to build a trex600? Nitro or electric. I am no expert, but I just built an electric in about 6-8 hours. I am amazed how quickly this thing goes together. 6-8 hours for me means about 3 days of work. The last I built a heli was the hirobo sceadu evo 50, much more work on those...

cheers

A couple hours a night until it is done. On a 600n, probably 12 to 15 hours from opening the box to flight. I'm in no hurry.

My first NSP build took me 6 hours, the second NSP took me only slightly over 2 hours.

I split my 600n over two days, about 8 hours total build time. My 600e on the other hand was spread over a months time. If I had all the parts I wanted when I started building the 600e it probably would have been the same amount of time.

7-8hrs ready to test fly. The 600E is about 1 hr less time in the build.

A good day flying is when you come home with everything in one piece

It took me two days on my pro doing bits here and there. However, I think that the figures everyone is giving is realistic once you've done it once and with no distractions. How familiar with your electronics also plays a big factor. Programming everything can be a pain in the arse.

Bob White's vids at HeliFreak do a very good job at demonstrating how to assembly the TRex 600s, step by step.

It's not how fast you can assemble the 600, but how well.

It took me about 3 weeks to build my NSP. I'm usually busy after work so it was an hour here and there. I enjoy building as much as flying so i'm in no rush. I think I also have a bit of OCD, sometimes I take stuff apart to be sure I put it togerther correct. Or...I will sit and over think something for hours. This was my first nitro heli so alot of things were new to me.

I remember putting a R50 together over night in hopes my dad wouldnt catch me with new kit and hoping he wouldnt notice (had an R50 and R30 at the time with the same canopys and blades and they were kept at the end of the garage heh).

The rappies were good, quick and easy to strip down and put back together but i feel i should mention that although the 600 is exceptionally well designed to be quick any easy to drop the engine/tail assembly and such, as an overall job its quiet a lot of work to completely strip down and such.
Granted with the rappy to get to bearings and eveything the frames needed to be split and that took a little while but once that was done it was all laied out bare for you where as the align is a little more fiddle as such.

That being said its a LOT rarer to be doing a whole strip down and therefore the 600 wins for maintinance *grins*.

Still miss the old rappies though...

But i put my first 600n together in half an afternoon
Not saying it was ready to fly or the blade spun the right way but i got all the bits screwed together and into one lump with the sqizzly servos and leccys on and operating heh!

Maybe he means airframe only assembled. That I can see.

But I agree, 2 hours from box to flight, for a 600 nitro? Not even possible.

Mikado Logo 400, hopefully ready by spring.
