teamjrpilot,

I have no doubt about that. I know of several others that are running higher gains then I am right now. I plan on adjusting mine as I go and become more familiar with this heli. The locked in feeling is amazing.

Thanks for the wiring compliments from everyone. I actually enjoy wiring my helicopters and figuring out methods that work best. Part of my old back ground in field service.

Thanks,
Chris

You are correct, it does not need anything. Changed my statement above.

Alan forget about seeing in person, get one, build it, fly it, then you will want to sell all your other helis.

Flight report:

I only have a hand full of flights on the E7, about 12. The setup was very close on the first flights and I'm very pleased.
I have adjusted gains a small amount and am not done yet. When I have my final gains I'll post them. Changed pitch amounts from around 11 to start with up to 13 now. Very fast heli.

Over all the helicopter is very solid when it comes to fight, you can dial up the CGY750 gains and have a solid locked in feeling. The helicopter is very light, so getting it to switch directions or stop is nothing but the flick of a stick.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you are running stop delay on the tail. The tail is strong with this heli and you need some stop delay. I bumped mine up on the CGY750 and am trying to find what works for me. Still need to test this out a little more. This is in the advanced part of the tail gyro in the CGY750. Page 93 in the manual.

Silicone spray the belt. Use a RUBBER SAFE silicone spray on the belt before flight. Make sure you coat it good and wipe off the excess.

Make sure you are NOT using full Right rudder travel. This is a quote from Matt Botos.

"Do not use all of your right rudder travel. You will stall the tail blades when the gyro is trying to compensate!
Leave a 4mm gap between brass slider and tail box flange bearing."

I have new main and tail blades showing up on Wednesday. Should have more to report next week.

Thanks,
Chris

I have to agree with ya... I have been absolutely loving my E6 and can't wait to finish my E7. Any time you want to come up and fly with us, (weather permitting of course ) please feel free.

Give me a call sometime...

Great thread Chris. The CF pushrod was the only thing about the kit that concerned me. Having split a few CF booms on my mCPX, I would have prefered some heartier ends. Your suggestion of the brass sleave was a good one. As my parts bin was lacking those sleaves I made a trip to the LHS and found some aluminum tubing. Cut and finished the ends with Dremel and attached it with JB Weld. I scored the inside of the rod with tip of a narrow metal shaft. The cleaned with alcohol. Then used JB weld on the rod.

Also, to help loosen the ball link, I put the threaded rod in a variable speed drill. Then slowly threaded the rod into and out of the link twice. Here's the way the end turned out.

So....... A big brown box showed up yesterday with 2 sets of Rail 696 main blades and 2 sets of Rail 106 tail blades. Was able to put 2 flight on the E7 with these new blades. Words cannot describe the performance increase without changing any settings on the heli just the blades. They are so quiet.

Just waiting on a new BLS256 tail servo now. That should finish the E7 completely.

I'll take some pics tonight. Very happy!

Thanks,
Chirs
