Oigal,

That is very strange, unfortunately I don't can't think of any other reasons for the drop out. From one of your other posts i thought you may have just switched to Futaba which is why I suggested to try those things.

If you been flying with that setup for alot of flights already then signal shadowing does not seem likely although I would still do a range check for before you next flight for peace of mind.

One thing else that comes to mind. what are your failsafe settings, does the heli go to idle or throttle hold when it's looses the signal?

Because if the receiver lost the signal and failsafe not set to hold the heli would continue with it's last inputs and the Jlog would still see a signal out of the receiver.

From the photo's, apart from the body, the frames look okay. I hope you find the cause of the problem and get the heli flying again soon.

Hi Andy,

thanks a lot! The failsafe settings are set to motor stop on lost of signal. I have tested it a few days before and today - it's still configured right. The throttle signal becomes zero if radio is switched off.

The fuselage has cought most of energy so the chassis is okay. Only head ans tail are mess. I have all neccesary parts in my prototype Eagle MOT and will get back flying soon...

I agree with you and will do a range check before first flight :-)

Regards
Holger

Here's Mine. These are the parts i used for this conversion.

a. Scorpion E3 motor mount 30mm
b. 0414-192 mid main mast bearing holder
C. 0414-377 Clutch top bearing holder
d. 0414-280 cross member (3 sets)
e. Compass E7 receiver stand off for rear battery and ESC mounting. it come in 64mm and 60mm lenght so i used a 2mm washer on each side of the 60mm.

With this setup i can adjust motor and tail rotor gear mesh just like the Hirobo E conversion. I have a wider range of gear ratio i can use so i can try different KV motor if i wanted to.

It's a pain to mount rear battery if you don't have some sort of quick release mounting just like the Hirobo Option. I got the idea from SAB Goblin. I use O-rings to hold the Battery and use a spring tool for much easier battery mounting.

I you guy's need the CAD drawing for this frame, just pm me.

aayl,

Would you mind reshooting that pic with more front lighting and without the bright white background? The white in the back messed with the exposure so the details of your nice conversion don't show up well in the pic.

Thanks,

That really sucks Holger, I put my d3 in for the first time a few weeks back and have put it down to a ball link failure. I'd had over 3 years on that particular d3 and been pretty good with maintenance but must have missed something, so know how you feel.

Just a question, what servos are you running on the R617FS? From memory, this receiver runs in 7ch mode and doesn't support HIgh speed servo frame rate? Does sound like a possible signal or even software issue as it sounds like it just held your last control input (no fail safe). Was there anything unusual going on near the field that day? Is the 2.4ghz module seated into the back of the tx ok?

I had radio issues a few years back but was with spektrum (switched to futaba because of it). I'm 99% sure it was actually a software related bug after time consuming and expensive troubleshooting. My machine had used it's nine lives in the air so I swapped out the radio gear before it bit the dust or worse, actually hurt someone.

Hi all,

I'm going to order more SPI conversion kits. If some are interested in, please let me know. The price for the complete kit is about EUR 350,- without(!) the SPI landing skid mounts (blue in the photo below). These skid mounts are both EUR 100,- :-(

It's also possible to purchase the lower parts only for converting a Freya. Here you have to shorten the lower end in front of the plastic chassis to get the slider complete in. The price is about EUR 250,- without(!) the SPI landing skid mounts (blue in the photo below). These skid mounts are both EUR 100,- :-(

Regards
Holger

I have two EX2 s SWM with SSZ-III heads. I was planning to convert to electric and FBL. Do you offer a kit or can you recommend anything for this? I fly F3C. Thanks in advance.

Re
Hi mate, I don't have experience with EX2 conversion, but the kit I have used to convert E3 should be ok to use on EX2, the conversion kit was just a motor mount from scorpion and the pinion from E3EP kit 11T pinion. The motor mount can be used easily on EX2 because the lower frame is the same, It's may be hard to get the motor mount now due to they no longer manufacture it, do a google search or you can try TMRF. If I were you, I would consider to buy E3EP conversion kit from Hirobo and add some needed frame parts so you can convert your EX2 to E3EP with SSR7 head, the head, tail section and landing gear etc all can be retained, you just need E3EP conversion kit plus the control levers from E3EP, they all can be get from RCJapan .

small issue
hi guys, last summer I bought the spi's from Dennis. Unfortunately I found a small errror in the upper frame design .
The gearmesh between the taildrive gears is just a bit to big. At least, it's bigger than on my freya's..... It seems not to be a problem however, since I never heard of any stripped gears here. I'm going to make slots from the existing holes on my cnc mill.
Just wanted to let you guys know in case anyone is still flying the SPI.

regards,
Steven.

Haven't been in here for a while.

If anyone is interested in this type of platform please message me here or email me as I have one setup that I am selling.

It has all the bells and whistles like the Hirobo blue upgrade parts. This kit hasn't seen any air time at all. It will also come with a custom painted canopy.

My email is takumi344@gmail.com
