Battery Tray Update:

The first showing of the E6/7 tray was at the IRCHA event and the response was extremely positive.

Based upon the waiting list on the FBL site, I have produced 100 trays that will be available for kits and spares.

The attention to detail on the tray was more than I expected based upon battery type (individual or stick), strap locations and canopy mount. After a few minor changes and feedback from a number Synergy team members, I will be ready to ship these kits on October 20th. (Thank you Matt)

Total machine time to process this tray and receptacle, debur, tumble and assemble is well over 60 minutes per unit. My goal was to offer the entire kit as stated on a past RR post for just under $50.00. Based upon the machine time, Delrin stock, lanyard pull, sewing time and straps, I have missed my estimated.

Therefore I will need to offer the complete kit at $59.95 as an introductory price for the first 100 units.

The extra battery tray assembled with the Delrin clip, lanyard pull and battery straps will be $42.95

I firmly believe you will not be disappointed in what I am providing to you.

New Product Update:

FBL ET (Electron Transfer) Station:

At this year's IRCHA event, I noticed a Synergy team member with a very nice charging station. We are working together to produce 12 units that will have the Synergy graphics proudly displaying a E7 and E5 on the back and top panels. The balance of the panels will be wrapped in carbon fiber film.

I have sourced a high quality aluminum case and will be using a number of components from Progressive RC. Primarily the banana jacks, pre-made wiring harnesses, 15 amp power cord and fan covers. The power receptacle on the side of the box is fused and has a lighted powered rocker switch.

The inside of the charging station will be lined with a black Velcro fabric to hold your chargers and balance board. One last touch will be a Delrin receptacle to stabilize the FBL battery trays on top of the inner deck. In a very short amount of time, I will post photos of what we have created.

Titanium Control Rod Ends:

I have made a slight modification with the manufacture to enhance the rod end. I have increased the barrel length a ¼ inch to capture even more of the carbon rod and have added 3 ridges to the barrel for better gripping with the FBL ball link pliers. The next step was to have a common thread size to the entire FBL turnbuckle sets. We have increased the thread from 4-40 to 3 MM. You will now be able to use the 3 MM ball joints on any of our titanium links.

New Product Development:

I have one more building tool being made to help the ease of assembling the helicopter. I will announce this soon. We also will be selling a miniature German made torque wrench for assembly.

FBL Kit Updates:

E5 PRE Orders: Based upon the waiting list, I have ordered enough to cover who has registered on the site plus a number a number of extra kits. You will have immediate parts availability once your kit has been sent. All other products for the combo packages are in stock.

As soon as I have tracking numbers, I will alert all everyone on the waiting list via FBL internal store email. The shipments will arrive in multiple drops, but in a very short period of time.

E6/E7 Kit/Battery Tray Combo:

There will be an option on the site to order you kits with the battery tray. If you are ordering the helicopter, I will provide an extra discount on your total order as this is considered a package.

Conclusion:

Thank you for your continued support as a Synergy dealer and purchasing my tuning components.

You have been very kind even when I have made a few errors or shipping delays.

I appreciate your understanding as I am trying hard.

Thank you.

Ralph

E6/7 Battery Tray
I to have one of the first Prototype Battery Trays and have tried many different configurations in regards to an already stick version battery and a (2) separate battery configuration and is works flawlessly either way, The Price in my opinion is minuscule when it comes to the quality and over all ergonomics of this system. When you install it regardless of the batteries you are using, And yes it has held up to some pretty impressive crashes on my part.lol You will find out real quick why Bill and Myself swear by this Upgrade!

As far as the battery Charging stations. I saw one and My jaw dropped. What a Work of Art! This is a true conversation piece and lets face it, we all like our Heli's and Equipment looking Top Notch. This little jewel takes it to the next level. Plus I think you will be able to personalize it as well with your name..

A lot of great looking products coming out of FBL Rotors Unlimited it seems, and from what I hear a lot more coming..

Thanks Ralph for your Passion to heighten our experience in this Hobby.

Ralph,
If we registered interest in these when you first mentioned them on your website, will we automatically have one reserved?
I've got a few bits to add to an order.

We are still having issues with international orders from time to time. We have a workaround for now. When you place your order put down on account. I will then send a payment request.

Our provider is working on this issue as of today. I will let everyone know soon.

We are making some other changes on the site based upon customer suggestions. Wish list, Cart history and view all of the parts on continuous pages

There is now a tab that state's view all to review the parts as one page.

I am glad this function is in place as it was quite difficult to go from page to page.

Thanks for everyone's input.

Nice work Ralph, hopefully you'll use these talents and venture into other manufacturers options and make some more upgrades

I am not sure there is enough in height for the current tray, Once I get my hands on one, you bet I will look at every possible way.
