Longer shaft
Looks like there is a longer shaft now that reaches the 3rd bearing block. Not sure why its not included in the kit.

Thanks Tim for clearing that up,it is a bit strange that a third bearing is supplied in the kit but not the correct shaft to use itAt least now we don't have to make our own shafts

wrong shaft in kit
OK, just got my 600nDFC kit yesterday and had a chance to open it up today. It appears I have the short main shaft as well. I see that aligntrexstore.com has the new improved longer shaft on their web site. This must have just poped up in the last day or two. It's not yet available so there is a waiting list. I sent an E-mail asking if this part will be sent out for free to those who just bought the DFC kit. We'll see what they say. It sounds like a QC issue at align with the wrong part being placed in the box.

On another subject, I need to run a battery up front to power the servos correct? Anyone recommend a good battery to use?

Thanks

Looks like align was REALLY pushing to get the kit out. But Align is ALWAYS good about fixing there problems i wouldnt worry about it.

Good to see the build,have you got the short shaft in your kit as we have over here or is yours the correct length.
Also Travis have you had a reply to you e mail from Align yet, up against a brick wall over here

I contacted Align about the short main shaft. They quickly responded and said a new longer one has come avaialbe but not in stock for two weeks. They said once it comes in they would ship me one for free since I just got my kit. Pretty good customer service if you ask me. It's been about two weeks now so hopefully the longer shaft comes this week.
I've been reading that the stock one way bearing on this 600n is not too good and prone to locking up. I ordered a new ceramic bearing from Boca Bearing for around $17. I also ordered a V bar for this kit so when all of it gets here I'll asemble this new bird.

Couple EASY questions. why have you mounted the servo tray upside down? also i didnt know you can mount the gov sensor on the outside of the frame! to do so you just sand a hole in the fan shroud?

BLADE- Yea that is the ONLY downside I have found is mounting it on the INSIDE sux! This is GREAT news. I will get it switched to the outside as soon as i need to change it. My 600n is converted to DFC and it is the best head i have EVER flown. Im not sure why people hate it other then they have NO experience other then what they read. It is SO easy to setup and parts count is super low and not to mention the insane pitch and cyclic availuable without binding. Also the way it feels in flight is so insanely crisp yet hardcore. It is PERFECT for hard 3d. Align has done a great job and the NEW swash design has taken care of the problems people were having. GOOD JOB ALIGN! keep it coming!

Tim, thank you for the build vids. They showed me a few things I missed on the head with grease and lock tight. Very helpful and something I can always refer back to when needed.

Thanks again.
