The voltage regulator is installed.
The RX is in and bound(hidden inside the frame).
The BeastX is installed and set up.

Nice job on the wiring, and keeping everything hidden. You may need to swap out the wheels on those servos, as they are too far out distance wise to provide the correct resolution that the BeastX needs to set the cyclic pitch.

Been flying those servos and wheels on that BeastX on an Aurora for a long time now.
Flies nice

Very nice mckrackin. Can you comment on how the heli flies with and without that CF base plate stiffener? I didn't know that was an option. Looks like it stiffens up the tail boom supports and skids quite a bit. My only gripe on mine is the flexibility in that area. I think I just found the cure. Thanks for sharing.

I haven't flown the E yet but I have flown the nitro with it and without it.

When I first got the nitro,it had the the full bottom stiffener.
I crashed and broke it.
I had a spare half bottom and used it instead of buying a new full bottom.
The heli flew sloppy..I could tell a difference and eventually my frame broke right under the fuel tank.

The full bottom is a must have in my opinion.

The previous owner of this heli added the aluminum cross braces in the skid mounts and I added a couple more right below the flight pack area.

This makes the frame very rigid.

Surprising! I would expect to see the 6 degrees of pitch with a red light with those arms.

The full bottom plate stiffner on the nitro and the electric Aurora is a nice upgrade to install on the model. There is indeed a difference with the overall stiffness of the frame/tail boom supports, which in turn adds a bit more crispness to the Aurora model.
