Gottcha.......well we will see how things work out, but thank you very much for the info. Are you using the gov on the Castle?
Well I use 6S so it runs at wide open throttle all the time; the governor basically doesn't really do anything on my setup. But I've used the CC governor on my 700E (120HV ICE2) on the occasions that I flew it on 12S and it works fine. It's especially solid at higher throttle settings like 60% and above.

The new CC that comes with 800 may have an even better governor; it has a lead that allows you to use outboard governors with it also.

Ok awesome, maybe i will give it a try and see how it works. I think i am going wait on the batteries until i get it together and see exactly what kind of room i have and estimate the all up weight. I am a big fan of the ThunderPower batts and i see they have quite a few options......

I got mine at Helidirect back when they had a combo deal with 2 free Align 5200mah 6S packs. I've got a set of older Align 5200's that are going on 3 years old now. They still have almost all their capacity. And are somewhat cheaper than TP's...

But you should have enough room to put pretty much any batt in there you want...

Not sure, but I would imagine between 70 and 100 cycles on some of them.

PS: Align seems to have a new version of their 5200mah 6S out which is rated at 50C. These are smaller tallness-wise than my ancient 40C versions. I got two of these with my 800 DFC Pro kit and they seem to be good batts..

Align must have a new supplier for this particular batt...

Also, do any of you have any experience with the Kooskum 720 controller? Looking at several different options, sounds like lots of v-bar fans, some beastx fans etc.

Well ok, how about the best Align heli ever... That's really what I thought when I was building mine. It's a definite improvement over my 700E V1, the old-school one with the flybar. And it's a FBL conversion with the old V1 FBL head. Though, at over 3 years old and only one crash, it's still flying in my FPV chopper rotation.

The 800 DFC pro is significantly improved over that one. Especially in the tail...

Seems like you are already a JR fan. Why not get the XG14 w/ RG731BX XBus Receiver. That's JR's radio with their top notch gimbals. The Futaba 14SG is a great option if you're ready to try a different brand. Both support serial bus connection (XBus and S-bus) and are capable of telemetry.

Yes stock dominator 490, it is ok for now, but I will go for scorpion 500 or 450 with 14s, I have used JR dsx9, Futaba 10, Futaba 7c and 14sg, 14sg is the best, and for fbl system I have used CGY 750, Vbar 5.3 black and mico beast, Vbar is the best but not for hight vibration, then 2nd place goes for beastx, it is very good vibration resistance and an easy system to program.
