Trouble binding my 150x ­čôĚ

problems persist
I have the satellite mounted under the receiver as was pointed out to me. But now I can not get the thing to bind?
When I first got the dsmx satellite i was able to bind as normal. I was able to move the cyclic servos and such (although I will say that things did not seem quite right). But as i have stated earlier, I removed the satellite, thinking that i no longer needed it and could not then connect.
Once it was established that i did indeed need the receiver and I got it mounted, i now can not connect? I have tried going through the binding procedures as per the Align's binding procedure video and it blinks all of the right blinks but it does not ultimately connect.
A friend asked if it was reading low throttle (as sometimes you have to calibrate an esc when first setting it up so that it sees low throttle) but I have my throttle settings in normal 0,42,65,78 80. So that should be good.
Any help with this delimma will be appreciated. I am quite sure that it is something very simple that I am missing.

Binding
I watched that video you posted (again) and went through the process step by step and it bound and while the satellite was plugged in it seemed to work just fine (although my throws on cyclic seemed to be not much). But as soon as i disconnect the satellite it loses signal with the radio. Of course the video ends without addressing the use or not of the sattelite to fly. There is just no way something so light could be required to fly with that huge satellite.
Does anyone know if ALIGN has a US based support phone line?

Thank you
That makes sense. I figured it had to be a pre production model or somethjing.
Sorry for the late reply. I have been waiting on a satellite. I solved my "binding" problem. I had a DSM2 sattelite instead of a DSMX!! SO.....now I have been able to bind but i still do not have an operable heli. I have downloaded the app and I have watched all of the setup videos. I set up my radio by watching the video straight from ALIGNS website. I put the satellite in and it bound no problem But when I unplug the satellite it no longer has connection? surely I dont have to try and install this huge satellite on the heli to get it to fly?

Trouble binding my 150x
Hello everyone. I just purchased The Align 150 X and I can't wait to fly in but so far I have not been able to bind it. I have gone online to YouTube and watched a couple of videos of by Allen Szabo and Jeff Fassbinder and I noticed that there receiver is different than mine. They both show plugging in the satellite on the right-hand side of the receiver to an "antenna" port and putting in a bind plug into a bind port right next to the servo plugs on the top of the receiver . My receiver does not have the antenna port on the side of the receiver. I do have an open slot next to the servo plugs that says "sat" so I am assuming that is for satellite . But no place to put in a bind plug and there was no bind plug that came with my kit.
I first thought that maybe these were pre-production models. Can someone please help me to bind this thing. I have a spectrum Dx8 if that matters.
Here are some pictures to show the receiver that Jeff has in his in the receiver and mine.
Thanks.

The bar is not really tight against the batteries at all. The bar is just to prevent the battery from falling off the double sided tape under its own weight.

A little ingenuity
Purchased the Custom Heli Parts Res 2 frame set for my 700E mainly for the rear exiting battery trays. Got them all assembled and tried sliding my battery packs in and utilizing the straps to hold the batteries to the tray, they would NOT FIT!! I was so ticked off. But I did not give up. I had to find a way to use the batteries (couldn't afford to buy new ones) so I decided I needed to somehow "brace" them to the tray from end to end not side to side. THis is what I came up with. Utilized a 550 boom brace. Stuck the batteries to the tray with double sided tape and clamped em down with the boom brace.

Questions about TRex 700E after market frames???
I have recently crashed my 700E and need new frames. I have heard of some upgrade frames like the CHP and RES frames. Anybody have these frame sets? What are the pros and cons? One thing I really like about the regular stock frames is the locking battery trays. Can you utilize the stoc trays with either frame set? With the CHP's it seems as though you can only use up to 4000mah batts, has anyone used 5000's? I would hate to have to buy new batts as well as the frames. I like losing a lot of the linkage on the elevator servo with the CHP frame.
Or are there any other after market frame sets out there to look at?

700 and Align 3GX question
I have just installed the 3Gx unit to try in my Trex 700. I have done the first hover and everything is rock solid, CG is good, etc. But my tail is not holding in a hard climb out. I have the tail setup on with gyro on AUX2. I have the gain at 70% in normal mode and for just forward flight its fine but on a climb out it rotates nose left 45 degrees. I have taken the idle up gain to 80,85,90 and all the way up to 100% and it has no effect. I have not checked the head speed since installing this unit but I have the governor at 1900 and 2150 for idle 1 and two and neither head speed shows in difference in response of tail.
ANy helpful hints would be appreciated.

I wanted to try the 3gx compared to the 3G so I got a brand new unit (latest version) but so far I am not liking the instructions. Unless I have missed some things they are not real clear about the direction of the battery wire for polarity. I can not get power to the unit! Here are a couple pics. Does this look right to you guys?

Thank you gmarsdenn
Did you get that off of a manual or do you have a V2 and measured yours? The only reason I ask is because I think the outside diamter of the bearing should be the same but the inside diameter is different to slide over the larger base of the hub. I guess I was thinking that one number of those three would change but not two?

And waco, I did google it. I even went to heliproz sight where they have all the manuals and none of the manuals have the same hub in it as mine. Even the 550. Take a look at the photos I posted of my hub and see if you see that in any of the manuals. All of the manuals show the V1 hub like the top hub in my pics. I dont know why they dont show the same kind of hub as comes in the V2 tail. It is an align V2 tail rotor that I have. I did do my research first. I just could not come up with it.

I crashed a few weeks back and am just now getting to repairing and need to replace the bearings in the bottom part of the tail blade grips. I ordered what it showed in the manual but they are wrong. I ordered the 5x10x4 but they do not fit. Here is a pic of a version 1 tail and my v2 with the 5x10x4 bearing. It fits on the V1 but not V2. can someone help me get the numbers for the correct bearing. Didnt keep the bearings that I took out unfortunately for measurements. Thanks.

Aerial, I did not like the way that the esc wires had to snake through the elevator linkge stuff up to the motor. It just seemed too tight. This also is a 160HV not a 120 so its a little bigger. I wanted to mount it up there, I think it looks a little cleaner up there but decided to go here. Does make it easier to work with.
Mr Loudly, what changes on the heli going to DFC? I know the shaft is shorter and you lose the phasing arms but anything on the frame or servo setup?

What is the lowest C rating that you can go with on the 700? I have all stock equipment except scorpion 560KV motor instead of the Align 510. Right now I have 20-30C rated batteries that I flew on my 550. Just using them to setup everything but wondering if this is too low?

700E/Align 3G question
So far in setting up the heli everything has done well. But today, the fifth flight, I was trying to set my gains on the tail for climb outs and had a random turning of the tail to the left. I am running the 105 edge blades and the tail has been holding fine, no tics at all, but all the sudden just turned slightly to the left. Set it down, then took back off keeping it low, did fine so I started setting the gain again, did a climb out, and the tail turned like the gain was low THEN it just turned another 45* one me, almost lost it. I am running about 2000 head speed. Am I missing something?

Third main bearing block worth it?
I have frames that have the third bearing block holes. Is there a real need for this upgrade? NOT a hard 3D flyer. Mild at best. And I guess you would need an extended main shaft.

New gear ordered
I decided to try the slanted gear and pinion. I have a 112T MG and a 12T pinion on their way. I ordered from Rons and they did not have a 11T pinion for that. It was a combo main gear and 12T pinion. So we will see how it does.

Richard
thanks for the info. Pitch is 12 and 12. The 1900 head speed was just a starting point. Was looking to run around 2100. But I do want to find a sweet spot for me that I can get the maximum flight time while still doing mild 3D. So I will set up the idleups at a low head speed for more time and a higher speed for more fun . Why do you suggest the slant gears? Are they tougher, quieter?

Ahhhh
Ok, thanks. I am using the KDE motor mount because the scorpion would not mount to the align block. I will get new gears and make sure that my mesh is correct. Seems there are different gears out there. I have the straight cut 115 tooth mg. I see a M1 gear (which I assume is Mod1) is that the one I need?

These are the two different ones

Another factor
The motor I have is a scorpion 560KV, is that too much torque for this machine? I originally purchased a used 700N that had been converted to an E but did not like the battery arrangement so went ahead and went with a regular 700E. So this motor was originally run in a heavier bird I think?

Main Gear stripped???
I was on my 3rd test hover today and doing some climb out to adjust the tail gain on the 3G and all the sudden the main gear stripped! Almost completely took off all the teeth. No other gear stripped. This was the stock gear that came with the heli and I got this heli used so maybe it had some stress but should I go ahead and upgrade to the Black (KDE I think) gear? Or are many of you guys using the stock gear with no real issues? I have the 115 mg and 12T pinion running 1900.

Align 3G setup help??
Well guys, I have a little problem that I need some helpful thoughts on. I just completed my trex 700E build two days ago and test hovered it the first time yesterday. It was PERFECT. Did not have to adjust tracking, it hovered great, the 3G seemed to be solid. The gain for the tail was a little off but I was going to adjust that. I did one more test hover and then satisfied that everything was good I recharged the batteries and was putting the braided mesh stuff over all the servo wires. So today I went to do some more test hovers and when I did my flight checks (powered up) I noticed that when I give it up and down cyclic that the swash tilts forward at the top of its travel and back at the bottom???? When I put the 3G in to setup mode (no gyro effect) it is perfect?? swash stays perfectly level up and down. What in the world could have changed? Or if it was like this before and I just did not notice because I was only hovering at midstick, then what could be off. The linkages are correct lengths. As I said, in the setup mode, everything is 90 and level and it works perfectly but when I power up normal with the gyro, it seems that the elevator servo has extra travel or something? ANy ideas would be appreciated.
P.S
I have reset the gyro several times now. No change

More 700 questions about servo setup
Thanks to all of you who have responded to these questions. I am setting up the servos and have a few questions

First, I have some metal servo wheels for my align servos (610's) but I dont remember who made them and I want to make sure the demensions from center to center (hub to arm hole) is correct? can someone tell me the mm's on your metal or plastic round wheels (cyclic).

Second, The tail servo utulizes the star shaped horn with 3 holes in it. I have some of those from futaba and was wondering if the deminsions are correct on them. What is the mm's from center to center (hub to hole center)? Or should I just buy the align ones?

Third, in the setup for the 3G it says to make sure that trims are centered before going into setup mode? Does that mean the substims at 0 or the trim tabs on the radio centered? Normally I would mechanically get the servo wheels positioned as close as possible then use subtrims to get it perfect. But do you just physically get it close and then subtrim it during setup?

Thanks for your help.

I see how you butted the batteries lead to lead. BUt your batteries in the pic are not attached to the battery tray? I have the latch type tray and was hoping to pretty much attach the batteries (velcro) to the trays and then just pull the trays out to charge. I guess if the batteries are mounted with the leads facing the ground and coming out the back that would work.

Sorry for any confusion, But I do plan to have the battery leads pointing toward the rear of the heli. In the pic I have attached, the right side of the battery try would be up front and the left side faceing the rear so the leads would be coming out the back of the heli tray area. I dont know if I had the battery tray positioned correctly to reflect that I just threw it on there for the pic. BUt will the leads going to the sides of the battery fit?

Since you have been so helpful
I was wondering if a few of you could snap a shot or two of your battery tray setup? I am wondering how your layout your batteries. It seems like laying them over on their sides to where the battery leads of the battery closest to the nose runs back along the side of the rear battery? But not sure if this will fit in between the framse

I am ready to install the esc on my 700. I am running a seperate battery up front for the electronics. So the only position for the esc is on the rear plate. But how do you guys run your wiring? Do you have to add on to the length of your esc wires? I have a Castle 160HV new from factory with standard length wires. Not nearly enough to make it to the motor? Does anyone have any pics of their wiring that they can send me or post? Thanks.

Thanks for all the responses
Let me ask this. I have flown electrics for many years now and never had a main battery pack "fail" in flight. What would cause a battery to "fail"? I mean I totally see the sense in running the flight controls seperate but then Ive never experienced a battery failure? Im by no means a stick banger pilot and only do mild 3D. ANd if you were to run long on a flight and drain your battery then that does not cause loss of electronics does it (unless you have a esc cutoff setting for low voltage). I guess I am playing devils advocate.

More 700E questions on upgrades
Looking into a few things. Would like your opinions please.

Quick UK magnetic canopy mounts or RC booya-
I like the fact that you have all four with quick uk but not sure about their ability to stay locked?

Tail Rotor Carbon Pushrod-
I see kits for the 600E but not the 700e. Will the 600 one work or do I need to make my own?

Tail Rotor-
I know that there have been many reports of the V1's bolts breaking. But seems as though you dont necessarily need the grips just the v2 rotor hub correct? May get the whole thing anyway.

FBL Servo Wheels-
Are they necessary? Do the stock align plastic servo arms work just as well?

Carbon FBL linkages for servos and head-
Are they a good upgrade or just nice to look at?

Thanks for your thoughts

Finally getting Trex 700E and have a question
From the research I have done so far, it seems as thought upgrading the tail rotor assembly to a quick uk is a must (at least for the version 1 machines which I am getting). Also, I am wondering about the stock battery tray, does it lock in place? I see the upgrade tray from KDE, the aluminum one and am wondering if it is better than the stock? Thanks for your help in advance.

opinions needed on which head for trex 700 fbl
I have aquired both a new RJX 700 head and an Align 700E head for my 700E. Are there any big differences between the two? Would you consider one way better than the other? I personally like the looks of the Align head. Is there anyone who has tried both?

Crazy Question about 700N
I am considering picking up a Gforce converted 700N (to E) and I have a question for anyone who might be able to help. I REALLY like the new canopy for the 700E. Does anyone have an E and an N and could tell me whether or not the 700E canopy could be adapted to fit on the N frames? I can do fiberglass work to change holes or mount a mount on the bottom if I have to. Would really like to be able to use that canopy?

Thanks for the response guys
I am glad to hear that it is a decent deal. I would love to get the full E but I dont have cash to spend and this guy will trade me straight up for my 550. I figure if I get this heli then I can later get the E frame set for it. Do you guys know if the main shaft bearings and frame spacers would work on the new E set? One thing also, I really love the new E canopy. I was wondering if I would be able to adapt that canopy onto this gforce frame?

Trex 700N conversion to Electric question
I am considering trading a guy for his trex 700N he has converted to an electric utilizing the Gforce kit. It looks pretty good but I know nothing about it. Anyone done this, what did you like or not like. Only thing I see as a negative is you dont have the nice slide in tray for both batteries? Just wanted opinions? Thanks.

I have been running the stock M motor in my 550 and have had no complaints. Would run another. But some buddies have the turnigy 1400kv motor and say it is same power but more efficient but they are out of stock. Just wondering what else you guys are using? Will the new Align 600MX work in the 550? I am running 6s and doing mild 3d.

ALign 3G question
Ok, I have gone through the entire setup and reread everything. VERY simple really. BUT, when I power up now, the led status shows red which means its in Rate mode instead of heading lock? Which from reading means that my "delay" value is not set (I think) and although I thought that I had it, I am not sure how to set that according to the instructions using the transmitter stick? I have done it over and over again, just as the instructions say and no matter how far over I push the stick (which indicates 100% delay) when I power up it is still in rate mode? Any ideas?
I do have my gain in the transmitter set at 80% normal mode and 70% idle 1 and 2 as starting points. I think that is what the instructions said.

Tail servo boom mounts
I want to mount my servo on my 450 out on the boom rather than in the frame. I would like metal but dont want blue! I see one by microheli but it says specifically for the 9650 servo. Does anyone know of other metal tail servo boom mounts. Or I guess I can just get the microheli and worse case just use one screw hole per side?
