That was some good flying.Do you like the bullet blade over the non bullet blades.

Peter, that was some awesome flying! HP05 or 915?

Hpo5 9 tooth Hyperion 550mah. I'm working on the 915 but havnt had enough time to fine tune it. The tail holds but needs huge rotor fin and cause really slow tail performance. Working on it.

3 min flight times will be annoying.
The 915 will work in time.
Will be hard to beat hpo5 IMHO.

TNT I think the bullet blades are the best out there..... I've tried kddb, Micro heli carbons, the stock blades and like the bullets best. Personal preference I suppose.

What flight times are people getting with hpo5 with ten tooth pinion?
This I havnt tried this...

I have also tried mini deans and xp12a esc and can not tell one bit of difference from xp7a with just jstx plug.
It's all in the programming setup on the xp7a as I get slightly different head speed from these programed cards than the non programable helimax esc's. Must be the timing setting I think.

Have tried helimax esc and that's fine too. Almost at the stage where I work on the mcpx more than my other full size helis..... Lol...this is getting annoying.

Imo Pretty sure hpo5 will win due to good power and flight times.
Convert and go fly people.

hello

i m not sure for the 120sr tail motor, is it possible to connect it directly at the same place that the original motor??? or i have to put a new esc???

thanks for your help

You can connect it to the same plug where the original tail motor went no esc needed. When plugging it in there is a red mark on the plug make sure that is facing the inside.

ok guys.. i started my BL conversion tonight.. i used a small dab of epoxy to attatch "thesteve" to the front of the board right below the LED... i soldered the red and blue wires to the points on the board noted by liftbad on page 42.. soldered the yellow wire to the "magic resistor" on the back of the board.... everything turned out great on that although i was nervous.. i am waiting for the xp7a to get here.. then i will put the co5m in and see how it goes.... i am also converting over to micro deans connectors..

wow it works..1st time...

- c05m 1.5mm from HK
- XP-7a ESC
- steve converter(old)
- hyperion 550mah
- 9T pinion

wired as per http://mattbockman.com/

BUT had to cut too much frame away...stock frame now very weak...

thanks all for the guidance TNT and Plumbr.

Try this. It's a nice inexpensive solution to stiffen the stock frame, IMO.

ok thanks. I assume you glue it to the frame with CA.
Is the frame worth another 5.50? or get a microheli frame?
On the stock frame I could break another part and then my 5.50 is wasted...
I find astroid-designs expensive.

That lower frame brace is one of the most worthwhile parts you can add. It doesn't need to be glued, adds stiffness and saves the bottom bearing at times when it otherwise would fly out in a crash and be lost. There's no question- you should buy this! And Dylan's stuff is well worth the price.

but my stock frame split near the motor mount screw hole and I glued it with CA so if I do not glue the add on , I do not see how that will help the screw mount holes area. I just think that is putting good money in a bad frame.
I will fly this stock frame as is until it breaks and then go for a microheli frame which has replaceable canopy mounts and replaceable other parts.
Dylan;s motor mount=5.50
microheli motor mount=4.99

thanks for the input, that is why I like this forum.

Cool, Dylan also has a custom MH frame motor mount with a section that stubs out to accommodate boom braces, just FYI. I have it and like it.

I have it in my MH frame. It works great!

The astroid motor mount / frame stiffener is to stiffen the stock frame. It doesn't need to be glued. The motor mount screw pass through the mount, stock frame and into the motor. This ties them all together
and will prevent the stock frame from breaking at the motor mount screw holes.
The motor mount you are looking at on microhelis site is a replacement mount for their frame. These parts surve totally different purposes.
If you don't want to spend a chunk on a microheli frame you can keep your stock frame and just add the the stiffener.

Yes I know they serve different purposes but they are about same size, made from same material and I was just showing the cost difference between the 2 vendors. MH price is their suggested price, you can buy MH cheaper else where. The astroid stuff you can not buy else where. It is single sourced.

will stock blade grips and rotor hub be okies running this walkera motor on a 12t pinion?

thx

Can't really say it is alot of head speed.

I have been using that motor and esc for about 5 months and no problems. I would get a set of the MH grips when you can.:bacon
