Default NEW - Compass 6HV FBL Build Videos

OK sorry for the long delay all in doing any build videos but I needed a little break. Bought a new house, renovating an old house for rental, life, job etc.... It's all good though

So next up is the Compass 6HV Flybarless build vids. As is posted here in this forum John (HF user Mercuriell) also did a series of build vids on the 6HV flybarred heli a while back. As I always say, watch all you can if you need help. He may cover stuff I do not and visa versa so please check out his vids here:

http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=190183

Compass and Nankin sent me this like early December. I also have a Compass 3D+ to build so actually I will probably do these vids in parallel. Again sorry it has taken so long to get started but here we go!

Whats in the box!
VIDEO -> Compass 6HV - What's in the box! (62 Megs)

Sorry for the delay guys.... LIFE
So here we go.

VIDEO -> Compass 6HV - Frames (39 Megs)

VIDEO -> Compass 6HV - Servo Installation (38 Megs)

VIDEO -> Compass 6HV - Main Gear and Main Shaft installation (33 Megs)

VIDEO -> Compass 6HV - Servo and swash setup using Vbar (66 Megs)

VIDEO -> Compass 6HV - FBL Head Assembly (70 Megs)

VIDEO -> Compass 6HV - FBL Head Setup using the Vbar (36 Megs)

VIDEO -> Compass 6HV - Motor installation and Pinion Adjustment (28 Megs)

In these next two videos I show a couple of mods I did. A pin oiler hole for the tail grip thrust bearings and pinning the tail case.

VIDEO -> Compass 6HV - Tail Assembly Part 1 (70 Megs)

VIDEO -> Compass 6HV - Tail Assembly Part 2 (43 Megs)

VIDEO -> Compass 6HV - Tail Servo and Tail Setup using the Vbar (41 Megs)

OK that does it for the building part. Next up will be electronics placement, final Vbar setup, and maiden flight. I am waiting on batteries and a BEC.

Bob

Great to see Bob - I'm sure you're gonna love this heli - it's a sweet flyer but a real pocket dynamo - been known to give the TDR a run for its money in speed trials!

Well the build videos are done. So people cant be that impatient! Only thing really left is Vbar setup and flying.

It's here. Just have not had time to finish it. After the VBAR issues, radio issues, etc. I just have not had time to basically REBUILD it all over again. No worries though. It will get done before any other heli build I start.

This must be the longest heli built ever and the most patient people we have here.

Hope your dad doing great.

In order to show me you have to fly something larger than a MCPx, I'm not sure that will even happen since your brushless one is done.

Dear Santa,
All I want for Christmas is for Finless to finish the electronics and give his 6HV a maiden flight.
Oh yeah...and a Compass 6HV FBL (which is sitting under the tree).
