Unfortunatly I wont be able to restart them until after IRCHA and will restart on Tuesday 8/14. Sorry but my real job got in the way of me doing some more vids before then
I took the day off Tuesday after IRCHA specifically to get a BUNCH of vids done so please hang in there.

I opted for the standard. Bought a metal tail case even though not necessary. Flies awsome and I dont even have a gallon threw it yet. I just leaned it out some,but still ways to go.

Finless, it would be great if you could make a video on how to properly break in and maintain a nitro engine for newbs like me who never had a nitro heli before.

Hey Bob, thanks... downloading 6 and 7 now! Don't mean to jump the gun but the supplied screws for the servos don't fit the brass inserts (eyelet). Can we mount the servos without those things?

Not sure where to post, but this seemed the most on-topic.
I'm trying to find out what starter shaft will fit the Nitro 600. What size shaft is it and do you know any companies who make them? I'm trying to prepare for the heli, even though I can't get it yet.
Thanks!

You can use a standard starter shaft like those for the Raptor etc. Very common starter shaft. The Trex600N has a one way on the start shaft so you dont need an expensive starter shaft with a one way clutch in it. The straight cheapo $17 Raptor starter shaft will do just fine!

I'll try to help you here....
They're meant to limit the amount of "crush" that the screw imparts on the rubber grommet. They help provide the correct amount of vibration protection to the servo from the frame while still holding the servo secure. You don't need them if you are careful not to torque the screws so tightly that you crush the grommet completely (which would practically negate the grommet's damping ability).
