Crap! I should have held off on my X5. I was planning on the Rush but I couldnt wait. Now that the kits are starting to hit the market.... Maybe I can postpone my wedding to fund it.

Looking good guys. Keep them pics coming.

The kits manual as well as quality, and features are some of the best I have ever seen! Recieved my kit yesterday afternoon around 6:30 . Started building on and off late thru the evening going to bed around 1 am. Started again around 6:30 am. Now mounting electronics.....fabulous heli!

Hope to post some pics soon...

Motor mount and Right side frames...



Main bag 3 has the motor mount, bearing blocks with preinstalled bearings, and other hardware.



Clockwise: middle bearing block, motor mount, upper and lower bearing blocks, coounter bearing with supports, motor mount supports and hardware for the left side assembly.



See the difference in the upper and lower side of the bearing blocks? The hole closer to the bearing is where the retaining screws go. While the press fit is great, the retaining screws provide extra security.



Bearing blocks with the retaining screws installed. See how they lay over the outer race of the bearing?



The center bearing block is to the left. Motor mount to the right.



I test fit the motor to the motor mount. Only two screws are required for my particular motor, a Scorpion HKIII 4035-500. Note that the center bearing block and the motor mount are integrated. Once in the frame, the bearing block is secured but the motor mount can slide back and forth so you can get a perfect gear mesh. Don't tighten the screws that attach the motor mount to the bearing block at this time. You'll tighten them, along with side frame screws after gear mesh is set.



The pinion. Note, it's helical cut. This will cut down on gear noise!



I test fit the pinion and only tightened the two set screws enough to get one in the flat spot precut in the motor shaft. I did this because I'll likely have to adjust pinion gear height once the the main gear is installed. Leaving the pinion this way makes that step easier.



Bag 4, frame parts.



Bag 5 contains some parts that are needed to complete the right side frame build.



The right side frame. It's 2.0mm CF. You can tell the right side of the frame from the left side of the frame in a number of ways. What I did was look at the rear servo cutout. That's not there in the left side frame part.



Next I installed the center bearing block and the motor mount. It's cool. The bearing blocks have machined posts that line up with the drilled holes in the frame.



The right side motor mount support. This is cool, too. I provides a surface for the screws to the mount to slide when you're adjusting gear mesh.



I haven't seen this is other helicopters that I've built. Center washers. As you can see they have a machined post that fits inside the frame holes to provide a really great fit for screws. As a result, there is little room for error when attaching parts to the frame! It's cool.



The top bearing block, installed.



All the bearing blocks installed here.



This is the elevator flanged bearing. It goes into the frame, but not before you use a little CA or fast drying epoxy on the flange.



The flange bearing, installed.



These are parts for the rear canopy pin. Note the breakaway tab. Breakaway tabs help save the frame in the event you crash.




You assemble the breakaway tab and the canopy pin by inserting a small nut driver or other thin piece of metal through the hole cut in the pin. This allows you to hold the pin in place while you tighted the M3 X 6 button head screw.



I made a mistake when I installed the bearing blocks. Turns out the breakaway tab uses one of the upper bearing block bolts for attachment. The button screw fits into a slot cut in the frame.

Next up... left side frame assembly

Being my first 700 im pretty excited, the sheer size of the heli is awesome, the head and mainshaft are so beefy they will probably hold up great ina crash.
