I am building a 600NP kit I also got on eBay from the same seller as SuperGenius. So far, I am up to the servo install with everthing being there. I do have a manual and use it for refernce pictures, but it is Finless' videos here that have been guiding me the whole way. This is nothing like work, this is FUN!, Andy

Hello Bob, I've been using your videos every step of the way thru my build. I'm sure it is a far far better way then if I tried to do it from just the manual. I am at step 11, setting up the servos & bellcranks. I learned more about the set up of the servos and swash mix then I ever understood before, that was GREAT!. I am unclear about 1 part of the directions so far, though. Looking at the evevator servo thru the frame, it seemed that you want the wheel to rotate clockwise to create an up motion thru the bellcrank to the swash. But, I thought you said counterclockwise. Did I hear it wrong or am I looking at it wrong? Thanks, your videos are a great service. I am certain I am learning alot more about my heli than if I just paid someone to build it for me. Andy

Step 20 - electronics placement. I noticed Bob that you placed your AR7000 receivers with the antennae on the same (horizontal) plane - I'm fairly sure in other videos you recommend to have the antennae on two different planes - one on the X axis and one on the Y axis.

Also why did you mount the battery stuffed down between the fan shroud and nose mount - it seems more difficult to remove if you need to swap batteries, since the standard 1900mah align pack doesn't last very long, I reckon you'll need a couple for a full day's flying.

Finless, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. It flew today!! Went over it at our LHS, just had some minor trim issues, but overall, it was right on. What a thrill to take a box of parts & make them fly, With help from Finless. Like I started with, Thank You, Thank you

Bob thanks for the great video! I have used your videos as guides to my 450, 600 and 700 builds. I watch them all first before going into the kit (especially on my first, the 450) and I must say, all of them have yet to experience a 'beginner builder's error' failure or crash for that matter. Thank you for letting me save both time and money on this new found hobby.

Have a build question for the 600 Nitro DFC.

How much should I tear down the pre-assembled tail to clean screws and threads and re-locktite? The whole shebang?

tnx

Shoe Goop is gummy brown butryl adhesive used for repairing shoes and varieties found in most hardware stores. You can use Loctite Bearing Retainer or even a spot of CA as an alternative.

Okay thanks! The bearing is pretty snug in the holder I wonder if it even matters?
