Default Compass Knight 3D Nitro Build Videos

Ok sorry for the delay on this build guys.... Life and stuff

Anyway this kit is AWESOME... seriously... While building it, I think it is a sleeper heli that is probably one of the best 50 sized helis out there! I love the dampened motor mounting, the frame is a brick shit house, etc... So far this seems like it's going to be a great heli!

WHAT the hell was taking me so long (I said to myself).... so on with the build!

Video Link ->Installing the Motor and Mounts (48 Megs)

Video Link ->Servo Installation (50 Megs)

Video Link ->Servo Link Setup using the Futaba 10C (72 Megs)

Video Link ->Throttle Servo Setup using the Futaba 10C (54 Megs)

OK as stated I am moving around in the manual doing steps out of order for video reasons. Before the head build I am going to install the Main Shaft and Main Gear so I can do head setup. THIS IS WITHOUT installing the tail and belt for now. Please be aware of this.

OK on with the head build! YES I cheated and used my Knight 600E videos as it is EXACLTY the same. Why reshoot something that is identical!

OK this is where I really cheat and use a video from my Knight 600E build. You will notice the frames are NOT the Knight 3D.. Same setup though!

Maiden flight! Well it was my 5th getting things tuned. Still having gyro issues and getting that tuned for this heli but other than that... Check out the flip rate! Not my best flying since I am getting use the the heli and it flys very different than my 600n pro. Heck I had not even flown this heli inverted until this video flight. Enjoy!
