Default The Acrobatic arrived today! Now with Pics!

Well I ordered it tuesday and it arrived today!
I wanted to take pictures, but I left my camera in NC and I just could'nt wait until tomorrow to start on it.
I have it 75% together, but I will take some pics anyway.
I have to tell you the manual is not for the first time builder.
It has pictures of how the parts go together but hardly any text.
I must say that all the parts fit together very nice.
It's a BIG heli and the canopy is 1.5 times larger than my Predator.
The tail gear box is a thing of beauty!

Dang it! If you were going to build it in an hour or two you should have video'd it. Dang your fast.

See, now you know why those of us with Vario like Vario parts in our special helicopters.

Dan, I could'nt just leave it in the box now could I?
My camera will be back today and it's snowing so I'm sure I'll take some of it back apart to show the build. There are some really interesting stuff on this heli.
I have about 6 hours in it.

Jack
I'm with you.

Well the build is going well, I may just get in a hover late tomorrow.
There are many things about this heli that really impress me.
All the bolts just line up and screw right in.
The hardware is really nice.
Just fitted the canopy and the dust is itching me bad!
I'm going with the 4 servo 90 degree CCPM setup.
It's alittle different than I am used too but I am working the end points out to prevent binding.
I did'nt like the 3 servo 120 setup as the heli was not really designed for it, and too many comprimises (SP) had to be made to make me happy.
Something that will not make some owners happy is the servos cannot be serviced or taken out without splitting the frames. (taking 1 side off).

I do like this heli so far though
