Hey there! I tried sending you a message but it says that your PM's are full. I was recently given a brand new assembled Forza 700A by a gentleman who was using it as a decoration in his machine shop. I can't for the life of me find an english manual anywhere online. Another member said that I should message you to see if you could help or point me in the right direction. Any help would be much appreciated. This is my first 700 sized heli and I'd like to learn more about it to understand its mechanicals. Thank you!

Default What are you working on today?

Going to change my charging setup to 4 small chargers so I can avoid parallel charging. Had my first OOPS moment at the field when I left my two 6S packs in series when connecting their balance leads in parallel.

Four ISDT Q8 chargers on the way.

Working a bit at a time on a Steam "Armor" 700.

A very nice kit so far-very well thought out.

Just curious...
In the head (and tail) grip assemblies, are the thrust bearings sandwiched between the radial bearings?

ridge-runner,

"Just curious...

Yes for the thrust bearings on the head. The radial bearings are sealed as opposed to the usual shielded, which I thought was interesting.

The instructions give you the option to put the thrust bearings for the tail between the radial bearings or on the end-I chose to sandwich them in between as this always makes the best sense to me.
