Default The Official ALeeSUSA Rush 750 Evolution Build Thread

Hi folks,

While I don't have my kit in my hands yet, I wanted to let you all know this will be the place holder for the Rush 750 Evolution Build Thread. The thread will be starting with a short video showing "What's In The Box" and will move from there into the build. There will be hundreds of pictures with explanations, some explanations will be in-depth to help you build your Rush 750 Evolution!

Scott

I got the "Order Processing" email today. Hope to see the "Order Shipped" email tomorrow. I will be building it immediately. Maybe I will take some photos along the way and if they can be of any help for your build thread, I will gladly post them or send them to you.

My build will be early next year. Gotta regenerate some funds for a new ESC, Rx and motor. I still have the 560kV, so I can use that in the mean time, until I have enough $$ for a new Ultimate.

I will follow along with great interest!

I'm excited to see you start this thread as I'm sure your Evo will arrive before mine. An advanced Thank You!

I can't wait to see your build Scott. I'm hoping I don't trash mine before yours is built.

Build starts tomorrow! I just finished setting up the room for the "What's in the Box" and introduction video. Unfortunately, the room isn't well lit enough to shoot video in it at night, but tomorrow...

Thanks Scott. I think I'm giddy for you! I hope that filming doesn't take too much joy out of your build.

And now, here we go... I got a late start today. Gotta remember it's the holidays so the tree had to go up!

First up is page 1 of the manual. Note that the kit does not come with a printed manual or a manual on CD/USB stick. Instead you download the manual here: http://www.aleesrc.com/images/alees-...evo_manual.pdf .

Having the manual online as a living document makes it very easy for us to make updates when folks notice something is amiss.

This will be very detailed. It is detailed for a purpose--to serve as an online reference for people to use when they have questions about the build process. With that in mind, there will be pictures and tips that many people know already. Remember, though--we were all new to the hobby at one time. It is important to pass that knowledge on to those who are new or who are thinking of participating in the greatest hobby in the world!




Bag 1 requires both red and blue thread locker. Also, get some 99 percent isopropyl alcohol.



Measure all your screws! This is important because sometimes, as above, you'll find screws that have different lengths.



Soak your screws for a bit in isopropyl alcohol. Some folks may use a different solvent, but the purpose is the same--this removes the oil that is used in manufacturing the screws. It is important because threadlocker in general, does not like oil. There are oil resistant brands of threadlocker such as locktite 243, but it is a good practice to soak all metal to metal contact screws and then dry them off with a paper towel while turning the screws--this will remove the oil.



The flap inserts. These hard plastic inserts help hold the spindle more rigidly in flight. The are keyed so installation is easy.



The flap inserts just slide in at first. Then...



...use your finger to press in the flap insert--gently turn your finger at the same time--you'll feel the flap insert drop into place.



Now we install the head button. It takes just one M3 x 10 screw.



Pretty self explanatory, but make sure you use some blue thread locker--if you don't you'll have a high risk of your head button coming off in flight, striking the blades, then becoming a bullet. Alternatively, you can leave it off with no performance loss.



Tighten the M3 X 10 screw down.



There are two different dampers that come with the kit. Hard and Medium. Black to me seems to be the harder of the two. Since I used the black dampers in my Legacy Rush, I decided to use the same dampers here.



The dampers just slide into the openings on either side of the head block.



Sometimes the dampers slide in with a pop!

Next post, we'll continue with more of page one of the manual.

Manual page 1, continued.



Installing the pinch screws. The pinch screws are used to clamp the assembled 2SIC head assembly to the main shaft. The manual states to use blue thread locker at this step, but DO NOT do so at this time. Instead, simply screw the M3 X 10 screws down until they clear the sides of the 2SIC head at this time. DO NOT tighten them at this time. We will apply thread locker and tighten the screws once the head has been installed on the main shaft and the swash plate has been mechanically leveled.



I know the pinch screws are not shown in this picture--I caught that before I installed the pitch/swash driver levers! The pitch/swash driver levers are shown in the bag.



The standoff ball links are installed into the post nearest the bearing using RED thread locker.



Applying red thread locker.



Apply RED thread locker sparingly to only two or three threads. Wipe off the excess. Remember, RED thread locker is permanent and can only be removed with a lot of force or by applying heat to the mated parts before removal.



Installing the standoff ball.



Orientation of the pitch/swash driver levers. Note that they fit over the posts on the 2SIC head. This relieves stress on the screw and provides extremely free movement of the arms while static and in flight.



The levers simply slide over the posts as shown above. Install using an M3 X 8mm screw using BLUE thread locker.



Tightening the pitch/swash driver levers--see, I told you I had the pinch screws installed first!



While tightening, check for free rotation. If you find the pitch levers to rotate anything but freely and smoothly, back off the screw just a tad.



Pitch/swash driver levers installed. Note that they line up in the center of the 2SIC head.



Next comes the radius arms. The parts in the picture above are arranged as they are installed.

We'll finish page 1 in the next post!
