Default Bergen Intrepid Turbine Build Videos

OK, 1st of the Bergen Intrepid Turbine build videos is done! Quite the learning curve and this one took a while, but the rest of them should come much faster.

BIG thanks to Chris Bergen for all his help and patience with my 4 bazillion questions and concerns as we worked out the bugs and made sure the info in the WITB video was correct.

Enjoy!


*** UPDATE: 5/16/2017 - I had to pull these videos a few weeks ago to address a request to remove some copyrighted material. I've edited and re-rendered (In higher resolution!) all of the videos and finally found a place to host them so I could retain control over the content. If you find a link that does not work, please let me know via PM and I'll get it fixed ASAP. ***

OK.... straight out! These are GREAT vids.... I am impressed!
Chris Bergen should be happy!

Pinecone...... LEARN and understand how you share the BEST.... Kevin has it here!
Not calling you out but Kevin is doing it up here! Competition makes everyone better
Ya gotta spend the time and do it all the way and not just do it somewhere in the middle of a build as a afterthought! I can see Kevin spent the time to do a GREAT whats in the box!

Kudos Kev.... I am impressed for your first video!

I will watch your builds with great intent Kevin! And look forward to them!

Bob

Thanks Bob! It was a LOT of work, but I enjoyed the hell out of it. (Well, most of it)

At your suggestion, I've broken the video into smaller pieces and am rendering now. Will replace the links once they're all done.

As for the test flight, those will be done at the Circle City Flyer's club field up in Corona, CA. I'll be enlisting the help of Ron Keith who's got a lot of experience with these helis and who I'm sure will point out things I did incorrectly.

Thanks for the vids, it's a cool kit.

Probably something will never own, but very cool!

I just like seeing all this stuff go together.
