Looks good. Quick tip though, put your exhaust deflector on th eother way round. It will lbe less likely to kink in flight that way

Are you sure Tom, it doesn't look right or good for that matter, everyone I see has it the way I had it, even Bob's 700.

What is everyone doing on this? Does the deflector actually kink?

Man, I don't think it looks right.

Well I worked most of the day on the wiring job and this is as close as I could come to the Horizon Hobby installation of the AR 7100/R on the T-Rex 700 LE. What do you guys think:

This is theirs:

Not too bad eh? I have not velcroed the RX yet and the satellite RX is not mounted yet.

Looking great !!!

I came up with an idea awhile back that looks pretty good too.

You can take a strip or two of the align velco (Same that you have on the AR7100R) and cut it into pieces about 1-1/2 long, then use those to symetrically wrap the wires.

I like that Mark, because the zip ties are a pain and the can damage the wires. What do you think those blue things are on the Horizon Hobby setup, they can't be zip ties, can they?

Yeah thats how I have all my deflectors, before I did mine I saw them kink on many occasions. take a look at the align pipe, it has a rubber brace on it to stop just that.

Its not a major thing at all really, im sure you will be fine with them the other way round if it looks better to you

Tom,
what happens when it kinks, does the motor quit? Also, what causes the kink, is it the fact that the deflector gets warm and becomes more flexible? Does it happen in flight?

Probably bad tuning :o No it doesnt quit it but the golden rule in tuning is "get it in, get it out" I just prefer to run the the way I do. Probably woukd never make a difference

Today, worked on the heli after a long four day trip.

Reconfigured the fuel system by taking the OS BubbleLess clunk out and converting the middle bung into a tank filler. It sure was a pain in the arss to take that bung out, I'm glad I don't have to do that for awhile... I made the outside hole the fuel feeding line to the motor by installing another bung with a Fuel Magnet clunk and Hayes clunk line. From there, fuel line to a 2 way Align filter and then to the motor with an Align fuel line shut-off.

I think it looks great, talked to Bert Kammerer on Twitter and read a lot of posts here and in RynRyder and they all like this setup.

Tom, I also turned the exhaust deflector the way you suggested, but I shortened it a bit and I think it looks much better now, let me know what you think.

Here is some pics.:

I also finalized my electronics placement, everything is velcroed or double side taped to the tray. I also installed the SwitchGlo remote switch as an ignition back up.

I also installed the CY Super Stubz 4105. I know Glenn you had them on, how far out you are with those things from the Flybar cage. I went to 200 mm. The instructions say, to go in at least 33mm from the end of the Flybar. I did some measuring and some math and came to 200mm. I know the Align ones are suppose to be at around 207mm.. Any advise is appreciated.
Here is a picture of that and some more Fuel System.

Panos,

That looks great, all the time you have put into the build has paid off. Really neat

Looks great!

Just one thing though... I'm not sure if you already done this, but if that's Hayes Clunk line, you might want to cut it 1or2mm shorter...Once it get soaked in fuel, it'll expand a few mm's... Keeping it like it is, once soaked it might be too long

Well you know what the say Tom, it's not about the destination, it's all about the journey . I really enjoy building things and this is what I like about this hobby. I also build high end computers with water cooling and I overclock the crap out of them. The only draw back to spending all this time building it is, when it crashes it brakes my hart.... haha.

Anyway, I'm not in a rush to finish it, the weather here in NY sucks right now, we have a major NorEaster. I just finished playing around with my 8 HP Troy Built snow blower, cleaning the yard .

Thank Bart101, I will do that, I wasn't sure about that, my thinking was that it would shrink, but if it expands, I'll take a couple of mm off of it.

I know, it's still coming down, man, this winter has been very loooong .

Took the Hayes clunk line out to soak it in fuel and broke the nipple on the plastic bung . I ordered some Quick UK aluminum bungs from Esprit, they are on the way. That Hayes fuel tube is making the fuel black, I guess it's a good thing to soak it before use.

Also put a set of CY 710 blades on and setup the pitch curves. I went +/- 12 degrees on Idle Up 1 and 2 and -5 low in Normal and +10 high for motor brake in. My elevator and aileron pitch are both tuned at 8 degrees.

Has anyone used this Outrage RX packs before? I just got this 2S 3600mAh for a great price and the size and weight are just right, I like it. Got it from RCHover.

Thanks Heli Davey,

I got some Deans on it though, because all my batteries and RXs are with Deans.

Nice shop! You really ought to cover that water heater though. That'd save you some money through those arctic NY winters of late.

terrabit,

Cover it with what? Are you talking about the hot water tank or the furnace? Both of them have insulation in them. Both new, about 5 years old and let me tell ya, in furnace years that is young.
The one I replaced, solid cast iron, weighed a ton, came with the house.
The house was build the year I was born, 1963.

Beautiful bird. You'll love here when you see her flying.
Just one piece of advice (and you might have solved it already, I can't really see it on the pictures). Use small pieces of fuel tube on both ends of the tail control rod from the servo to the bell crank to avoid the carbon tube vibrating.
