Default Compass 7HV setup thread.

is there a setup (components and weights) thread yet. lots of the forums have a sticky. i searched and can't find one that would qualify.

i'm considering the 7HV for my next e700. but, i'd like to see what guys are flying and what the AUW are like.

if you've got one, feel free to start on this thread and i'll ask the mods to sticky it once it hits critical mass.

thanks.

Align 700MX 510kv /w Revco 14t pinion
Castle Creations Ice2 120HV
BeastX
Spektrum AR7110 receiver
JR 8717HV cyclics
Align DS650 tail
Thunder Power G6 2S 1800mAh 45C for electronics
Thunder Power G6 6S 5000mAh main batteries
Governed at 1750/1850/1950

When it's released I'll use a AR7200BX with satellite to replace the receiver and BeastX. At that point I will also replace the tail servo with the MKS HBL980.

I just started on a second 7HV, which is going to be running DS610 cyclics for now, and a Scorpion 4035-500 since it's what I have on hand. When I can I'll make the machines more uniform over time. 2 7HVs in 2 weeks was already a lot. :-)
