That's what parents are for.

Or, better yet, grandparents: they usually take great pride in undermining a parent's authority and spoiling the grandkids.

Do you by chance mean the Sport model? If so, the only real difference is the belt-driven tail on the Sport vs. the torque tube on the Pro. (There are other differences, but they're immaterial to the build.)

Default YS 50 and Align Pipe

Hello,
I have a quick question about using YS 50. Do you need a reveres fuel line back from carburetor to fuel tank ( and or header tank) ? Also is it safe to use a fuel magnet with the YS.

Depends what he is calling "micro". I have a futaba nano 3155 on throttle and on the needle and each weight mere 20.4gr and still they are like 0.12sec, metal geared and support 6V

I easier trust my bird with that servo than a 9254 that I used to have on all my birds until they started to overheat and lock up :p

Very nice video's. I really needed to see the proper way to setup a CCPM machine. The only thing I noticed is that Align seems to have fixed the link length issues with the swash. Mine was at the center of travel with the 30.5mm length, I did have to adjust the links from the servo's to the bell crank and then level the washout and mixing levers.

Thumbs up Fuel Tubbing around frame to protect wires

You guys probably know this already, but I was looking through the Videos (great BTW) on the electric placement.

Bob mentions to put tie wraps through small fuel tubing, protecting the wires from rubbing with vibrations.

Then leaving wire loose has it wraps over the frame, again to prevent damage to the wire under vibrations. One trick is to take small peace of fuel tubing and slice a slit length ways, then put small amount of cv inside. Now spread the tubing apart and place on the frame edge, now you can secure you wires tightly as they will vibrate on the rubber tubing not the frame.

Has I say you probably know this but its a quick nice trick. I can not take credit for this, just passing it along.

Finless mentioned that idea in one of the videos even though he didn't demonstrate it.
