Interesting observation on the bearing block captive nuts Bob - I pulled the top bearing block out when I noted the radial play and didn't notice the screws specially loose - the bearing however definitely was not a snap fit hence the goop - I think your vice idea of seating the nuts great idea. I'll certainly be watching this for the future and will be interested to hear your/Will's experience after a few flights !

Bob, great build series again....
One question though: I always put a main shaft in the bearings before tightening the frame bolts. This way I check the smoothness of the shaft rolling while tightening the bolts. It also seems a good way to guarantee the squareness of the frame.
Is there any objection to this method as I do not see you using it?

No and in fact I have shown that SAME thing on both the 600E and 600N. DANG IT you are correct and I missed showing that. Hmmm I might reshoot and add a little section showing that since I missed it.

Thanks for reminding me!

Bob

Hi Bob.-

Any idea when you are going to have the next videos ready.
I just got my frames this week and probably will start build this coming week.
Thanks

Default Brass servo spindle replacement

Put my HFX frames in hard twice the past 10 days (from PSU failures) and the frames came through with flying colours - tough stuff these (CF). ANyway always worried a custom bit might break and sure enough the brass spindle on one of the lateral cyclic servos snapped at the top of the servo wheel - didn't have anything like this so drilled out the remnant - put an M3 bolt in and cut down a TREX swash spindled ball link to fit - needed a couple of spacers under the CF top plate bolts & works a treat and only 10 mins to do so thought I'd pass it on in case anyone else gets stuck !

Sorry for the delay in getting these done but since this is Will's heli I was waiting on his X9303 to show up here and as you all know they were delayed.

Anyway 2 more up today. Next up is servo bridges and final parts. I am going to try and get them done this week.
