That is correct. They will also be shipping to dealers this week as well.

I only had the cappack because on my previous heli where the ESC was installed in had battery wires over 12 inches. With the 700X, the battery wires stay nice and short, so no cappack needed.

I just did not want to cut it off and resolder everything.

Please elaborate!

How is 3 rotors better or worse than 4? Than 2? (I guess specifically related to RC not passenger size)

Inquiring minds what to know. . .

I'd love to give that a try, the only trouble I foresee which is why I asked is if HH would issue triplet blade sets. I'm too lazy arsed to work hard at balancing blades.

Once I get the funds I'll be making this purchase, what a beautiful bird!
From pictures I've seen and the manual, looks like a solid build.

Hoping a camera gimbal system to compete with the Align G800 is on the way.

Would anyone be interested in donating to my cause of a nice 700X?

Make up the pushrods and install on servos then install servos with the horns and pushrods attached. Also they give you two different shims that you may or may not need above the collar on the main shaft. Mine took the smaller shim and was a perfect fit with no up or down movement.




And this is where i quit for now.

Let me know if anyone has any questions i can try to answer.
Those servos look sexy, I assume the wires come heat shrinked out of the box? Is it true the wires are detachable from the servos? Any locking mechanism, are they solidly attached?

Man I want one.

I'm also interested in what others think of the main head and rotor assemblies. Look close at the bearings.

Can some of you guys that have built this bird give your thoughts on the no bearing in the center support.?.

There is only 2. The middle block does not have a bearing. The helis were flying very strong at Ircha, they didn't seem to miss a beat without it. The fit, finish and quality of the kit was very good IMO. No offence to Blade, but after some of my previous experience with some of their older models, I never thought I would say that. I think they are taking a big leap forward with this heli.

Definitely something strange on this one, you have a bearing block in the middle with a manual that shows it having a bearing, but the kits ship with no bearing.

I wonder if it is just a packing error. Doesit look like it will fit a bearing in there?

Definitely not a packing problem on the 700x, as Brian from Blade Helicopters( the boss over everyone) said its not there because it was not needed. But it leaves to question why it was removed. At any rate its good that the heli is working good for those that have one and I wish them well on the 700x its definitely there best to date.

The draftsmen that drew up the exploded views screwed up, evidently.

In another drawing it shows the "lower servo mount", as they call it, without a bearing.

#24, part number BLH5724.

Probably, another cost and weigh cutter that didn't need to be in there that was originally engineered to reside there.

The middle bearing was not needed and with a middle bearing it was found that it could cause some resonance in certain instances.

Also i believe one ofthe reasons why the middle support was basically kept the same with the step in the middle for the bearing was to keep the top collar from falling through when assembling. And to answer the question above yes the servo wires come as seen in the pics and are detachable from the servo.

It's just a dupe of the top mount minus the bearing. Cost cutter and it works. It had to have been in the original design to run a center bearing to say it caused resonance problems.

With a all the options for gyros and servos it would be nice if they would supply that info on the servo boxes.
