anything else? asking because Combo coming this week and I live outside US, so I'm going to order the extra things I need to complete the bird, and i would like to know everything i need before i order it.

Thank you in advance.
Connectors for the motor to ESC. We suggest 6.5mm bullets. (EFLA266 works well, but there are other brands that would work )

You will also need to make a series harness of some sort, so you'll need wire and additional connectors, depending on how you do it.

We plug the rx lipo directly into the AR7200bx, but I use a short extension rather than the battery directly to the AR7200bx.

That sounds like everything

For wiring the ESC, If you don't want to use a harness, I have found this method to work quite well on my 12s setups.



Sorry, its not the 700, just an old 600 pic of mine but I wire them all the same for 12s

I didn't have a picture of it, but this is what we do with our 700x's. It works really well and no bulky harness.

This battery would be fine?

The connectors you just send me Brian are 3 females and 3 males?

What EC5 connector would i need for the ESC? female or male?

Male on the ESC, female on the lipos. You will also need a bit of wire to extend one of the lipos battery leads to reach the front of the tray for plugging in your packs. I also use a balance wire extension for charging that rear pack.

On my thunder power lipos I did not have to extend the pack wires. I will show the pic later, we also have the battery oriented another way which has the wires parallel to the tray on top of the packs.

Here are some pics. With the battery mounted, make sure the strap buckles are on top to ease inserting the batteries. The castle cappack is not needed, It just was soldered on my ESC already and I just used it as is.

Receiver pack in the back behind the frame. Secured by a strap.

Let me know if you have questions

We do not use the terminology "male" and "female" for EC connectors (EC2, EC3, EC5), we use "BATT" and "DEV" for "BATTERY" and "DEVICE." "Male" and "female" can lead to confusion because the female conductor is used in a male plastic housing, and vice versa.

Sticking with "BATT" and "DEV" is simple - put the "BATT" connector on batteries, put the "DEV" connector on your devices like ESCs, charge leads, etc.

Thanks for posting pics zoomtt. What type of wire are you using to plug your rx pack into the beast? Looks like its an EC3 to 2 servo wires that go to the beast. Is this something you had to make yourself or can it be purchased already made?

This is the first time I am powering my electronics by lipo as I've always used a BEC.

Thanks!

Thanks for clearing that up David. It is a bit confusing since the plastic housing is reversed on the plugs (bigger plastic size on the female or "BATT" side). I just refer to them as male and female because that is what it says on the packages I bought and how they are listed on multiple websites where I have ordered my ec5s (Readyheli, Amainhobbies, epbuddy, etc). I do see them listed as batt/dev on Horizon though.

For HV setups, I make my own harness with 2 servo leads into my RX soldered to a deans plug (or ec3/5 depending on what your RX battery uses). You can probably find some companies that make these harnesses if you are not comfortable making your own. Just plug your pack into the adapter to power up the RX.

Default Servo wires seem too close for comfort

I'm at the servo installation step, and the way the servos are mounted (wires pointing down), does not give much room at all between the wires and main gear.
Of course the leads can be bent to some extent and zip tied to the frame, but this is close. If slipped to some degree, could actually contact the top of the main gear.
Any comments on this (at least just alleviate my concerns )?

Edit: I should mention I bought the combo kit, with the covered, detachable servo leads.

Thanks!

Check out the pics I posted. Zip tie to the carbon piece on top of the main gear. No issues.

Just wanted to see if this is correct. I made all my links to the length stated in the manual and leveled the swash. When putting the head on to get zero pitch I noticed the follower arms are not at 90 degrees. Is this how its supposed to be? Usually on my other helis they are at 90.

those arms do not need to be 90, fyi I had to lengthen both the links from servos to swash and the links from swash to grips about 5 turns or so apiece to get 0 degrees pitch at servo arms 90.
