Default 2 1/2 + years after release.

Finally commissioned my 6HVU !
I always wanted to buy and build this helicopter my interest never passed always coming back to read more and more regarding setups and flight characteristics about this well like solid performer.
I am very happy with the quality design , a big smile still remains on my face after testing initial setups through to enjoyable maiden flights .
I still have a little bit more tail and governor tuning to be done and I'm looking forward to some really great flying sessions with the 6HVU to come.
My setup :
COMPASS 6HV Ultimate.
COMPASS C 40260 KV 505.
HOBBYWING PLATINIUM PRO HV100A ESC.
SPIRIT PRO FBL.
OMG H4-ST-BF20S (3) OMG H4-ST-BF07Q (1)
SPEKTRUM AR8000 X + TM1000.
ZEAL 620/ 97'S.
2S LiPo 1300mAh 25C RX.
12S = 6S 3600mAh 35C (2).

Wiring was nothing but the biggest challenge of this build!, I can not understate that my LYNX 450X-L with a similar setup was easier to do.

Well worth the wait and hours put in to this build.
A big thanks to the Compass Heli community for an abundance and wealth of information regarding the 6HVU , absolutely priceless .
Cheers to all.

+1. Your effort isn't un-noticed. Nice and clean. The Spirit "S" sets it apart in the thousands of 6HVU's present at any given fun fly event.

Hey Rob43 I tried to make my canopy even more individual today but I think maybe I went about it the wrong way!

I am afraid I can concur. I tried the same. Interestingly, my results were stunningly similar to yours. Gave me a good excuse to acquire a Mask Pro custom. Loved it. Wish I still had it.

Mine are SAB canopy edge protectors. I got them locally from RotorQuest and from AnythingHeli in the US. I have them on all my Chronos and 550U canopies (checkout the pics above) and will be putting them on the Atom and 7HV canopies too. Useful in preventing edges from getting damaged during canopy mounting and removal. It also protects the edges from damage when being hit by links.

I use shoegoo to glue the protector to the canopy edges.

I used sab edge gauards too but I used then flexible ca instead of shoe goo lightly drizzled along the edge from the inside. A little goes a long way since it wicks in and runs along the edge.

Decided to fly my 550U despite the on and off drizzle this morning. I was finally able to put it through its paces and what I can say is WOW... This heli flies beautifully... High head speed, low head speed no problem at all. Can be as stable as you want it to be but put the pedal to the metal and it really moves. This is the perfect single lipo powered heli match to the Chronos.

The 550mm KBDD are a great match to this heli... Tracks like it is on rails. With the 550U I can do rainbows forever with minimal adjustments to the rudder and aileron... Very sim like. The only fault I can find is that my Gens Ace 5000 mah 45C lipos gets hot after a 4 minute flight with 15-20% remaining.

I also tested its low head speed capabilities with a Turnigy 6600 mah 4S lipo. Very smooth and stable... I flew the 550U for 6 minutes with the 4S lipo and landed with ~25% power remaining on the lipo. A few pics...









Turnigy 6600 mah 4S 60C with hard case weighing 830 grams. I got this since it weighs just a little bit more than my 6S lipos. CoG is perfect with this lipo, with the Gens Ace which are 820 grams, I have to move them just a bit forward to get perfect CG.



To prevent water from getting in the FBL controller when flying in a drizzle or when it is snowing, I covered the FBL controller with scotch tape extending all the way past the connectors.
