Yeah, I originally had the helical main gear on it but it became damaged and we didn't have replacements at that time during testing so I slapped an original straight tooth on it. I've never changed it out yet, I'd hate to waste a good main gear so I'll run it until it breaks.

Your Field Rep kit is ready whenever you're ready to send payment.

FWIW ... even the prototype testers had to buy their own kits.

Done with mine and ready to maiden. A little shell shocked that my AUW is 9lb. Was really hoping for my first <9lb 600. Oh well.

Mine weighs in at 3.96kg - 8.7lbs which is about 450g heavier than the my v1.. This is with Gensace 3300/30C which i used on the v1 too..

Its no longer what I class as a light 600 its now just average like a Synergy E5S, Trex 600Pro ...etc which come in around the ~4kg mark. Its really only the Logo 600 which I consider light weight 600 @ ~3.5kgs..

Wow, I havnt weighed mine yet but just picking it up vs the v1 the weight difference feels negligible (and thats with heavier motor and rx pack on the ult). Sure seems to fly just as light too. Infact I was almost hoping it would fly a little heavier then the old one but mine really doesnt.


Looks good OTS cant wait to hear what you think

I have very high hopes because of the very high vertical CG and low head design. I'm sure you could shave off 200g with an integrated bec and plastic cased servos. But I'd venture to say the airframe is typical in weight for its class. I'm ok with this since the drive train and tail look super robust. Weight well spent. The frame is tiny and "dense" which should make it ultra rigid and minimize any negative pendulum effects. My E5s is about 9.4lb on the same scale. Fusion weighs 9lb also. But both have motors that are about 60g heavier.

Yep your right, compared to the v1 all the added weight was worth it IMO (loved the v1 though!). Hope your maiden goes well btw I highly recommend trying the compass 615's. In my opinion their honestly the best 600 class blades available, I want to try cyclone 615's when their out.
