Thank you Juan. First night back wasn't so bad. Thank you for the complement. I have having a heck of a time fitting the canopy, did you have any trouble?

David, First time I also had some trouble adjusting it, too bad it ain't built for a better fit.

What I did was open a hole up front on the bottom side, here is a couple of pics what I did with mine and it worked perfectly, it avoids the canopy to move sideways.


As you can see here, I opened a small hole beneath for the lower tray screw to fit in:


Then using the big plastic nuts I can tight up the canopy.

Default Power On!!!

So today I got to do power on and I have to say I am really glad I got the BTU, allows me to hook up to my iPad and make adjustments. I ran the motor test and had them all backwards so gave me a chance to fix that. Need to hook up my transmitter and get that fixed. Anyone else using a DX9 and able to share their set up process?

Thanks. Hope people are finding elements of this build thread useful - especially mistakes to avoid.

Good thing the build is coming fine.

Here is my DX9 controller setup:

Pressing the Setup button and turning on the controller for the first level of configuration:

Model Type: HELI
Swash type: Normal
Flight mode setup: Switch 1: Switch B
Switch 2: INH
Hold Switch: Switch H

Channel Assign (Page 2: Channel Input Config): Gear: B (I configured Gear Channel as I have the U channel from the FC connected here, if you have something else as AUX 1 or AUX 2 connected to the U channel, then you have to assign Switch B or whatever switch you intend to use to switch modes to the channel connected on your Rx)

// Press Back to exit this menu and press menu again to go into Normal Configuration for the selected model

Servo Setup, you'll use this to configure Switch B on top in order to access GPS Atti,Atti or Manual mode (Or Failsafe depending on what you want during the Assistant Configuration). You'll be playing with the GEAR channel Travel adjustment, I have mine +85% / -85% so I can access these three modes.

Throttle Cut: 40% and Select Switch H (Which we selected for Hold mode on above inst.)
Throttle Curve, leave it 0 - 25% - 50% - 75% - 100% on all three curves
Pitch Curve:
Normal Mode: 10% - 10% - 10% - 10% - 10%
Idle Up 1 Mode: 52% - 52% - 52% - 52% - 52%
Idle Up 2 Mode: 95% - 95% - 95% - 95% - 95%

That's all I have into my DX9 and the Quad has already more than 15 flights with no problems.

I bound the receiver to the transmitter an want to keep moving, anxious to fly but not until I know it is really ready to go.

That's great. Will I be able to use some of the adjustment for my Futaba 14sgh?

Btw, I really hate putting on es5 connector. Just snapping on to the plugs was a pain, I destroy 4 male housing before I can get one in. I also had to change my power cable from the gryphon pdb from 8awg to 10awg due to ec5 connector.

This week I was working on soldering a server power suppu to use with the icharger 4010. Still have a lot of work to do.

But I bought a ladybird v2 to practice on flying so I don't totally destroy the sky hero. Too had if rash into a tree and crack the main frame. Back to amazon to get parts.

Would you take a shot of the front close enough to see the camera looking out the cover?

Setishock, Here is the pic, as of now, the only modification I made was to cut a little more the hole on the upper side as the camera was facing slightly down, problem I had was that the artificial horizon on the iOSD was not where it was supposed to be, no that I opened the hole a little more, the camera is looking straight forward.

So finished the FC install and think I am ready to go, this weekend will be the first maiden flight (fingers crossed) which means this will be a long week, waiting until then.

The Trooper Q700 seems identical, but never in stock. For me, I like having the real thing - not a knock off.

David,
The attached pic on your last post is where the FC final place will be? It is too up front and not over the frame's C.G.

Juan:

When I checked with the company I purchased my quad from they said it was good to go. I am about 2 1/2 inches back from the front frame edge.

I've been reading this thread with a mild interest. I say mild because I'm up to my kidneys in models as it is. But I'm real interested in why you picked this airframe over others. What about it captured your attention?

Default Sky Hero Spyder 700 Kit build

I like the style and unique look of the model too and I will soon be ordering one to the fleet.
Any negatives ?
Is it too heavy?
