Default It's ready :)

Well... Just finished rebuilding and setting up my secondhand Stingray
Bought it used and I don't trust machines I haven't built so I teared it down and did a complete rebuild.

Glad I did because I found some slightly notchy bearings, stripped belts and some general no-no's (stripped screws and very tight links)

Found the setup of the TG multi quite easy coming from CP helis.
I used a digital pitch gauge instead of the paper-thingy that came with the kit for more accuracy. Set 26 degrees pitch each way since it was half of the 52 degrees in the manual
Took about 20min from start to finish. Including setting up the recovery.

So now I'm ready for my maiden flight..... BUT ITS RAINING And the weatherman says rain for the next 3-4 days.
Hoping it lets up for moment so I get a chance to fly or I'm going crazy, haha.

Got in 4 flights today and I can report..... it's AWESOME
Had to re-wire my brain NOT to fly smack as stops and rudder authority are "different" from my 700, but it's still in one piece and shiny

Just have to keep it atleast three mistakes high until parts start flowing again.
