Default Gohbee Phazor 600e Build Videos

Cool guys! Just got this heli in da house and will be doing a full build video series on it!
I saw this fly at Bham and had to have one! Big thanks to David at Gohbee for sponsoring this build video series.
I am still working on what servos I will be using but for sure I will be using a Spartan Gyro!

For now this is just an announcement and a place holder. Tomorrow I will be shooting whats in the box and starting the build

What's in the Box
VIDEO LINK -> What's in the Box (36 Megs)

Manual Overview
VIDEO LINK -> Overview of the Manual (10 Megs)

Step 1 - Rear Frames

Step 2 - Front Frames
VIDEO LINK -> Step 2 (29 Megs)

Step 3 - Battery Tray
VIDEO LINK -> Step 3 (14 Megs)

Step 4 - Lower Frames
VIDEO LINK -> Step 4 (20 Megs)

Steps 5, 6, and 7 - Pinion Bearing Block, Frame Strap Supports, and Gyro Mount
VIDEO LINK -> Steps 5, 6, and 7 (22 Megs)

Steps 8, 9, and 10 - Motor Mount Brackets, Anti-rotation bracket, and Boom Clamps

I am skipping step 14 (landing gear) for video purposes. I will return and complete this.

VIDEO LINK -> Correction to Step 19b (12 megs)

Can't wait to see the progress of this build! Great new heli on the market. I got to look one of these over at B'ham and it's a really well thought out design.

I'm a little confused. Would the 600e be a phazor or a stinger ?

Is the Gohbee a keeper? I'm thinking about getting one and being the first one to fly a Phazor here in Germany...

And thanks again Bob for all your work and videos!!!

Looking good so far Bob.

The aluminum screws save a significant amount of weight and are made of 7075 aluminum so they are plenty strong.
There are some steel screws where needed.
Besides the aluminum screws look cool.

Yep I was very suprised at how strong the Ali screws are. I expected to strip one or 2 but have not and some things I do tend to tighten up really well (like the motor mount).

The frame IS very different for sure.... But it is also a TANK as in super strong feeling. Not sure I have come to any "I like it or not" conclusions yet... I need to get it done and fly it first

I like how it has break away skids, canopy posts etc etc. Very well thought out design for us crashers. I like the looks of the blue screws.

What Lipo are you going to run Bob?
