Quick question about the battery tray pin...Is it normally hard to remove? I have to pull quite a bit even if I lift the battery tray to relieve some of the weight.

Already read it before the heli showed up .

Thanks for putting that together...it's very comprehensive.

I've also gone through the Chronos picture thread and I've got a pretty good idea of how I'm going to do it.

Yes. Newer battery trays have a very tight fit and can be hard to insert or remove the pin. Over time it gets easier or you can take a drill bit the same size and open the hole a little

Drilled out the battery tray hole a little....It's much smoother now

Alright Gents, started my build today and first look she looks great! I got all the CF edges sanded and then per the manual started with the head! Couple issues I'm a bit miffed with because it will hold up building these particular parts!


- one of the inside bearing washers between the thrust and radial bearing is all chewed up on the surface against the bearings. Not sure it that will make a difference or not? Looking at it, it might work if I put the smooth side against the Radial bearing and the chewed up side against the thrust bearing.

- and lastly, thrust bearing washers are supposed to have one small ID and one large ID correct? well I have one small ID and 3 large ID! How important is the ID? think it will work ok with 2 large ID washers?

Not off to a good start! LOL I figured I would get a hold of Experience Monday and see if I can get these parts replaced. But until then kinda stuck with the head I think?

Any thoughts?

Also I just noticed there is another set of Thrust bearings behind the inside radial bearing as well! Not in the manual I'm so confused! LOL

Not sure about the other questions, but the new grips have two sets of thrust bearings in the head. Maybe the manual is an older version?

See the build thread here for some good photos.

I called Experience and Steve their Compass guy was not in. So they had me email him with pics, So hopefully I will have a response sometime today!

Also will the Swash plate loosen up and break in on its own? I took the advise from Dunkonu23 to disassemble and clean it really well then put it back together. Slightly looser, but the screws holding the brass insert are just shy of snug with loctight. Just worried they will come loose in flight?

No worries my swash is the same way. I did use high strength loctight. I tightened the screws until the swash started to get tight then backed off just a hair. Ive been beating the crap out of mine every week and nothing has come lose. Also add some oil to the swash to help keep it loose.

If you fly in really low temps you may need to adjust the swash so its not too tight when you go fly.

As you can guess, I take apart everything! I think if you follow the suggestion to use high strength thread lock, you'll be fine. Thanks, Dominator!

Regarding the Battery Tray Pin-I chamferred the end that is inserted into the frame/battery tray slightly.

It made all the difference in getting it installed easily!

I talked to Steve at Experience RC today and my thrust bearings and washer will be shipped tomorrow! Happy about that.

How are you guys setting your head dampening on the Chronos for the first flights? I know it comes down to feel, but where to start?
