^^^ Nice! Are those RJX or KST servos on the eXo? If so did you need to use any spacers?

EDIT... A more few questions:

1. Have you maidened the eXo yet? It looks complete on the pic above.
2. What lipos are you using on the eXo? Do 6S 5000 mah lipos fit?
3. eXo AUW?

1. I did the maiden this afternoon just hovering a few packs in the yard and dialing in gains and rates. Loving it so far.
2. Im using 3600 mah but 5000mah 65c heavy duty turnigy lipos do fit! Canopy and all and the CG is still perfect. Can you say 10 min flight times!?
3. Have not put it on the scale yet. Ill do it soon and report back

The servos are KST. I only needed one spacer that comes in the kit to adjust the elevator servo.

I really like the looks of the white motor wires, white on the landing gear, and the colored tail fin.

Using 3600mah packs in the videos. Here's a flight with no canopy. I enjoy seeing the belts spinning around in flight.

^^^ Excellent shakedown flights dominator. Very cool to see the belt and motor spinning on the flight without the canopy on.

Posting other two vids I came across...

Here's my newly completed eXo:


All up weight with GensAce 3700mAh pack is 2831g (6lb 4oz).

To get correct CoG the pack sits far forward on the tray:


I have tied the ESC leads to the sides, allowing the battery to slide in effortlessly even with the canopy on:


Now I'm just waiting for time and weather to coincide

Outstanding!!! Enjoy your new helicopter! I know what you mean about time and weather. I wanted to fly yesterday, but it was just too sloppy out and it got colder.

Let us all know your impressions!

Outstanding tsoebirk!

Can I make a request? Is it possible to take pics of your eXo without the hood/canopy thus displaying the servos and other electronics plus with the Gens Ace Lipo? I want to see the components you used along with how the lipo placement.

Also, are those the stock RotorTech mainblades?

Will do. Probably won't get around to it before the weekend though.
Yes, stock blades.
