Wenn fixing the Swash plate, do you drill small holes for the screws or do you just put the in there and let the Swash ball push against it?

I forgot to right that, I need to order pinions from Europe to avoid taxes
The holes are tapped already if you use the same grub screw as the skids.

The Savox is the 5065-450, has great power and reasonably light. I have run a few of the 450kv and 500kv versions in different helis and they have been really good motors.

Well I finally did it!!
I just ordered a 600 sx v2 and it can’t get here fast enough
I tried and looked everywhere, but I couldn’t find a 12t pinion in stock anywhere. So first few flights will be with the 11 t pinion.
I was lucky and found a second hand Jive 80 hv, so I’ll be using that instead of the Align/Hobbywing esc.
I won’t be able to fly it hard enough to get the jive 80 to shut down with my flying)
I will take my time putting this one together and hopefully enjoy the build

Awesome - enjoy your new build! No problem with that Jive 80HV. I used to run a Savox 5065-550 for a while in a Compass 6HV Ultimate with a 2400 rotor speed with 615mm blades and 13.5 pitch. It was crazy powerful, and could shut it down, but never in any other setup did it even get hot. Now in my 600SX V2, running Pyro 700-52 with 11t and it has plenty of power without even getting the Jive warm.

That sounds nice guys
I just hope that the Swash and tail behave nice.

I read somewhere in here about the anti static kit and how to mount it. I know how to do it on the tail.

But they talked about a cable from boom to motor mount or some other places and honestly reading that thread confused me more on what to do and where to mount a “front” static kit.
Where have you mounted your static kit beside the tail kit?

You just run a wire from the motor mount anywhere you want on it (I use the lower screws on the counter bearing support) then to the boom. I use the hole in between the 4 tail boom mounting holes. A picture is easier.... someone will have one. It's hard to describe.

Google Mikado ground wire or static wire etc.

In the top pic he crossed over the flybar and to the other side which is odd. Then he went ro the lower portion of the motor plate. You can use the side of the motor plate or where the main shaft counter bearing brace screws into the motor counter bearing. Doesn't matter.

Slow build, but I want to do everything right the first time.
Frame came together nicely and with out problems.
Tail shaft I polished starting with a 600 grit, then 800,1000,1200,1500,2000,and finished with a 3000 grit. It’s very smooth with a mirror finish now 🙂

Tail rotor I’m not so happy with, I just can’t get the blade holders to turn smoothly. I have pulled them apart a few times now end result is still the same and disappointing.

A few pics from the build

Btw I think the frame is sexy as hell)
