    So I'm starting to get my online orders in the mail. I already received my 470LM kit as my last crash is a total Rekit :( . I figured I should start building something. So I'll start with the small helis first then big ones later.

    I will begin my 450 Sport build. I will try to use some parts that was salvaged from the last crash of my 450 Sport. I bought some Align servos and I'm using my old KST servo that is a survivor. I'll clean her up a bit more put some new grease etc. I might do the same for the Align Servos.

    I will post back soon :D

    No need to rush builds or rebuilds. That's when you make mistakes :).

    My bad namaspilot. I should of said, we make mistakes. Shoot, I make mistakes when I don't even rush LMAO!. Winter time is the best to do rebuilds. We don't even have winter here in Florida... it seems. The time for me to rebuild is mostly after a crash and that's common :).

    I've been doing clean install windows 1903 on all my systems today. Also done some clonezilla backups. On one of my systems I realised the usb hack that I installed has somehow malfunctioning. I'm going to replace it tomorrow. I hope they still sell them in ebay. Once I get all these things done I hope to get back on rebuilding these helis.

    Managed to get a bit of time today. I thought I'd start with the servos. Give them a clean, and apply some new grease. I also checked the bottom of the servo PCB to see if it's insulated, sure enough it is. However I did noticed there is no threadlock on the screws for the servo, so I would be applying that for sure. :) I do hope I can get some helis built in time for summer during the non windy periods as it gets kinda windy down here. And I've crashed a few helis flying on windy days :(

    Servos are now greased up on the gears and a dash of oil on the bearings. :D Now just finished testing them all.

    Oh man work has told me I'm going back to my double shifts again. I'm going to have to put this hobby on pause again. :(

    Happy flying guys, see you all next time.
