    To load a video on the site, you need to upload to youtube first, and then post the link here. We just don't have the server space to allow direct video uploads.

    And on a flybarless head, it has leading edge blade grips. Flybar heads usually have a trailing edge link.

    The head, when the blades are installed, will be positive pitch on both from the way I see it in the pictures. The head turns clockwise on these helicopters so if the blades are up and down in the picture, the top will have the leading edge to the right, the bottom will have the leading edge to the left. Hope that makes sense.

    Hey James, definitely take your time and as you have been doing, don't be afraid to ask questions. That is what we are here for. And no worries on the brain fart, with as drugged up as I have been for almost a week now with my back, I'm not quite thinking clearly anymore either lmao. Can't wait for this thing to actually stop hurting... This sucks, can't do anything but walk to the fridge and get some more tea, and even lifting the pitcher hurts...

    Looking good so far James! There are lots of things about helis that are counter intuitive. The more you learn about them the more surprising it is that they fly at all!

    Tony, Thank you very much hang in there you look so young to be having major back issues hope you didn’t injure at some point.
    Smoggie , Thanks I’m slow at it trying to follow aligns schematics. I normally work on all kind of gizmos during the week but these watch screws and small parts are fun not to lose on these helicopters.

    Hi James, your build is coming along great, don't worry about the Brain farts we have all been there, I remember the first Align I build after having had a Blade 400 which had trailing edge blade grips I installed the Align blade grips upside down. It's just that you want to do it perfect and are overthinking it a bit.

    Admiral, Thanks. yes sir I’m doing a lot of overthinking and over complicating on this build , The real fun will began when I go to set the DX9 and microbeast FBL up.
    I work on 500k machines all the time at work and get them back up and running. It’s just amazing how Digital and computerized everything has become in the RC world. Electric has come a long ways.
