cbdane Very Nice job mate, Flybarless and E power rocks doesnt it.

Worth every cent, very nice clean crisp look too mate, i was going to go the Bonta Head but went for the 3DX instead, your should have some serious roll rates when tweeked.

Default 700E HS

700E
4035-560 14T
CC HV110

I have setup 3 head speeds, 1600, 1700 and 1900
1900 works out to be ok.
Using the governor I can give full pitch (11 degr) without the HS dropping a single rpm!
When I select the lower HS's you can hear a strange metal scraping sound.
As if a bearing is about to die.
I was told this could be a motor timing issue.
The timing of the HV110 is set to 12kHz which seems to be default.
There's an option Outrunner Mode without saying what freq. that one is using.
Yeah, the motor runs relatively warm here as well...

Anybody out there having the same kind of setup and possibly the same issue?
Would like to use a low HS here, no 3D, some loopings and rolls and that's about it.
Thanks.

I recommend investing another $20/pack and going with the Zippy 6s1p 5000H. Not based on my own experience but on reports from a buddy who flies 12s electric ducted fans. I'm flying the H's with great success so far.

I think that if you wanna fly a 700E heli you better use 12S.
Sure 10S is possible as well but the current draw for the same amount of Watts will be at least 20% more.
Unless you have a load of 5S available I would go for 6S lipos.
Use a good sim iso flying the real stuff right away!

i noticed that new lipo batteries are coming online in the next month or so.

http://www.rcdude.com/servlet/the-13...X--dsh-/Detail

hyperion claims:

Hyperion G3 VX 22.2V 6S 5500mah 35C/65C Lipo

Hyperion Generation 3 Lithium Polymer Packs are proving truly revolutionary in both performance and value. Compared to an average of the batteries on market last year, they provide up to up to 4x more cycles under the same discharge conditions. And that makes them a bargain price-wise. But they also deliver the highest voltage and flattest discharge curves under load that we have ever seen, which makes them the best performer you can buy. And tests have shown that at the 70%-discharged point in flight, they are delivering as much as 40% more power than previous generation LiPo.
The fact that they can be safely charged at up to 5C rates - for charge times as low as 10 to 12 minutes - is just icing on a very tasty cake.

Thunder Power has similar new battery claims:

NEW: Thunder Power RC Pro Power 40C Lipo Batteries

Posted by Anthony Lawson on Tuesday, May 19th 2009

Rc Heli Resource brings you an exclusive first look at the new Thunder Power RC Pro Power 40C lipo batteries. You saw them here, first!
Most will say, hey didn’t Thunder Power RC just release the Pro Power 30C batteries? The answer is yes, however Thunder Power did not stop there, they are constantly working on the next technology. That didn’t get your attention, how about 6C charge rate and 6x the normal cycle life! Enter the Pro Power 40C lipos batteries that are due on the shelves in June.
It’s important to note, the Pro Power 40C batteries are not a replacement for the Pro Power 30C and Thunder Power will continue to manufacture and sell both lines. The Pro Power 40C fits the bill where you need the absolute highest performance from your lipo packs may that be a 250 heli all the way up to a 700 electric heli. The Pro Power 40C are going to be slightly larger, weigh a little more, and more expensive. Hence why they might not be perfect for every application, and the Pro Power 30C are available to fit those needs as well.

Here’s a quick side by side comparison of a Pro Power 30C and Pro Power 40C pack.

Pro Power 30C 2250mah 3S
  • Weight: 184g
  • Demensions: 25◊35x105mm
Pro Power 40C 2250mah 3S
  • Weight: 193g
  • Demensions: 27◊35x105mm
New Features and Benefits of the Pro Power 40C Lipos:
  • Industry-leading cycle life and longevity up to 6-times better than other brands offers long-lasting value and performance
  • Capable of continuous discharge rates up to 40C and burst discharge rates up to 80C, delivering higher voltage under typical and heavy loads than most other 25C to 35C continuous discharge rate capable batteries
  • Capable of being charged safely at rates up to 6C (when using approved charger/balancer combinations) for charge times of 12 minutes or less!
  • Cells are built using premium quality Japanese-made materials, including the latest in super-fine substrate (nano-like) materials and technology to offer vastly superior power, capacity and cycle life delivery never before seen
  • Cells are matched by internal resistance, capacity and voltage for maximum power and cycle life delivery with packs assembled by Thunder Power RC in Las Vegas, NV USA
  • Includes 1-year warranty and 50% off Damage Replacement Program coverage offering the best warranty and support available in the industry today!
Highlights of the new Pro Power 40C Batteries:
  • The 3S 11.1V 850mAh battery (TP850-3SJP40) is the most powerful battery available for powering Align T-REX 250 and other similar class helicopter models
  • The 3S 11.1V 2250mAh battery (TP2250-3SP40) is the most powerful battery ever made available for powering 400/450 class helicopters and park flyer EDF models, offering up to 35% more power and up to 6-times more cycle life than the 3S 11.1V 2200mah eXtreme V2 battery
  • The 6S 22.2V 2700mah battery (TP2650-6SP40) is the most powerful battery ever made available for powering 500-class 3D helicopters
  • The 3300mAh to 6500mAh series batteries deliver the same capacity but upwards of 35% more power and 6-times more cycle life at nearly the same weight as similar capacity eXtreme V2 series and most other 25C to 35C continuous discharge rate capable batteries
  • outrage announced new batteries a few months ago. i'd imagine they will have similar next generation LiPo qualities.
  • perhaps Zippy batteries is undergoing a similar change to their lineup? hopefully zippys will improve and still retain their low, low price at hobbyking/city.

You'll need quite a charger to charge a 6S 5500mah lipo with 5C....

I run mine with the 630 motor, 14 T pinion at 70% throttle flat curve and get about 8 minutes flight tme whith 12 S 5000 mAh and still have about 35% left on the batteries. -> for now I am only flying mild stuff so no 3D with that heli yet.
I thought about getting a 13 T pinion but could not find one for the 6mm shaft yet.
My setup gets me about 1950 - 2000 rpm.

Default Secondary Battery Tray!!!

Good to see a conversion kit with the extra battery tray included. Too bad I already invested all the time and effort to make my own tray for the helidirect kit... but hey, it was fun. I used 1/2" aluminum angle stock and 2mm carbon plate to make mine. It's pretty much done, just waiting for a 1/8" end mill I ordered for my mini-mill so I can cut the 4 velcro strap slots in the sides of the tray. Gave me a good excuse to use my mini mill (MicroMark 82573 MicroLux). I also have the MicroMark mini lathe which is great for turning out clutch bell liners and such.

I'll post a photo when the tray is done.

John
