Default Trex 600E Build Videos will be here:

The Trewx 600 Build videos will be listed here.

NEW 01/20/2007 Shaft Drive Kit Overview.
This is not a video showing complete assembly but is an over of the system. Installation should be the same as belt drive and should be EASY following my build videos below as it is like the belt drive and tail assemblies
Trex600 Shaft Drive Overview (55 Megs)


The regular build vids are below



Check out the announcement video here:
Trex 600 announcement video

First up:

Kit Contents Overview
What's in the box!! (18 Megs)

VIDEO -> Steps 1 and 2 - Blade grips and head (18 Megs)

NOTE! The flybar supplied is now 440mm instead of 400mm as used in my video. Please be aware of this for the measurements I give for paddle distance!
VIDEO -> Step 3 - Seesaw and flybar (50 Megs)

VIDEO -> Steps 4, 5 & 6 - Head, washout, and swash plate (20 Megs)

VIDEO -> Steps 7 & 8 - Main gear and frames (25 Megs)

VIDEO -> Step 9 - Tail Drive Assembly (10 Megs)

VIDEO -> Steps 10 & 11 - Trays, Motor mount, and Control arms (20 Megs)

VIDEO -> Steps 12 - Landing Gear (9 Megs)

OK folks. At this point for ease of video purposes I am skipping steps 13 through 16 (tail and tail rotor) and going to 17 servo install and head set up. I will return to these steps near the end.

VIDEO -> Servo Install and linkage setup (44 Megs)

VIDEO -> Head and link setup (30 Megs)

VIDEO -> Installing the motor and setting the pinion (15 Megs)

VIDEO -> Installing the electronics (38 Megs)

OK I will now be going back to page 13 and doing the tail of the heli and this will include setting up the servo.

VIDEO -> Tail boom, tail case, and tail shaft (30 Megs)

VIDEO -> Tail pitch slider and tail hub (22 Megs)

VIDEO -> Boom supports and fins (22 Megs)

VIDEO -> Tail servo and gyro setup (35 Megs)

OK basically that is it! I hope you all enjoy the build vids and please feel free to give feedback!
The below vid is just some final comments nothing big. I moved the ESC to the other side of the heli due to the antenna routing as I did this build without the skids on and after placing the skids I realized it was not good to have the ESC close to the antenna.

VIDEO -> Final comments (6 Megs)

VIDEO -> How to mount the flight power 4900 to the Trex600 (19 Megs)

Well I hope you all enjoyed this as much as I did doing the vids!

Enjoy,
Bob

Frank... seeing how you have built in the past I am sure it is sloppy.... You want to get in the air fast and dont care about a QUALITY build.... Seen your work before...

If you lockout this weekend I will be sure to have my camera!

I bet I will not approve of your wiring job, etc but we shall see...

One day when you grow out of puberty you will appreciate spending time building a GOOD heli...

Of course I am picking on you ya know

Bob

Hey Bob,

Don't know what you did different, but the image quality is greatly improved. Keep up the great work. I look forward to seeing your builds.

Yes the build videos WILL be here. I am sorry that I could not get started TODAY as I said but for sure the 600 build vids will start tomorrow! Realize I have a day job like many and I was working on vids before th 600 came in.

Sorry all for the delay but do not worry... They will start showing up SOON!

Bob
