I'm glad Align opted for metal blade grips on the first model. I wish they had done that for the 600E and 600N Sport and Pro kits (yes, I know the Super Pro kit includes them).

Probably for putting a longer boom on the 600!

ENJOYING THE BUILD BOB!!! (sorry bout the shouting) Keep up the good work Bob. I really like watching the comparison video shoot with the Aurora. I kind of like the black head parts. Looks stealthy.

Thanks Bob, I understand. I myself would probably not even touch the Trex 700 till the Aurora is done, let alone mess with a 600

That's cruel! If he's resigned to working on the T-Rex 700 build, that means he's not flying. When was the last time you wished for rain so that you couldn't fly?

I've never seen JJ (it's usually JK), but I knew you were kidding. So was I, just a lot more subtly. Sometimes, my snide remarks come out wrong.

I wish for rain every day I have off of work, it's a cheaper hobby that way!

Of course you need to locktite the cage. And screw that screws into metal you need to locktite especially in the head. I did not have to size the links at all.
