PostSubject: ESMART production!!!   Thu Sep 10, 2009 11:38 am

Below is an Email I received this am from my friend RON, THIS IS GOOD NEWS!!!!!

Good news for E Sky, after a long conversation the E Smart and the G Smart will be built again, it will be better than ever and will have upgrades. The helicopters are flying now and need some fine tuning. I do believe many of the parts will still fit however many items have changed. I have order the 900 for you as it is built to order so the time is at least 20 day if not 30. That's the way it is but you will have the first one I receive. I have ordered parts for the belt CP V2 helicopters and inventory of helicopters as well. I have the tools they offer now as far as the screw drivers and the Allen drivers in stock.
Let your forum know that things are a little slow but will soon arrive and be better than ever as I have written a number it items that needed to be changed on the G Smart to make it the helicopter of choice.
Thank you as always for your support.
Cheer's to you and your mates,
Ron Greene President Lakeside Hobbies/ Pegasus USA

This is great news for all of us. I think we all owe a big "thanks" to Marc. I don't know how he was able to get the right information and I don't care but he had this nailed from day 1. I for one couldn't be happier about this. I hope ESKY advertises this heli this time around, they will sell a boatload of them. Time to pop a beer.

Thanks are in order, indeed.

You've done a fabulous job (as they often say in Hollywood Hyperbole). orange68

But a job well done is ... well, done!

And you did it. We did it. And now we need to buy them when they are ready. I'll buy at least one, but I'll skip the 900, I think. I wasn't campaigning for that one.

And maybe they need to hire Nuttsy for their ad campaign, sending him round the world to all the funflies and competitions.

Maybe get your buddy Justin Chi to build one and compete with it!

BTW, how's that build going? Still waiting on part 12.

And thanks again. Kudos.

skipping the ES500 is a good idea, I want one because I want to show everyone that the ES600 is better but it really doesn't make sense for anyone to actually buy one, not with all the other 500 clones already available.

I had actually finished part 12 but decided to wait until I get my ES500 before I finish any more vids.

Hey Nutts, Have you gotten any word when you will get it?? I actually am anxious to see it.. I'm an Esky fan, so even there other 500's and I have 2 I'm still anxious to get one of my own.. I think it will be a good flyer!! And with the lack of "E" parts we need our ESKY fix somehow!!LOL

no word yet, but what I'm more interested then getting it is how much the kit will actually sell for, I can't seem to get anyone to give me an answer about that one, any chance Ron knows what the retail price is?

I'm pretty sure the kit is gonna go for 179.00.. I heard that Xheli will get theirs in about a month because of shipping the contianer by boat... Ron gets his by DHL and thinks he will have his sooner.
He only orders small amounts compared to the others so somethins he gets his a bit faster cause of that..

I love ya ESky but WTF are you guys thinking think004

Let me see, I could get an EXI 500 with a metal head and carbon fiber frame that since it is a T-Rex clone and I could get parts for it EVERYWHERE orrr I could spend $40 more on the ES500 and get a metal frame with a full PLASTIC head and almost no where to buy parts from. ahh such a tough decision Crazysmile

PostSubject: Yup!!   Wed Sep 16, 2009 3:39 pm

You know I agree with that 100%.. I think it will make a good 2nd heli.. you know, when you crash it you can stand to wait a month for the repair parts.. This is not gonna be a heli for everyone by any means.. But like I said if you are an ESky Pilot I think it is a must have....

Hey, Nuttsy;

You mean you finished part 12 and didn't post it?

Or did you post it, and if so, where?

Thanks,

Mick

well its half finished, I shoot the video but never edited it, waiting on some things before I finish. I'm actually gonna be re-making alot of my vids soon.

the biggest thing I didn't like about the Exceed Tx was I couldn't add expo, but I personally wouldn't use it on something like the ES600, only a nice Comp Tx (DX6i, DX7, etc)

PostSubject: tx vs. gyro ...   Fri Sep 18, 2009 3:04 am

FD ...

Some gyros have settings for the common tx's, like JR and Futaba. The tx I got was recommended as a low cost alternative by Nuttsy, so I thought I'd try it before getting the DX7, for now.

Later I can still use this one for my G2, which I wanted to upgrade to 2.4 ghz anyway.

But according to Finless Bob from Helifreak, certain gyros won't go into HH mode without knowing what Tx they are interpreting, and you select them from a menu.

Don't know if the Exceed will be recognized by one of the three settings for the 6100T.

No matter. I'll just have to splurge and get the Spektrum sooner rather than later.

take care ...

PostSubject: ... moments ago   Sat Sep 19, 2009 12:20 am

... I just took the nearly $200 plunge and bought the DX6i.

Found it on ebay with the A6200 and charger and batt pack for $169 plus $12.99 shipping. Tired of shopping for a used one, and the DX7 just doesn't offer anything to me that I'll need until I get a nitro. That'll be a long while, since I prefer electrics.

So the Exceed RC Tx will go for my Exceed Heli, and that makes sense. AND, I don't want to be the man crying like a baby when he tries to fly his Smarty and he ends up a Dummy.

If Nuttsy says don't do it, I'm just going to defer to his wisdom on that count.

I want to state here in public that Suriano has been a good resource for me in my helicopter endeavors via PM.

Maybe we should've posted them here for other's sake.

Thanks, Suriano,

Mick

Mick, I think you were smart to buy a new DX6i.
There was a recall last year where the pots on the transmitter were bad. I bought one of those. It was a royal PITA to get it fixed. I actually gave it away later and got a DX7.

It could have been possible, if you bought a used one, to get one of those bad ones.

In some ways, I like the way the DX6i sets up better than the DX7.

Once you get your ES600 all setup, you'll probably want to move all of your other models over to the Spektrum!
That's what I did!

PostSubject: Rx for Tx ...   Sun Sep 20, 2009 4:29 am

Kent;

I've been shopping for a Tx for several months now, and I've come across a lot of disclaimers about the DX6i and the recall. Everyone assures buyers that the one they are selling isn't subject to it, or has been sent in and fixed. I'm sure my new one will be fine, as you say.

Funny you should mention the way it sets up, because I've watched some "How to .." videos for both the 6i and the 7, and I got the same impression. Plus, I have no plans to start using Nitros any time soon, nor flying planes, so the 6i is just enough (and nothing more than I need).

I think my other models won't need it! The Raptor G2 PE is a really cute little heli in the 400 class. I've also upgraded the battery to 2200 mah, up from the paltry 1200 mah that came with it, AND double upgraded the motor to the brushless Alpha 400. The only gripe I have with it so far is that it shudders spooling up. I think due to the plastic frame: it's just a little bit too flexible.

Overall, I'm impressed with the quality/price of the Exceed RC brand. I understand that the G2 is the exact same thing as a Walkera 36#, which by all accounts, isn't a well-loved brand. Maybe they are just compatible, and the Exceed RC brand is better, I don't know.

But I like the G2, and I like the Exceed 2.4 ghz Tx and Rx. It's also 1/4th the price of a DX6i. I already have the Exceed Tx, and just to buy an Rx to use it with my DX6i, it would cost more than the Exceed RC Tx and Rx.

Think I'll just set up the G2 for the Exceed Tx, and call it good.

But there are a total of 10 models I can store on the Spektrum.

Wonder what they'll be?

Nuttsy, I hate to admit it, but the pix of the Esky ES500 look really good. I don't know why I fall for those Esky helis, but I'd rather have it than the EXI, even if it does cost a little more. I may just have to pick one up after all.

Y'all take care now;

Mick
PS Just finished rebuilding the G2. Talk about Murphy's law! It may fly tomorrow, and that's a pleasant thought.

It's really funny how you get into this hobby and then you realize, one by one, all the things other fliers already know. Fx, Carbon Fiber is good! Don't skrimp on gyros or transmitters! Buy helis with readily available parts! Be careful using wood blades! Don't fly your helicopter into a chain link fence!


And so on ... Crazysmile

yep, nothing better then being able to take a few helis or planes to the field and only need to bring 1 Tx orange68

I would recommend the EXI 500 over the ES500 anyday, not that the ES500 is a bad heli just that the EXI 500 is a much better value.
