I received ESC this morning. Looks pretty good. Order from hobbyking should arrive in about a week :chickendance: (I also love this smiley)

which ESC did you order again? I had noticed on some ESC's at Hobbycity didn't have a "Super Soft Start" option, which is very important on a big heli.

I ordered mystery pentium 80A ESC from ebay. It has soft start though. But it doesn't say that it has super soft start. I guess I should be very careful when starting up heli :prop:

one thing I do is to bump the throttle just enough to get the blades spinning then slowly start to spin it up flyaway

I actually start the head turning with my hand on the E-Smart and that works real good. Don't have to do that with the Belt.

I ordered castle creations BEC.
I like question in the FAQ:

25. Is my CC BEC edible?

Please refrain from tasting the yummy goodness of the CC BEC. Castle Creations is not responsible for any cases of upset stomach, indigestion, or other GI malfunctions as a result of CC BEC consumption. Eating a CC BEC is known to cause cancer in the state of California. :crylaugh:

I won an auction at ebay. And I won futaba 7C tx! excited
Now I need to buy a receiver. So I have almost bought everything for my e-smart. But now I shouldn't go to school and find a damn job! laughing013
Edit: After calculation I found out that I don't have money for rx right now sad122 I will need to borrow from someone orange75

On Monday it will be 3 weeks after shipment from hobbyking. Something is wrong. I usually get shipments from Hong Kong in about 2 weeks. I guess I will need to pay custom taxes. Great.... sad122

I dont want to rub it in,but you sound like many many other people that I read about.
I got all my stuff in three days from them because I used the express shipping. Its
got us all waiting. We want to see your esmart up and fly'n too.

I hope you are not one of those people I heard about that had to wait 6 weeks or better
when they ordered from hobby king......

Yeah, I know that you recommended EMS shipping. But simply I didn't have money for it. Normal shipping costs ~40$ and EMS ~90$. Pretty big difference orange44 And it is not hobbyking fault for long shipping. I think the parcel is in customs. TX should come on Thursday. But now I have less than 10lt (4$). So I don't have money for rx and customs taxes. But I will borrow from my sister orange73

Wow! 90$ for EMS....What the heck did you buy a boat anchor.....just kidding

I bought 2 6s 5000 batterys it only cost me $32 for EMS total. I wonder if the EMS
will bypass customs though.....

Those batterys I ordered were very heavy, so I dont understand why they wanted $90. If
that was the case I understand why you didnt want to do it...

you didn't have to pay anything extra when I sent you that ES600 kit did you? if not next time you need to order something, if you think it'd be quicker and cheaper to get it from the US I can send it to you, just let me know.

PostSubject: Re: Building e-smart   Tue Sep 08, 2009 5:47 pm

Nah, I didn't pay anything when I received ES600. You marked it as a gift and wrote 50$ value. But if you would wrote ~60$ value I think I would have to pay customs taxes. :grinn:
Thanks for the offer about shipping. Many shops in USA sends orders to Lithuania. But shipping times from Hong Kong and USA are almost the same, but prices are better in Hong Kong, so I choose it. And I heard that USA shops don't write lower value on the parcels so you have to pay taxes orange83 But I think I will be ordering e-smart parts from USA. orange73 There are some of them in UK, but many are sold out.
Thanks again for the offer! orange6

Here they are:










And some photos of belt cp:
How I mounted low voltage beeper:


And my first 'autorotation' Well practically it wasn't autorotation. Pinion gear came loose pretty high and I had to land heli without power. So my first semi 'autorotation' and inverted flight was not because I wanted do to it :prop: Only one skid broke:

Oh, I got fiber glass canopy from Fatdaddy which is VERY nice. I will get some photos tomorrow orange49 I hope that tomorrow I will set up everything and on Saturday beast will fly (but all week it is raining) bouncy Few hours ago I tested all electronics. Everything works OK, except that rudder servo creeps sometimes on DS (digital) mode on gyro. Yes, it is digital servo

IT FLIES!!!! orange71 orange71 orange71
My first try was on Sunday in rain. Only hovered for few minutes. Esmart was wet orange72
Second try was today. It flies really well. Just need to add some expo on tx, but even without expo it has soft controls. I LOVE THIS HELI orange49 I like that I can fly my belt cp without any nerves. It feels like a toy after esmart orange72
There are some videos and photos, but I am going to upload them later. Now I am going to sleep orange60
