As I prepare for today’s maiden flight, I wanted to catch you up on a few things with regard to the build. I did end up making some changes to the tail setup from the last video, and I explain why. I’m still not totally happy with it, but I think it will have to be resolved in either upgrades or mods. I think I am simply dealing with a design limitation. I’d be excited to get feedback on this topic from those with experience in building this particular airframe (Align or Tarot or other clone).
I then go into various topics, such as taking a look at my training gear installation, motor sticker removal, battery mounting (velcro/hook and loop/heavy duty fastener), battery break-in, tracking heli and battery activity with my RC Log Android App, checking flight controls before flight, and a reminder to keep the transmitter charged up. Feel free to add your tips to the comments!
There is a lot of “random” stuff to keep track of, so I am trying to keep you informed as I go. I realize there are some missing build videos in here, and I will catch you up. The editing process with regard to the software-based videos (using the Robird setup application) take much more time to edit that videos like this (I have to deal with intermingling two different video sources as well as keeping the audio track in sync). So, I am skipping a little editing time and jumping into the maiden so I can get that done today…then I’ll go back and edit some of the early work with setting the head speed and finishing the rest of the setup.
Now that I have my new Tarot 450 Pro V2 Kit, it’s time to get started on the build. Join me as I approach this build from a completely novice perspective. I’ll be learning as I go, but hopefully someone can learn something from this…or at least get the courage to do it on your own.
Thanks for watching!
