CPO Follow-Up : 3-Point Leveling Table, and how I use it today

CPO Follow-Up : 3-Point Leveling Table, and how I use it today

This is a follow-up video to an earlier two part build series I did last year on a DIY Leveling Table I designed and built. For more about the table specifically, you can check out these original videos:

CPO’s DIY 3-Point Leveling Platform : Part One

CPO’s DIY 3-Point Leveling Platform : Part Two

Anyway…it turns out to be a really helpful platform for general heli work. I can easily rotate the heli around…

CPO Heli Hangout #21 : AccuRC R/C Simulator? : )

CPO Heli Hangout #21 : AccuRC R/C Simulator? : )

Hanging out…talking helis. A lot of great discussion as usual. We were also fortunate enough to have had an opportunity to pick the brains of a couple of the guys behind the upcoming  AccuRC Simulator  (Pronounced “accuracy”) .  That was a total surprise.  Thanks to Ade for somehow convincing Managing Director Ashley Davis to pop in so we could overcome him with requests to demo AccuRC and Opti Power batteries!  I won’t try and recreate his…

Hanging out…talking helis.  Another great hangout! Scott and Christian joined us again, so apparently we didn’t scare them off! More discussion on first helis…especially since Scott decided to press the BUY button on a 500 while were were live! : )  We talked about the stretched 450s a bit (480) and Lee, who I was happy to see was able to join us from the beaches of Spain at 3AM, was showing us his Warp…

TT Raptor E550FBL : Installing the Tail Boom Assembly and Adjusting Belt Tension

TT Raptor E550FBL : Installing the Tail Boom Assembly and Adjusting Belt Tension

This video begins the build process for my new Thunder Tiger E550 FBL helicopter. The focus in this video is the tail assembly, from boom to tail blades. I also include a section on how to easily check belt tension using a digital caliper.

There are several points of the build that aren’t very clear in the manual, so I hope this video is helpful for folks who are needing to build this heli. Even though…



Thunder Tiger Raptor E550 FBL Battery Fitment

Thunder Tiger Raptor E550 FBL Battery Fitment

If you have seen my previous post about battery fitment in the new 2014 Raptor E550FBL, then you know that one of my outstanding questions was with regard to how the larger 5000mah batteries will fit into the frame. Now that I have my E550 and also my batteries, I know. Of course, what I don’t yet know is how the heli cg ends up with this battery in place. I won’t know that until…



Unboxing the 2014 Thunder Tiger Raptor E550 FBL ARF Heli

Unboxing the 2014 Thunder Tiger Raptor E550 FBL ARF Heli

I’m excited to share the unboxing of my new Thunder Tiger Raptor E550 FBL ARF (Almost Ready to Fly) rc helicopter. I’ve been wanting to move to a 550 sized heli for a while, and this one came at a price that I couldn’t pass up. The timing was perfect!

Let me take you through the contents of the box, and as you can see, this heli is nearly built. It just requires a little bit…



CPO Raptor E550FBL

I got my Raptor E550 FBL Today, and it came with a broken heart!

I was soooo excited when the UPS man showed up with a big box from Tower Hobbies. I have to get off to work, and was only home because of a medical appt this morning. But once it showed up, I couldn’t resist taking a peak. Don’t worry…the full unboxing video will be posted soon. I just can’t do it right now.

Thunder Tiger Raptor E550FBL Maximum Battery Size?

You might have noticed that I have ordered the new Thunder Tiger E550FBL.  I need to order some batteries  for it, since it calls for 6S 5000mah, and I don’t have any of those. I was checking out my usual battery of choice, Turnigy Blue or Nano-Techs. I like them because they are inexpensive, and other than one that came to me with a dead cell, they have…

RC Heli Head Speed Calculation and Measurement

In this video, I tackle the topic of head speed; calculating and measuring it to be exact.

First, I wanted to understand the formula that is used to identify an estimated head speed. Online head speed
