08 CPO & CJ Raptor E700 V2 – Tail Boom and Airframe Completion

Please SUBSCRIBE, COMMENT, and LIKE this video if you found it helpful! Thanks! http://everythingcpo.com

This video marks the completion of the actual airframe part of the of assembly as we add the tail rotor system and tail boom to the frame. The only tough part of this section of the build was getting that tail rotor housing hole lined up with the tail boom hole. You’ll see what I mean when you watch…

Playing around with “inverted autos” with the Dromida Ominus quadcopter from Tower Hobbies. Well…I wasn’t really landing them…but I think they still qualify as autos.

06 CPO & CJ Raptor E700 V2 – Frame Assembly Part Two

This is part two of the frame assembly part of the build. It’s actually packed with so much more than the frame, so don’t let the title fool you. In this video, I grind new flats on my Scorpion motor shaft, I show one method for thread locking the motor shaft to the pinion support bearing, how to set the pinion location on the motor shaft, how to install the main shaft and main gear…

05 CPO & CJ Raptor E700 V2 – Frame Assembly Part One

I must have been editing this video in my sleep! Not my best work, but I am going to roll with it. When I was reviewing the final product…I cringed in a few places…but in the end, it doesn’t impact the build instruction and it honestly wasn’t worth re-editing. I have to get going on the next video! : )

This video covers part one of the frame assembly, using Bags C and D and from…



CPO’s Dromida Ominus Quadcopter Review

Hey everyone, this is my look at the Dromida Ominus “nearly impossible to break” quadcopter. You can pick this up at Tower Hobbies. My best piece of advice… get two. They are that much fun. You are going to want to fly with someone! 😉

This is a really cool quadcopter. It looks good. Flies good. And has that interesting design that allows it to survive prop impacts. I don’t know exactly how the prop stops…



Raptor E700 Test Flight

I’ll be honest. I wasn’t planning on uploading this to YouTube. It was a totally random moment that I put up on Facebook and Google Plus, and never really expected it to go much further than that. However, it’s got quite a bit of attention, and since we discussed it during my RC Hangar Time interview, people are wondering where to find it.

So here it is. Enjoy.

CPO Raptor E550 23 Sep 14

 

So this is a pretty uneventful video in terms of what you might normally see posted as RC Heli flight vids. I actually struggled with whether or not to even share it. There are a few things going on here.

1. This is pretty much where I am at from a skills perspective. You see I have a long ways to go. The good news is that every time…

Sorry for the rough video. This is my son CJ’s first time to try and capture video of a maiden flight for me. He learned how tough that is! I decided to post it anyway, since it does show how easy of a flyer this Tucano is – and you really can only have ONE maiden flight! LOL!
