Default HK 600 clone

Hello All

I have a few questions!

This is what I have.

HK 600 clone

Replace the main & auto rotation gear also tail drive gear and fly-bar cage.

I am running a 2<sup>nd</sup> battery pack with a BEC for the servos

I am going to test it out with a 6s 3300 ma (hover only)

Motor is Raiden T20A 1700 KV from Xheli

11 tooth pinion (not sure on the head speed yet)

ESC Hobby Wing 100 amp platinum pro

Servos (3) Hitec HS-422 (4.8 / 6 volt)

Tail servo now is a EXI D122F (6 volt)

Gyro Detrum GY48V Hobby Parts

BEC Turnigy 5-7.5A (running 6 volt) all servos

Good Bad No Comment

Also only going to sport fly!

Feed back WELCOME
Thanks RCREDHOTS

I found the runout on the stock HK gear to be more than I liked. Rather than replacing it I took it apart and rotated the bearing plate until it flattened out.

Hi every one just wanted to put my say in for the HK600 gt. I just finished mine. I do have to say that I am pretty impressed with most of the quality of the heli. But there is a few things that do need to be fixed or changed out before any one should put the heli in the air. If any one has any questions i would be more than happy to give advice or to give my input on what i had to change on my 600gt.
HERE IS MY SETUP THIS IS A 12S SETUP

HK 600 GT
SCORPION 4025-630KV
CASTLE CREATION ICE 80HV
CASTLE CREATION PRO BEC
ALIGN DS610 CYCLIC
FUTABA S9254 TAIL WITH GY520
ALIGN PRO 3D CARBON BLADES
KBDD TAIL BLADES 92MM
KBDD DAMPERS
KDE MOTOR MOUNT
2X TURNIGY 6S 3000MAH 40C PACKS

There is more Mods to list that i have done please feel free to ask. I have only test hovered this heli and i am still trimming and tuning. more info and updates to follow

I put my HK 600 in the air a week or so back it was flying like a dream!

I did a few loops, almost perfect did a few flips almost perfect!

Then my 5 minute timer went off so I was landing and then the lipo alarm went off Oh well I wasn't high enough for a auto landing or did I have enough experience!

Oh yes nice hard drop, servo, landing gear, motor shaft, rod end. (didn't take it out of throttle hold).

All took place in about 3 seconds!

But it was flying like a dream!

Bottom line in all the excitement grabbed the wrong batter pack! 3300 ma 30c.

Didn't know about the battery pack until I took it in the house and seen the 5000 pack on the table!

And that was the answer why the lipo alarm was going off after only 5 minutes.

And yes I know the difference from one to the other. (do for sure now)

Just my 2 cents for the day.

i flew my hk600 today went really good lots of power with the 12s setup but i was having trouble with the one way baring locking up. funny thing is it is a main gear set that is new from Align. took it apart and couldn't see any thing that looks broke. Not to sure why it did that. Any thoughts let me know...
