Nope, it's not on the Synergy Store website yet.  I'll check back on Wednesday.  It is good to see the category here on the forum.  I wonder how many will be in the first run of kits.  I hope it is enough so that everybody that wants one is a happy camper :)

Maybe the goal is IRCHA - 2 weeks.

Yep, still EAGERLY awaiting the pre-order.   :) :). I kinda want to be first in line.  I hope that there is the same excitement and antipation with everybody that I am feeling.  I was very impressed with the heli, not only in how it looks but how well It flew.  I am well aware that the pre-order won't hit the web site until Matt is 100% satisfied that it is ready for sale.

Very happy to see a confirmed price for the kit.
Now preorders are opening with US retailers which has everyone hoping/expecting it'll be available soon.
Meanwhile any chance of the manual coming online?
Just a little something to keep us going until kit release date.

The manual is in the final stages of proofing and prep. We do generally release the manual a little bit ahead of the model but not quite yet. Keep an ear out it won't be too much longer. Matt revealed at the IRCHA demo that the kits are in production we are down to the final steps while we are waiting for the first batch to be prepared and shipped.

Kits in production = music to my ears. 

Soon I will be doing the happy dance.  I still need servos. 
I have a couple of people checking with their contacts at Xpert
To verify the MI-3301HV M2 will fit.  I have my fingers crossed.
Servo Plan B is to use a set of BK servos.

The MI-3301HV M2 is not a direct fit for the 516, Rob said that you need ~42.5mm of hole spacing and the Xpert Mini servos are a bit too small, they will need some sort of adapter.
Shannon at OnlyFineHelis told me that he is working on one and it will make it available very soon after the 516 is released.
Title: Re: Nope, not yet!
Post by: Roger on August 10, 2017, 04:24:06 PM

Thanks codepox.  👍🏻👍🏻 I am aware of the slight differential.  I have a set of BK servos I can use to get it flying while I work on an adapter. 

I am so looking forward to this build.  I have a kit on reserve.

Title: Re: Nope, not yet!
Post by: Wolf51 on August 22, 2017, 07:08:10 PM
Fair enough reason
I have a scorp 4035-560 in my E5s and its great. Just runs warm as scorpions seem to do.
Xnova 4530-500 in the 766 is excellent too. For the 516 I  just decided to go for the extra power from the outset so I'm not wondering what it'd be like in 6mths time.

Mine arrived yesterday and I had a look in the box last night.

Been anticipating this since the facebook reveal and was not disappointed.
Great design and the quality that Matt delivers ever time. Weight saving everywhere you look at the parts, I hear you Rob Cherry.

Really impressed and excited about getting into the build.
