It is Official
« on: December 14, 2017, 12:00:59 PM »
I am very excited to say that I now own a 766.  Funds have been transferred and I now eagerly await the arrival of my new to me Heli.  It is orange with a tail boom cover.  It also comes with motor and speed control.  I need to buy a set of servos for it.  I have a NEO and Battery ID and UI that I can put on it.  I will be putting Xpert servos on it.  I also need to decide which brand of battery to go with for this machine. 

I have been debating the purchase since the machine was introduced.  I am very happy one is on its way.

Gratz Roger!  It's a great flying model, that's very versatile.

I liked it so well, I got a second one....but not stretching it....as I no longer have a 700....766 and 806.  8)

Congrats Roger! It's Christmas and I needed a present so mine will be here on Friday. I got a Carey Shurley gas conversion coming for mine, though, with a VX310.

Nice Chris.  I would be interested in how the conversion goes together.

I'll post some photos of the build, Rog. Matt has a gasser, and a few other folks have them. But I guess I haven't seen any real build threads on a 766 yet. Despite the cost of the conversion kit, I think it will come in cheaper than an electric build with batteries factored in. And the performance is almost nitro level with the Toxic VX320TT under the hood. I got the Toxic VX310 Sports engine for mine because I plan on using it for UAV and didn't really want the "hot" port timing of the TT engines.

From all reports, and talking with Carey and Matt directly about what I wanted, the gasser conversion is pretty straight forward.

My new to me 766 has arrived.  I am checking it out now and putting it back together as I go.  I have the head assembly mounted and secured.  This machine is huge.  I thought my N7 was big......the 766 is BBBBIIIIIGGGGGGG!

I think I am going to like this machine a lot.
