Synergy E5 - Information Thread

There is one thing you can count on. Ralph will make it right!  I am so glad Kevin introduced me to FBL Rotors earlier this year.  Ralph has done so much to help promote Synergy. Having Ralph as a resource has reinforced the good feelings I have for the products.
Just received the ship notification on his swashplate leveler. Can't wait to get my hands on some battery trays! Keep those innovative items coming Ralph!


Cheers
Alan

Norbert,

 By all means Brother I didn't take your email offensively nor try to prove a point, call it a Blanket Statement. It was just to inform others of the crazy schedule Ralph has, No need to feel like you need to apologize, because I can assure you I'm not looking for one. ;) All is good, and After replying to this post earlier, I called Ralph and informed him of the situation, And I'm certain all is good to go. So please don't feel like I was coming down on you because that was the last thing I intended.. I can't wait for you to get your things, Especially your e5.. what a machine. Like I said before, if you have any issues trying to get in-touch with Ralph, Email me please and I will assist you.. ;D


Best,

Kevin

Great !!  I sent a MP at Ralph.
but the main important thing here is E5....I was really impressed by matt's video, seems to be really powerfull and as I have lots of 2*6s 5000 TP for my 700, having a E5 should be a good idea  ;) ;)
I've seen that Matt use a CC120, do you know if 120A is really required or a scorpion 90A could be sufficient.. I thing that it's important to keep this heli as light as possible to avoid high disk loading, isn't it?

Norbert,

 In the beginning Matt had a CC100 on it. Now he has a CC120. I am running my set up with a CC120 as well as a lot of the other team guys( when we get them), With this you have flexibility to try many variations. Believe me, If he is running it, It will be fine, Matt is VERY Sensitive when it comes to weight and disk loading. Quiet honestly I venture to say a lot of us have learned quite a bit from him and the importance of "Weight/Disk Loading/CG's. It plays a big part in how the Heli flies as well as how it holds up.. You will be fine with it.  Good Luck!!!! Keep us posted!! ;)

I'll let the man himself speak for certain but I believe the last thing I read was there is a tentative release time of October as long as all goes to plan.

What is everyone running on these helis? Motor, ESC, Servos, fbl system? I def plan on VBAR but the rest I am clueless .. This will be my first decent size electric. Got to give Ralph a call soon for a expected arrival date.

Rick

I have the electronics for mine already waiting the air frame :)

My setup will be:
Scorpion HKIII 4025-1100kv
Castle Ice2 80HV
Savox SC-1267MG HV Cyclics
Savox SB-2272MG HV Tail
2S Lipo RX pack
Mini V-Bar Blue 5.3 Pro
Rail 556 Mains
Rail 96 Tails (unless Matt releases something smaller for the E5)
Pulse Ultra 6S 45C packs, size to be determined. I want to chat with Matt at IRCHA about how he setup his for 6S. Going 6S on this bird.

Im considering a similar setup as this.

My only concern is whether to go with Ice2 80HV on 6s or the 120HV?

Im leaning towards the 120HV to be safe.

Waht do you guys think.

Going with the 120 will ensure you have some head room for any spikes in amperage draw. I'm also going with the 120.

On a 6a machine the amp load will be higher than at 12s machine for sure. I don't fly hard 3d so I rarely pull 80amps consistently on my x5 or e7 for that matter.

If you are running 6s and are banging the sticks. I would probably agree the 120 is much safer.

Just remember. Don't need a HV esc for 6s. Can easily get away with a cc ice 100. I am only using the 80hv as I already have one laying around.

+1 for 120.
On my L500 I can shut down Jive 80Hv on command with Pyro 600-11 6S.
HJ120 no problem.

Not sure if it has been posted and I missed it or not... Does the E5 use the same 116t main gear and pinions as the E6/7's.

I think that it's a 119 main gear.

I'm still hesitating between budget setup or optimized one.

Budget could be :
DHK 600 Brusless Motor 1050KV or 600MX 1220KV (Depending if counterbearing is mandatory in 6S)
Himodel 120HV ESC
Bec CC Pro
MKS DS1210 /DS1009 /DS610(5) x 3
Align DS655
Beastx
Rail mains and Tails

Optimized could be :
Scorpion HKIII 4025-1100kv
Castle Ice2 120HV or YGE 120LV
Eneloop 800mAh backup
MKS DS670 x 3
MKS BLS980
BeastX
Rail mains and tails

Both with Gens Ace

Matt plz, when ???
