Casey and Eblezien,

They will only get better and more intense. It is a wild feeling knowing that you will be a helicopter owner. No more runways. Congratulations to you both!

Did you opt for the factory assist build? I highly recommend it.

Oh 100% factory assist, I could probably put the kit together myself...maybe... but you can’t put a price on the peace of mind you get having the awesome factory guys right there backing you up and making sure you aren’t putting together an expensive accident haha

I'm learning how to use this fourm !

I'm in this group of 'I JUST MADE MY DEPOSIT AND AM EXCITED TO GET GOING !'

My build number in 1335, XET, and might be, last I heard, painted by now. I've had a few hours of duel instructions, can hover under some conditions, not sure what's FAA legal/not legal, having fun !
FLY GUY, what is the size of your trailer ? It appears you are not removing one of the rotor blades ?

LET GET GOING !!

Will,

My trailer is a 20' V-nose w/a dove tail and an interior height of 8'. I do no remove the main rotor blades. In my build log I have pictures of my trailer. If you look you will see that both blades are supported (you need to go to the picture and soon in).
There are a lot of photos in most of the build logs that will answer many of your questions.

I guess I am old fashion but when I joined the forum I read almost every post to get familiar with all aspect of this helicopter. Be excited but don't be in a rush! Learn and savor what you learn. The build is fun and you are about to have a lot of fun!

Michael
