Compass Model Chronos 700 Flybarless Helicopter Kit w/CF Blades
This is the Compass Chronos 700 Flybarless Helicopter Kit. This 700 sized helicopter is the evolution of 7HV Ultimate and also has some features that are very unique.
Most notably, the Chronos uses the CRS* rotor head which features a completely updated design over previous systems. The hardness of the head damping is infinitely adjustable. This allows the Chronos to get optimized to all the different flybarless system and on each flying style.
In addition to the hardness adjustment, the CRS rotor head eliminates a big part of angular errors by using an updated geometry. Tracking errors at high cyclic deflections are reduced and the helicopter gains precision. Exactly parallel linkages between the swash plate and blade holder and angled linkages between the servos and the swash plate are to thank.
The Chronos also uses the same indestructible main gear made from Delrin. With 127 teeth, the gear is CNC machined in module 1 pitch. This ensures quiet operation and an effective load transfer.
The Chronos frame is very easy to maintain. It features bushings and mounting points for the cables and is designed in two parts. This makes repairs very cost effective in the unfortunate event of a crash, as well as make repairs easy to fix. The automatic belt tensioner, and the perfect working tail rotor of the 7HV Ultimate is used in the Chronos as well. A hollow-drilled 14mm main rotor shaft and a 10mm spindle make the Chronos incredibly stiff and again giving a noticeable gain in precision. The CF landing gear saves weight and offers a great optics. Of course, the plastic struts can still be used.
Whether your style is hardcore 3D or soft low head speed cruising, the Chronos is perfectly adapted for all circumstances and pilots.
