The Forza 700 is a smooth machine that is
capable of flying hard 3-D maneuvers.
and agile 3-D
It is hard to believe that a year has passed since I built the JR Forza 450. With plenty of love, crashes, and
tender care, my little Forza has been a
true joy to fly.
I have been thrilled with the
performance of this new generation of
JR helicopters, and I was excited when I
viewed the first photos of the JR Forza
700. After seeing the final product, I
knew this would be on my summer
build list, and as luck would have it, I am
writing this article during the last few
days of the season.
Similar to all JR helicopters, the Forza
700 is designed and manufactured with
the highest-quality standards. What
makes the Forza 700 different from
other large JR helicopters is its design
Following in the footsteps of the Forza
450, the Forza 700 is a lightweight, fast,
and modular aircraft at a competitive
price. This has been done without
compromising JR’s standards.
Begin the build with the carbon
components. It is important to note
that you should sand all of the edges.
This should be done to all carbon
components before you begin each
build. I recommend wet sanding to
minimize carbon dust.
Trays and Crossmember
The first item needed for the build is
the ESC tray. Sand the inside edges of
the Velcro slots because rough carbon
can cut through the Velcro. Also, note
the direction of the mounting screws.
One of the crossmembers is for
the front of the helicopter, so it has a
different shape than the one for the back
part of the tray. The ESC tray is large
and easily holds my new KONTRONIK
JIVE Pro 120. It is also large enough to
easily hold the KONTRONIK KOSMIK
ESC, as shown in the assembly photos.
The middle crossmember is a
simple subassembly. Slide middle
crossmember A under the edge of
middle crossmember B before you begin
inserting your screws. Place all of the
screws in their places and then tighten
them in an alternating pattern. This
