Compass Chronos 700 and Blades CHR-A-700
The Chronos is a helicopter in the 700 size. It is the evolution of 7HV Ultimate and also has some features that are very unique.
The CRS* rotor head is a completely new design. 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 new CRS rotor head eliminates a big part of angular errors with a new 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 responsible for this.
The Chronos is using the same in flight indestructible maingear made from DELRIN. With 127 teeth, it is executed in module 1 and cnc-milled. It ensures a quiet running and an effective load transfer.
The frame is easy to maintain, has bushings and mounting points for the cable and is designed in two parts. This makes it very cost effective for a possible crash and 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 geat optics. Of course, the plastic struts can still be used.
The Chronos is perfectly adapted for all circumstances. Whether hardcore 3D or soft low head speed cruising.

To ground the helicopter, you can use a piece of fine sandpaper to remove a little bit of the black anodizing between the two tail boom clamps in the frame with care. Do not modify the tailboom at the rear tail boom clamp or even behind that! Use a piece of silicon wire with a diameter of at least 1mm˛ and skin one end. Attach the open end to the tail boom with one or two zip ties. Lay the wire to the motor mount, skin the other end and attach the wire to one bolt of the motor mount by jamming the open end under the bolt.
