So the Jesse Odyssey's are installed, took about 90 minutes. Thanks to this thread, reviewing everyones input, all I had to do is to look at pictures and it went together. Looking at pictures, well that is what I do best! I'm past denial.
The provided instructions are a little confusing, but as ALONGAT states, and I paraphrase- Take your time, drink later!
Jesse Odyssey II's are exactly what I was expecting, no dents, scratches and even 4 button-head cap screws w/ fiberloc nuts left over. And surprisingly light at 15lbs? Isn't that correct 15 lbs?
CMurgel- my assembly looks identical to your pics, especially the top
luggage rack crossbar. The mismatch is identical to mine.
Installed some 3M vinyl tape #08663101 where the lock handles impact the case, quiets that right down to a soft thud. This tape is used on eurocopter b2's b3's to quiet the sliding action of each aft fuselage door. Great stuff, I used it where the crash-bars clamp around the frame as well.
Thanks to all for your valuable input.
This is a great forum!
