I just today ordered one of these for mine.. i couldnt be bothered trying to paint the milk jug one :)


Thinking back on it, light blue probably wasn't the best choice for the bottom half of the canopy haha. Oh well. It will suit me fine for hover training and basic beginner stuff. I hop to lose the stock 2 piece canopy canopy eventually anyways. Wonder if a logo 500 canopy will fit??

This is my Gaui

425XF Frame - Torque tube tail
Hyperion DH16-SCD cyclics
MKS BLS-980 and Spartan Quark on the tail
430 Wide Chord Mavrikk Main Blades - Edge Tail Blades
Tonic-X Z20A 1470 KV motor w/ Hobbywing 80A Platinum ESC

Had my first good flights today but in the last one it developed a bunch of tail vibration out of nowhere at Idle1 headspeeds :bawl.

This thing is crazy fast and powerful even at relatively low headspeeds. :noteworthy

Now I just need the Big Balls bearing blocks to complete this guy.

My "new to me" 425.

I love this thing and don't even like flying my 450Pro any more. Gonna sell it and get another Gaui... Maybe an X5.

Looks good - one thing though - it looks as if you have the plastic pitch / aileron / elevator lever arms and but not offset on the servo arms - this will lead to interactions. You either need to get the Gaui CNC pitch / aileron / elevator lever arms or build the offset onto the servo arms.

Yeah, I noticed that as well. I bought it used from a member here and that's how he had built it. Right now, I'm only hovering and praticing orientation so it's really not affecting me but I do plan to fix it.

...All of the servo horns have the prescribed offset as called out in the instructions...
If you measure them, you will see it...Were the servos changed?
Just go for the CNC/Metal ones and then change the horns to straight across ones...

Painted my canopy today. Nice wasp colors.
I planned to also do the tail-fins yellow/black and add some decals... but i'm not sure it will improve any further. i like the clean look it has now.

Im digging that canopy sp00f :thumbup:

Thanks nexgen!

One more picture as i have painted my tail-fins. The 250 stands out now, but it will also go the yellow way. I have a cunning plan for that one :lol:.
I have some thin woven fiberglass and FG-resin ready.
It will look like a Henseleit TDR when im done with it.
The 450 canopy was the paint test canopy.... still not sure what to do with the stickers on the Hurri.

Had my Gaui 425 for 2 days before I managed to crash it. Bits have arrived and been fitted, blades will be fitted later this evening

Canopy requires painting but I'm really pleased with the Trex 600 landing struts :)

Got to say the Gaui is a lovely looking heli!

Ok, so here is my Hurricane 425, streched to a 550 with 550 mainblades and longer tail.

New Years Day flight on the stretched 425.

I have had over 50 different heli's from micro to 90 size nitro's. I really love my Gaui! I trade an RJX 50 N for it. I changed all the electronics in it, and now it is a rocket!!

It has a Z motor, CC Ice 75, Futaba 520 Gyro w/ S9254 on tail, Hitec HS5625 on cyclic, AR7000 Rx. I really like the choice that you can use either mini or full size servos. I opted for the full size of coarse!!! We have it set to run in Idl up 2 the head speed is around 3400 RPM!!! Its a monster and I love it!!!

I have other pics, but I put them in another post and don't know how to get them.
