I've had my 200 about a week now and to be honest, it's quite a bit of pain staking trial and error so i've found with this heli.

I had numerous problems with vibrations and quite honestly my ignorance and inpatience didn't help with the matter. Lots of bits kept breaking and I couldn't get a whole battery of flight from it without something going wrong. I've now rebuilt my heli with the shaft drive conversion, a few other small upgrades ( along with rebuilding my T-Rex 500 with TT ) and have tried to balance the head to as best as I could.

Wow! That was my impression. Once setup right this heli is a little diamond, it is very fast and outruns my skills currently.

Just a few more tweaks and I reckon it will handle flips... loops ok, but still need some gyro tweaking.

Sweet! Yeah I too find this little guy to be very finicky and temperamental. When she's happy, man does she perform like a star... when she feels like it's that time of the month, seems like nothing helps... Overall though, what a great heli!

Yes,

Ditto on Crabsters comments...

She's a keeper, but talk about high performance, and high maintenance.

I think I compared her to a Ducati 900rr once, that's about right.

Keep your Ferrari, I like this little Beotch!

Watch your bearings, and the mountings. I've had all kinds of fun with ball links as well, suggest you check them for play/tightness, and size as needed. And Locktite!, never forget!!!

3s is working well for me, I kept the weight down using <freaking amazing> Dymond servos and the 2100/3100 Logictec. Man, I'm way happy with this one... ...but check after every flight. I'ts always something.

I feel like I now own an F-16, with parts that cost pennies, but an effing overhaul every day ;-)

"...so be it, she's worth the time..."
"...owner of more cool stuff than the law allows, but this heli is magnificent..."

It's funny how many owners of Gaui start these kind of threads. It is really a great bird.
