I'm checking out a heli that seems to be made by them. Looks nice, but it's a pile of garbage. NOTHING fits, threads are badly cut, geometry is... strange. Impossible to get the head in order. Either it binds or it's sloppy.

I think lots of the "off" companies are using a softer aluminum to make it easier and cheaper to machine.

And their website is a little "thin" on info. Doesn't look like a place I'd klick "order"...

I'm using the cnc tail slider ,cnc bell crank and cnc tail rotor blade grips on my 500.
And sold the cnc tail gear case for 20.00 as i have a TT Fitted.

helidirect also sell the bit's as a upgrade
