At first I had it on top to the tail gear drive assembly..I was using a black sensor...went to test fly it, and it went crazy...put on bench, an VBAR vib chart showed it off the top. So, I did a complete rewire on the heli and placed the sensor under the HeliJive, just in front of motor. Same problem, went nuts again...I then replace the black sensor with a newer blue one, still mounted under HeliJive, and vib levels are below 96, and all is well...

Thanks guys! Made four flights this evening. Breaking in the batteries...This thing is a monster with the Xera 4530 and the Helijive Using a 13T pinion, I set my flat curves(running mode 4 for now) to 65, 70, 75 ,80....Had to adjust them to 60, 65, 70 and 75...60 give me 1950, 65 was 2030, 70 was 2180 and 75 is BALLISTIC!!!! at 2250...This thing is going to be a ball!!

With my setup, it feels alot like my Logo 600 3D did, expect more solid...It's hard to describe..anyways, it's a great machine. I'm really surprised that I don't see more of these being flown and talked about...

+1 for curtisyoungbloodhobbies.com (CYE shop)

Also worth mentioning is Experiencerc.com. Since you fly Compass and Outrage helis like I also do, they are a great shop to go to as well. They carry parts for all three brands, plus many more. So it's like a one stop shop for all.

Ahh, I stand corrected. Thanks Helienv. It must have just switched over recently.
