Yes it has! Shipping began last week to dealers! Make sure to get on a backorder list with your favorite retailer, because they won't stay in stock for long.

Nice!! Cant wait to get home and start on mine.

Did you have any issues putting it together? I heard there was a problem with one to the head screws being too long and not allowing the head to snug down.

Nope no issue with the head screws. I did use a digital caliper to verify the length of the bolt and matched the screw bag set with the corresponding assembly parts and do one section at a time flowing with the manual.

Theres a few things I can give tips on;

-when assembling the parts to the main frames, don't forget the small detail I didn't notice until I started working on the other frame and thought wasn't this supposed to have the same thing on the other one?
Its the landing gear doublers. A bit hidden in the first frame view drawing.

The other thing is the nut drivers, in the tools required list it shows a set of metric nut drivers required but the only one I did actually use is the M7 nut driver for the Jesus head bolt nut and the main gear hub to main shaft bolt.

The tail rotor bellcrank has a 'cup' for the ball on the t/r slider to go into, there's a Allen screw that goes inside and it was a bit tricky figuring out which one goes in and I wasn't sure of the length of the small Allen screw.

There's only a few times the manual mentions to use the green loctite...one of them being the boom support rods into the tail clamp.

When putting together the radio tray, there's two 4mm cross rod/spacer that goes on the bottom plate. If not paying attention, it can end up on the radio tray and you would think the hole was stripped or too big only to realize it's supposed to go on the bottom plate and not the radio tray which calls for 3mm rods/spacers and the bottom plate uses two 4mm rods/spacer.

Just got mine, building right now. Thanks for the tips. One question. The blade and rudder grips come factory installed, can you verify that the thrust bearings where greased or did you have to take them apart and do it? thanks...

They come factory greased. Both of them.

As for the tail blade grips, when you install it onto the hub, a lil clear grease will come out... wipe the grease off before installing the tail rotor blade grips bolt so it doesn't contaminate the loctite.

Most of them get thread locked and greased but it's always a good idea to take them apart and double check. Don't wanna risk all that money you have invested and saftey on someone elses watch ya know. Double check it for sure !!
