Looking forward on what they announce. I just worked on my Estratus yesterday to get it to fly again.

Not a pilot. Yes nitro is shipping but that is not the announcement.

My guess is that the Team Heliproz website goes public, which is very cool. It is a very good resource that is setup very nice. Maybe one other surprise as well.

So what's new on the tail Edsel? Is it just the grips or are those off a whiplash?

It is off the whiplash. Some of the team pilots have been flying this setup for some time as I understand. I have been flying that belt idler config for about 2 months now. It works great! You don't need the belt super tight as the idler keeps the belt right on the center of the pulley. I am not sure if this is the final config, they still might make some more changes.

Ah, yes I see. I won't be able to push my finger down there to check the belt tension now!

Not sure how that idler is different from the stock one.

Correction--I see the new one is slightly forward of the stock location. Took some time looking back and forth to pick up the difference!
