Default Seems I have more dollars then sence

Well... after months of having my 250 sitting on my desk making fun of me for not flying it, I started to get the parts I needed. then I thought I should update the frame, hey they have a DFC head now... upgrade after upgrade... part after part....

I now have two 250

Only one of them is flying the other is in parts 1/2 build. but I don't need any parts for it, just need to build it up. May just sell it once I do.

I like the SE frame way better then the pro frame. The major pit fall of the Pro frame is the servo is now inside and left no room for the BeastX I do like the Pro canopy as it make a good match to my 500EFL.

The question I ask my self "Was it worth it?" H3LL YES. I had a great time today setting up the BeastX and tuning my 250. I only have one last item to address. BTW - I took the day off work to get my 250 in the air

when in normal and I give collective the tail drifts right. This does not happen in UI.

I am running:
SE Frame
KDE bottom and battery tray
DFC head
410 cyclic
JR290 rudder
New ESC and Motor
MicroBeast FBL Controller


I need to build a
Pro Frame
HS56 cyclic
Savox 2064 Rudder
Quark & Spek 6110
CC25 and Scorpion 39000kv

Which ESC did you use? I have either burned up three lipo batts or have damaged my esc.

What throttle curve are you running in normal mode? The 250 likes lots of headspeed, and the tail will kick under collective punches without adequate rpms. I think I run around 75-80% on my 250 with just a little wiggle under collective punch. At 90% and 100% (idle 1 and 2) it's solid. I have no experience with the microbeast, is there a capability to add some collective/rudder mixing? I run a SK720 on my 250 and I had to adjust the collective/rudder mix a bit to get the tail to hold properly.

Collective/Rudder mix on the 250 with a BeastX is a must - I think they call it Revo/Mix - rep F in the Parameter menu. I added it and it made a *world* of difference. You need the software version 3.0 for it to work. You can get the BeastX to fit if you put it between the motor and the tail servo.
