Default Holy piro batman...

So I took my blade out to get some real time with the new gear...and holy bajeezuz. I was hovering and tried my first piro since the new tail and servos and gyro and such.

O

M

G

I thought it was fast with the t-rex grips and the stock setup...NO

Before my brain even calculated wth was going on my heli had already done two full rotations. SO FAST it is crazy!

And as soon as I let off the rudder that gyro STOPPED no drift, just BAM! STOP.

This new setup is gunna be fun I cant get this grin off my face

I want to tone it down by adjusting DR, but at the same time I dont

Glad to hear another good report on the 770. I'm sold for sure now, might score one in a few weeks. Just takes money!

Now go hit the spin cycle Skunky! lol

I am askeered to even go for the K&B's now lmao. Of course all I need to do is reduce the piro rate, as I am sure the K&B have better authority than the t-rex.

If you want even more authority, use the K&Bs with the chinese weights = insane

Edit:

I just read fireup's thread. Nice mod, see he sells the jig too. But I think I will wait until my skill level actually calls for that.

Strip the ano and reseal if if you want. Even dye it another color like black. I plan on it. Used to do it all the time with my nitro car parts so I have all the ano stuff.

What did you use to "Strip" it and how did you dye it another color?

You need to have an anodizing kit and setup to do all that.

770 is no joke, it's a lot of gyro. My Lepton piros so fast the straps can't hold the battery.
