Default Rave Ballistic 635 upgrade !

Just finished installing a new VBar Neo and Scorpion Tribunus 200-14 ESC in my Rave. Totally awesome helicopter !!! With the VControl it is really easy to setup. This Heli is so easy to work on as well. I made a little male by female extension for the programming the esc then I don't have to remove it to do firmware updates.

Awesome Paul.

I was flying it again all day. It was pretty windy and the 635 can handle it.

The Ballistic is still one of my favorites to fly. One of these days I might try the 635. Curtis said this was his favorite to fly, he had the Scorpion 4225-550 on his.

I really like the 635. I have a Kontronik Pyro 700-52 motor custom wound. It has a lot of power and is fairly light. The Scorpion 4225-550 looks like a great choice.

Finally got around to taking a picture of Ballistic #2. It was crazy windy today flying on the leading edge of TS Cindy but still a whole lot of fun.



And a picture of Ballistic #1

I think I had my head speed a little high. Turned it up because it was windy one day but the next day it calmed down so I lowered it to 1950 rpm and it was flying great. I had it up around 2200 - 2300 rpm and it was a little too high.
