Dammit Tony... Youíre making me relive the 1.5 hours of pure frustration trying to get it squared up with holes that didnít align!

Once the CF was oriented the correct way, I didnít think the squaring up was tough or time consuming. All good now, provided it works.

Well, the thing thatís making this tolerable is that I barely flew last season after buying an Oxy 4 then Oxy 2. Iím getting to know them both right now as I wait for my 480 electronics. Normally, Iíd be going crazy but the Oxyís and my new 150X are the perfect distraction.

Once youíre done building the 480 you will forget about all the other little ones

Well I have all my parts now. Weather was good but turned to crap again. Need to sun to comeback so I can get the motivation to wire it up and get the setup done. Nothing worse than finishing a build and being stuck just looking at the heli because the rain wonít stop. Feels like Iím always dealing with that.

Ha! I got busy with other crap and haven't been around HF so only seeing this now, lol.

I go through waves in my hobbies and got sidetracked. Still not done. As I said, weather turned to crap so had to find other things to do. I just need to find some motivation to get back at it again. The weather has improved drastically as of late so that might just do it!

Back when you started the "build", almost 3 months ago, wasnīt even thinking about getting a 480... Got one last week, built it, flew it and it is an awesome little heli, just what I needed, truly in love of it, honestly.


Flew it with 5000mah, cause thatīs what I have, flies pretty darn well with them, heavy, but melts my brain for 7-8 minutes, awesome, just awesome!


Hope yours soon enough sees the sky, youīre missing all the fun buddy!

That's awesome, Jorge! Hasn't helped that my flying buddy has been busy too. Now that Spring is officially here, I'll get out there soon. Looking forward to flying it and hoping I love it as much as you. What blades you running?

Got some Zeal, switch and edge. Tried the zeals first, havenīt tried the switch and edge. Zealīs are kinda noisy, you can feel them stall, but overall they are flyable, will be back home by the end of the month, gonna give the other two a try.
