The NX4 is a great heli.
You might think about using a 2s rx pack, considering what the specs are on the tail and throttle servos. It save room and it's simple.
Don't forget a glow igniter!

Yes I do have a 2 cell lipo RX, the gaui tail servo is rated 4.8 or 6v the KST are 6 to 7.4v so I think I will set my BEC at 6v to make all servos happy.


I will use a glow extension until I can pick up a switch glow like I have on my Goblin Black Nitro.


Thanks for the advice!

Great little heli. A 2 cell LiFe battery works good too, no regulator needed. Had my NX4 for 5 years now, original battery is due for replacement, so it has worked well for me. Uses about 175ma per flight FYI.
Enjoy!

Almost 100% complete, just need to install throttle servo and go test fly.

Someone let me try an nx4 last year when I was returning to the hobby. I liked it and so I got one. I enjoyed the one I have but I was sad when it needed work so I got a second identical one. I almost exclusively fly these two twins every weekend now.

For the life of me, I cannot understand why they discontinued the T10.

Fly this with the little gasser and it is even more enjoyable.

From what I have read people didn't break it in right and said it was a bad engine.

After a full season on the NX4 I think I might have to buy another one, absolutely a blast to fly, definitely one of my most favorite and maintenance free heli in my fleet. My other helis are Goblin Black Nitro, Gaui X5, and Oxy Max 380. I like them all and the NX4 definitely holds its own.
