608 will fit. In fact it fits better than 607/617 since it's narrower. 617 is as wide as you can go.

6014...no way.

Cool, good to know it fits! If I get one, a 607FS will be going in.

I've had a production version for a few days, but haven't had a chance to shoot video. I'm heading to the field tomorrow, will try to get some if I can!

Yes, Align DS410 servos on cyclic and DS420 on tail with Spartan. The cyclic servos are digital with metal gears. The Align gyro is pretty good too, I flew it and was quite impressed with its performance.

Heli is flying extremely well. It has a very solid feel, stock power is stronger than GAUI 200 power. Tracks well and feels connected. I still prefer my 700 though

Is a logitec 2100 and 3100g combo likely to work really well on the tail on one of these? The prices are a fair bit higher than i expected for the super combo this would be a cheaper route for me.

I thought it would be cheaper to get the super combo than buying your own parts. I'm running a 2100T/3100G on the gaui and am not overly impressed with it, so I will go with Align's 750 super combo, I expect it to be great.

BlahBlah I assume Bert is comparing to the stock Gaui motor as not everyone knows he runs a 5150 in the Gaui (not everyone has seen that "insane power" video) and it would be unfair to compare Align's stock motor to the 5150. Will have to wait and see how the 250's stock motor copes with me abusing the collective as usual.

Thats a bummer lol. I actualy have that combo on my 450 and its holding quite well, but i have a spare 401 and it would have been cheaper to buy a 250 combo and put in the 2100T and 3100G, then buy a 9257 to put in the 450 with the 401 i have spare.

I use the 2100t/3100G combo on my Gaui and it does good, but it was a headache getting it to work well on the 200. It doesn't like vibes at all then the tail has to be setup mechanically . the one thing that I do like about the 2100T is it allows you to set the travel limits for each side independently since the arm binds if it moves to far towards the tailcase ;p..
