Thanks Number! I added them to my shopping list. I still have the original Gaui tailservo and some pretty old Hitec's for cyclic on my X5. I don't really trust them because of age and that I don't know their history. They all makes annoying buzz-sounds too.

I run a 15t with my 1100kv motor which is unnecessary but lots of fun.
I'm curious what a good head speed range is for this size heli? I'm slowly learning about this but it seems the smaller the blades, the faster they need to be spinning!

I am using Promodeler on both my Oxy 4 and 5 with IKON2 and Spektrum.

Zero problems with hundreds of flights. Was not like this before I switched.

My 5 has the DS110CLHV on the swash and I could not imagine ever needing more.

Best of luck to you.
