I don't recall now honestly. If I made a mistake in the video then trust the manual. It's posssible something changed with the ESC programming since I built mine?

Question

I just finished building my little Gaui ("What can I say? It's a little heli!") and I'm very excited to take it out. One issue I had was that the end of the CF control rod for the tail servo was rubbing on the tail fin. I could have changed the orientation of the servo mounts a little, but instead I put a small piece of a zip tie in between the fin and the tail case. It gave me just the room I needed. I had another small problem and I was hoping for a suggestion or two. I bought a JR DS290G servo for the tail. The screws that attach servo balls were too small for the servo arms that came with the 290G. Any suggestions as to what I should do? Are there balls that size that have bigger threads? I'm pretty new to this so don't be afraid to keep it dumbed way down. My gratitude to all those who wish to offer advice.

I *was* going to say "check out this thread for the fix" but then I realized you started this thread... anyway, I thought I would post it for others to see.

HF user Nexgen also did some great videos on the Gaui 200 with some tips worth looking at!
Watch them here in this post.

I also added that link to the first post in this thread so all new Gaui 200 users can find them. Nice job Nexgen!
