No dramas other than not putting canopy on right and getting little crack. Now i discovered that u leave the swash at the bottom and it just slips over the top like the tdr lol.


Since changing to 19t and getting 2100rpm with 13deg pitch it flies really well and tail holds better too.

I had the same question, thanks for the setup sticky Merc.
Did you guys get the revised parts listed at the bottom of the build page?
I guess they're being sent with my stock canopy so I'll get my build started pretty soon I guess.
I ordered the 16 and 20t pinions to try along with the included 18t.
Helicraze are you using the YGE 320 or 160 and what's your setup to get the low 2000's hs?

Gerd emailed me pics of the canopy's being done by Fusuno- the 2 he already posted, so these will be available!

Yeh im not gonna fit them
Till needed.

So fusuno will do canopy??? I much prefer stock as its lighter and tolerance better.

Using 4525le and 19t for 2100rpm at about 85%. i fly between 1900 and 2100rpm.

Fusuno as always makes great paint jobs and I hope that the canopies from them will fit in the swash area. The necesarry tolerances there are very small. Only way would then to remove the devils horns.

If you put some hook and loop tape on the plate and on the batteries and it is a LOT easier to put the batteries in and out. I have the plate under the batteries so that it can slide easily over the bottom struts. I also sanded off the edges on the plate to try and save the rubber O rings from premature wear, and also on the frame where to O rings rub.
I'll put up a pic in the build thread.
