Maybe it was mine because it was one of the first kits.

You can run a 6 to 10 cell Lipo with a Caste Creations PHX 85HV and a Z-Power Z50A-800. That's what I run on a Flight Power 6 cell 5000mah Lipo and love it!! I sport fly. This setup leaves me room to upgrade to a 10 cell Lipo for all out 3D. :glasses2: Hope this helps.

*EDIT After testing the 6s setup for a couple of days I will be going to a 8s or more likely a 10s setup. The 6s just doesn't give good flight times on this heli.
What chargers can you use with the 10 cell?

It just occurred to me that this kit doesn't come with esc or motor! The price of this model seems much higher than the align 600.

Bob, You might want to replace that tail hub with the PV0499 Sus Tail Hub. It is one piece with the threads for attaching the tail blade holders instead of removable threaded rods. Its only around 6 bucks and is supposed to fix a known tail hub problem.

Hmm dont see why it's function would be different other than it looks steel instead of aluminum?
Are the aluminum ones stripping out?

I'm not sure exactly what happens to cause it to fail. I remember seeing posts about the hub on just about every forum I read so when I bought my Titan I picked up 2 for my Raptors.... I have enough problems already :wink: Here are a few posts about the hub:
