Default New X5: I'm offically a believer (open letter)

I have been setting up my X5 FES for a while now with the help of this thread. Finally got it tuned and have been flying it regularly. I freaking love it. It's as smooth and powerful as you all have stated throughout this thread. I even let the local hot shot give it some smack and he was impressed as well. I took my 500e pro (my old favorite) up after flying the Gaui and thought something was wrong with it. Felt slow with no pop. guess I have a new go to bird. I had some older Gaui's in the past and had written off the brand after being disappointed with performance/quality. Gaui uped their game for sure!

Thanks to all you guys who gave me tips with setup and thanks for posting such amazing and honest reviews!

-Tim

I've been looking at this bird for awhile. Just bought the Synergy e5 which is sweet looks like this years goal is to add a x5 to the fleet.
