Default Flew my LRH Faifa!!!

Finally got my Faifa with the LRH head and competetion grips on up in the air.

TBH I did not think the difference would be that much as how could they improve on the best flying heli out there?

Well OMG, it is extremely smooth, crisp and precise now in a way I never thought it would be. Screaming across the field it does not budge of its line even a mm. It truly does track like its on rails. I dont know if its any faster but boy does it shift.

Probably the first upgrade I have ever done that actually made a big difference and it worthwhile.

I have come close to selling this but I will never sell this heli, I have never owned any single heli as long as this (and thats saying something coming from me) as I have had this since they have had been released. Well the only time I will sell it is when I replace it with a new kit Faifa just so I can build it again

It does really make a difference. I find it quicker also in cyclics - noticeably more for the same setup in vbar.

Contact Tom @ helistore and I'm sure he will have everything in stock that you need to convert

It's well worth it

I will then put the 4525LE on the FAIFA. Hope it's not months away.
