I'm going through fuel faster than I ever have before, but I would hazard a guess I'm getting around 7-8 tanks out of a UK 5litre bottle of optifuel. That's with quite a high headspeed but as above I'm not draining the tank completely dry and I'm using a header.

Still though, gotta love 12+ minute flights

4 gallons through my 4.1 so far.
Absolutely love it.
Nice long flights, plenty of power, feels and looks great in the air.


.....might try it as an 800 next.....

Default 600 Tanks through G4

I completed my 600th tank through my original G4 today. Still going strong and it remains my favorite heli.

Probably around $2,300 in 30% and 130 hours flight time.
I replaced one set of 451's at 400+ flights due to one squealing motor and I didn't want to run just one new servo. I put in a new 251 and 9252 at the same time.
At around 500 flights, I replaced all the plastic gears and most bearings(although not the mainshaft bearings), just because they are not expensive.
Three rebuilds on 91 3DS motors (bearings seem to last around 200 tanks) with a short run of a 91SRX that didn't fit my style of flying (mostly 1600 headspeed with 12 - 15 minute flights).
A couple of sets of head dampers and one set of main thrust bearings although the original ones looked good.
The heli sure doesn't owe me anything. The original clutch is working great. Try that on a 700N. It's fresh right now with a newly rebuilt motor and fairly new servos. It just keeps on ticking.
Thunder Tiger got this one right.
