Thanks for the link. I need to show them how to do a pictorial writeup for us old and blind folks with their little pictures.

Junkman,

This heli is really sensitive I took off and started to move rapidly forward so I quickly reversed on the aileron stick. I never realized I was only 4feet off the ground... the heli arched backward right into the ground bending the tail boom rod Man this heli is gonna cost me a small fortune. I guess I'll be looking at you tail boom replacement tutorial soon, unless I can manually straighten it.

Sometimes you can straighten them out, sometimes you can't. I have went through 8 tail booms to date. It's crazy man, you fart around this bird and something will break!

Default Do it again?

OK--I am in the market for a single rotor helicopter having tired of my Blade MCX2 and my Exceed Blazing Star.

I was going to get the Blade 200 SRx (I do want a chopper that will be relatively easy to see and can fly outdoors) until reading your article here.

Would you buy it again? If so, what cautions would you take?

If not, what alternatives are out there for a not so new newby?

Thanks for your help and efforts.

Larry

Another big thanks to Junkman2008.

I was out practicing hovering and had no problems with the first battery. On the second battery, I experienced little elevator up response and had a crash into the fence. There appeared to be no major damage, so I tried to take off again and had very little rotor rotation. Turns out the set screw came out on my motor gear.

I was going to skip getting the hardware set the Junkman2008 recommended since most parts came with any hardware needed. But I decided Junkman2008 must know what he's talking about and ordered it along with most of the suggested spare parts. To my delight, the hardware set included set screws so I'm not grounded for several days as I thought.

I recommend that you follow the suggestions given in this thread as you'll get back in the air a lot sooner. Oh, and this how-to guide will save you a lot of time on your repairs.

I would definitely buy it again, especially if you are good enough to fly a fixed pitch heli. Keep in mind that I have no desire to fly 3D but this bird can get up and move pretty darn fast in expert mode. I am very happy that I have spent the crazy money that I have on this bird and now that I have learned to fly it in all modes (simple flying mind you), I have went the "bling" route and tricked mine all the way out. Folks didn't realize it was the same bird! I would definitely recommend it.

I ALMOST bought a second one today!

Hey guys, just a heads up. When I installed my new tail motor the other day I removed the boom so I could rotate it as I fed the wires back in. It made for a much better fit of the wires inside the boom. Before they were just kinda of crammed in there.

If everyone was already doing it this way then disregard.

Junkman -

No doubt in my mind that your 200SRX repair tutorial is the best and most detailed I've ever seen. Great detailed pictures, great narrative, and extremely informative!

AND I DON'T EVEN OWN ONE!!

Great job....

Can you get working on similar tutorials for the 130x, 300x, and MCPX? LOL!

Thanks again!!

Ken
