Thickfog,
How are you liking those Alzrc main blades?
I've used their colored 75 plastic tail blades and they are just fine.

I am not a good enough pilot to feel differences in blades, so not a question for me.

They seem balanced and track well. And they cost me $12 a set at the time of purchase. So that's what I care about. Finish is not great, but I don't care.

On any heli, I only buy blemish blades if available.

I also run them on my Goblin 380s and align 470ls.

Rod,

Glad you chose to get one of these. Have you maidened yet? I know you were wondering how it would fly in comparison to your others in the same size range...curious what your thoughts were?

I used those blades on my 380 Gaui X3 tri head. They were pretty damn good IMO.

Yes, so just twice before this pic. Then today 3 flights.

I'm glad I got one. Being light like the 470l align, I was expecting a similar feel, but it flies so much differently. It handles and tracks like my goblin 380, but without all the weight. It's so quiet too!

I was flying at 2k rpm for 8 min flights and 3.78 to 3.8 on the batteries at the end! Awesome. At 2700rpm this thing is bat sheet crazy. People running 3k plus are nuts.

At 2200 I can pull off the same stuff as my goblin 380 at 2750. And that's only good for 5 mins and I'm hitting 3.6v.

While I disliked the thin profile canopy look in pics, this thing is awesome in person. So cool and tough, but racy looking.

It feels solid as can be in the hands. Like a fine, well-made tool or something.

Absolutely stock Brian2 settings. Not one thing needs changing. Solid tail, no wags. Crisp stops.

No belt sounds like ticking or rattling , no vibs, no weird stuff at all.

I can't believe for a beta that every single part was perfect and the build perfect. Not a single issue at all. Wow.

Fitting 1800 6s packs no issue and the canopy still slips on easily. That surprised me.

No battery trays to mess with. And easy battery mounting. I love that.

My fear of small parts is over. I thought the links were small, spindle small and tail shaft small. They work in harmony as a system. Really studying it, the tail shaft is only slightly smaller than the goblin 380, which is a monster size tail shaft. And this oxy 4 max shaft is still much larger than my align 470l tail shaft.

The main shaft is typical for a 380. The spindle small, but that is ok. Better to bend a cheap, easy to change part than other stuff. Small links: nope. Same size as goblin 380. The plastic ball links are smaller, but work just fine.
The swash and metal balls are tiny, but when do those ever fail? Sized fine and keeps it light.

I can't get over how quiet the drivetrain is even at higher headspeeds. It's belt-drive quiet. Unbelievable.

Luca did a brilliant thing sharing what he did with the oxy 4 360 (something I thought was not smart at first).

This was my most successful maiden with nothing going wrong at all and not a single thing to tune.
The wiring is insanely easy to route and manage and I did not have to use a single cable tie or anything. It just works. Hobbywing 50 fit easily and wires all fit perfectly. Easy to get to also.

From chill and floaty to ballistic this thing does it all. 1800 rpm is fun to do slow circuits, basic flips, rainbows, and such and it still does it well.

Pretty neat. I have not been that impressed with many helis for a while now. This one impresses me.

Only annoying thing is rear servo lower screws. Well, I found a simple method to install /remove easily now. So no big deal!

Has to be the best 200 dollar kit I've ever bought!

Anyone that likes the 380 size should certainly give this a try. I can't think of any reason they'd be sorry for buying it. And for being only a sport /beginner 3d pilot, I'm still critical as hell about many aspects of a heli. I call it like I see it. I own many helis of many brands and I will call out their weeknesses if they have any. I don't hide or protect any one brand.

As such I still love my Goblin 380, but the extra flight time and ability to run lower headspeeds on this oxy starts to break my love. I like pod and boom helis more too.
Overall they both fly very well. The tail on the oxy 4 max is stronger and crisper though.

I'm going to assume same crash strength as the oxy 4 which was very good and cheap to repair too.

Edit:
nvm, it appears HF is still having issues hosting image codes from file sharing providers. Guess they decided not to fix this.

You won't be disappointed. I found mine to be very, very good. Already ordered better weather for the holidays.
