Default New carbon fibre tail

Hi All,

My heli had a bad tail wag when I bought it second hand.
But it was also damaged by the previous user (crashed most likely).

I bought new Havok Carbon tail and canopy because it looks so much better. But when i received it I was surprised about the weight difference and it also seems to fit better into frame.

I flew it last week and did some tuning, (use Graupner remote and FBL) and no tail wag anymore..

Still use plastic and stock elements. Put this was a world of difference to me and the heli looks much more like Goblin quality...

But it is an investment... You could start just with the tail. The canopy should not make a difference

I wonder if they updated the Havok from the other carbon tails? (Did you originally have the plastic one) The OP has the Comp with a carbon tail already; that’s why I’m wondering if the Havok one was updated.

I have both the carbon and havok booms. To my untrained eye I am not really seeing any noticeable differences. They both weigh the same.
