Also the motor pinion seems extremely close to the crown gear. Is this the same as on the Agile 7.2?

If so, does it cause any problems with wear on the crown gear?

Default Agile a7

Will a printed manual be included in the kit or a online manual like the chase 360? Thanks for any help.

I'm pretty interested in the A7 - please tell us where we can find the manual, and also what components you are using.

Hoping to pick up mine soon. They were supposedly out of stock at THB.

Tengu motor or xnova?

Manual: http://static.rc-batteri.no/manual/K...7%20manual.pdf

It is not included in the kit in printed form.

The quality feel was like the 7.2 so that was good, and the build was easy and quick. Most larger things are premounted so you just loosen and add locktite. THe CF sides do need 5 minutes with wet sanding before building, after that they are great

I am using a Tengu 4525, there is not room for a 4530 without modifying the canopy ..

My setup is rather cheap only expensive thing is the motor.
Servos: KDS DS725+DS525
FBL: Ebar v2 (or Spirit if I can not get it like I want)
Motor: Tengu 4525
ESC: ZTW Gecko 150A Opto (12S), Hae not used it before so its to test it.
And KDlipo 5000mah/6S/70C packs.

I'm surprised you can't get a 4530 under the canopy. I would have thought that motor size should be standard for the A7.

Is the limitation relating to the Tengu 4530 spec or will no 4530 motor fit under the canopy?

I was a bit suprised myselfe aswell. But I guess you could move the mounts a bit or just make a cutout in the canopy. It is hitting in the front top part of the motor. Nothing else. But the motor I tried was the KDS 4730, but the size there seems to match a normal 4530.

Attached is two bad pics of the side, those were the only one got now but I can take some new ones later.

Thanks for the info.

I heard that Egodrift are bringing out a new high performance spec of the 4525/4530 motors, but I can't find any update on their facebook page. Any idea when they will be available?

EDIT: Turns out that the new spec is on their website. 4530 HT.

Maiden went fine, but gov in the esc was so-so. Other then that all good. Will also replace the kbdd tail blades as they were humming a bit.

Weight is 3.8kg without batteries but with battery tray and canopy. so AUW around 5.2-5.4 depending on the batteries use I whould think.
