Hi, I appreciate the input.
I have plenty of smoke coming out but I don't have a header tank as of yet other than removal of air bubbles during 3d flight and a little extra fuel what other purpose does it serve and is it neccesary to have one for just hovering and ff flight? Another guy at thee field has the same heli as mine but with a OS.32 and his runs at a higher head speed and is much more responsive than mine. How is the Power on the TT.39 compared to the OS.32 ? And what is the max safe speed to spin the TT 550MM woodies with glued root ends? Thanks in advance!!
PS I did fly 3 packs today through my Blade-400. I was going to fly my Raptor, but after I had it loaded in my car the clouds came and it rained servos and tailbooms for about an hour and a half so by the time it quit raining it was almost dark so I didn't have time to even get it out of the car
, so I just flew my Blade around and chased the neighborhood cat around alittle
