Yup, me too. I got hard on him and he took offense, threatening to leave. Well, I didn't want him to leave, so I said, "If you dish it you should be able to take it. And besides, I though we were all having fun with this." To his credit he stuck around and was very nice to me.

I'm sorry they banned him.

If better add mor if worshe take it off and try one other blade. It is trial and error just like with tail blades.

Thanks, I just want to even fine tune everything better. My tail rotor blades are pretty evenly balanced but since I am going to new blades I want to make sure it is the best I can get it. I am having difficulty seeing the original color due to the dark mountains in the background and even when I fly it inside the basketball court under fluorescent light it difficult to see. I notice when under fellows in my club fly red airplanes, they are much easier to see.

Sartav, I will try your way and check it with Charles's way also. It will be an interesting experiment. Hey, dude looks like you may have been a bad boy?

Yah, he really was fun to visit with and had a sharp wit.

When I'm stranded in my living room watching "True crime drama" with my wife I can escape here and "pretend" to be having a quality moment yet be hangin' with the boyz!

"He who will remain nameless" unplug your router for 15 minutes. Plug it back in, get a new handle like "non-confrontational-middle-class-white-guy-with-too-much-time-on-his-hands" or "IsweariwontbeaPIA" and come back and hang out!

On another note, I stopped by my LHS and found that there have been only two returns on the 130x. It's a big shop in a metro area and I found that to be pleasing.

One problem was the Tx/Rx wouldn't bind and they couldn't recall the other issue. Good news as I figured that they couldn't be all bad!

300USD though for a tiny heli is ever-so-slightly-painful!

I'm on my third A gear with about 90 flights on my 130X. Seems no matter how I adjust the A/B gear mesh the wear is the same. I'm thinking the A gear material is just too soft. As a result I asked my LHS to hold a metal A gear for me when they arrive.

I wonder whether his situation is the same as Bob's. Can he still post like Bob?
Sertav has been banned as a troll account.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/recentwarnings.php

This is his fourth account at least; he was previously sviking, mhunter, and another one I can't remember the name of. I doubt sertav will be his last.

Great! I have been flying heli's for under a year. I retired last year and accidentally got hooked on heli's after my sister gave me a coax heli for Xmas. I have all Blade heli's (120SR, mCPX, 130X, 350X, 450X). I mainly fly FFF and circuits. I don't have the desire to do 3D.
