This one can't compare to these awesome scales in this thread but this was my first attempt at putting any work into a scale. I finished it a couple of months ago but hardly fly it. It flies great but i think it looks better hanging up then in pieces in a box. Any of you guys do the same? I should have gotten used to it a littlle more before a made this video though. The nothing scale A109wolf .

So what if it can't compare? The only really important factor is whether you had fun building it and enjoy flying it. Don't keep it on the shelf, it is built for flying!
Mine are no beauties either but I really enjoy flying them, rather than building something so pretty I am afraid to damage

Looks like you are flying without E-stab, and I am genuinely impressed!

Just one small advise: Go a little bit slower. As you might have noticed, non-E-stab rotors really dislike abrupt manouvres and the only way to master them is to really very slowly build up the pace (MUCH slower than you probably feel is necessary), otherwise you will start to accept the less favourable habits of non-E-stab and keep correcting them afterwards (as can be seen in the video), instead of preventing them from happening during the manouvre.

It happened to me and I really had to take a step back and build up the short tight turns and stuff like that from the ground up.

Nice heli, and nice flying! (and I really like the start of your video... )

Brgds, Bert

Hey thanks Bert, actually there is a CopterX FBL unit on there so between the quality of that thing (actually ok I think?, never had anything better...) and taking the video clips the first day I got it finished could be some of what you are seeing. But I will remember your tips next time I fly it. Thanks again! Tim

Just looked over at RR. I'm sorry about the police 500 ouch! I have a CH-53 shell maybe I will bring to our FF. I just have never been happy with the raised tail.

Nice! are those the retracts sold on ebay? I kept drooling over them, but thought I could buy a few more packs instead. Maybe this winter unless you have a link to better ones. The tail blades that I have on mine are tarot CF $7 a set and come perfectly balanced. I have them on my 500pro and 500e.

It comes with the Fuselage but you can use this in case you broke the wheel control arm (it made from plastic) or you can buy from amainhobby.com ( http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ontrol-Arm-Set )

and I change the linkage ball with the one that has hole in it.

Im using servo Hitec HS225BB, at ebay for $18.95 it can be program from you TX and I put it on Gear slot in my receiver.

OK I see that is the same setup as mine, I am using a Hitec 81 in mine with the turnigy retract speed reducer. There is a nice set with suspension on ebay for $70
