Hey Darryl, did you notice some heat on tail boom? mine was warm after 2 lipo packs, maybe heat dissipation from main motor goes through alu motor holder and transit to tail boom?
On your last video, did you made some flips? how much throtle input in it?

Hey A. I have not noticed heat from my boom, but it may be due to belt friction. Its a pretty small diameter boom to house a belt with a 1/2 twist no? LOL. Try checking your belt tension. Anyway, yes I flipped it a couple of times in the vid. The first one caught me by surprise on how quick it flipped over. The second one was flip into inverted climb and flip back around. It did not take much throttle at all. Of course at the time I was running 100% TC. I have adjusted down to 90% and like the feel there. It was very easy to flip it. Since the vid I have rolled it and tick-toc'd it and it is very quick. Still practicing my inverted hovering and 3D skills but this heli appears to be able to handle whatever I can throw at it. Don't know about Manny tho...LOL. There's the real test.

I have installed the Gaui 200 woodies and they seem to work perfect. Very stable and a lot quieter in flight. Not sure if they will hold up to 100% throttle nor 3D, but it is a cost effective alternative. Also, Helidirect has a special on CF blades where you buy 1 and get the second set for .99. Cool. Ordered a bunch last night. .

What size blades did you order? I am thinking of ordering some for my upcoming purchase. Also, what batteries are plug n play compatible so I don't have to solder...I only see the stock ones so far. Thnks!

Only issue there is that stronger ball links will transfer load to swash and then to servos. I think its better to ruin a ball link rather than a servo or the swash.

Can someone post up the dimensions of the stock battery please, alsot the weight and dimensions of holder would be great?

Are you satisfied of this heli?
How it fly?
Why there are not too much video on youtube?
Some experience of 3D?

I personally love the way it flies for my limited abilities. The obvious problem is parts availability in case of a mishap. I flipped it a few times, rolled her and attempted what I call tic-tocs but that's about all I am going to try until I have a bunch of parts to work with. Also, I don't think there are that many out there in the general flying population yet. Give it time and people will find out how nimble this heli is out of the box. Just my opinion of course.

Something like this may also be quite good http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...~50C_Lipo_Pack comes it several different capacities. No idea if these are any good though but they are only $8.
