Thanks for pointing the gyro problem out. I do know to mount it vertically but
in the excitement of the build, I must have forgot. That was my last bit of gyro tape too.

I am pleased to report the first manufacturing defects.
Please look out for these issues.
1. The tail rotor control arm broke where the ring slips over the ball.
2. The uppermost part of the tail drive gear broke causing the belt to slip off.

just checked the tracking number for my HK250GT, should be arriving today

kinda annoying how my HK250GT order beat my HK250 plastic order to me , since the plastic order has a motor for my sniper, servos and rx for the 250 and a few other pieces, oh well, teach me to choose budget shipping

This is the control arm. You can see the ball link is only half of what it should be.


This is what the tail gear should look like


This is what it looks like now.

My plastic version was ordered on Sep 25. I received notice that it shipped on Sep 26. No shipping info showed for about a week. It now states that it left Hong Kong on Oct 6. It sat in the Hong Kong mail facility for about 9 days. China holiday season????

That is probably from the control links on the slider rubbing on it from improper set up.
