Thanks! I found this one at helidirect. They were out of stock on this design for a while, I signed up for that "mail me when in stock" and snagged it quick. Looks like only one left again.

It is def. a great looking canopy, but it did rub the main gear when I got it. I stuck some spacers in between the main gear and the canopy and used a blow drier to heat it up so it would stay off the gear.

Don't get the Cx unit. Go with the zyx-s. I've used both and could never get the cx right. My first flight with zyx was great. Only like 15 or 20 more and it comes with several mounting pads and USB dongle

Yea that's usually how it works. If people continually bid on it over those several days it will end up at a higher price, so a good majority of people wait for the last 10 seconds like you said. In other news, got the limits sorted on my tail, so it has full movement now. My usual flying field was filled with people playing soccer so couldn't test it out unfortunately. Will go out in the morning and see.

I just found that the align white plastic tail blades are causing a serious vibration. I put them on the blade balancer, the one for bigger main blades, and it says they are balanced. Has anyone had this problem, and how to fix it? I'll try the hk stock black plastic and see if that solves the problem, but i like the look of white tail blades.

I wonder how many people bid on their own stuff. If it don't reach the right price they out bid it themselves. One of the rules on ebay is that you must have the item in your possession before putting up for bid. I already found Helidirect breaking this rule. I won some tail fins from them and next thing they were out of stock. Guess what my tail fins didn't show that they shipped until the day they got their shipment in.

Went for a fly today and I have a small setup issue with my gyro which I hope someone can help me out with.

Flying in idle up and doing pitch pump or full punch outs the tail holds very solid. Doing FF I get no tail wags either. When I'm hovering inverted and go max neg pitch to flip out my tail kicks and does a piro flip which I couldnt even do if I tried.

At one point the tail lost it and I just manage to save the heli before hittin gthe ground.

Can anyone one give me any ideas .. could it be the gyro or is it me?

Eveltoy: I'm Not even going to try on this one. So your tail and gyro hold strong In all orientation except when inverted And flipping rite side up again ? I'm at a loss. But interested in the solution. Let us know.
