mhills, buck up. We are all in this together. All I ask is dedication and focus. We will be flying 12hr days from here on out until 08/2013. Can you set aside your personal life and drive the newbies to success?

We will be able to allot comp time with time loops. Also, per your contract, time must be made up. In your company handbook, please reference: Dimension and Time - What Does it mean?

So I haven't even put the new parts on the 500 Tarot belt case assembly. I get tired of thinking about it. A genuine Align TT conversion kit is $80 shipped. Or just go back to the Align belt plastic case. The Align plastic case is fine.

It's a lot of work to change to nice looking Tarot crap. I've spent some $ on the 500 swash and 450 rotor hub, and it was like a fn joke. Links dragging, screws breaking when removing the screw for the first time. F Tarot.

I can't believe there has been so much comparison to Align = Tarot. I have had the most problems period with Tarot.

Where are you getting your Tarot parts from? I just got my first Tarot tail rotor shafts, and to me they seem as smooth as Align ones, and the same diameter. By contrast the HK Skya ones are rough and a looser fit in the bearings.

That depends, HK has made many different esc's. I have a red one that has a 5amp bec, but some have only a 3amp. It also depends on your radio. Some RX's require more power than others. Also are you running FBL?

People on other forums swear to never use the built in bec. I have never had a problem using them. So I maybe just lucky!

And instead you will have radial bearings that will need to be replaced after every crash. I think model helicopters have enough bearings in places where they really don't need bearings already to add yet more unnecessary bearings.

Really, swashdriver arms don't need bearings at all, all they need are oilite bushings and a shoulder bolt and they'd work fine, and with less slop than with bearings.. My brother's milling machine has oilite bearings that are over half a century old and they're still perfectly fine. Show me ball bearings that old that haven't needed replacing yet. That's one thing I like about the RJX head, the plastic part is held on to the metal arm with a pin and E clips instead of superfluous bearings that only add unnecessary complexity.
