The 3rd time was the charm and now I'm back at the bench. Oh, and did mention that all of these crashes were just in my garage???

You won't believe what I finally came up with, though, rebuilding from spare parts. I have parts from the SR120, the Solo Pro 328 and the Blade CX3 + Xtreme, Microheli and a couple of parts I don't know where they came from. I have some SERIOUS junk yard projects. Now if I can just keep the thing in the air with duct tape!!!!
Hmmm... brings to mind that old Clint Eastwood movie "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly". The ugly guy built an awesome revolver from a mixed bag of piece parts... Hey Sax, looked in the mirror lately? Just sayin'...

Hi, There is no charge light, just make sure the TX is off. Let it charge all night. The most I ever show is 5.7 volts, a new TX will take about 10 hrs for a full charge. After using mine for a few flights I just charge overnight. I have not had any problems doing so.WS

I think the link ends for the servo arms are symmetrical to allow for 1/2 turns.

Thanks Pilgrim. I'll start working on that and see how it goes.

micro, I just love the first aid you rendered to that poor plant. You should build a mini pair of crutches

I thought so too but in rebuilding my heli this week I could only get the dog bones onto the links one way. It wasn't the dog bones - they went onto the flybar easily.

I keep reading references to the MH aluminum rotor head on this thread, thing is, Microheli doesn’t even make an aluminum rotor head for the 120SR!

Yet people keep replying to these posts like they know what they’re talking about, even through the part doesn’t even exist!

The first step in helping someone is to Understand The Question.

Am I missing something here?
