You're welcome. We wouldn't want you to get false hope that this time you will get a heli that will fly right out of the box, and keeps flying, right?

I was thinking, on the current Solo Pro the tail motor is the same as the main motor of the Solo coax. Perhaps the upgraded tail motor of the Hughes is the same as the upgraded main motor of the Bravo III?

always consider that I am referring to the model in my possession
and I guarantee you can change from one put into production,
I have a model that has never been traded in my country (the one with the tail raised).
however, the engines of bravoIII are: 1 with the top plastic white and imprinted with a number 4 above, while the other is the gray plastic top, with printed number 12,
This new model appears to be different, although I encountered a small problem.
when you discharge the battery model tends to turn on itself ............

You mean turn off, I think, some sort of Low Voltage Cutoff or LVC that shuts down the power when the battery gets discharged?

I do not think that is a serious problem, because after 5-7 minutes of flight, the lipo is low, and the model loses stability slightly tail .......... this may indeed be so good it makes you realize it's time to land,
and reload the lipo ...

Okay, already had me worried there. When I push flight time to the limit with a high performance lipo like the Intellect I get the same on my stock Solo Pro. These batteries keep a high voltage even close to the end of their capacity, and then voltage drops rapidly. As long as there is no cut off by the receiver, that it simply cuts off power to protect the battery. I'd rather fry a lipo costing a few dollars, than have my heli crash and pay a lot more for repairs.

And when you time flights and keep a close watch on how much % throttle is needed to hover, you can land safely before the battery gets too weak.

Bravo SX update

Hey Everybody...SoloPRO PM'd me and asked that I pop in the thread to shed some light on this new heli. Official name is the BRAVO SX. The helicopter will be available in 4 fuselages which I have attached. Funny, no black SKU, just a dark blue...so we'll see when they come in. Another odd thing is the pictures show the new Solo PRO linkage being used, but the BRAVO SX has it's own linkage SKU, so there is still a bit of mystery on the linkage debate. The SX shares the same main shaft and swash as the PRO, so a linkage length difference would be odd too, but we'll see on the production heli. These pictures are as of yesterday, so they should be very close to production. Unfortunately, NE hasn't made any changes to the flybar, and will be sharing it with the Solo PRO. The main motor is also a new SKU, as are the skids and main frame.
We are expecting the helicopters to ship within the next 2 weeks or so.

Not bad looking

Too bad they didn't replace the fly bar cause it sucks - too flimsy!

Thanks for the update here as well. I'll see if I can get the topic name changed.

As for the linkages, perhaps the receiver is mounted on a different place since the frame is most likely different. Then the metal push rods between servos and swash have to be different.

A bit out of context with the thread...but we just received a new batch of Solo PRO receivers, and they are RX-01. Haven't got a chance to test one yet, but I would assume the SX will be running it also.
