Okay, you've got it flying great. From my experience, that means you can bet your house on what is going to happen this weekend!

Mine is ready. It's the FBL, the quality is surprising! The programming with usb was easy, just need to get use to the program! I thing it took me longer to figure the programming than building the heli itself! They only part that I think I will change is the tail boom block, there is a play with the front geat, it goes up and down. Same thing happen with my Tarot.

Got to agree. I'm currently putting the fbl together myself. Compared to the older Hk birds the quality is fantastic. I don't see any slop at all and the screws have been improved significantly. Even the gears are useable, on mine at least.

The frame screw are bigger too! There a few Phillips screws in the head that I'm not a big fan but they did not strip!

Are you using the ZXY-S with a remote rx? I'm using an orange remote, hopefully it will be strong connection!

No mate, standard ZYX, had great success with my first one on my 500FBL so bought a second one off ebay for this little 450. I am using an Orange 6 channel RX with a satellite on my T-Rex 450 Pro and will probably do the same on this HK FBL one.

That is what I have on my Tarot 450 with the orange rx, about 35 flights on it, no complain!

Is anyone using one of these motor mounts?
It's supposed to allow for better adjustment of the gear mesh.

Every thing is fine except the head, servos, and blades. That is what happends when a cheap fbl gyro stops increasing the pitch and the head to continues speeding up. Nothing like going down in some tall grass full speed for no reason. It will sit because I have my 250 and two 500's to fly around.
