woot got it in today and my new 9958 which i've been flying all day out in the bay at the firestation until i just broke the stupid flybar there's a powercord that hangs down in the middle of the bay and i ziptied it up so it made a hoop i was practicing flying through then one of the heaters kicked on unexpectedly and blew my little bird off course and made it hit the loop and then down to the ground

new parts ordered can't wait to get home and fire up the 450

Awesome, only thing im short is one female deans connector, hobby shop only had one left but he's getting some more in tommorow

2650 batteries are flipping awesome really extend the run time maybe almost to 10 minutes
didn't really time it

9958 takes the same flybar as a msr blade so thats fixed and it glows in the dark too

loctite .... funny thing everything i have read states they don't come loctite'd mine did every screw that goes into metal thought that was kind of strange...

i was hovering about 2 foot off the ground, by the end of the day but still over-correcting a lot so i spent most of the day just walking scooting it up and down the street we had a good breeze here today so i had to be really careful finally retired back to the garage and just hovered in the middle of the garage i probably went through 20 charges between the stock 2200 and the one 2560 i had a deans connector for

all in all good day

I well have to take a look at the 2560 there is a hobby shop in Alerado that stock a Huge assortment of batteries "think he orders by the ton " very cheap.
last time I was there he had 50 Voltz 2200 3s 25c for 19.99 with dean conectors.

I use this one it is a Clone but for the 3s batteries it works great
http://www.ebay.com/itm/390374581418...84.m1439.l2649
It needs a converter for the deans connector is only problem I found so far.
They say it tends to over heat on larger batteries so When i go to 6s on my HK600 I well need to mod it with a fan.
