Finally, I had to bite the bullet and have her repaired and installed the high perf shaft. I got her back yesterday but no luck today for an outdoor test flight. It rains and it will rain on / off for the next three days. I will report back after the test results. I now think after changing my mind of selling her, to go ahead and order the brushless components from HK.

I ordered today from HK the brushless components but I now have found out the motors are the very first ones CarlP has posted. Do you think they will do the job? The ones on his mode are backordered. CarlP et al I need your input please.

The above is a bit confusing but if they were out of the C10s, give the others I posted a shot. I ordered them because I felt they would do the job , I haven't used them because I didn't have a pinion that fit. They do come with 12T pinions but at 4200Kv that's a bit much, probably throw a blade. I wanted a 8T pinion but they were backordered. The C10s are working out well, and only time will tell how long they outlive the stocks, but so far so good.

This what I ordered:

I also ordered this:

Correct, the stock pinions will not fit this motor. Stocks are 2mm and this is 2.3mm

I guess, I have to find pinions to fit the ordered motors and much the stock ones, or order two motors when back in stock as per your mod.

Got mine back from Global today. They said there was nothing wrong but it sure flies better.
They mush have done some trimming.
I had forgotten what a fun machine it is!

I flew her before sunset today. What a difference the HP shaft makes? Really big pleasure. Wow, no blade strikesNow I am glad I did not sell her. There was no wind at all and my back yard faces a well taken care park from the city (see pic below). I timed as always the flight for seven mins and I flew her straight seven mins. Although I have a second battery I did not fly her again due to the motors temp. Very, very hot.. I think I did the right thing ordering the brushless components from HK. One more thing, these rubber grommets on the canopy are totally useless!

Nice Yard!
I flew mine quite a bit today and my buddy made a video of me hovering as well as zooming around at a pretty good clip.
Unfortunately, the vid was poor as You cant really see the heli against the trees.
If we get a good video I will certainly put one up.
