People complain for some reason about 3dhs customer service but its some of the best for me. I have ALWAYS been well taken care of by 3dhs.

Steven, what's the motor in this Edge?

I was also going to post as I just got back a hs 225 mg from them where replaced the motor and amp for no charge.

I will have no issue continuing to buy hitec. Talk about customer service!

How do you get it to d some many rotations on a crankshaft? I couldn't get mine to do that many.

Also, how do you do the move at 0:50?

Well, I recently had a not so good experience with hitec cs. So, I sent in the 225mg that crashed my edge and a 65mg that failed in the same box and filled out separate forms for each of them and put them in the box. Well, I just got the box back and when I opened it, only the 225mg was in there. So, I emailed hitec and told them my situation and the guy said that they didn't receive a 65mg with the 225mg. He said it wasn't in the box. So then I asked if he had the paperwork and he said that they save all the paperwork and there wasn't any paperwork for my 65mg. I asked if they could send me a servo and he said no. So now I'm out a 65mg. Did anybody else experience something like this?

Since all this talk of CS. Kyle at aero model really hooked it up. Sent in a well used A50-16L that was getting hot. It was going to be updated to the latest revision. I got a shipping notice 24 hr after they received the motor and got a NIB a50. Not bad.
