Yes it is bad, that's why I decided to buy another servo. I'll never buy one of these again.

hey guys, i'm looking to get rid of my 500 size half clone/align heli in favor of a cheaper 450/250 size heli. copterx gets relatively good reviews for clones, and what's really nice is they put together an electronics pack to get started with, i know i'll end up replacing the servos but which model would you all recommend? the black angel as i've read here and else where is super high quality, while not being align compatible really, i haven't read any negatives about it. the v4 450 pro looks good to, exact copy of the align 450 pro which means low quality stuff can be swapped out, thats a plus, but it seems to be having more issues... and then the 250, i've read good and bad about it, i'd really like to go 250 for the price, but if everyone says bad about it then i won't. the main issue i've read about is getting the tail right on it because cheaper end gyros have a harder time with them...

i just want your opinions, i'm looking to basically build a beater, that i can go nuts with, not worry to much about crashing, and pretty much just buy a new $40 frame set if need be. doesn't need to be perfectly stable in hovers, i'm over the whole tail not being perfect thing. just needs to fly...

thanks for any help guys, i really appreciate it...

Hi

Just had a similar dilemma about a month ago between the 450 Black Angel and the 450 Pro v4, and while the supposed better quality of the Black Angel was an important factor I ended up deciding for the Pro V4 because of the parts compatibility and the parts are ok/good, I only found small issues (newbie to 450 helis, but lots of years on RC) while assembling without any manual specially on the belt driven tail that is different from everything I found on the web.

just my 2c

Got to test the CX450 PRO DFC Head. This came out with the CPX 450 PRO V5
the head is kinda okay.. it was really low.. the CG of the blades is far closer on the heli than the last FBL head.. and the original FB heads....

so far its doing okay.. but there are still things that need to be checked out...

Is it really needed to have D/R setup? it might help the learning curve if its setup standard

never saw the shafts for the HK version.. but the shaft of the DFC head are shorter than the first FBL heads that came out.. but the shafts are kinda good... not sure if the ALIGN DFC shafts are the same.. have not tested some yet...
