I think that once I get the training gear off and can fly at less than 275 grams it will perform great.
You should get the training gear off as soon as possible. It hovers alot easier without it and for me it was the difference between 1 minute and a full pack.

I will try and trim the tail RPM better while on the ground. I will also try and make some kind of turntable setup so i can adjust at hover point. Is GWS still planning on selling a setup jig like the one you showed us?
By all means.

The set up jig will continiously. But I must make her very nice as perfect as possible, otherwise some peoples will have another reason to attack me again!

You are right!

EM150 version can fly with 1050mAh for 10~12 minites, very light weight. Or 1300mAh for 13~15 minites.

How are you guys attaching your servos to the frame? I was using double sided tape that came with the kit... but after my last rebuild i noticed the servos would wiggle ALOT.

I then tried some hot glue... One of the servos popped off while i was doing some 'trimming' flights .

So... Whats the recommended way to secure those servos?

Must use a good quality double side tape such like 3M or Japanese good one.

Do not use a bad unknown quality one!

Check this out

Went out to a freinds house to deliver a slow stick and pic up his heli to sell. Did a quick demo with mine in the barn and front yard on the same flight and now he's sticking it out. Jarhead

I kept flying so many times GWS Dragonfly EM150 and EM300H with PHA-01or PHA-300.

So far I can't find the problems like I had read the posts here. But I will continiously try to find out what going on?

Here is the tip of the day for mounting GWS servos or any servo to the Dragonfly helicopter frame.

Cut a piece of strapping tape out so you can wrap it all the way around the base of the servo and make the seam on the outerside.

Now stick the a piece of Scotch-Double sidded foam tape or the GWS tape that is in the kit on the the side of the servo, tape sticks better to tape then it does the servo then press in place on the frame of the dragonfly.

Will hold rock sold also make cleaning tape of your servo later alot better just remove the packing tape!

I getting ready to add a tips and tricks section to my website and this will be one of them for sure.

I use contact cement (eg Shoogoo or similar) because when it lets go, it does so partially, so handling gets a bit squirelly, but you don't lose control, and you can then redo it. Lots of people suggest that there is too much flx in double-sided tape, whereas contact cement holds the servo really tightly.
