cheers, johnw
what are "death wobbles"?
Thank you,

Have you tryed switching to "rate" mode? Bigger tail blades (FireFox) and lower headspeed? I have noticed that wobble comes up with higher headspeed. I think Walkera gyro is sensitive to vibrations.

question, John- my admittedly limited understanding, suggests that the simpler head on 52(non-hiller?) is not good for inverts and such-and I have never seen a vid of a 52 doing more than basic hover and ff-can it be set up to 3d??? without redoing whole head??

also main drawback for me on a 52 is still the tx-it just sux!-with comp tx and bl -52 is sweet bird-but can it invert??

sigh-had so much hope for 64-c1-but since they are discontinouning both 64c and others-will have to see what they come up with next!

would love it!

which tx?

actually anything you can give me a deal on!

I know 64c needs tlc to hover right-but would love to experiment!

what do you want- first run v2 with v2 printed on damaged canopy????

they all say 4#3b now-if it didnt have its nose punched out-canopy alone is collectors item!

how about bl setup??

losi 10250,steves, and ebay esc? for partial on 64 c?

mk

pm me for negotiation!!

<--greedy but addicted

The 52# flies very well inverted. Mario is doing a frame for these for the main reason that the head is so smooth. my 64#c was horrible. this heli flies really really well right out of the box.
what about this!
walkera 52 inverted (2 min 12 sec)

just ask mario what he thinks about the 52#.
cheers, johnw

hey john.... both johns actually... how much do you want for your dust collecting 64#c? I have a Gaui EP Pro and a firefox EP 100 and i love the sub micro helis. i am still working on my brushless 4#3 and i wanted to try some other walkera helis... PM me if you are interested in selling your 64#c. If you wanted to sell just the airframe with servos and motors, that would be cool to seeing that i have a DX7 and RX and extra gyros laying around that I would want to use, so ARF would be better for me, then you could keep the TX and RX.
Thanks

There is a note on Terences website regarding the discontinued heli's. It looks like he said he has solid confirmaiton from Walkera that the 52 will be continued but the others will be discontinued. For me that is good to hear because I want to get a 52 myslef. Anyone want to get rid of their 52 to a good home?

That's so weird. Becuase I wanted to order the heli and parts and they wouldn't even give me a price because my rep said they've pulled it from production. Maybe they've changed their minds.
