Hey Tony. Are the 600ma batteries you are refering to the same physical size as the 400ma's? Where did you get them? You haven't happened to have flown the dex blades that John is selling for a comparison?
Thanks

The bats are bigger. You can get them here-> http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s..._single_cell__ . I NEVER use the stock bat anymore. I have used the dex blades and ordered alot of them. This is my take however I am far from an expert.
If you crash alot, use the dex blades as they are the cheapest. I use them mostly in my shop wher I fly through doorways so I crash more. Outside, I like the woodies the best. I cannot get any of the blades to track like the woodies. I have a quark so I use that blade balancer. The woodies seem to give you the most lift. I am not sure about 3D though. I have a 4G3 with Marios skids and bat plate on a 4G3 with the factory skids and a homeade CF bat tray. The bat fits perfect in either heli. John also sells a 500Mah that will fit in the factory bat tray. One last thing, the dex blades will make the heli the least stable but the most menuverable. If you are a sport flyer, the Dex blades may be best.

The DIP 10 problem seems to have a workaround here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...postcount=1352
Beside: Where do you find M1.4 and M1 screws in Switzerland? A asked everywhere and anything below M2 is hard to find and below 1.4 it's not exitsting at all.
PS: I huse a lot of this alluminium tape too.... Jumbo?
DIP,I use to do the mod on your link but nothing beter...

I get my screw from strasbourg/france http://www.letrainmagique.com/ but he only sell in europe...have everything....make an order is hard and old school style

PS:not Jumbo ....

*****
I try the 360mah Rhino 2P(transformed from 2s)from HU ,I get 11' long power with stock motor/blade...(no canopy,1 lipo in case ,other under 4in1=perfect CG)(450 zippy work well too)

I m wayting for the 600mah 20c Zippy....

You can get the dex blades here-> http://www.rchobbyhelicopter.com/sto...ity%203DX%20V2

Just timed my flight in my shop using the 600Mah 20c and wood blades and I still get 13 minutes. The only thing I noticed is that with the wood blades, the trim is all the way to the right as my tail is working harder to keep up with the mains. I never stripped the covering off a set of blades. Anyone recommend this to lose some weight. Gonna time a pack with the dex blades to see if it is the same or more.

Yes but do they atually have them in - some E-Bay vendors claim they have stocks they dont have - then you wait weeks for them while they hold your money so you cannot go else where.

I ran a pack at my shop using the 600Mah and dex blades. I got 15 minutes flight time. I know the dex blades are 2g lighter so I assume it works the motor less resulting in longer flight times. I know 15 mins straight will burn out the motor, so I flew 7 mins w/10 min cool down and then 8 mins. I can video it but would be boring as I go through my 5,000 sq foot shop like a maze. High ceilings throughout so it is not boring for me yet. I need to know if anyone can tell me what size the tail bearings are. I want to try to get them locally but need size.

Hello all

The tail motor was changed into the brushless.
It took time by the time this fixation method was hit on.
However, this was able to be fixed beautifully only by processing parts of
default a little.
I become glad and am writing these sentences.
Concretely, the hole of the tail rotor shaft is expanded and the motor is
installed there.
The amplifier uses the one that is lighter than one gram.
It converts it from PWM into the servo signal by using PIC IC.
The airframe shook first right and left and cruelly.
It was possible to deal with this by sensitivity setting (V1) of DIP12.
Everybody who is here is not surprised in remodeling this level.
I am always surprised by everyone here.

Good-bye. (・ω・`)/~

Cheers, JohnW
I am confused. You already said the brushles 4#3b will be ready to order at the end of this month. Now you are stating that the 4G3 brushless might be out first. Sounds like the 4#3b brushless will not be available at the end of this month. This is the same rep who told you your 2801 would be on your existing order and now tells you they will be on the next order. Maybe there is a language barrier. I would sure like to know actual release dates and not his speculation.

Don't buy it and wait walkera original upgrade. I have it and it's not good at all... only mixing arma can be used but the swash plate is really bad.
