I started my heli education on RR. I also bought and dealt a few helicopters to some heli attics. =)

I have about 150-200 flights on this bird that I absolutely recommend for anyone into helis.

Dozens of crashes with 0 damage

Bought this off here and added 50 cents to the horizontal fin too balance out my battery weight.

Planning on moving tail servo back but had to test it out.

Bought this to see one up close and put it in the air. I bought it off ebay and recieved it in 10 days( from China)

The X360 kit includes 370mm CF blades

Overall impression:
*Packages put together nicely. Made for faster build.
* Manual would have made it faster. (Hate looking at computer screens to long) < that stinks.
*Fiberglass canopy< beautiful lightweight canopy ( Blue is on the way)
*Ugly orange plastic blades < Really???
*CF main blades look to be nice.

Parts fit:
*Parts seem to fit well.
(*!*You do need a set of snap ring pliers and a good set of Allen key tools.
* Soft screws. (normal like align hardware)
*Carbon Fiber frames are nice
* Kit took about 3 hours to build. It took me a but longer but I couldn't fine my good set of Allen keys.


I'm going to finish a few things tomorrow. Glue up the boom supports, check battery size, updates to come. Electronics to arrive in a few days.

Anyone fly these or plan on ordering the kit. Imput? Thoughts?

Happy flying.

I got this off Ebay for cheap. Bought 3 new servos and added a Futaba GY240 and kds tail servo.
It needed a few parts but I've stocked up.

Video is a crash this morning. NO DAMAGE The motor did shift forward away from the main gear. (30 sec fix) I edited out the bad language.

What's messed up is I crashed it yesterday when I lost it in the sun.=/( seesaw/flybar and 1 blade damaged only)

Picture is after the crash.

This kit started as a HK 500GT, but due to some faulty parts upon building it. But now had Align 500 frame,wish, mixer arms. Had a mishap with the tail belt(?) It broke so I added an EXI500 tail boom(same as the gt500 tail)

Turnigy typhoon 1900kv motor
YEP 80 amo esc
Spektrum H5010 MG on cyclics
Futaba 401/9254
AR610 2.4ghz with satellite
FLOUREON 3s 2800 30c lipo X2
Jazz 425 CF blade (GOODNCHEAP)/KDBB tail blades
I got 7+ min of flight time on a nice sport flight.

7 min of flight for 31.99 a set of batteries is a great flight time from the 3-4 min I was getting.

Flybared helis fly so nicely. It's a shame to see them fade away.

Got in two batteries with the 200srx before I planted a hard landing trying to avoid a tree.
200srx is super floaty. Adjustments must be made.

These may go on the chopping block.

It's all good....he has a twin.

Today I went to the post office to ship a Blade cx in the factory box. Well to ship it 1600 miles is $37.52 :-0

She called it the Ballon Rate because of length and height of package.
22.5" x7.5"x 9.5"
weight 3.75lbs

BALLON RATE= =-/

Been out of the hobby for a few years buying and selling and wow. Shipping is crazy.

More of a rant.

That was a $200 cash prize, $500 for her school library (books she gets to pick out) and an ALL expenses trip to D.C. to compete at nationals for $20,000 to the 1st place contestants and $10,000 for her school library.

Crazy proud father. She is also skilled in the proper uses of .22, 9mm, 45, Remington 870, throwing knives, tomahawk, bow and arrow, crossbow, hand knife fighting, wrestling and can make Greek chicken like a pro.

Love my baby girl.
