NO, I just got back up stairs. I found what let go that broke everything. It was the align tail holder. It seemed tight, but even after changing the screws it will not tighten down. Also the boom is bent as well as the tail shaft. Good thing the kit came with two. I will get a align boom and see if that works and shave the blocks down a bit. Funny but if it was belt it would of just slipped instead the shaft drive wanted to tare everything apart.

What makes things more frustrating is trying to work on this pile after working on the sweet and perfect no fuss Align 500pro.

Spoofman and I have been trying to work out some good combos for this 250 since time began! The 250 is a mans heli.

I'm thinking of using the trueblood dampers on this hk250gt some stiff professional dampers, to fix the vibes @ 4800 HS.

Nothing wrong with those linkages as a replacement or spare part, but there are flybarless linkages included with the Tarot ZYX and 250 head combo. You'll just have to screw on the plastic ends.



(The USB programmer link is optional though.)

Yeah, it's actually already installed on my repaired CopterX 250. I'm pretty satisfied with the Tarot ZYX, but it still needs some fine-tuning flights.

No, it's not a 250 FBL TT. I'm not a huge fan of torque tubes as I'm usually landing in taller grass, something that perhaps becomes more of an issue with a smaller helicopter.

Thanks for that. I don't want to try this on my current esc, but instead order http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ontroller.html.

This "battery test connector" is on all escs and an easy enough to solder a wire to; or would I better off with a different esc for this?
