Ordered new pinions for even higher HS. Don't know if its a bad idea to move closer to 3250 rpm from 3050 while still being a relative noob, but my tail is annoying me and I'm curious how the motor will react to it.

what I did


What I did was to install a Black King tail onto my blade 400. The Black King is an all metal, high end tail, slider, and grips package. Heli flys like a dream.

Blade Flyer
I tied my two helis to the metal table on my patio one at a time so I could check the blade tracking. The table has lots of holes in it to tie the string through. I tied to the heli frame and not just to the skids (don't trust those little skid mounting screws). Used a red dry erase marker on one blade. Sure worked nice. One heli was perfect and the other needed 1/2 turn on one link.

I use a marker to for blade tracking ! I just looked at mine today its blowing 35mph out and raining so no flying for me. I did put new Thunder Power blades on yesterday and flew them around a little (it was only blowing 20mph yesterday and I was doing that inbetween the rain storms) Today was just toooooo windy and gusty for me

I installed my castle-link quick connect and replaced the gears on one of my 65mg's.... Then I gave her a nice blast off with canned air and a rub down with a microfiber cloth. She's a good girl
