i tighted up the tail boom and added an extra tailboom support to clinch in the tail for some extra insurance. seemed to be holding tight now. also added some thread locker.

cracked the landing gear already on rough landings. luckily i have a replacement in stock:

Ive flown my gt pro belt 4 times now, on a 12t pinion. Something I immediately noticed compared to the V2 was that it is way quieter! It has a really nice sound to it when hovering.

An easy and sure fix for slipping belts is to take an old metal tail boom servo clamp and cut off the extension where the servo mounts. Put it on the tail boom next to the frame. When the belt is tight, slide the clamp snug up to the back of the tail boom mount and tighten. The boom cannot slide back into the tail boom mount. Works great.

Also, I would replace any of the plastic belt sprockets with align metal sprockets. The plastic ones will break eventually. Does the HK 450 Pro come with plastic or metal belt sprockets?

It comes with plastic that are half decent. TT will be installed in this heli at some point.

Im running these servos:
