Front yard flying. I have not taken the time to fix the issues with the tail because it hasn't really bothered me much...Noob moves so don't laugh.

I would say that was some really smooth flying. Looks like you're no noob. Those are some very advanced moves.

Thanks. I don't know what I am more excited about this year, the fact that I can actually flip my helis or I get to install my sprinkler system this year and finish my yard.....

Diffidently more excited about the 130X!!!

No, that will always be necessary, unless a frame is designed with a ridiculously low bottom tray.

Man this heli is awesome when it works. I had a bad crash, and saw smoke comming from what I thought was the main board. Quickly unplugged the battery, checked the wires, all looked good. Noticed a loose wire (cold solder joint) on my right servo. Soldered it and plugged the batt back in. Still smoke this time comming from the main motor area (???) Quickly unplugged the batt again. Spent several minutes under a lamp and discovered the front servo had some wire melt onto the frame.

So how do I go about getting the front servo out?

You have to separate the frame halves. Does your umbrella gear rub up against your elevator servo? If so, now is the time to file it down.

Thanks for your feedback. No It doesn't rub. I have checked it several times

Just got my 130x and the torque tube tail gear was warped from molding. The new gear in the bag was also warped. I sent a video to Horizon Hobby and they are sending me new ones plus I ordered two more sets. I'm going to guess the new ones will be just as bad. The Blade optional metal tail gears aren't supposed to be out until May '13. I wonder what the eBay gears are...

Curious to see, could you post your video of the warped "C" gear...
