Nice pics, thanks. I have only the marked arms in my box, never have seen your huge arms.
What about the marked arms, are they equal in lenght ?- it seems so.

I used those first(with the stock pushrods)and they just didn't seem to have enough throw(not as much as i would like) They're only a hair larger than the stock ones, but they did Increase the performance.

Alright! I ordered the "3D" servo arm set for HS55 servos.. I think this will do:

I'm liking it more and more every time I fly it. I put the EFL1935 and GWS prop on and she screams pretty good. Nice vertical! I like how it has some weight to it and you can toss it through the air, yet slows down nice too.

Flew mine with gen ace 25-45c 2s 450's today. Swinging a apc 8x3.8sf prop(crazy torque rolls!).

I'm not running a spinner,so it was a hair tail heavy, with the pack all the way forward, but it was still great! Perfect setup for indoor! I flew all four packs, for a solid 5min each, and the motor temps were fine. After I relocate the esc, it should be perfect. The power is a bit more scale.. Reminds me of a first generation 42 inch slick with the 72 g motor.. that kind of power

I also picked up four nano tech 380 3s 25-45c, that ill run outdoors.. The Genace 450's just seem a hair heavy for 3D(to me),but they are perfect for precision!

The new long throws rock!

Does it still have 1:1 thrust on 2S?

Couldn't tell you? my wattmeter isn't set up for that small of a plane. You need to be conscious of your full burst, it will only go vertical for a 100 feet and then it runs out of steam but you can hover it for a good 20 seconds and still Pulls out fine. Reminds me of the early days of 3D.

Perfect for indoor. I even had a 5 mile an hour breeze today and it wasn't an issue on 2s.

Seriously?

After having gotten burned by the little linear UMX servos taking NO travel beyond 100%, I already snuck 115% into RUD and ELE on my Green Machine, but sure could use a tiny bit more! That would be so cool if it is actually their recommended setup.

With a futaba, I've had the throws at 140! I dialed it back, For the final set up, but the servos didn't make any funny noises, and they worked just fine. Those linear servos are much more temperamental Then these digital servos.

Well its what is available to download off the HH site so not sure why it would be set that way if qq wasn't flying it that way. The setup looks pretty personal so I wouldn't be surprised if that's the promo video setup.

Could someone transcribe that HH DX8 setup so I can enter it manually in my DX7s. My batteries are supposed to be here tomorrow afternoon. Would be nice to have the Transmitter all setup when they do arrive. Or is this a request that has already been asked and fulfilled further back in the thread?
