Just check your gear mesh's starting with the motor and main gear and work backwards, light weight paddle holders work well also. Other than that just check a few things over, the pin sticking out of the pitch slider needs a bit of CA to keep if from coming out. I also put a bit of CA on the swash to keep the bearing in place. You can use a MonoKoat heat gun to heat up the main gear and bend the gear out to widen the stance if you care to. Other that that just fly it.....

Sounds like a great setup Brian. That's the same setup I will be using on mine. I should have it together in a week.

Please post the throttle curve/pitch you use successfully for 3D with this setup.

From what I have read it is a good motor. You need to set you ESC for a high pole count motor. curve of "My curve for 3D is 100, 75, 65, 75, 100"
