I replaced the Roban gyro by a Kbar because I was not able to enter the settings menu of the gyro... With the tarot ZYX S2 Bluetooth module, the gyro never appeared connected.

Here are the first attempts with the new gyro:

Anyone knows where I can find spare parts for the Roban 470 size? Just in case...
The dealers I have contacted here in France carry the bigger sizes only.

RC Aerodyne here in the US carries spare parts, but quite a few are out of stock. That may mean that they are discontinued.

Last time I needed parts I had to contact Roban directly. RC Aerodyne was no longer stocking parts for the 470s.

Chinese New Year is probably the main source for the delay. Hopefully they get a response to you soon.

Still tuning the Kbar and rotorhead:

Roban Bell 407 Kbar tuning (4 min 3 sec)


Kbar current settings:

Main rotor:
Style: 80
Agility: 76
Gyro gain: 60

Tail rotor:
Yaw rate: 60
Gyro gain: 60

Still no answer from Roban about dealers and spare parts ...
However MotionRc customer service told me that if Roban sell them, they will have them!

First forward flights with the Bell 407:

Roban Bell 407 forward flight (8 min 1 sec)


Gain on the tail will have to be reduced.
I finally had an answer this week from Roban telling me my email was found in their spam

It's a good looking Huey. I still have the EXI 500 but it's belt driven. Is the angle gearbox from PKM? Belt or TT?

Thanks, I am using the Roban angle gearbox for TT. Don't know if there's still any 500 belt raised tails out there.

This Funkey AS350 for $176 plus shipping was a good deal. Using Century Swift NX stretched to 600 and Roban head. Almost done; may add pilot seats. Instrument panel is in.
