For example a blade is $2.09 and you can buy one at a time if you want.
Mainshafts are $3.49 and a maingear is $1.39.
I bought a pile of stuff just in case, but haven't needed it.
Shipping was $15 and arrived in 8 days
too good to be true... if that is the real price you can build your own 300C from scratch for half the kit retail price

I object to being called a liar reverse. I suggest you live up to your name and reverse out of here.

The doors with windows fitted are $65 and I expect the rest of the custom metal work will equally cost more.

If you call me out on this I will post the invoice from GARTT with these prices on it.

Hi everyone,

I've just got one of these with the GPS and was amazed by the overall quality even though I had a really hard time setting it up as there is no user's manual and only a few youtube videos available. But in the end I managed to understand the basics of it.

However, I am still unable to fly! It keeps on cutting off while the rotor is still spinning on the ground. Impossible to lift it.

Here is what I do:
- My transmitter is in disarmed mode. I switch it on.
- I switch on the heli.
- I wait for a few seconds.
- I press the flashing red light button on the side of the tail boom.
- I move the left hand stick to the right down position.
- I move the arm switch to engage it.
- I move down the left stick to make the rotor spin.
- The rotor starts to spin and to take its revs.
- But it kills off after one or two seconds after reaching a stable regime. This regardless of the actions I put on the cyclic or on the pitch.

I contacted their customer service which answered after a big delay but their answer was totally useless. I tried several times afterwards, trying to clarify my problem, but no answer yet.

Could anybody help me? Would be greatly apreciated!

Only thing i can see wrong with above sequence is that motor start is both sticks to be moved simultaneously down and towards each other (like most quads), not sequentially. So move arm switch (was it F?) to unlock motor, and then start motor by moving sticks simultaneously. The problem you describe may be something else though, like a problematic esc or a motor overloading the esc, as you certainly get it unlocked. Why it stops just after spinning up is puzzling, and possibly a timer related issue - the only timer I can think of is the motor start up one, so perhaps changing the stick sequence will prevent a timer cutting it out. Let us know

Thanks a lot for the answer!

I tried both ways, with only one stick or simultaneously with the two and it doesnít make any difference.

This afternoon I fully recharged the battery and was able to make a 10 sec. hop but the power soon faded away and the engine cut after landing. My next attempt ended up by the engine cutting off before take off.

Seems like there is some kind of cut off linked to the battery voltage?

The Heli and the battery are new. I checked the batteryís balance and it is ok.

Strange.

Try reducing the head speed from 100 to 90% - that in itself is a challenging job. I gave some info before on how to do that in this thread, can't remember details right now as unfamiliar with radio. Unfamiliar radio is the reason why I changed my last 300c order to a pnp and fitted a Spektrum radio/sat combo. Just waiting for my new main gears to arrive before I can maiden, will video for group then

Will try, hopefully it'll work!

Their customer service is really poor... Nobody answers... And the fact that there is no user's manual is crazy, especially for such a weird/innovative setup.

Came down in high grass - need main gear


Does anyone know where I can get a main gear for my 300C, I misjudged and landed in tall grass and stripped the teeth on the main gear before I could hit throttle hold. HobbyWow web-site appears to be down or maybe itís Trumpís embargo.

I don't recall Donald ever being in the flying hobby manufacturing business ..... so probably the usual socialist issues making their website go underground.

But Amazon does have the parts listed. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DFC79YH...ing=UTF8&psc=1

Try also going straight to another supplier - Tom Lin of Gleagle Hobby Store (bought via AliExpress). AliExpress should also have the spares. See link below:

While on this heli, can please get info on setting kbar phase angle (Peter, Craig) for 3 blade main rotor. Haven't had a chance to set up properly yet, last time I flew it it was quite a handful.
