Good buy!

Just reposition your antenna wire so it doesnt run past the motor and controller like it does now.

Make sure ALL the set screws are tight and the metal to metal connection have locktight on them.

Have fun with your new toy

Also, consider the Mega 22/20/3 because it has loads of power but is still very efficient and doesnt get too warm.

Hi Carlo.

I haveŽnt got it yet, so the pic is from the guy who has it in Germany. I will have it in Sweden at the end of this week i suppose.
I will take it all apart and put it together my self. Then you know that all is correct. Now i have something to do 3D with. My Corona is still nr1, it is easy and fun, but this is going to be fun, just to do all thoose rolls and loops as a do with my raptor!

Another Eco8 owner.. awesome!

Now that I look at it closely, you really got a nice deal on that heli! Great.

I noticed the blue anodized skids. Do you know where did your friend purchase them from?? Just curious.
