I installed an XMSeller G401B hh gyro because I wanted to test it out for budget-minded people (who is not?). Surprise surprise! I like this gyro. Read my review to find out how much

I flew the heli at the field first time. The boys were impressed by the heli. All amazed at how much punch is available with the 430L motor. My electronics were all spot on. Fusonic digital servos were quick and very accurate. Tail was very good with GY401-like hold. Distinguishable from the Spartan hold but nonetheless enjoyable. I really like the overall setup.

well thats good to hear Gino, carried on with my build.... faults if any so far would be cutting out the bottom of the canopy, not really a big deal but still needs doing, also even though I love the ball links with the hex hole, make the threads at least 2mm longer! they are very hard to fit a locknut on the back of a servo arm, hs65hb for me

No need for nuts. Just make a tap using a spare screw. Then tap threads into the servo arm. Mine are screwed in tight. I did the same thing with my SE and the balls and arms are a year old.

I also didn't use a nut on the servo arms - I bored out the hole using an allen key slightly smaller than the thread, then screwed in the ball using a lot of weight on it to get it to bite, it was a very tight fit they aren't coming out unless I unscrew them..

This is the tap I made using a 1.5 hex screw. I cut two edges using a Dremel cutting wheel. Then I tapered the tip to help drive it. Using locking pliers, making threads is easy on the servo horns. Driving the balls is easy too but it has very good grip.

You have a great learning curve!! I still remember your first videos of just hovering. Or maybe I just need a lot more stick time . Probably a little of both.

I did this Gino when I installed the balls, undersized them so they cut a thread but I just like the security of a nut

A drop of CA on the threads will also help.

Flew the SE for a change. Boy, what a difference. The BA pop wasn't there. It's surprising because the SE had the stronger AKE 480R motor. The cyclic was a bit delayed. Plus the noise was relatively unbearable LOL. The tail was slower compared to the BA. But that could just be setup. I don't know. But my SE is really efficient averaging 1100mah compared to 1600mah for the Black Angel on a CopterX 430L motor (old one).

Pirouetting flip master
1100 and 1600 over how many minutes?
roughly 40% longer flight time on the SE?

5 min for both. I can't say longer (or shorter) since I have two different setups with different motors and pinion. I have yet to swap motors and confirm efficiency.

At the moment, based on my experience with the 430L on the SE, I can say there is more punch now on the BA. It's practically bog free. This puzzles me because the same motor was bogging like crazy on the SE.
