Well, I do care I will receive my 250 next Monday or Tuesday but, will only be allowed to really unwrap it at Christmas

I will watch all your video until then

Thanks

I think the threads in this forum just get buried really fast, but that speaks to the popularity of these little birds, which I can't really complain about - hopefully it will make them cheaper

I'll post the gyro setup video later tonight, whenever youtube finishes processing it, and when Vimeo gives me more upload space, I'll put the last two over there for better quality.

So im hearing different stories with the tail issues on this bird. Is there a tail issue? Or is there not a tail issue? I want to get this bird but im holding off untill i actually see some vid footage of this bird flown by the average guy. So far....it looks like tail issues to me. Am i wrong?

Yup, there is a problem with the tail. I haven't tried it yet, but Align has a new hub/bearing that supposedly fixes the problem. 2 actually...

new:

and newer:
http://www.rchover.com/inc/sdetail/156900

Newer kits should have one of the fixed tail already, but for older kits, people can contact their Align distributor and get it for free.

The Super Combo gyro/tail servo seems to be mediocre at best from what I hear, so it probably adds to the problem.
