I haven't tried yet...I'm sure it is plenty strong now though, with sheeting and battery tray. With covering it should be even stronger.

So the plane is mostly done, just have to finish covering, and add the extras like exhaust. I have deemed that perhaps cutting a small hole in the rudder pushrod and inserting the tail wheel wire...

I was just curious if flight would be altered at all? It so happens when I changed the gear last time, and the blades, I connected it up wrong. I also had to change the servos, so was playing around...

Grip control direction

I'm curious about what the direction of control on grips does, meaning whether the grip control leads or lags. If it lags, the swash would move down to increase pitch, or on the tail the servo would...

He showed me in the sim at the shop, stating that is how he lands always, at least on the 300 size and up, simply because it lets you have a gentle landing. I really don't know what the issue is,...

It was a canopy, blade, fin combo, so my 450x is now sporting red fins...and a canopy that is now carved up to allow the servo movement.

Thanks, they were quite a bit larger, the belt would have slipped, but I adjusted it so it took a bit more force to move the belt on itself. Guess the issue was just too large of blades. At least the...

Too big of tail blades

So I fixed up the 450x, installing new tail blades that are a tad larger. I set everything up perfectly and idled up at 60% throttle, checking centering of tail. Then I gave it some throttle to make...

I found the comments interesting myself, people worried about privacy. People now are so vulnerable with networking sites, yet look at a quad flying about as a major threat.

The pins appear stationary on mine. Seems like it is more secure that way if the pins on the other style fall out from shipment.
