I bought mine from Hobby King. I have not flown it yet. Any tips before the maiden flight?

Ever flown an autogyro before? If not just be prepared to get on the right aileron stick during takeoff as it likes to try to roll to the left on takeoff. Here is a link to my larger auto and you can watch and see how it gets light and wants to turn over on takeoff.Chris's RC Autogyro: http://youtu.be/EIvqKgRTASI. The g2 is not quite as sensitive as my big one but you should order extra blades just in case. Also only put one screw through the blades instead of 2 where they bolt to the hub. Use toothpicks in the other hole just to keep them in place. That way if the blades hit the ground all that breaks is the toothpicks and have some spares on hand.

I found a web site that has upgrade parts for the G-2. They sell a flex plate upgrade that uses one bolt attachment like you mentioned and supposed better aerodynamics. Here's the link: http://www.micro-flight.com/Durafly%...20Upgrades.htm Thanks for the tips.
