Default Falcon 40+Super Skids please help

I have a Falcon 40 and was wondering if the super skidds with the boom supports and fins are worth putting on this heli there only 25 bucks. Mine seems a little tail heavy already and I was worried about being able to balance it correctly and also is there a lipo battery you can put in this heli.

By all means, install the super skids. They also have a super pack LiPo. 1300mha 7.4v with, I think 25c rating. That is the exact setup that I am flying. Can be ordered from us hobby supply. Make sure you get the LiPo charger, the stock NiMH charger WILL NOT WORK. CAN CAUSE FIRE/EXPLOSION IF TRIED. Get the ss and LiPo, you'll never look back.

Safe Flying

I have a triton jr charger I use for some of my planes and my AxeCP. I just bought this heli cause a friend needed some money and it cam with a bunch of spare parts for only $30 bucks woohoo. I can fly my Axe pretty good if I just take it easy on the collective. I am going to use this heli for a warm up. The stock batteries are 8.4v will going to 7.4v not decrease the power much. Also will 1300mAh be too big. Is this the battery you are talking about.

That's the one. Will run the F40 just great. The super skids have a different batt. holder, and will allow you to slide the batt. way forward to get the correct cog.

BTW if you want to sell it pm me.

Are you using the stock motor with the lipo. If not what are you using.

Your Falcon will fly just fine with the stock motor and LiPo. However, you can expect the oem motor to crap out . When this happens, get the slo-max 300 from tower hobbies. Also tail motors will go pretty soon also. Search the F40 forum, there are several suggestions on there about tail motor options.

If you want tht most awesome falcon 40 on earth follow these directions to the letter -don't try anything else with this you have to do exactly as its described -then get a metal head at east coast hobby supply -if you don't want to do it there is a great xtreme motor at ushobby supply -when you install the super skids and heat sinks and fuses you'll have lift issues -do this...
