  3. RE: different pinions, how do they effect flight times?

    I didn't think about the heat, I can deal with losing a minute or two of time, but don't want to lose much more.... besides that, my other heli's don't even get warm really (batteries or motors)...
  4. different pinions, how do they effect flight times?

    I'm building my t-rex, they recommend a 12 tooth for sport flying, or 13 tooth for hard 3D... I'm not a 3D pilot so a 12 would work just fine, I get nice long flying times in everything else, and...

    RE: XL vs SE

    yeah, I think if you are going to upgrade to an SE, start with an SA... it'll be a cheaper route...

    lipo's in paralell?

    ok, I'm a heli guy, and very electrically impaired.

    with that said, I got an e-flite pitts bi-plane that requires an 11.1 4200mah lipo pack to power it... my question is, can I wire the packs I...

    RE: Helimax 400 3d

    in my opinion, go with a 450 sized heli.

    I tried the axe CP and blade CP, I think both have been re-incarnated into their respective 400 classes. I found it was a handful to fly, the wind...

    RE: AXE CPv3

    Urrthling,

    changing bearings?

    how often do you change the bearings out in your heli? (450 sized) what are some of the indications that they need to be changed out?

    thanks!
