RE: Government (temporarily) shuts down model flying in Atlanta

Those warnings are issued to give the government the legal right to give you a boatload of crap, if they are inclined to do so. It doesn't mean they are going to go after everyone flying a foamy or...

Motor upgrade?

My only complaint with my Quark after nearly a year is it lacks climb-out power. Is there a brushless motor I can upgrade to that will work with the control module?

RE: SRB Quark battery adapter

I use Rhino 460s and 610s in my Quark. However, I have sold out of adapters. Thanks to everyone who purchased them.

RE: Question about the E-Flite blade MCX...

2.4ghz systems bind to discrete subchannels and switch at very rapid intervals. Even if it were possible that more than one heli got on the same sub channel, it would only be there for a fraction of...

SRB Quark battery adapter

I have adapters that allow you to use aftermarket batteries with a JST connector in your Quark. They are $5 for one and $9 for two, shipped CONUS; $6 and $11 shipped anywhere else in the world. I've...

RE: From Coaxial to Fixed & Collective

1. When it comes to sims, you get what you pay for. If you think Clearview or a free sim are adequate for you to learn, that's entirely your choice. Just don't try any 3D with them.
2. Don't mix...

RE: first helicoptor

Exceed helis are rebadged old Walkera models. Parts can be a big issue. What type of experience do you have and are you aware of what the definition of a mini is? I ask because the Eagle 50 is a...

RE: Pitch gauge for the Quark?

There's a paper pitch gauge you can download and print out. http://www.grnbrg.org/pitch_gauge/

Using a regular pitch gauge on a Quark can be difficult since they usually weigh more than than...

RE: Co axial

I also have a Quark and it's the greatest. I know somebody selling a used one in the UK. Otherwise, they can be pretty expensive to ship.

RE: Recommandation for heli for beginner

The best heli that fits your requirements for indoor and outdoor and durability is the Hirobo SRB Quark; assuming you don't have a lot of experience.

If you are a beginner, an E-Sky Lama V4,...

RE: CP Heli?

Try a Belt CP. You can just buy the basic model and do some upgrades as needed.If you are going to go to a CP heli, belt drive is much better than a motor driven tail.

RE: HK 450 vs. Flasher 450

There is no difference other than quality of components used. Trex clones are all made by the same company, in different grades for different vendors. HK uses the cheapest grade; from everything I've...

RE: 450 class RTF - requires least upgrade?

I'd say the Blade 400;  though it will require servos and a better gyro, eventually.

Didn't mean to be appearing to recommend it, justpointing it out as an option because of the price and previous mention of Trex clones. I don't owna Swift 16, but my nephewdoes and I've flown it a...

RE: Control With A Joystick??

I saw a topic where somebody is using their IPod to control a heli, so anything is possible.

RE: which would be better?

I think the mini titan is better than a B400. It's head design and adjustability is superior. A Trex V2 or Trex Shaftdrive is better than the clones or B400. But, the B400 is a good choice for a...

RE: which would be better?

They both requireupgrades; inferior servos and gyros won't last. They both have parts compatibility with Trex 450, which may or may not be a good thing. I've seen some B400 parts that are cheaper...

RE: Outdoor Co-Axial

I have owned (or still own) the Walkera 5#6, E-Sky Lama V4, Helimax Axe CX, Walkera 53(big coax) and Walkera 38(Trex 450 size tandem coax). Of all of these, the one that handles the best outside in a...

RE: Outdoor Co-Axial

The opposite is true. A stock coax has no ability to handle wind because the upper rotor cancels the movement authority created by the lower rotor. Abigger coax just presentsa bigger profile for the...

RE: Hirobo Quark Blade Repair

You still have to balance them. But, since they usually break in about the same place on both blades, that isn't real hard to do. If you add too much weight to a Quark, you can always add a couple...

RE: blade-400 or a t-rex450??????????

The Blade 400 is a decent heli that will require some upgrades (gyro, servos) in the long run. I've built a couple of the 450 Trex clones. For someone who hasn't flown a 450 size heli, I'd go with...

RE: Hirobo Quark Blade Repair

Just use 5 minute epoxy. Apply it liberally. You don't need anything else. You can epoxy the same blades back together 3 - 4 times before they get to ratty to use. I've triedthe laminating method...

RE: smart choice?

First of all, Axe CP electronics are the pits. I can't tell you how many receivers and E-boards I've replaced. I wouldn't buy another one at any price. Secondly, is this too big jump for you? Yes it...
