Get a nib Blade 300 heli and pull the gyro from it and install yours in its place.

The little 300 is available online for *much*...

RE: problem with a blade 500

Sounds like a gyro problem. Friend had an early BX 7200 that flew well two times. On the third flight gyro went nuts, he did some fast dancing for twenty seconds or so.

RE: I have stopped using Align Gyros & FBL 3G

What version firmware is/was in your fbl gyro? Have heard some ugly things about V1.0 and V1.0. Also, V2 and 2.1 didn't seem to be much better.

Yours sounds like a V1, V2 issue.

I am...

RE: Balancing a 2S pack ?

Like Barracuda hockey sez, It will take forever", maybe even longer. And be sure to stop the discharge somewhere around 3.2 or so volts.

RE: 450 PRO DFC vs PRO V2

Hi Solman.
Thanks for clearing that up. That was what I had been told, that source was wrong.
Think I'll hang in there with *old school* fb head for a while.

RE: 450 PRO DFC vs PRO V2

Pro 2 DFC does not use a swash plate driver.

RE: I pulled the trigger on TREX 450 PRO

RE: I pulled the trigger on TREX 450 PRO

I have owned both dx-7 and the dx-8.

The 7 has BB on one axis of the gimbals, the 8 on both x/y axis. Plus it has other nice features too. Like the 4000 (!) Mah battery option and program, card.

RE: Which electric heli????

My suggestion is a T-Rex 500. Big enough to grow in to, not too large to be flown in confined spaces. A thought about the small and tiny heli's: they are twitch n fight, boredom sets in quickly...

Look for the HK big block connector holder to help you with soldering on the Deans "T" connectors. They are the defacto standard in electric flight.
