Like my Protos 380, my new 480 is smooth and quiet. Simple clean design. Amazing design actually. Low parts count. Very low disk loading. Feels like a feather. Using 6S 2650's which balance perfectly in my setup. Very responsive. I used Goblin 380 thrust bearings in mine as as for some reason XL made the OD on each thrust bearing the same diameter. The Goblin bearings fit perfect and are done right and cost $5. Canopy is super dark but I put some vinyl decals on it. I have a high pitch squeal at high RPM... might be a bad bearing. I will find and fix I'm sure. I really like this bird. Great size. Cheap to crash. Cheap batteries, feels big.
This is a FANTASTIC helicopter! Cyclic is nice and crisp. Tail is also very strong. It is super quite and smooth mechanically. I wish the canopy fit better but not a big deal. As always, HeliDirect had it on my front porch in three days!
Awesome helicopter at a great price! Flies very light and is quiet due to the use of two belt drives. I am just beginning 3d and can’t give much information there other than what I stated above.
product as described fast delivery. waiting for the evo conversion before i build it.
