Fast and easy build. But need work on tail BOOM design.
Nice build. Tail boom connection to frame is a bad design. First flight my tail BOOM had warn so bad that it became unstable and I had to set it down. There was so much play in tail it was Unfliable. I bought new tail BOOM and hot glued it to frame. Now the heli is solid. Customer service was no help after sending them video of issues.
Awesome heli and fantastic kit. Great price and it shipped fast
Very nice kit
The quality of this Heli is worth every bit the price. This is my first CP Heli after flying a Blade 200 SRX for 5 years. After assembly, I realized I forgot to program the ESC but couldn't access the plug. I had to tear the Heli down to add an extension. This big "oops" took less than an hour. On first tests, I had belt vibration around mid-throttle where the belt would rub the inside of tail. Loosening the tension of the belt fixed the problem. The design of this Heli makes major fixes easy. My landing gear splintered at the mounting points and HeliDirect customer service was great for replacing them for me. On my second flight, I flipped the wrong switch and accidentally put the Heli into throttle hold vs flight mode 1 (facepalm). The Heli dropped from 20 feet onto pavement (see video). The only damage was a bent tail pushrod and a nick in one blade. This kit is a beast! I paired the kit with the iKon 2 Mini and TBS Crossfire Nano Rx. For my first maiden, I flew it with a Jumper T12 Pro, and am now switching the model over to my Jumper T16.
Simply Brilliant…. Gotta love SAB designs. Got this as a yard beater.
Parts quality, building experience, and assembly instructions are all top-notch. Some of the small parts were challenging to handle, but with the right tools this was not problematic. The hardest part was keeping thread lock out of the grip bearings on the tail. I have mine paired with an Ikon2 Bluetooth FBL (fits with no problems), and with the throttle limited to 60% in my throttle curves it's a tame platform for a beginner like me to learn the basics on in my backyard. There is lots of room to grow with this heli. I fly it with Pulse 1250 mAh Lipos and can easily get 6 minute flight times and have 23 volts left, so the flight times can certainly be increased. Highly recommend for a beginner who may be intimidated by the larger helis or limited on space to fly! I already want another SAB heli! A+ for this model.
