Ordered on Labor Day weekend, got it following Monday. Thanks Helidirect.! Kit was as expected, great quality, part fitment on par.
Nice heli and packed well. Everything was in perfect condition upon arrival. This is my 1st XLpower 550 kit as I am a SAB Goblin guy, but I heard good things about it. The manual could be better laid out and be nice if it was like my manual for 570 sport. So looking forward to my build when I gather the rest of my stuff. HeliDirect shipped it out quick and they my go to place for my needs. 👍🏼
This is a very good heli for the money. Directions could be better but they get the job done. I set mine up for my 6s 5k pulse packs and could not be happier. What a joy to fly.
Great Build, the parts came together with no issues. First maiden was amazing. A little tuning and bam she flies like a dream. I am so happy with this XL POWER 550. STOKED to have this one in my fleet.
Kit was well designed and fairly easy to assemble. If this is your first heli build, you will have a bad time, the manual leaves a lot to be desired and at times is very difficult to follow. If you have built several machines and know what you're doing, it will not be a problem. Fit and finish are good.
Flies very nicely with an ikon2 fbl controller.
And as always, Helidirect packaged and shipped the order in record time, everything arrived quickly and undamaged.
Almost completed the build. The kit comes packaged nicely with all the bags labeled. Came with a black and yellow tail boom. Nice overall presentation. The online manual is okay/average, not great for a beginner - Oxy has a better manual. Components are nice and well made. Most of the bolts were oily. The tail boom is a bit of a pain to get on, as it doesn’t slide in very easily and gear box is a pain to get on too, used the yellow painted boom. The tail boom belt action isn’t as smooth as my logo. Looking forward to flying this heli. For the price the heli is good, but not sure if I would buy it again. If you can afford it, I would probably go with an Oxy 5 or Logo 550.
I ordered an XL Power 550 on Christmas Eve and the order was processed and shipped on the same day! I received my order on December 30th! Thanks for quick fulfillment of my order!
Great build quality and a well designed heli that looks awesome!
