I'am flying my hornet x3d today for the" first fly test" .
After to do all preset in my livingroom. I'am going
to a large area and go for the first fly "surprise!!" the
heli fly great . I having the impression the heli is bigger
than is in reality.

I have two loops in my second fly! is simply a great great
helicopter in small small package!! only have for up hop is
Walt carbon tail blade and Walt carbon tail drive shaft my motor
is himax 2015-4100 with 11 toot gear i'am want to go for
a 12 in futur, so I'have tsunami motor in my hand ! but is for my next stage of piloting experience, Does this engine is more performant than the Himax ?? I'am you ask the question.

> two loops in my second fly!
Hey that is good going, you must have previous experience. I am yet to properly loop my X3D, after a couple of flips and a brief invert I've been distracted with friends on some foam planes. The hope was to get used to flying aircraft at a greater height so as to transfer and progress mild aerobatics onto my Hornet. Instead I am flying the planes at the nearly the same height as my heli's ;( looping and rolling too close to the dirt.

As for hop up's I recommend looking at KOK Extréme white blades distributed by Duzi. More info way down on my 'tips' page.

The Himaxx is a good little cheap motor, basically a clone Hacker with cheaper components and possibly a weaker magnet (I hear). The Twister or Axi 2208/20 or Tsunami I think are the same motor with different badges in different country's. Not absolutely sure but I think you will see a 10-20% performance improvement using this motor in combination with the very easy to use MS-116 brushless ESC. The problem with using this outrunner on the H2 frame means rearranging components for good Centre of Gravity. As you have and X3D this isn't an issue. Might have to remove a small portion of the from landing gear cross member to squeeze in on a 25T (standard configuration) or probably better for higher head speeds use the 26T if it will fit.

Hey johnnyb, nice to see you try and liven up the place with some new posts

Hey English is my only language and I'm still challenged LOL

The CC P10 ESC will work with the Tsunami but isn't the best choice of ESC. I haven't tried a P10 with mine, have read on this forum that the governor mode is NOT that compatible with the Tsunami. This may depend on firmware version.
The other point to note is that the P10 rf noise, that may cause serious glitch's and ESC shutdowns. Depends on Rx and ESC combinations. See this example thread

Yeah, Darkhorse, that canopy you have with the luminescent paint is just great looking. Really nice heli.

The Maxir's just a tad bigger, a tad heavier, so is probably more stable, but since its using the same Axi 2208 class outrunner, its not going to be as powerful in the thrust to weight department to the Hornet. Leaving the Hornet line still at the top of the heap in the micro 3D category. The little 3d Pro's supposed to be more finicky and even more prone to tail issues than the Hornet from what I've read.

Thanks, the X3D luminous scheme is starting to look a bit grubby these days after a some tweaking and fiddling with the setup. The good thing is that they are just painted white stickers, so I may freshen it up when I've can be bothered.

Now it looks even more tarty with 5 coloured LED's for extra orientation cues.
