Here it is. Quick pre-flight test hover to make sure its all going good. BTW, I had to mod the heck out of the head to get it to track right.

Well maybe it wasn't a problem with tracking after all. What happened was that I replaced 3 rods that connect to the swash with Align ones. When I was trying to track it, it was off by 4 degree's at center stick. All the links were to exact mesurement according to the manual except the hollowed pitch linkage rod which I could not get to the size of the manual. I had to sand down the ends of the pitch linkage rod screws s and cut down the links so I could get the pitch down to zero at center stick. Now I don't know if this could of been becasue I replaced the stock with Align causing the problem. The Align rods are thicker, thats why I replaced them.

Has anybody else had to sand down the pitch linkage screws to get tracking right?

Also, I got an extra 41T lower gear. I put this one if my Mars 480. What is the difference between this one and the stock one in performance?

And when he tells you the Mars sucks, remember how he "mod'd" it before even trying the parts that came in the kit. This guy re-engineers his heli's and then says they are not good, but leaves out the modding part when it suits his purpose. A word to the wise.

I never said Mars sucks. Heck, this is a HOT a$$$$$ heli so far. Feels more like a 500 size machine too and not even close to a 450.
The real test will come when I take it out to the field and fly it. I will say there has been some build issues that I've experienced, as I'm not gonna lie. Gazaur nor Hobby-Lobby didn't pay me or give me a free kit. I paid for it myself.

Your just pissed HeliNY becasue I say it how it is, and don't sugar coat anything, and your mad because the RC-Tek Skyshark I had was a POS, and ur a RC-Tek fan to death and can't get over it. Grow up buddy, and get a life. RC-Tek machines suck, plain and simple.
So stay on thier thread and don't troll this one or I'll start posting crap on RC-Tek thread too, and post all the bad issues me and my buddies experienced with Scott's kits. Don't start a war buddy.

Don't threaten me, you haven't got the brains to back it up. And you do NOT say how it is, you have changed opinions on helis in your reviews. You are like a kid, just because you type in red and larger fonts doesn't mean you are telling the truth. I have five heli's from all different manuracturers, one from RC-Tek. You just got mad because you didn't get free parts, we all know that. I posted what I did lest some newbie think you know what you are doing. Nice flying in the house BTW, good example for the kids, who are the only ones that might be fooled by you.....

I'm done eeeeky, don't want to mess up your thread. People can listen to you and yuyu who know what they are doing and don't change heli's every week.

Looking gooood brov!! ill bet the problem was with the align links...The hollow links need to be opened 2 turns on the top link from the stock position.(mine did anyway). ill measure the length of all my links, and get them to ya. That was one steady hover, but then again...i told ya its a mini 90!!

Dont start a fight in the gazaur thread please guys! this is no war zone!

Ok boys...let me try. Ive got TWENTY TWO helis! Most from different manufacturers. 7 are flying. I have paid for them all myself, and i love them. I also rep (full pilot, or rep) for 5 companies, and fly everything from a Blade CP, to Predator max 90. As you know, i fly my Blade CP inverted in my living room, and land it on the floor, on the rotorhead. Im also 15.

Sure i know its not the smartest thing, but its a blade CP...if anyone thinks its gonna hurt someone, honestly get a grip. IMHO, if brovic feels the need to switch helis every week, so be it! Its his paycheck, its his life. It shouldnt directly effect anyone here except for brovic himself! If a man feels a need to date a different girl every week, have a different car every week, or have a different heli every week, whos to stop them, or to say theyre better or worse than we are?

Nuff said guys! This is a friendly thread, lets keep it that way!

P.S. i sure wouldnt go saying brovic dont have brains...he seems like a pretty fart smucker to me!
