Hi Guys
Just thought I,d share my experience with my second hand x-cell 1005 that I bought and had shipped over to this side of the pond (Scotland).
The chap I bought it of goes by the name ddierking and i must say it was so well packed you could have dropped a bomb on it and it would have been OK .
The heli is in pristene condition and although being a few years old it has not been flown much atall.
After a very minor repair to the tail rotor (output shaft was bent)off I went to the field today (sunday)after a little fiddling with the mixtures it sparked into life I hovered a couple of tanks just to get a feel for the beasty and do the blade tracking and make sure nothing was going to come loose.
Then I took it upstairs and did some gentle flying around .
Well all I can say is I,m hooked this is the most stable heli I,ve ever flown it is rock solid in the hover and tracks fantastic in forward flight.
I now cant wait to get my Spectra G with tempest head built and into the air.
(Anybody want to buy a 90 muscle pipe its the only thing got left from my i.c helis)

Cheers guys A very proud NEW GASSER OWNER.
