agree

After you have gone through the whole heli, servo travel, gyro, gear mesh direction etc then you fly it ACE not the other way around regardless of used or not..there is no need to make a scary looking frankenstien to hold your heli.

As for the engine I agree with the dkshema. At Bennits 3d class he suggested nitros even before the last of the first gallon the engine is good to go. This is running rich of course.

I have seen the headloaders deform as yug says, but on inspection the wiffle balls had started to develop a crack near the screw which holds them to the arm. After replacemnet they no longer deformed. I always check them out now and also look at them through a sky tack any signs of deforming and they are spooled down and replaced. The resonance can be alarming if you fix the heli to the ground so I let it run free. Also the slight inbalance puts a bit more strain on the parts than normal running would, after running the headloaders I then retire home and inspect the airframe for any probs and go round the bolts one more time.
As with all moving parts keep a good distance away from it while you run them up and you will be fine.
For run in I use them to get a couple of tanks through and establish the basic settings then I go out and fly the rest of the run in in the air,fuel is far to expensive to waste on the ground for too long.

Good luck
