Gun

I noticed the chain gun barrels are pointed generally downward, is that intentional ?

Also very important how does it fly.

It is easier to ask a foolish question than to spend $100's of dollars on parts.

You can point and swivel the front lower gun any where you want but it must be pointed down a little to get the front canopy on then put it where you want. it has a screw to set the tension on the swivel and rubber dampners for the guns themselves so they stay where you put them. As far as flying,I have only hover it and flew it around a little in my yard so far, mine is solid as a rock no vibration at all on this body. One note though I really could,nt run the 9650 tail servo because it is a little to big for the body, maybe if you redid the mounts you can fit it in , I just put a hs65 on instead.

You can mount the 9650 or 9257 from inside frame where manual said to be mounted rx. Mount the 9650 or 9257 stand up inside rear frame's wall. Using big zipe to secured it . (Little mod will make it work nice . But zip_tie cable work just fine.). I don't using stock tail pust roll. I custom my tail control roll with with carboon tube.

If your pocket got some spare $20 bills , you can get a micro digtal servo for boom mount (s3154 ??)

Btw, you don't have to do the lowered battery plate mod. Evo 2500 25 c 3s sitting inside just fine without lower the battery tray, this will also keep battery away from motor, if you running out-runner motor on your titan

Here's mine

I quickly discovered that the desert camo paint scheme I chose, while cool looking, can be a handful when flying against a background of sand and dead grass as seen in the second pic.

Now I keep it close or up against the blue sky.

Cobra Build and flight

The Cobra kit build very easy, one night (not including paint). All the parts fit a standard e325 frame, and includes black paddles and tail blades.

Flying: The extra cross-section that Cobra fuselage presents makes it much more sensitive to wind, especially for me (a sport flyer).

It is a little tail heavy, but I can't speak to the effect a raised, heavy tail has on 3D. However, the raised tail makes landings in tall grass muc easier, and I bet having the tail rotor in the same plane as the main rotor will have a positive effect on spins.

Last week, I had a light crash (uncontrolled landing) due to a bad battery failing in flight. while there was little damage to the heli outside the main gear and links, the fuselage split and broke along the tail boom. ReadyHeli told me they can special order a replacement fuse, but at close to $40. At this point, I think I'll fly it nekkid instead.

For a while, anyway. It was cool seeing a tiny cobra at our field.
