What do you guys think of the 250?
Any power to it? Any major problems with it?

I got mine to do mild 3D indoors at the gym. So far I have not been dissappointed.
The tail did give me some grief in the beginning but has been straightened out.

I'm now flying carbon blades and its just what was needed for this bird.

Go ahead get one, you'll love it.

Thanks for the reply.
Been a year or two since I've flown but I've been messing around on the sim here and there and it doesn't seem like I lost too much.

I think when I finally get back into it I will stick to one heli this time instead of 10 at a time.. Trying to figure out which heli that is going to be.

I remember the 450 was one of my faves besides the L10, but 30-50's are out of the budget for now. I'm thinking either 450 or 250.

They fix that damper prob with the 450 V2 yet?

How much gyro space is on that lil 250? Enough room for a 401?

yeah you can mount a 401 upside down on there with no issues. get the 250, you'll love it. I just came back from flying in somewhat foggy weather with mine, no problems at all.

Casey,

Long time no post! How have you been? I was wondering where you had gone to.

I have yet to get my 250's tail to get sorted but I'm waiting on the new tail hub. I'm using some heavier batteries ~86g compared with the 68g Align batteries. It has some pep. I would like to get my hands on some CF blades. I ordered 3 sets, from 2 different vendors and they both said that they were back ordered.

I know that Cudaboy_71 has a new Scorpion motor installed on his 250. I think he likes it.

I need to get my tail sorted out but had some fun flying it before it crashed. It's more of a novelty for me. I like my 4s 450V2s better.

Actually I was flying my 700E conversion on 12S and that is a power monster!

Well hopefully we'll be seeing you around these parts again!

Doc, I was in HobbyHut a few days ago and they had everything you need. New hubs, carbon blades, and packs!

They were loaded up!

Hey S76Mech,

Thanks for the heads up. I placed my order. I kept adding things to the shopping cart thinking I would see an "out of stock" note but there was nothing of the sort. I hope that they have what I ordered in stock. I picked up 2 sets of CF blades. It looks like I will have a gang-load of CF blades. Hopefully I won't need them but it's nice to know I have them.

Thanks for the info guys.

doc:
I've been around. Just taking a little break is all. You guys will never get me away from the heli's for good. Every time I come back I get 10 times better.. so we'll see how good I get this time around.

The freekin' economy is killing us. It might be a short while before I am able to pick up a new birdie, but you will see me flying again.

I got major evil eye from the girlfriend today when I said I'm gonna buy a new heli
