Im after a fast 3D heli that will not fall apart or break from 3D abuse, is the SDX for me?

How do I figure out which positions to use on the head for more agility, ive heard the manual only tells you the standard stable positions?

The SDX is a quality Hirobo model that will not fall apart. Its ability to perform big open 3d as well as the tight 3d pumping action is what makes this model shine. It will fly and track more like a big model then a little model.

As for the manual about how to setup the rotor head you are correct it only shows the stock setup. There is a very well written article on MRC website that Dr. Ben wrote that will explain the rest. Here is the link:

You can ask SDX owners about the quality of the SDX. They will all tell you that it is outstanding. It would not fall apart and it will take everything you throw at it. With the introduction of the new big bore engine the SDX performs like the larger Turbulence D3 without the price tag and the cost of fuel. I know you will not me disappointed when you get your SDX. On top of that, you have a Great Hirobo forum that you can find all of the answers to your questions on the SDX and Hirobo.

The model was designed from the ground up to stand the hardest 3D that can be thrown at it. All reports to date confirm it has lived up to or exceeded the design expectations. You'll be hard pressed to EVER find ANYONE regretting the purchase of an SDX. Precious few other models on the market share such universal acceptance in the helicopter community.

Well thanks to you guys im £304.99 down and one Hirobo SDX up!

Everything went together nicely, I was gob smacked at the quality and precision of the parts! Very time consuming build I found as there are ALOT of parts. Maiden flight was a success even without a governor, I had both weights out of the paddles and the rest set as the manual.

Well just been out with the SDX today trying different head settings, im now at the most aggressive settings with no weights in the paddles and boy does it move!

Are the washout arms supposed to be slightly off from each other at mid stick or should they be in line?

Im using the Align GP750 gyro and JR 8900G tail servo, the tail moves freely with no binding or slop, the engine is tuned nicely, the paddles are in line and equadistant and the blades (SAB 620 Red Devils) balance perfectly and are in track but I still have a vibration induced tail kick/wag! Its only slight but still noticable in a hover. I first tried the Spartan soft thick pad on the gyro then the harder thin pad, the only thing I haven't done is use a velcro strap because of the lack of room to thread one through. Any ideas anyone?
