I didn't see a section for the Gaui 255 so here it goes...

Just had a question about getting a complete tail setup. I bought a used Gaui 255 and it came w/o the tail from a member on here. It's going to cost about $70 for the tail.

Does anyone know of a good reputable source to get the Gaui 255 tail from for a more affordable price?

Thanks!

Ken

Hobbycity is marginally cheaper than the others but they don't stock all EP255 parts.

You may save a couple of buck but it will it will still cost about 80 USD. Here is a list of some HobbyCity's memeber prices so you can compare:

207029 - Gaui Hurricane 255 Heli CNC Integrated T.. $22.96 18
207030 - Gaui Hurricane 255 Heli H255 CNC Tail Ro.. $16.13 16
207020 - Gaui Hurricane 255 Heli H255 Tail Hub Se.. $2.53 15
207010 - Gaui Hurricane 255 Heli H255 Tail Output.. $6.96 16
207012 - Gaui Hurricane 255 Heli Bearing(2x7x3)x2.. $2.96 16
207026 - Gaui Hurricane 255 Heli H255 Arc Tail Le.. $16.13 16
207045 - Gaui Hurricane 255 Heli H255 CF Fin & Ta.. $8.13

Helifreak has a Gaui255 section. You may ask from there:http://www.helifreak.com/forumdisplay.php?f=232

One theoretical option is to buy the Integrated Tail Upgrade kit for Gaui EP200 (Part no. 203678). It is basically an EP255 tail but uses smaller EP200 tail blades & tail blade holders. One can use 42 mm Trex 250 or EP200 tail blades with these blade holders but 45mm EP255 tail blades are too thick.

This is not a cheap option either. Flying Hobby sells the tail upgrade kit for 56 USD but tail fin is not as tall as EP255 tail fin and needs to be replaced.

Thanks!
Aww thanks for the info.

This will help me out but still pretty expensive. I just need to find one on here for a decent price!

Do you fly a Piccolo?

No. I think that Piccolo was already out of fashion when I started this hobby. My first helis were sub-micro Walkera 4#3 and 4#3B. Nowadays I have a flybarless Gaui EP200 & EP255. For some weird reason I prefer the smaller flybarless helis over the 700-class monsters.

gaui 255 upgraded tail and landing gear
Excellent improvement in both the tail and landing gear. The tail has alot more authority with the 15T shaft. The landing gear has proven to be excellent already 3 crashes (brown outs due to weak bec in phoenix 25) and no damage. This heli fbl is top notch.

DX7 settings?
Does anyone have a good DX7 setting for the Gaui 255?

What is everyone flying? I had some servos that bind and accidentally reset all of my setting. I'm so bummed!

I do love the new tail design on this heli compared to the old one. Much more precise.
