I love my R-30, Super reliable and durable. I even landed the thing inverted from a hover, hit throttle hold and landed. Nothing broke just bent the flybar back and started it up and kept flying. Thunder Tiger makes a great heli. Enjoy it.

One mile of road will take you one mile. One mile of runway will take you anywhere in the world.

Yep R30's are awesome heli's to learn inverted flight on. I always keep a couple R30's on hand. Very inexpensive to fly and super reliable.

- shrink wrap the tail pin in place
- I drill a hole in the tail case so I can see the tail gear pin (not needed but I do it)
- green loctite the pinion bearing in place
- dial in the clutch
- drill an access hole into the collective arm for the starter coupler
- remove slop in the controls by gluing the sleeves onto the screws at the collective arm pivots and tail fork pivots. Let the glue dry before installing them. (again not needed but I've done that with success)

- *most important* Read the Raptor build articles on RCU, raptortechnique.com and myraptor.net

While your working on the tail I would upgrade to the PV0499 SUS tail hub.
