Did all I could do waiting for o.s. 91 hz-r and bls255hv servos, fit and a finish is the best, quality is the best, went together perfect.
complete set-up, Hopefully by the end of next week it will be in the air.

I never did like the yellow canopy on the Titan SE, not too sure about this one either. I thought it was difficult to see.

But I do really like the red canopy! Here's mine.

They are not really in the same category as Align. The G4 is more expensive and better quality. It would be a good move up from Align in quality and performance but it’s unclear as to how many will be willing to pay the price. Lots of folks think that Align is good enough and don’t want to spend more.

I got my blades and servos today, they'll be in this weekend, my glider got ditched today so i'll be fixing that, I'm not in a hurry to finish the G4 I have plenty of others helis to fly but the glider in nice for the wind and 45min flights off one battery. I still don't have an engine but maybe next Friday or so i'll have a nice new hz-r

First 5 flights to day, No pics sorry, just fly circuits, hovered and mid aerobatics. it is quieter in the air the the old raptor 90, flys light smooth, fast, it fits my style a lot, smooth for big air stuff but i can tell already you can push it hard, it is tail heavy with just a 2300mah A123 rx pack, will be looking for i different pack, more up dates in coming days as the new o.s. hz-r speed is broken-in

Head Linkage?

Why does it have double links up to the grips instead of a single link to the grip like all the other brands? That will probably be the first modification that someone tries.

I noticed that also.
My first thought was phasing?
On the other hand, the shorter links should be stronger.

How is the tail rod?

Here is some more info on the head, see pic
I like the head design it flys nice and feels strong,
the tail rod seems fine, stronger then the x50, i have the stock tail rod set-up on my x50 too, i do put some heat shrink with a small amount of jp weld on the bends

The more I look at it. The more solid it looks.
The two shorter links should be stronger than one long one.

Do you have any photos of the tail assembly an how did the build go?

I am not seeing much discussion on this heli or most other new helis for that matter.

The build went smooth, my favorite build i've done, the torx head bolts are great, i haven't modified anything (haven't found anything to modify) no dremal to get anything to fit either. i'll post some more pics when i get home, and of flying in the next few days, i have thrus and fridays off so i don't always fly with anyone to take pics or video, on sunday mourning i do but i was the only one flying today, 7 flights total on the G4
