I came home from work last Wednesday to a box sitting on my chair addressed to me. I didn't order anything that big so I opened it up and inside was an E325 RXr. Now I was really puzzled. When my wife got home, I had the thing all spread out on the table half assembled already. When she ordered it from tower, she never changed the shipping to her. She says, well now you've got nothing big to open on Christmas day. She got it for me because I have been having trouble with my Swift NX since rebuilding it. It has been one thing after another with it just so I could get out and fly the thing. I am waiting for someone to get the alum tail housing in stock for my NX so i can get it back in the air. What is everyone running as far as collective range and how is the gov setup in the ace 40amp esc? I just robbed the rx from the swift today and want to get to work setting it up. Anything I need to be awre of on it other than the servos being marginal and I already do not like the eccpm mixer/gyro combo?

Had it in the air tonight for a bit, way too much tail wag, and can't tame it down at all. This will be a nice heli I can take to work and get a few flights in on my lunch in our unused warehouse. Just need to get a few things to make it a great little heli.

once you get everything sorted you will find this is a GREAT little heli.I have thousands of flights on mine and still love it.

do you have the reg or SE version?

for collective I run +/- 12 deg.
ok,as for the gov I have read that the gov on the ace esc is not so hot(I don't run gov on any of my elec so it doesn't really matter for me) so i have never run it,although the rest of the esc is awesome and the soft start is one of the best in the business.Having said that,there WAS a misprint in the manuual,and I dont know if they fixed it but they had the on/off settings for the gov mixed up,can you post what version of the manual you have and we can see if they fixed the misprint?

make sure the tail is smooth with no binding,it can be tricky to set up initially,but once set up right it holds excellant.sometimes(I have 2 MT's actually)you need to have a TINY bit of slop in the tail to get it smooth with no binding ,but it doesn't seem to affect hold or precision in the air.
as said I have a lot of experience with this heli,if you have any questions post them and we'll sort them out asap,good luck and enjoy this great little heli

hey,where is Shamokin Pa?I live in Aston Pa its in the far south east corner of the state

I don't like the amount of slop in the tail bellcrank link. The little link that is between the tail housing and the bellcrank moves around too much for my satisfaction. It does seem like it is going to be a good little heli. I just ordered some 1/8" carbon tube to make a set of training gear for my son to try his hands on the sticks.

Shamokin is NW of Philly. Up RT. 61 out of Reading.
