Mine will be on the way I assume, after RH gets back from ircha.

The 550 is kinda of last minute change of mind. I was after another 550 heli but since I would need mini servos for the other heli, the 550sx is actually going to be cheaper for me with RH's -10% special.

So I bought the The/scorpy combo. Is there anything else I need?

I have 8717s, MP80g, 2 5000mah lipos, and a "spare" mini vbar with 5.3 in my spares bin. Maybe I'll sell the one that comes with it or put it in my spares bin

I read about Mikado horns and various pinions. Are they necessary? What headspeed is the stock pinion good to?

Any other pointers? I'd rather build all the way through than wait a week for some small widget.

Thanks for any answers, I'll get read up in the meanwhile

Thanks for the reply.

I did read somewhere about the pinions.

I ordered the Mikado horns for JR earlier. Maybe I can ask them to add the pinion in my order.

Can't wait, since losing my glow field I've been waiting to buy a larger electric.
