I am loving the quality of this chopper.
Got some 0.1mm & 0.2mm shims in various sizes and managed to remove any play that I found on main & tail blade grips. There is absolutely no play anywhere now.

It is LOGO 600 gear, I think it is better that the stock gear. You will need to elongate the mounting holes about 2mm either side. I also used LOGO 600 boom support.

I also had to find some shims for the head but I have never bothered shimming the tail. Just take a look at the Hirobo tail hub if you want to see end float that causes no issues whatsoever.

The only curious think about the nitro kit is the frames are cut at an angle above the elevator servo. On the electric frame set that is left square and has a gyro tray. For me this has always been the most successful place for the gyro.

I have also found it very difficult to get the boom support block out because the block also contains the mountings for the elevator servo and it has the bits for holding the belt guides even if you get the TT version of the kit.

I'm still working on building mine but did you find any vertical play in the tail takeoff gear shaft? I did and used a couple of Hirobo 5x7x0.1 shims to get it out. I think it would have really worn down the gears w/o it.

I did not find any vertical play in the tail takeoff gear shaft.
The only play was in the main and tail grips, and some of the flybar and washout linkages. Shims have sorted it out perfect.

Yea jackp332, already have my eye on the new mini titan 360...

Paulo - which part is the Logo boom support to which you're referring?

I recognized those Logo skid struts...very nice looking Paulo.

With the white canopy, I'd be tempted by the WHITE Logo struts AND the WHITE Logo pipes. But I will build mine stock for now.

The LOGO boom supports are from the LOGO 600, they are longer than the stock ones but i am not happy with them, too thin and a little bendy. I will fit Raptor 90 carbon boom supports, just as long but much stiffer. The white landing gear will look cool too.
