I have pre ordered the super combo.

Does anyone know if the servo arms are included? If not- what is the suggested part # for the savox servo included.

Also maybe Dave can answer what is the part # of the 23t pinion to get the performance I see in Kyle's video. (States 20t pinion in the kit)

Being my first 'super combo' kit ever, What else will I need to complete it that might not be included (of course I need the rx)

Maybe Dave can comment on how much of that 3700mah pack your using and how long you fly that pack- just for a point of reference. Obviously my mileage may vary.

Thanks, Steve

It could come with the 23T, they updated the specs on their website.

@ smittylube,

Servo arm in the kit? Often when Kyle gets pre-production helis from Mikado for testing, what he gets is a bunch of plastic bags containing parts, that in no way resemble what's going to be contained in the final kit contents. So it was with the 480's he received.

I suspect arms will be included...but? In any case, Savox servos have the same splines as Futaba servos, and the Mikado part # for those arms are #4021.

The Mod.5 herringbone pinons are the "41" series, with the last two numbers of the 4 digit part number being the tooth count. So the 23 tooth pinion would be a #4123.

Flight times with the 3700mah pack? Yesterday Kyle flew a flight that was about as hard on the heli as he could make it. He flew for 4 minutes, and used 2891 milli-amps from the pack (78%). Generally speaking, if Kyle flies a combination of hard 3D, some big-air stuff, and some technical maneuvers (like an average demo flight), he can get 4.5 minutes...but as with almost all of his machines of any size, he pretty much flies a "standard" 4 minutes, so he doesn't have to worry about it.

Hope this helps,

(-: Dave

Got the call - kit with my name on it. RH had no idea if the servo horns or 23 t pinion were included. Apparently the box has not suggested any revisions - will find out an a few days.

Mikado

With the current debacle at Ready Heli with Mikado, I'm wondering if I'll be able to get the Vbar Silverline that I had on order.
I am flying Vbar on about 10 helis and 2 Logos but I'm curious to see if the perceived arrogance of Mikado catches up to them in the Marketplace.

You didn't give much details about your situation. So I'll just try and cover all the bases.

I see you are located in the U.S. "Mikado" doesn't sell their products in the U.S. Up until December 31st, "Ready Heli" sold Mikado products in the U.S. If you ordered a V-Bar from RH prior to December 31st, and it showed in-stock when you ordered it and they accepted your order, then you should talk to RH about it.

If RH says they are no longer honoring orders for Mikado's products they accepted prior to Dec. 31st, then hopefully they never charged you, and in a few weeks, you can order a V-Bar from the new as yet announced U.S. vendor of Mikado's products.

Hope this keeps your stress level down.

Standard servo arms included in servo boxes. a nice single arm in there among the typical ones.

Out of all of the combo kits I have looked at this does probably represent the best I have seen.

Other Mikado combos have been little more than just adding the single item component costs but this one gives a pretty big saving here in the UK.

servos mounted in frames, frame together. goes quick so far.
what a great fit on everything. Even the edges of the CF frame are smooth and dont need to be sanded to get the rough edges off. very impressive so far.
