nice looking machine Just picked up a new 105HZ-R for mine cant wait to get it back in the air. Running the Torq servos all around and cyclones on main Radix 510's on the tail. Switching out my total G for an Ikon as well should be fun.

Glad you are enjoying it. I've had a blast with mine - started with a really beat-up and crashed model thinking I'd fix the obvious and fly it as a "beater."

Well, you know how it is, once you start cleaning, replacing, aligning - there's no end to it. Now I have a pristine Rave ENV with a YS120SR and 710 Radix (non-flybarless blades - but the Radix are great flybarless blades too) and a cheap Align 3GX controller (surprisingly good in my humble opinion).

The Rave is a big, durable machine - one of the best. I also have a very nice green canopy as well as the standard orange one.

It isn't perfect - but no helicopter is; each model has quirks. I really like the quality of the parts, the price of replacement parts, and the clean uncluttered design.

Happy flying with yours.

Looks good JC! I just re- equipped mine a few weeks ago. JR XG14 with XBus to a new Silverline Vbar, new JR 8917HV cyclics, MP82G Wide Voltage on tailrotor... Heli always flew well, had several different servo, gyro, radio combos in it but this is the best yet!

Has YS120SR and Funtech pipe... Best flying heli I've ever had

Yeah I'm using the Vbar gov, pretty happy with it. Tried it on a black vbar years ago and had nothing but trouble, but this works a lot better for some reason.

Using a Futaba sensor (was already installed and left over from CGY750) and a JR DS821HV on throttle.

Yes, my Rave is my favorite heli. I run the OS 105-hZr with VP Powermaster 15%. I have plenty of power and in my neck of the woods VP Heli 15% costs $20 a gallon versus 30% at $23 a gallon.

Running the Vbar as well with their governor. Not a hic-up yet.

I also love my Rave Nitro.

Last weekend my throttle servo happen to quit at full throttle - it was a blast to fly at over 1950 head speed.
