I had a chance to compare G380 and Devil head parts today. The Devil arms have a tighter tolerance with grips than the G380. The Devil arms will work on either grips.

The G380 arms fit the Devil grips the same way they fit the G380 grips. The G380 arms have a bigger tolerance( more play ) fit with grips. They have the same play on either the Devil or G380 grips. So since the play is the same they should work on either grips.

All the measurements between heads are the same. The Devil hard dampeners(3.78mm) are slightly smaller than the G380(3.80mm) ones. The Devil kits come with a smaller o-ring installed but they supply the thicker o-ring.

The two main shafts I have on hand are the same length. The spindles are the same length.

So why does the G380 cost so much more there were no mention of Gold on the G380.

Maybe because there was R&D, testing, you know something that cloners don't do...

Man, just look at us. We complain about manufacturers going out of business. Then we turn around and buy clones.

Yeah, that doesn't work. Without the innovators, there wouldn't be anything to copy.

Can live without clones. Can't live without the originals.

I bought my G380 because of the Devil. If it had never been made I would have never bought a SAB kit. I hate every canopy / boom color scheme SAB has.

You hate the colors of the SAB kit so you bought a cloner heli first and then bought the "hated"SAB kit?

Yep.. I was not spending the money on the SAB kit just to spend more on a new canopy / boom I liked to find out I would not like the G380. I never said I hate the kit. I hate their color schemes.

I never resell things I buy so I did not want to waste money if I would not like it. The Devil helped me see that I would like it by spending less money first.

You can all say what you want I don`t really care.

So in the end you bought the SAB kit, the devil kit, and a new color scheme, and you saved money? Just a very strange way to decide whether or not you like a heli

I always have two helis of the same style. One as a back up and one as the main flyer. So yes I did save money. The Devil kit w/ esc and motor was only $303. The G380 w/same esc and motor would have been at least $495.

How about the case where this Pharmaceutical company raise the price of their pill 5,000 percent,, what are people to do. At one point I saw the Devil for 245.00. And these people with their ohhhh I wont buy a clone, what if they needed that pill guess they would be like ohhhhh I wouldn't buy a clone pill ( RIGHT )fact is there isn't a clone pill so they can raise the price 5.000 percent. I love to hear the righteous defend the monopolizisers of the world they make me laugh ( they so righteous )clones put the TRUTH into perspective. Could you imagine if Mac was the only computer I Would have to sell my house to own one. I remember Sony tried to rule with Beta VHS set that record straight, Remember Ma Bell,,There were some people who were apposed to a Monarch they formed a place called AMERICA then a lot of people wanted to go there haha how about that.
Look at VBar they tried to Rule I guess they do ( not ) ha ha,, then we get a knuckle head like the Doland who wants to rule the Planet ha ha . Big joke.

The pharmaceutical industry and R/C helis have nothing to do with one another when it comes to business practices. Lumping people who sell something at an exorbitant cost that others NEED to survive and people who sell a luxury item is not fair or accurate. The market will dictate if the price of a luxury item is too high, people simply will not buy it without it being stolen and sold from under them.

yeah i got a D380 for christmas and this thing is awesome it had its problems in the beginning but i have not put any new parts on it yet. i had to put the pinion back together after it loosened up and unscrewed a libral amount of retaining compound was used to ensure it doesnt come loose again. i have put several flights on it since and all is good so far. im running a quantum motor with a cc 75 lite with a cc10 amp bec kst d215mg on cyclic and futaba s9650 on the rudder. The goal was a icon but it does not work its fubared (wasted money on that one) so the new goal is a genuine Vbar but until i scrape up the money for one Kbar will work all day long.here are a couple of cc logging graphs from todays trip to the field.
