all i can say is this thing is awesome,i fixed the fan that loosened up due to the hiper engine being so tight.
now when i go to start it i also loosen up the glow plug for easier starting.
this thing is a huge confidence builder.
i not only rolled it numerous times,and looped it numerous times,i actually flipped it inverted about 15 times today.
what a rush,and i even held an inverted hover 3 times.
i could only fly one flight at a time and then wait due to my hands shaking so bad,i have never had a heli inverted before.
i already took off the flybar weights and dropped the expo down to 20%.
you guys were right when you said it rides like its on rails///

Good work man, I know what your feeling. When I flew the other day, it was the first time I did inverted nose in hovering, and I had it down to about 10' high, talk about pucker power.

I replaced my Webra with a Hyper on my Raven, after the con-rod broke when I was inverted, 30 feet from the ground!

I have no problems starting the Hyper. Make sure it does not get flooded when it is waiting on the bench: on my setup the fuel tends to flow into the carb if the fuel line is not shut off.

I have 11 tanks through it so far and I am starting slowly to lean it out.

Very smooth and consistent!

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

i have about a litlle over a gallon in mine so far.
i think i put 10 tanks through it just over the weekend.
my rolls were a little sloppy,might be my timing with the collective.
the forward flips were just like i did it on the sim,start out at aboutten feet and then shoot it up to about 125?or so and then flip it and hover for as long as i can.
i think the best was about 20 seconds or so nose in inverted.
man i am soo pumped up,i think that was the boost i needed to really start to fly good.
and i was surprised at how easy the ccpm was to setup,and how easy the gy401 gyro was to setup.

If you guys have already flown more than one gallon, you can lean the engine right out now to the final mixture setting. An OS engine will usually break in fully by the time you have flown 3-5 flights. Just lean it out and enjoy it now
