as far as can say even the 300 size outrunners are too large in diameter.i believe a 24 mm diameter is the most you can use unless you modify somehow the bracket where the front landing gear struts join.move the whole front end of the LG further out and use longer skids.i think that would mess up the whole balance though.
hey burg:bavaria must be beautyfull in the comming month.i was in the area during the fall season a few years back and i remember the changing of colours.i missed the october fest not knowing it's actually in september.or so i was told.

im using a e-flite park 370/4100kv inrunner with heat sink and 10 tooth pinion. 1900rpm/head with governor, 1300 ma pack weighing in @ a porky 415grams. my throttle on the tx says 84%. i havent run it real hard but it seems to climp out pretty good with minimal bog. if i try another motor at some point it will be the e-flite hacker which appears to be a little better motor. with all that being said i dont consider this expert advicebling bling, cha ching......... but honey

I am having a blast with mine!! I am using a 710mAh Lipo pack and it's just right for the little bird. I never expected long flight times but throttle management is always improtant with any electric heli.. It is a Very smooth little heli and it can handle a little bit of wind but it "will" disapear very quick if your not careful.. You have to remember this is Not a Vigor CS or a Vibe and I never expected it to be. I have been searching for a nice pair of glass blades for it.. That would be a nice upgrade! I have no complaints either with the Parkmite..

SUPER CHARCHED PARKMITE?
Well my parkmite's been sittin on the shelf collecting dust while ive been flying my sjm400. i had a pretty good crash with the sj and am waiting for parts so i decided to get the Mite out and play with it. after the first flight im thinkin "this thing has no balls". bogs real bad and climbs out like its stuck to the ground. so i say this thing needs more motor, bad. i remove the e-flite motor and try to stuff in a motor off my rex. wont fit. so i grab a stock motor that came with the sjm (3950kv outrunner), use the adapter from the e-flite motor and it bolts right up. 14t @ 70% thrt in governer mode = 2400 head (2900 wide open)and weighs the same as the e-flight with heat sink.im using a TP1320 mah pack and before with the e-flite motor i was getting 12 min flights putting 80% back in the pack. with this motor i have been flying 9 min putting 80% back in. thats flying aggresive with lots of pitch pumping and i cant hear any bog at all and the pack, motor and esc are barely warm.now we have an excess of power.perfect. next ill try a smaller pinion, different blades and chunk the e-flite gyro in favor of a 401 now that weight isnt as critical. im thinkin it will be less than 450gr with the 401.

I found the build directions to be straight forward, The only discrepency I had was with the radio setup even though I used the JR 9303.

make sure you keep the forward right servo high enough to get a wrench on the motor mount bolt directly below it. im using hs65mg servos on mine and they are a little bigger than others so you may or may not have this problem.bling bling, cha ching......... but honey

Hi Scooter,

I still don't believe any of these birds actually fly...
I've been looking for a video on this heli since they came out and there are none to be had.

I'm sure it will fly if it's set up proper but have yet to get any solid info on the heli. Wonder if it's one of those "tinker" to make it work heli. Do you have any helis you can compare it to? I wonder how it flies compared to say a T-rex?

Here's a challenge to all the Parkmite pilots -- post some vidoe to prove me wrong
