Hovering is not the problem,the tail on these things are.I've owend several gas heli's this is my first electric one.I've orderd that 43t belt for mine see if it helps.I've read about moveing the servo up on the tail boom that's a new one.I moved the servo horn and it helped some but then it binds on the slider?? Can't win

It gets marred the shaft that is and gets stuck in the bearings yank it out and polish it with wetordry sandpaper to put it back in. As far as the tail If you set it up right with a good HH gyro the tail works great except for hard 3D. which the king isn't a 3D machine to start with.

Hey I have actually done this and can help ... maybe.

To pull main shaft

1) Remove the little bolt and nut on the main gear.
2) Pull up on the shaft while holding the belt pulley in place. (Notice the pin that comes out of the top of the pulley)
3) Remove the pin.
4) Remove the main gear if you have not done so already.
5) While holding the belt pulley, pull the main shaft the rest of the way out.

I did this recently with out loosening the belt.

I know I live in amish country myself To north for hispanics so we hire amish for building and demoloshing. Cause us americans is lazy.

Poor guy already bought a 43t you seen bluesabers vid strong tail no loss in major hopups. But he said it wasnt that big a difference.

norsman you do know that with the 43t pulley it requires a different belt only available from the people selling the pulley mod. Stock belt doesn't work.

I understand the gyro cost thing. I already had the gy240 so it was the logical thing to do. Do you have the RTF flying the brushed motor?
