I am looking at getting this Huey in a couple of weeks. I understand it uses the Shuttle mech's. Is there any upgrades that I need to do to make sure it's flight worthy? Ex...I read somewhere I should upgrade to the .50 size tail hub. Is there anything else I should know? Also, what version Shuttle comes with the Huey? Thanks.

Upgrade
Flight worthy?

It flys extremely well straight out of the box my friend.

I have had quite a few Hirobos over the years, Huey included, and I have never upgraded any of them.

But hey its your call!

Hey thanks. That's what I want to hear. I just mentioned the T/R hub because somewhere I read someone had this Huey and upon test flight his hub came apart so he upgrades to the .50 size hub. I just wanted to make sure there was nothing that is defective right out of the box like some of the other heli's I have.

Edit: This is one of the examples I was talking about concerning the clutch

That hub has been around for 20+ years and works great, somebody didn't put it together correctly. No problems with the stock mechanics if you are a sane pilot trying to make the bird look scale in flight.
