Rumors say they are in final production and could be ready to ship to distributors in as little as 2 weeks. of course that's just rumors. hehe. I am waiting for one as well. I'm going to be building a Rave soon and would rather have the Mini-G over the Sparten onna conna I have a G-view for my ATG.

Ok here is the deal guys. Yes we did get VERY lucky! We received a very short production run of Mini-G's yesterday. We quickly finished up QC and shipped the units out the door to a few of the team guys and the lucky dealers that were at the top of the backorder list. Every gyro left the building, and they should start seeing the units early next week. Retail will be $179.99 Happy hunting guys!

Oh, and FYI the next full production run is expected mid to late February.

Here is a look see!

Actually Curtis called to tell me that the best way to setup the Mini-G is with a slight amount of right rudder in the tail blades when the tail servo is at 90 degrees. This is of course slightly different than how you set up the the Solid-G. Also any of the setup programing can easilly be done without the G-View, and there is less to set up with the Mini-G than there is with the Solid-G. So setup is a snapp. Any questions feel free to ask guys.

Oh and FYI, we have tested the Mini-G in all model sizes from 250's to 90's, glow and electric. If it is mounted the way we suggest in the instruction manual there should be no issues using the Mini-G in any model.

Not at all, as long as the mount point is solid.

Brian,
My Mini G is ordered. I cant wait to try it in my Hurricane 200.
Did Curtis say why it is best to set up the Mini G with a slight amount of right rudder?
As you mentioned this different from all other HH gyros that I am familiar with.

so that when the servo is at center the thrust from the tail should be even with the torque of the main rotor.

kinda like setting up in normal mode first like other gyros.

Well the cool thing is the Mini-G has normal rate mode as well, which is another big change from the Solid-G.

Yet another cool little detail I forgot to include.
