I'm running a YS50. and HS-5625mg's and a Lodgictec 6100t/6100g as these are the items I had laying around.
I would highly recommend better servos than the 5625s. They are fast and torquey, but center horribly, worst than any servo I ever tried on a heli, giving you a feeling of chasing the helicopter constantly.
Is all cool if that all you have, but look fwd to a big improvement in feel if you tried something better.

Hey Alan, Ya their not the Edge style dampners just a standard rubber style.

Hey MoneyPit, Ya I just have them sitting here so I'm just gonna run them till my 610's come in and I'm not gonna pull my 9451's out of my other heli.'s. But I do agree their not that great but will work for now.

Does it have an E-clip on the starter shaft? If it does, I would consider replacing it with a c-clip!

Yes, it does have an E-clip on the starter shaft. I'll head out and get a C-clip.

Hi,

I like it, gone a buy it but where to get the spare part? In my view , some part most compatible with Raptor, such as Spur gear, belting, tail pitch and tail cover.

How about spindle, main mast, tail boom, landing gear etc? Is it compatible with JR Vibe?

Which shop selling this spare parts?

If understand........ Nice!!

Amainhobbies.com has the heli and are putting the parts on the site this week (they say)
Personally Im still sceptical on this, $219 for all that cnc...hmmm.
Id sure like to see one in person first. What is the fit and finish like? Certainly I would think it needs some tweaking out of the box.
Heck its cheaper then a Kinetic 50!
just my 2cents

Right now, Amainhobbies is the only shop carrying the TZ-V2.
Believe me, the price is there to get the helis to move, not to make a lot on each kit.
I believe that in a few months, the distribution will get better.

I do not think that there are any parts that you can source from the Vibe or any other heli (the heli is not a direct copy of the Vibe).

The CNC machining is- in general- very good.
The plastic molding is very good to excellent (they have been making plastic helis for a LOOONG time).

It's also time to take another look at the TZ Shark. I need to post pictures of mine and and some flight vids. I just built the 90 version over the weekend and I have to say that there is no other helicopter with a smaller parts count or easier assembly...

Kamlooper, I was skeptical too, but took a shot. Got it saturday, took it to the field sunday and the guys couldn't believe the quality for the price. It's all good!

Yes the plastic is very nice stuff... the metal ya not the high quality like some other's out their but it's very nice and durable....

I got to test fly mine today very stable and solid in a hover seemed to track nice and strait.

I did have a crash due to my own fault.. Had me a "you idiot moment" I got the heli setup ready to go but my "Idle 1" I left it at a 0-100 curve.

So I was out doing some hovering and tuning getting the gyro right. OK got that done... now for some basic forward flight and such. OK that turned out great felt good and locked... now time for some roll's and loop's. Fliped the idle up went to do a roll.... and wouldn't you know the Idle died...Damn I cant beleive I did that.. so I came down right side heli into the ground.... Doesent look to awfully bad. Boom, boom supports, strut's, front radio tray, flybar and blade's. I was about 10-15' up when it just dropped.

It might of not been as bad if my finger's would of done what my brain was telling them to.... I might of saved it.

I did get a few pic.'s... Before and after....

Hey Aussie,
Thats kindof why I got it as a beater. As for Stability is right on par with the Knight.

I cant really coment on the rest of the cyclic since I screwed up on the throttle curve setting.... Bad part is I didn't know what happened and after looking and my radio setting's I seen I didn't set up ST 1 but I did have my ST 2 all set up right... It did want to roll good from what I seen but it's hard to really know since my throttle setting's were not set right.

I'll get some part's comming as soon as they get in and get it back in the air.... I'll keep you posted.

I don't crash... I land with style

Hey Skew,
Ya hopefully before to long...

It actually seem's pretty durable for how hard it hit... on concrete... Like I said it dropped like a rock from about 10-15' up

Yeah - easy fix, if you can get the parts, you can use landing gear, flybar & boom supports from almost any .50 size...

I know A-Main hobbies has tail booms..

Where did you buy yours from?
