They stole the LG design from the Rave and it works well and is very very cheap and easy to replace.

that's kinda a good thing.

I dont think its enough to compete with the Rave it still looks to be a Trex450 same size with a TT and a new frame.

I'd like to see some pics of the drivetrain as well as the tail and to confirm that it is indeed still only capable of swinging 325s.

after flying the Rave and G5 on 350s it's going to be hard to go back to the standard 325 swinging bird and call it new and innovative.

Hopefully more new pics soon. I was really hoping they would throw the gauntlet down in the 450 class and do something that Both MA, CY, and Outrage had to worry about.. but looks like same old same old with some new polish.

If they make it out of the same material as the Lepton, there's no need to buy Gorilla gear because that landing hear is very tough. I've only gone through 1 pair of landing gear on my Lepton.

As far as the new 450, it looks like a mini 500. I kind of like it. I like the battery tray. Looks much more robust than what they've got on it now.

yeh the Rave gear is pretty stout as well.. way stronger than the gears on my Trex 450s even gorllia or the ECS stuff.
and it changes out in 2 mins.. ugly but very good.

Err wait I just looked at some Lepton pics I don't see the 1 piece LG as the Rave and the new T450 are using..

Ah are there more than 1 version of that heli out? not really familiar with Hirobos never even seen one outside of the Quark and SRB in person. the the pic I saw looked different all the way.

that is definitely 1 piece and nearly the same.

Holy cow, thats a real nice looking heli. I miss the hell out of my 450 that I sold. Was thinking about another one on 4S this time. Guess I will be looking closely at the Pro kit.

Like the design, lots of improvements from the looks of it. But I do agree about the landing gear, yuk...

If set up with a swash tool and pitch gauge there should be no adjustments needed. If you did need to adjust it, just use the long links from mixing arms to swash.
