pay attention to the tail assembly. It can bind if the screws are too tight. Also, make sure to use locktite there as I've had screws back out even with loctite on them.

only the cobra fuses so far. I'm working on one right now. If I wasn't so lazy, it would be done by now.

everything you need is in the box. It replaces the stock boom with a two piece boom and a different belt. There are some changes, but nothing is major and be completed fairly quickly. I started the fuse on new kit and I am at the part of setting up the blades and setting pitch. I also need to set the tail servo and speed control, but I am having binding problems with the tail right now and dont' feel like messing with it.

truthfully, I think it would be better to install it after you have flown your heli. Then fly the mechanics after you install the other parts, then fly the fuse when finished. I'm just getting too lazy to finish the set up. If I had a heli already set up, it would have been faster for me.

Phoenix or Real flight will help you learn. Right now real flight is having problems with their multiplay, but other than that, its an alright sim. I have real flight and aerofly professional deluxe. They both work fine. Real flight offers some flight training. I think phoenix does, but I am not sure. I may buy phoenix and give it a whirl.
