Well,

I have officially joined the fold, now that the maiden flight of my Rave is complete. It flew perfectly, first flight, no trim adjustments needed. The tail gain was a bit high with fast backward and/or sideways maneuvers, so i dropped it down a bit. From there the tail was locked in and precise. I took 63% out of a 2200mah pack after 4 minutes, with moderately vigorous aerobatic flying.

This machine is state of the art as far as mini-helis are concerned.

My setup:

Scorpion 10, 14t pinion
4S 2200 mah Outrage 25/30
Radix 350mm mains
Radix Stubs, weights all the way out
stock tail blades
Jazz 40-6-18
CC 10a BEC
Spartan gyro
DS285MG X 3 and DS3500G

Looking forward to many more flights as our weather improves this spring.

Robbie

Outstanding.. Robbie, I knew you would really like it.. The more you fly it, the more you will want to keep flying it. It just gets better. It's a hoot to fly.. The fit of all the parts is what you will grow to appreciate as time goes on with no wear or slop. It fly's the same every time you put it in the air!

I haven't tried autoing my Rave on 325's... but on 350's its a pretty easy bird to auto.
