I'd go ahead and put the quick UK link set on... I flew mine stock for about 80 flights before i noticed the stock links becoming a bit sloppy and they would easily pop on and off.

after in stalling the quick UK set I wished I'd done it earlier. its by no means a must but, I'd just do it for the peace of mind

It comes in a complete set, balls and links. I hope your friend did not just do links. They need to be changed as a full set. If he did, get the video camera out for every one of his flights..

are there any directions as to which links and balls go where? mine came with 2 long links and just curious where they go. Also the longer balls I would think would be for the swash.

the links are a must.

i just saw a fren's 700 crash a few days ago due to a bad ball link. $300 damages caused by sumtin dat is less than $3. and its the 2nd time.

I swear that I keep reading all of these problems with main gears, links and I almost regret ordering a 700. It is alot of money to spend on something this questionable, Oh well maybe just the jitters, but thinking I should have bought the raptor or the vibe, Sad thinking this and it will not be here until tommorrow

try not to read to much into the fourms all you hear about is the problems...

mine flew great stock straight out of the box. it was not until i started to make changes like the microheli main gear(big mistake) that i had any issues striping gears. Really and truly its a great machine... right now its my favorite 90

just build and enjoy.

If you getting links get the Align -1 links,they are much better.Your's might already come with them anyway.

I wish I had slapped on the QUK links before my short pitch links popped up after just 14 flights on a bnew kit.

I too was leary on buying the 700, buy did any ways and happy I did

However, I did buy the Quick UK controll link set,
http://www.ronlund.com/Merchant2/me...Code=QUKTX7C-07,

and the Microheli triple bearing block,http://www.helidirect.com/microheli...700-p-10357.hdx,

and,http://www.helidirect.com/microheli...-700-p-9199.hdx, for the canopy.

The triple bearing block works great, very little back lash.

Just my 2 cents...

Well I got it built and tested it today with the -1 links. It looks like the -1 links and gears were in my kit. I cannot tell a diffrence looking at them gear or links. Hovers great. Why do the gears turn black. It looks like it is wearing in ok. I ordered the links from rons heliproz yesterday so I will change all of them over when I get them. Seems to fly pretty good though. ( I just keep seeing it explode in my mind ha ha ) Are the quick uk links rocket city links?? What are the part numbers for spares, any diffrenet colors of links???

you really need to buy the whole quick UK link kit as it resizes all the balls... the rock city links will be to big to fit the align balls
