I'm about to pull the 401 and install it.

I've been flying with the 401 for a bit now, so it'll be nice to get a "real world experience" comparison of the two.

I'll post my findings here.

Heck yeah, I'll let you fly any of my birds, you crash it, you buy the parts, but I have faith in ya.

I got the MiniG because of tail problems I had with the Rave, that weird "zzz zzz zzz" it would do. I lowered gain, since it acted like a high gain wag, but I thought it may have been the 401 getting old. It's been crashed countless times, and been on line 3-4 birds now.

But then I found something. During my last crash, the tail pitch slider got stuck on the shaft, and I had to use tools and force to get it off. Well, the little brass insert that rides inside the slider is moving back and forth by about 3-4mm now, and I can't force it in enought to stay, so I picked up a new one. This was after I got the MiniG, and I figure this is the source of the problem, but I've wanted to try the MiniG, so BAM. The hobby credit card had been recently paid off, and who am I to let our economy stagnate by lack of purchasing

I'm with you John, adjusting electronics on a Heli with a Laptop might seem cool until you need to drag it out to the field to make adjustments.

The G-View is so small and easy to use, and it's simple to carry it along in my TX case.
