I just discovered this thread, I thought the other seemed kind of dead. Anyways, I flew the furion with the 770 and it is absolutely amazing compared to what I've been using. The bad news is I didn't have the gyro cable tied down well enough and it touched against the scorpion motor and frayed the cable. I was considering shortening the wire at the fray since the gyro has about 3' of cable and is about an inch from the receiver. Is splicing the gyro cable an "acceptable practice"?

It would kill me to send it in for service now that there is some daylight left when I get out of work.

Changing things up!
I am interested in your guys opinions of this. I would like to sell/trade my 2 flying heli's for one 450 V3 Pro. I would also be interested in entertaining the sale of the Blackhawk Fuse. Here is what I had in mind. Selling outright both of the heli's, the T rex 600N and the TT electric scaler with all the electronics, servos governor, gyro etc.(No RX) and I would end up with cash and a 450V3 Pro.

T-Rex 600N with many upgrades, TT tail, metal blade grips, GV-1, Switch glow, Spartan gyro, Fromco reg, Futaba servos(9452 on 6v).

TT E550 w/Titan tail, Futaba servos (3152 on 6v), fromco reg, CC HV85, 2-4s 8000mah batt in series, TT electric motor in a TT Eucriel scale fuse painted OD Green with ARMY markings.

Not sure what everythings is worth your opinions.

Various reasons for doing this and right now just checking the waters to see if it is worth it.

To all my concerned friends
I am not selling out, don't have another hobby, don't have a girlfriend, just need some extra cash and have not done much flying lately. Still want to fly thats why I want the 450 pro V3. Still a member of the Rotor Rebels, still an AMA member. Chief

From what I have seen, selling off models while remaining in the hobby usually does not help cash issues, only causes more further down the road.

On another note I sent in the 770 to have the lead replaced, I didn't like how the splicing was turning out. I need to find some small cloth tubes to bundle servo leads together.

Jason, thanks for your concern. I would agree with you to the extent that if someone gets out of the hobby altogether and sells everything they own then comes back in, it will cost. Sometime's you gots do what you gots to do!

Horizon
Hey Guys,

Just got the call from Horizon, our account for the store is now officially opened.

I don't plan on having tons of inventory on hand from them. So if there is anything that you would like to see in stock, please let us know. Of course it goes without saying, but we would certainly welcome the opportunity to order any items that come up for your own personal needs. So please keep us in mind.

Thanks for all the support,

Chris & Deb

There will be indoor flying at the High School Gym in Alba on Sunday if anyone is interested. 10:00am - 2:00pm

Trex 250se is up and running, so far, so good.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter
