Cheers for that Ady, answered a lot of questions.

How does it balance, mine is quite nose heavy at the moment and it is still flybared, I have a Fromeco reg and 2400 pack and my rudder servo is up front.

It would help if the cg is spot on it because it would be easier for the 3g to work easier. The instructions says something about that .

Yep I'm the one that did the OS mod to the TT53, first let me ask is your throttle sticking and hanging up after you run it after it get hot , if not I would leave it alone and fly it , but if you are having problems like that I say go for it as the OS is very easy to set up and I believe it does give it a little more hp buts that my opinion. I have one TT carb that is fine on one TT53.Read my thread and you will decide what to do .Here it is

at last my engine is sorted , so some proper flights where done , will fit a gov when poss to keep a more constant headspeed , you can still bog it by the way , a slight wobble on elevator now with gains at 40% , when i pie dish thingy there is a slight tail wag , apart from that , she rocks n rolls pretty good , auto`s are forever

@ ady

So the Align head fits marvelous on the Raptor main shaft? -

and even the hole of the Align Flybarless head lines up perfectly with TT shaft? -without any modyfications?

Did you use these Quick UK ball links (see link) ?

Hello there....

Does the raptor still have a tandency to dive in fast forward when using the fbl pack from align....??

And how is the tail feel using the align pack....
Cuz curently i'm using the align gyro.... and didnt really like the gyro cuz of the inconsistence piro rate..... and the piro is not as smooth as the solid g.....

And it seems they have to work together as a pack of align 3g.... or can they work with other gyro brand...??

Tq so much

- Let's Fly Guys.....!!!!!
