So how is that canopy for orientation? I was losing orientation just watching the vid. Looks good though.

Just be careful when you go to hook up your Align gov. I blew my engine up because the common settings used that I got from this site caused the gov to open the throttle all the way up. I don't think it's the setting's fault themselves, just something somewhere in my settings, despite following the recommended setting to the letter, caused my issue. I have it sorted now, but it took a blown engine to get there and my settings ended up very different than what you find doing a search.

Its kinda hard to see when its cloudy out like it was today but should be good for clear days.I'll get another one with bright colors once taxes come in,I would love to find one (Canomod) like I had on my Trex 600N .


That canopy was easy to see on cloudy and clear days.
Im thinking about getting another Revmax with Spektrum backplate sensor because I need a sensor,sensor bracket and magnets anyways.I can get the Spektrum sensor for the price of them and its easyer to setup I think.If I try this gov out i'll shoot ya a pm for some help haha.Thanks so much sir ..

try to find a metal rotor hub if you can. Had a buddy with a R90 and he broke the hub and ended up with a bad boomstrike and taco'd the heli big time.

cool
No prob about letting u know! Hate to see a heli go down for something like that. Good you knew about it prior though .

PS if you can pick up an Outrage 90 pipe for your OS it will make a fair bit better power than the Align pipe. At least that's what a couple guys I've met said after they switched.

Crap,I was looking at the Outrage 90 pipe right before I got this one .Maybe i'll keep an eye out for one but I really couldn't pass the Align pipe up,got it for $60.00 shipped and its pretty much new .
