Is the 4G6 for me?
I want to buy the 4G6. I now fly a Hawk 30. I can hover in all orientations and do circuits - all in all, I am comfortable with it.

Do you think I can handle the 4G6?
Hawk Pro

unpredictable
If that is your belief Sir --- you havent set up your g6 properly-- it is stable and reacts as my 450 -- the micros require alot of time and effort to make right. Mineas very predictable -- there just stupid faster on cyclic then some thing hehe.

The key words here are "require alot of time and effort to make right"

I fly gassers ,nitro 50 size, Trex 450,and this little bugger.
The 4G6 metal head from the factory was junk ,it wobbled due to the hole for the mainshaft was too big. Too much slop in the spindle,,sloppy mixing arms,,poor servo setup ,lousy stock motor.

I intalled a plastic head,plastic blade grips, modified my metal mixing arms,redid the whole linkage from centering the sevos on up,,modified the tail slider to get rid of slop,,oiled all ball links ,installed a WOW upgrade inrunner[one of the hotrod motors] This new motor is no powerhouse but better than stock and should be stock with the heli at least.
It's getting better but it hates wind where as I can fly the Trex 450 easily in winds up to 20 mph.
Your Hawk 30 will seem like an oceanliner compared to the 4G6.
The 4G6 is interesting and fun to fly especially if you like to tinker with very small parts and modify and make right stuff that was not setup correctly from the factory. Most videos I see besides the fly it like yo hate it stuff have the heli wandering about seemingly on its own with the pilot catching up all the time. Never seen a rock solid hover or controlled moves like even a upright slow figure8 .
If the hawk 30 was your first heli and your doing well then I would suggest a TREX 450. Most guys and Hobby Shops are familiar with them and they fly great.
Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

If you have to ask, you're probably not ready for it. It's a hand full. I got mine as my first heli and the only reason I stuck with it is cause I'm some kinda masochist, it's that hard.

Hi
i have a 4G6 and a 2801 Pro , and have found it to be a great little heli , it is not that hard to fly for someone with some experience , and is a total riot to fly , mine are totally stock and are my favorite helis to fly , i think having the 2801 Pro TX is key to this little machine though , regards

It's not that bad. It's just much quicker than a larger one. Things happen a lot faster. you have to think/react faster because it's smaller. if you buy one, get a set of 3/16 wheel collars and put them on the flybar as weights. I did that to mine, and it really slowed it down a lot. You also can do the same with dual-rates/expo. i will say that it is a PIA to work on, cause its so darn small...uuuggghh! I'm getting sucked backed in again...

My problem with the heli was the poor setup and alot of poor quality parts. As of now I got her dialed in with no vibs and she is a joy to fly,,for the moment. My problems started with a wobbly metal head block from the factory as well as bad stock motor and bent new mainshaft plus alot of other litle things . Now it's a fun heli and will do what I tell it to do.
Maybe mine was made on either monday or friday?

My 4G6 just showed up tonight. Just finished some hovering and I think it hovers nice. There is a new version out called the 4G6S it has some extra stabilization built into the RX. Mine has the 2801Pro TX, and it looks like it is going to be a good combo.

I also have the Novus CP (first one not the 125) and the TX on those are junk, I am going to try it with the 2801 and see if it flies better. The Novus is "Totally Nuts" but the 4G6 is controllable but it will keep you on your toes. I think it will be a fun bird.

Glad it works well for you especially right out of the box!! You are luckier than I!
Mine is flying very well these days,,,,finally and I am glad too that I have the 2801 TX. Are you running the stock motor or is it a Hot Rod from WOW?

Mine is stock as of now. I did pick up the new RX for it with the 3 axis stabilization for it.

Just a heads up if anyone else is interested in the new RX. It works great, BUT it is not 100% compatible with the 2801 TX. You can get it to work good, but you need to do some tinkering. There is no way to adjust your throttle curves, and you change modes in the radio to do a setting, then swap to a different mode to fly. No throttle curves is a drag but the thing that I do not like is you can not get THold to work in anything other than normal mode, so if you crash in idle up you need to flip 2 switches to shut it down, also the tail does not hold as well as the stock RX. I am hoping it will help me out with inverted hovering, and for days like today where it is raining out and I can float around in the living room and kitchen with out making a mess.

It works good as you can see here. Not me but this guy has both versions.
