Finally got it all built and out the door to fly. I had to use the align 3g because my vbar sensor went bad.

Went for 80-70-80 t curve and pulled into a hover. Very stable, super smooth but touching the sticks led to big movements. I set it down and added 30% expo to elevator and aileron. Back to hover much better. Headspead is low and pullouts are meh

The tail is weird, it seems to have too much gain hovering and not enough while moving. I'm going to have to play with it some.

Cranked it up to a 100-80-100 curve and did some stationary flips. Flips were good, but seemed a little doggy, this might have to be a 100-100-100 setup with the stock motor if you want something nutty.

Motor was pretty warm on landing. I only babied it around for 4 minutes and it was pretty warm to the touch. I imagine it will cook eggs in the summer after 4 minutes of stick banging.

Wish I had more but the winds are 30 gusting to 40 right now so I have to fly in a tight space.

Edit - adding castle output

Took it out and paddled its little butt this morning. The 3g wants to drift sometimes and wobble a bit at others but the heli is solid and I'm not afraid to try anything from my normal routine. Cranked the headspead up a bit and it has good power now. I think I'm running a 100-90-100 curve. Flys like a jumbo sized rave FBL which is a good thing to me. Have some tuning to do on the tail still, it will not hold in hard popping flips. Overall I'm very happy.

Looks like an impressive piece of kit! I'm sure headspeed will be key...

4 minute timer. Castle keeps the time rolling until you clear the log so my first flight is before this

Everytime I run a castle in gov mode it blows up. Fixed endpoints is reliable and works well once you get it tuned.

Get rid of that zeal tape. Try a piece of spartan (I am using the spartan) or futaba tape and then strap down TIGHT. Do not double stack the tape. Use only a single piece.

My 3G flies awesome. I also have raised my tail gain considerably and had a very positive response. My tail gain is near 80-85 on a 9303 using gyro sens menu.
