Just finished a rebuild and first test flight after my first crash of the Rave 450.
I've had this model for about 1 year and have about 100 flights. This was my first crash and not a mechanically related issue - but an orientation issue after being distracted.
Anyway, just want to say, this is one nicely designed model and appreciate the spare replacement parts that come in the bag, which will be helpful for any future crashes.
I finished the rebuild last night and retested - I was amazed the heli. was virtually trimmed out and ready to go. Also owe that to the fact that the crash was not horrible and most of the links were still in good shape, so my settings were almost spot on.
I also tried the CY 350mm blades - I was using rotortech before - the CY are smoother.
Anyway, was very happy to see how well the heli. flew today after the repair. About $100 bucks later, she is kicking butt.
Finally, the quality of the replacement parts are awesome! No issues.
Good Stuff CY!! I enjoy this model very much.
