Anything I need to know? Tips? Things to look out for?

The heli is used but I know the guy and he can build and has hardly flown it.

60% of the time, it works every time!

The N5 is pretty much bullet proof, the only things worth checking if the heli has not done much flying is obviously the rear engine bearing. The belt might also be worth a quick check but the belt used in the N5 is excellent so it's pretty much set the tension and go fly.

The Orange 'Bando' type belts have a tendancy to expand and contract with weather changes requiring reqular adjustment but the belts Matt uses are excellent.

Might be worth checking the mast locking collar as the early batches had a machining error causing them not to tighten up fully but if he's had it a while it probably will have been checked.

Engine alignment might also be worth a quick check as a misaligned engine can cause maingear strippage!

Other than that just a simple check over the build and thats about it.
