Hey Guys,

I just put an order in for a X5 FES kit, getting a bit excited...will be using Vbar Pro+ Vbar gov., Edge 523's and 86mm tails. Will the 86mm tails be too long??

I'm planning on running HS at 2400 rpm.

Also is the CNC main slanted gear worth the extra cost? Curious on how much this gear reduces noise?

Thanks,

Brian

Will Edge 86mm tail blades fit on the X5?
Yes...I have also used 96mm egde tail blades on the X5 for tail authority at low head speeds.. like 1850RPM with 523edge blades.

With the 96mm tail blades they just nick the corners against the main blades when I really hammer on it.

The 86mm tali blades on the X5 is totally safe to use even with 523mm main blades and will give better tail holding power.

Cant say anything to the cnc main gear, this is the first I have heard of it Got a link?

Cheers,
Raven

Thanks for the info. I found the CNC main gear here:

http://www.clubheli.com/Gaui-X5-120...913_p_3973.html

It's a bit pricey, but it's machined. I'm currently flying a Rave Ballistic using a molded helical main gear, works great and is very quiet. But with the smaller helis with less power, I think the 'slanted gear' is less needed.

I'm sure somebody has tried it.
