X5--Good Upgrades?
Been flying the X5 FES with GT5 for a month. I really like it. I slapped on some Edge FBL 523mm main blades and KBDD Tail Blades: it flies locked in and solid. Tracks through the sky better than any of my previous helis.

I have been looking at some upgrades that might address weak areas like:

CNC Main Gear--to reduce noise
Better Boom Supports?
More Rigid and Wider Landing Gear?

Have you upgraded anything on this heli that you felt was really worth the dough and not just bling? (Specifics)

Interested to hear what has been a worthwhile add-on?

Really the X5 doesn't need any upgrades. If you are looking to upgrade then the only thing I would upgrade would be the Main Gear and pinion.

I have tested the following on mine

X4 One Piece tail box

Helical main gear

I put the new style landing gear.

And the all aluminium boom supports.

However none of those are really necessary.

I'm eyeing up the landing gear and the boom supports as needing a little bit more.

I'm looking for landing gear that is wider and gets the tail out of the grass a bit more. And I would like boom supports that are stronger.

Any suggestions that would fit the bill here?
