Finally!! I love my 130, but that little heli is driving me crazy with maintenance. I have never had so many failed servos, stripped gears and strange problems in any of my helis in such a short time. When it flies, it is a ton of fun, but I just never know when something is going to start giving me problems. Its one thing when you crash and break something but my last few crashes have been the result of something stripping or breaking mid-flight.

I would love to just have it fly consistant, because it is a fun little heli... when it works

The C and D gears are the #1 failure point I've had. I've also broken too many main and tail blade grip ball links. wish there was a way to attach the ball links when they break off. I may end up with metal grips just because I've bought so many of the plastic ones. When it's flying, it's a lot of fun. overall I think the flights to crash ratio is really high and most of the ground incursions result in little to no damage, but it does break. It's a lot of fun when it's working right.

A little tougher canopy would be nice, and I wish you could buy the b and c gear separately instead of having to pay 12.49 for gears you don't need.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

If you go metal, you can. Xtreme sells each of the four gears individually, as a set of all four, set of just C/D, etc. Lynx is supposed to be releasing their metal gears this month and will probably offer them individually, as well.

The least of the problems I have had has to do with the plastic tail gears. I am looking forward to the MicroHeli 3 bearing supported tailboom. Without the 17,000+ rpm high speed whipping of the tailshaft either major or minor in intensity I think all the gyro's will work better with no vibration. And as a result a good tail performance improvement I would think and the ability to up the gain . The tail shaft needs badly a 3rd bearing to keep things as vibration free as possible. I like the idea of a shear point in the tail drive train.
I would even venture to guess the TT vibrations wallow out the D hole in the C gear.

My opinion only!!

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them
