Nope, I was flying it on e-power, 330KV and 12S. The fuse was an RCA 800 size UH1B. Sorry, I edited the previous post, it was 16 lbs.

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

Wow great looking helicopter....
Could you post some pictures of how you connected mechanics to the tail torque tube?
That is always an interesting issue when fitting mechanics to the fuselage.

Thanks Gh and Jack......I agree, this Vario kit is pretty detailed all by itself and I am very happy that my Trex 600 HeliBug fit in it.......!
It does not look like there is much room in there but there is.....it just took some figuring out how to get it in there.

Gh....when I take it apart again I'll take some picture for you. The earlier pictures in this thread shows the main drive and tail drive assembly and connections that were needed to use Dr.Tim's Flex Drive.I had success with his flex cable setup on my JayHawk and decided to use this same thing on this project.

Almost there......!

Got you. I should have checked it up in more detail. I am familiar with Dr Tim's flex drive as I have one in my apache. Is there enough space in the rear for the "gentle bend" to get the flex drive in the rear...I would assume so....

Yes,
There is enough room to comfortably fit that flex drive in there. I think this system works pretty good.
