I'm going to rip the guts out of this piece of junk and put it in something that's worth while. I'm so sick of the pot metal screw heads stripping I could spit. I'll never buy another Gaui again.

And God damn it, rc car hood pins have NO DAMN PLACE on a frigg'n heli. And another thing, the gear above the main does not line up to drive the tail gear at all, on this one or any. What a monstrous design flaw that is. The head is too damn big....it's the size of a 700. And the "formula" parts have gone backwards in quality from the older x5. The head wobbles on the frigg'n main shaft because the diameter of the formula head is too big......and cocks to the side. You can see it in the head button on spool down. I'm sick of this money pit.

Welp, I took everything out of this heli and put it where it belongs....in the trash....blades and all. Wasn't crashed or anything, just not serviceable. If I decide to buy something else, it's not going to be a pot metal heli. This heli was terrible and I'm sick of paying premium prices to these Asian companies that give me colorful sub par materials.

Bye bye Gaui!!! You ain't getting a another God damn dime from me.

It's kind of hard to tell from your posts. Do you or don't you like Gaui heli's?

I personally love my Gaui's. I can't say the screws are super or anything, but they are not as bad as you are making out. Maybe your tools aren't up to quality. Bad drivers can cause stripped screws.

Are you sure yours was assembled correctly? I have the X3, X5, and X7. And I don't see the problems you are describing.

Think Synergy and goblin is not just hype.
Sometimes you gotta switch it up. Now go get that heli out of the trash and send it to me.

I understan what you are saying. Gaui's quality management is very poor. And the main and counter gears are not aligned horizontaly. Canopy was need some heat tremtment to fit on the frame. Black gears makes wobbling noise until 20 or more flight.
