I'm sure it'll be a great heli. Been flying my 520 for a year and a half and it's been solid. You'll probably get a lot of comments that say why buy that when you can get a Trex etc, but if you like it but it.

When I decided to go nitro again I bought used. They suck as far as resale value now so there are some amazing deals to be had.

For an onboard glow igniter, Gaui has one that is only about $18. That's much less than the competition and it's been working great on my N5. Can't think of any reason to spend more for a push glow etc.

I doubt that, Ive spent hours on belt search. The rjx 630 xl can work, i got a bando 630 6 mm and that was too wide. I think the logo belt is longer.
Ok. I owned both at the same time and only kept one belt in my spares and used it on both. Heck, when I sold my O550 it had a Logo 500 belt on it because when the O550 first came out (I preordered the O550 before it was released) it had a crappy neoprene belt on it and the Logo was Kevlar and lasted much longer. IIRC the Logo belt is a few mm shorter, but it works fine. Ready heli lists it as a 608XL, do a search, I'm not the only person who used the Logo belt on the Outrage 550, it was pretty common when they first came out with the crappy belts that would break every dozen flights or so for no reason.

When they put on those outfits and went out at a male dominated event to have people take pictures with them they objectified themselves to be judged. They weren't there as people, they were there as eye candy.

Don't be a fool and criticize the use of pretty girls to sell products. Just look at every beer commercial. What do you see? Yup, some pretty girls hanging all over a guy drinking the manufacturer's brand of beer. I really don't think pretty girls like guys who get drunk all the time and have beer bellies anymore than they like RC. Sex sells!

Avant girls might be the dumbest thing ever. Those girls are seriously hot, and every single one of them spent their time at IRCHA thinking that we are all losers playing with toys. RC is woman repellant, getting a bunch if hot girls in skimpy outfits to stand around for pictures is just pathetic.

I guess it's good advertising for you since there will be dozens of pictures of some girls ass with Avant on it plastered around, but it is still pathetic.

You may want to look at the setup on the Compass Odin. It uses an electric fan for cooling rather than the regular fan on the crank. Everything I've read is that it works great. I'm sure you could adapt it to your heli, or use it as inspiration to make your own.Nick Crego

If you own anything but a Bergen and the older MA stuff, you can't take the "Buy American" stance on helis. Everything else comes from overseas. The lack of a US Distro is one of the largest things holding me back from pulling the trigger on one of these. I hate owning a heli with only a single source of parts.

I don't know for sure that I am going to buy one, I'm also considering a Helibug conversion, but it would be crazy not to consider all the options when thinking about dumping money into a new heli.

Just do a search, there's a couple posts on here about it, or you can see it on rjxhobby.com.

It looks like a pretty awesome heli. There's a great Youtube video of it doing 3d, it looks nothing like a gasser in the air, it is obviously much lighter and more nimble. I keep going back and forth on it, I really like gassers, but buying this one with a relatively unknown engine, from a manufacturer with no US presence feels like I'm taking a risk. I had an X50 a few years back, and it was hands down the best flying flybarred 50 I've flown, and had a lot of really cool features. Assuming that the airframe is perfect, the only real drawback I see to the RJX is that there is no pull start available. I loved having the pull start on my gassers, it was a large part of why I like them.

What is up with RJX? I'm interested in their Gasser, and registered on their website last week. I still haven't been approved to access it. Now I go to their site, and it is completely down.

I understand the need to register, but making someone wait forever for approval is ridiculous. Do they not want me to buy one of their helis?

I agree 100%. I love my 550, packs are cheap (I fly Zippys, and they rock), and the performance is awesome. But, the original tail pulley was a joke, the ball links are junk, and the tail belt breaking is just ridiculous. After the first few flights I decided that I wasn't going to fly it anymore until the new tail pulleys came out because I didn't like the way the stock pulley wobbled and was wearing the belt. Luckily a fellow RR member made me a new pulley out of aluminum that solved the problem, and also cut way down on belt wear so it didn't just sit from Feb when I got it until a month or so ago when they finally came out with the new pulley. Now I've replaced all the links, so the slop came out of the head, and it is an amazing heli.

However, if I had realized the issues that I had were happening (they weren't widely known when I bought the heli), I would not have bought it, and if I hadn't gotten the custom tail pulley made for me I would have gotten rid of it by now at a huge loss just to be rid of it. With those things sorted out, it's a FANTASTIC heli, perfect size, ridiculous power, cheap packs, and cheap parts. It still has issues like the junk bearings in the grips (or is it the grips not being made right to fit the bearings?), but for the most part, it's awesome, and my favorite heli. It's still got that god awful canopy that I'm convinced was designed by a blind man, but it is a great flier that is even better now that I put a V-bar on it. I'm now planning a Logo 500 purchase to go with it since they use the same packs and this is such a great size for a heli.

Basically, I had planned on buying the Velocity, and decided that I'm going to wait for them to get beat on for a while to see what issues it has. COmbined with the high price reported on, it's just not worth it for me to get in at the beginning. Their helis fly awesome, though.

What about me? My profile has a G5 and 550 as well. I'm going to be pissed if I'm an Outrage sponsored pilot and I've been paying retail all this time!

If that is the price, they've lost me. I've been planning on buying one, although not from the first batch, there have been enough issues with the 550 that I won't buy another first run Outrage heli. I guess I'll wait and get one when they start to show up on the used market and I'll keep flying the best kept secret in glow 50s, the Knight 3d.

The Velocity isn't any closer than any other stacked frame heli with mixing arms on the grips. My point is that there are limited options when it comes to heli designs at this point, and if you take away to canopy, you'd take away most of the "clone" aspect of the Frenzy.

I do know one thing, I own every other Outrage, and I will own that one as well.

Don't thank me, I'm not agreeing with YOU, I'm just stating my observations. You're not handling yourself very well in these discussions, so don't take it as me being on your side, and being an rrProfessor only means I waste a lot of time on the computer.

FYI, I am friends with John Beech, and I've spoken with him on the phone about this. He is absolutely correct about stealing, I just don't see this particular airframe as being stolen beyond the canopy. I really wonder if this discussion would be taking place if it came with a different canopy.

All this discussion lately has made me take a really close look at this heli. I've come to the conclusion that if it had a different canopy, nobody would be bitching about it being a clone or not. Take a look at the mechanics, it's no closer to a Vibe than any number of other helis. The head uses the same design as any number of other helis, it's not unique to the Vibe (although the way the flybar cage is molded is obviously the same), the tail is nothing like it, it's essentailly the same as a Raptor, the drivetrain is a mishmash of Raptor and the same belt tail drive setup that countless other helis use, and the front radio tray is like a 600N. The frame shapes are similar, although with differences.

Basically, as I see it, yes, it's similar (and intentionally so), but if they were aiming for the Vibe they missed the target by a wide margin aside from the canopy. There are plenty of other helis that are cloned a lot more than this one, and the thing that seems to be setting people off on it is the canopy.

Just my 2 cents. Fly what you like, I'm sure I'll try a Frenzy at some point, it looks like they put together a nice package, although not as nice as some others. The thing that really sells it is the low price, not the airframe.

I've gotta say, no, I wouldn't. Black or silver is good enough for me, I think the colors look stupid.

Now colored aluminum parts, I'm up for that. I'd love to have a heli with all the metal anodized Red.

It could be 2 things. First, you need to make sure that the swash is completely level throughout the travel with no interaction. Beyond that, the head phasing is probably causing the issue.

On most helis with adjustable phasing, you will see a ring that has 2 pins on it that is held by set screws on the main shaft. You loosen those screws and rotate the ring to adjust the phasing. What I would do is rotate the head so the flybar is in line with the boom, and adjust that ring so the balls on the inner and outer ring of the swash are in line with the flybar and boom. Go fly, and you'll find that the tendency is reduced or eliminated, any interaction that remains can be tuned out by making fine changes to the alignment of that ring.

I have heard that it is actually a clone of the Airskipper (not Airskipper II which is basically a Vibe). So last generation.
Oh yeah, they're identical.

People don't post the negative things publicly because of the attack dogs that come out when negative things are posted. Post something negative, and there is a group of 3-4 guys who will call you every name in the book while questioning your ability to think.

If you want another opinion, I found QWW to have excellent service. In fact, I can't think of another company that has treated me better than QWW. Jon and Irwin really went out of their way to solve any issue that came up, and were quick to answer questions.

I've built a few of their helis, and I reviewed the Hardcore electric (about the same size as the T-rex 600) in Rotory a few months back, and made a pretty good sized post on here as well. That Hardcore was a very nice flying heli, stable, solid, and well built. It wasn't a 3d monster as the weight was high, but it was very powerful, and flew well.

I've had all 3. Of them, I liked the Vibe the best, then the Xtreme, then the 600N. The Vibe and Xtreme just fly better than the 600N. The 600N requires constant attention, where the Vibe and X50 lock in and go where you point them. Flying wise, the Vibe and X50 are pretty much identical, but the quality on the Vibe is better. Everything on it fit perfectly, and worked perfectly.

The X50 has/had some issues with the quality of the metal in the head, and the flybar seesaw isn't/wasn't designed properly so it didn't have enough material in it to allow a screw to have enough threads into the metal to hold it securely. The solution was to leave the screw somewhat loose and red locktite the crap out of it to get it to stay in. RJX claimed that it was normal, and how all heads designed with the flybar seesaw through the center of the head are, but I've had numerous helis with the same design flybar, and none of them are that way.

That said, I know they're constantly updating the kits, so that issue may be taken care of by now, mine was a kit from the beginning of this year. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Xtreme, but I'd be mindful of that potentially weak area.

It's an interesting heli. If you go to their page you can download the build manual. It's got some parts similar to a T-rex, but it's not the same. The fan is on double collets, It uses an A-arm type elevator link, that strange engine mount design (looks better than the 600N engine mount to me), and the frame setup doesn't use a baseplate, it appears that you can drop the engine with the pipe on it without removing any other components. Also, the front radio tray setup is nice as well.

Other than that, the head and tail look identical to the T-rex, and it looks like it's got the same hollow paddles with stickers.

Looks nice, we'll see if they get a US distributor and what the price is like. From the way it's worded on their page, it sounds like it comes with the electronics, but the manual shows it just like every other heli, with no electronics included.

Some of us prefer to build to a slightly higher level.
That's complete horse $#it, and if you don't know it, it's because you've been out of the hobby since the age of the dinosaurs. I'll add to JA's list of helis that I've built without a single part being filed or modified:

Vibe 50 - My grandmother could build it, everything is perfect, if you just shake the parts out of the box onto the table odds are they will fall together on their own. Best build I've ever had.
600N
600E
T-Rex 500
T-rex 450 SE
T-Rex 450 SEv2
Audacity Pantera
Beam E4
Hirobo Evo 50
Hirobo Freya
Hirobo Freya Evo
Raptor 30
Raptor 50
Raptor 90
MA Spectra G

I guarantee you that you don't build to a higher standard than me, you are just building kits that are manufactured to a lower standard than the ones I am building. Yes, there are other kits that need working on, my RJX Xtreme 50 needed a few things sanded and filed, my Predator Gassers all had to be messed with, so did my Century Hawk Pro. I've also built some of the helis you listed that you said required grinding and fitting, and you are right on a few of them, the Nexus did need some to get it together, and a bunch more to get it to fly right, and the Ergo I built needed a couple things messed with to go together (I forget what, it's been over a decade since I touched an Ergo), but we are talking about helis that haven't existed since the mid 90s. Things have advanced, and there's not a whole lot of helis out there that don't fit together perfectly out of the box, and work well without mods. Yes, things can generally be improved, but what we see on the majority of the builds and posts on here is NOT what happens in the industry at large.

FYI, the Quick Hardcore I built was damn near perfect. There were still a few things to be messed with, but they were minor, and the vast majority of it was dead on.

Why would the review make anyone angry? I thought you made it sound like a very nice heli, albeit one with some tolerance and packing issues. It's really unfortunate, Irwin has always been very good and fair with me, although I choose to fly other helis than the ones QWW produces, my experiences with the crew at QWW (not the field reps) are such that I would consider them in the future.

Also, I would say that you could always file a dispute with your credit card company if the refund doesn't come through as promised. You've got the evidence to back up your side of the dispute.

I forget what heli it was on, but I had the same issue where it would drop out on a fairly regular basis on something. What I did was put a little heat shrink on the mainshaft to keep it from coming down. It worked great, was lighter than a coller, and also didn't reduce swashplate tilt like a collar might.Nick Crego

I have also noticed that a second main shaft collar would be a good idea because when I turn my RC on, the servos go over and the wash-out unit does drop out the pins. A second collar would stop the swash going to far down. I have set the head up so that -10 still leaves 5mm of pin in the wash-out hub, but the servos over drive that point until the 2.4 turns on properly.
You need to rebind the receiver after you setup the heli, that will keep the servos from dropping and binding like that. Putting a second collar on it will only bind them every time you switch on, you're better off solving the problem.

Thank you, I spent enough time in school to know the definitions of both words, and while I agree that they are both used correctly, the point that you missed is the application. You are discussing these things like they are people, or important historic items and effects. We are discussing toy helicopters, go to a GI Joe toy forum, those guys are discussing the same things we are, and I bet you'd think that someone who's taking it as seriously as you are was ridiculous.

If anything, this discussion saved the thread. This should have never been started in this forum, sale items go in the classifieds forum at the end of the listing. Even so, threads don't always go the direction the starter intended, and this one evolved into a "what's good and bad about the RJX" thread.

I don't understand the lack of tact with some of these people who are attacking the X50 in its own forum
First, what tact? We're talking about an inanimate object, a toy helicopter. It's no different than saying that the slinky you bought wouldn't go down more than 2 stairs before stopping (why did all of my slinkys do that instead of going all the way down like in the commercial?) I swear, some people need to get some perspective on these things, you sound like we're talking about one of your family members. It's a toy for Christ's sake.

Second, where should people discuss (attack just doesn't' seem right, Nazi germany attacked Poland, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor) the shortcomings of a helicopter? The place to do it is in that helicopter's forum. Do it elsewhere and MR will just move it here.

People having issues with the design of a helicopter in no way diminishes the one you own. Don't take it personally, if you like it, awesome, what is posted here doesn't change that or make it fly worse. If anything, posting the problems in a forum with a responsive manufacturer only serves to improve the breed.

That PDF is BS. When I had my Xtreme, the first seesaw stripped out on the second day I flew it, and the replacement kept coming loose even with red locktite until I put an excessive amount of red in there. All because the design is poor and the screws can't be torqued down without making the seesaw bind. Contacting RJX, I was told that there was nothing that could be done about that, it's the nature of that kind of seesaw design, and all heads with the seesaw in the middle are like that.

BS. Sitting in my shop right now are a Spectra with a Tempest head and a Vibe 50, both of which have the same seesaw design, and both of which I can crank down on without binding, and without the crutch of goobering it up with red locktite. The tolerances on that section of the head are horrible, and the quality of metal in the seesaw is substandard at best. The rest of the heli was great, and it flew very well, but I don't like being lied to by the distributor and told that all heads of that design are the same way when it's easily proven to be untrue.

I have friends on Runryder like Inkspot (who owns a Vibe 50) and others who have flown both birds and stated that the X50 is a better performer.
Uhh.. Yeah. Right. Maybe you should ask Inkspot about that again, we were discussing this on Wed when he dropped by and went flying.

I've owned both, and the Vibe flies pretty much the same as the RJX wiht the same setup, although I found the Vibe to be a bit smoother (To be fair, with tuning, I'm sure the RJX could be made to fly exactly the same, JR just hit on a perfect setup the first try). Both fly great. However, the quality of the 2, and the robustness of the design is no contest. The Vibe is much better, although the RJX does build lighter. Personally, I'll take the wide parts availability, and the more stout design of the Vibe any day.

If you want to keep a large filtered setup, you can look at picking up the snorkel and filter setup from the Audacity Pantera. It would require a hole like you made (although smaller), and the snorkel tube is airfoil shaped. In testing it's been fine with 90 sized engines and doesn't block much airflow. Just an idea, I wouldn't think of running it the way you have it, it nearly completely blocks teh flow of air to the head.

On plumbing fuel tanks with a header. Hook up the main tank to the header, then the header to the engine.

In the original build thread I did on this heli, QWW said that they had ordered shielded bearings and were sent these accidentally. But since they didn't effect the performance they were still used. From looking at other QWW helis, it seems about 50% of them have shields. Personally, I wouldn't have a huge problem using the unshielded bearings, that area doesn't really get dirty on gas and electric helis. I would have a problem with them on a glow heli.Nick Crego

Got a package from Quick a few days ago with a replacement gear, fin and spindle to get the Hardcore back in the air. They are VERY quick to respond with parts and assistance, really, I couldn't be happier with their service. Anyways, I got the replacement parts installed, and today we got a break in the constant rain so I was able to go out and give it another flight. I'm happy to report that the replacement gear held up fine, and I had a very successful flight.

The heli really flies well, although it is heavy as discussed before. It's really not putting any strain on the batteries, and with the current config (10s 5000mah 10c packs), it'll fly for a good 9 minutes or so of 3d with the pinion I have on it, and with a smaller pinion, even longer for a sport flier. I'm not sure what's going to happen with the heli once I'm done working with it, but it'd be interesting to experiment with different packs in it. It should be fine on a good set of 10s 2500 packs, and lose nearly a pound in the process. I have a set of 4s 2200 packs coming for my Beam that I could run in a 12s config on the Hardcore, and with the available gearing, it should work very well while increasing performance and losing a significant amount of weight.

Just got back from Minneapolis, so I figured I'd start typing while I unwind on the couch.

The kit comes in a big brown box, with everything bagged as assemblies. At first glance, it appears that it is bagged step by step, which improves the build quite a bit since you don't have to go digging for screws etc. However, on starting the build, I realized that while the big pieces are bagged together, the screws are hit or miss. Some of the screws are in the bag, some are in the hardware case, it's easier than the 20cc, but still not at the level of a lot of the competition where everything is bagged together as it comes up int he manual. One issue I had with the 20cc I built was that it was impossible to find the screws when I needed them. I'm happy to report that on this one the hardware kit was much better organized, and easy to find what I was looking for.



Overall Quality

I found the machining on this heli to be very nicely done, it is a big improvement over the 20cc, and it's obvious that there are improvements being made. For the most part, the heli went together with no mods, with a few exceptions that I will note as I type this. Unfortunately, there is no manual for this heli. Contacting QWW about this I was told to build the heli using the manual for the Superfly, which is basically the same heli, except the size of the mainshaft and the head, which I built using the Bat 50 manual. I'm working with them to improve the manual, as well as the issues I've found, so we should see things improving. The build wasn't tough, if the manual was like Align, TT, Hirobo, etc then any idiot could get it together, but as it sits, there are steps missing, fastener sizes unlisted etc, so it takes a skilled builder to get it together. A lot of the time when people have problems and mention it on this forum, the response comes back that they need to follow the manual. I've now built 2 QWW helis, and in my experience, if you just follow the manual, you'll end up with extra parts sitting around that you were never told to put on, and your guesses on fasteners may or may not be correct. Like I said above, I'm making a list of things, so we should see this improve for people building this heli in the future.


Lower Frames

The first step in the build is to get the landing gear together, and build the battery compartment that sits at the bottom of the frame. This can be built to different heights to accommodate different size packs. In the case of the packs that QWW sent with the heli, I used the longest spacers which gave the right amount of room for them. One of the plates was missing a hole for one of the spacers, to correctly place it, I clamped the 2 bottom carbon plates together (they are identical) and drilled the hole. The top part of the frame has metal blocks attached in this step to fasten the top frames to.


Top Frames

Next up is assembling the top frames. Again, these pretty much fell together following the instructions. No mods were needed, and it builds up to a very solid structure. You start out by assembling one half of it attached to the bottom frames, getting the servos in, bearing blocks, etc, then mate the other half. A couple of notes here. The manual isn't specific about which side of the frame the servos should be installed in, and because of this, after had it built I had to pull the rear servo to put it inside the frame to give a straight shot with the pushrods. Not a big deal, but it would have been nice if the manual was more clear. On assembling the frames, I was missing the long screws that hold the top frames to the tail transmission frames, off the top of my head, they are 3x18mm bolts, so a trip was made to the LHS for them. If you are building your heli using this as a guide, install the anit-rotation guide here before you install the rear servo, once it's in, you can't get to the bolts. Unfortunately, I discovered this after the heli was built, since the manual never tells you to install the anti-rotation guide.

A couple of things I'd like to highlight on the mainframes/bearing block setup. You can see how the frames are attached, it builds up to be a very rigid structure. I've also included a picture of the main bearing block/motor plate. This is a very stout piece, and I like that it holds the motor and mainshaft/gear in alignment, with no possibility of flex. Very nice design, and it's things like this that show an attention to detail, even if that attention costs it in the weight department.

While assembling the main frames with the 2 halves apart, you install the motor and set the mesh, as well as install the main gear assembly. The motor is mounted using 4 screws, and is a huge motor, much larger than the one in the 600e. My manual just has you put the motor in and set the mesh, and torqueing it down to hold it, but QWW feels that the gear failure I saw was due to the motor shifting in flight when I was really loading it up. They suggested that I use "Nord Lock" washers on it to prevent that from happening in the future. For those unfamiliar (I know I was), Nord Locks are a 2 part washer with serrations in them that bite into the bolt and mounting surface to really lock the part down. The manual I built from did not say to use those washers in the motor mount, so I didn't, but they have updated the manual to reflect it.

The Main gear assembly is a pretty standard piece. I was extremely disappointed to find that it does not drive the tail in autos. The advantage is that the tail doesn't rob from the head in autos, but the disadvantage is that I can't think of any other heli of this size that doesn't dive the tail, and it kills the fun of autos for me, as I do like to do inverted autos and the like, and the flip or roll over just doesn't work out without a driven tail. It's really too bad that they chose not to include a driven tail. Other than that, the assembly is standard, the gear appears to be of good quality, and was nice and true, with the holes all in the correct places etc. I've got a new gear on the way to see if I can strip it in the air again, so we'll see how that works out when I get to abuse the heli some more.


Tail

The tail included with my kit is their new torque tube tail. It appears to be a very well done, solid design, and certainly looks great. A couple of things strike me as different about the torque tube. I'm used to torque tube tails having the metal couplers on the tube, and the cups for them being on the output an dinput shafts. The Hardcore has it opposite that. I dont' see that as an advantage or disadvantage, just different. The torque tube has a nice, but heavy reusable bearing support system as pictured. It's overdone, but it's certainly not something that's going to fail. it is a nice metal unit with O-rings on it, and the bearings internally, and clamps onto the tube itself with a collet type mechanism. Very cool, but again, heavy compared to the competition. The kit came with 2 of them, however, the bearings in 1 of them were notchy, so I elected to only use 1 since that's what so many other kits use, and I saw no vibes or ill effects from that decision. The tube itself is just a carbon rod with the ends pinned and glued on. It's a common design well proven on other helis, and lends itself to easy repairs since you can often find arrow shafts or the like to replace the tube itself, and move the ends and bearings over after a crash.

The tail box itself is a very nice one piece unit with a removable side plate to allow the output shaft to slide in. The input shaft is secured by a set screw, and can be shimmed to adjust gear mesh. The gears in mine were meshed well right out of the box, and all the set scres and things already had locktite on them. The gears appear to be pretty heavy duty machined delrin, similar in design to those found at the back of the T-rex 600, while the front gear is replaceable for different tail ratios and runs off a counter gear up to a set of gears similar to those found in the rear. I was left to build the tail section without the aid of a manual, as the torque tube system is new, and I had to dig through a number of manuals to reference the tail hub assembly. It all went together well, though, the tail is a thrust bearinged unit, and works smoothly. There are a couple of area that required adjustment here. First, the pitch change slider's ball sit's in a brass ring on the pitch change arm that the servo moves. As it came out of the box, they didn't fit together at all. A few minutes of work with an Xacto on the brass ring got the ball to seat and move smoothly. This area causes me concern with regards to wear, and I'll keep an eye on it, generally I see delrin used in the same area, the brass is a unique decision. Second, the tail box would not fit on the boom without major grinding. First I took all the anodizing off the boom, and I could barely force it on. Then I went to work inside the tail case to remove material to get the box on, finally after 30 minutes or so of removing small amounts and trying it, I got it to go on with some force. I notified QWW of the issue, and Irwin checked out a few cases and booms he had on hand and said that he didn't have the problem with any of the ones he had, and after looking at a picture of the tail case I have, determined that mine was a preproduction case.

Head

The head on the heli is the standard QWW head, same as on the 20cc gasser, and very similar to the X-cell, and Century heads. The design has been around forever, and flies well. A couple notes here, on the 20cc I built, the bearings were not sheilded on the flybar seesaw. They are shielded on this one. Also, I had a number of parts missing. Bearings, spacers, ball links, bolts, a bunch of stuff. QWW was very responsive when it came to getting the parts to me, but come on, we've all read that they've been doing this for 20 years, they should have figured out how to ship a kit without head pieces missing by now. I also had the same issue I had on the 20cc with the mxing arms binding. As they come out of the box (and assembled according to the instructions), the mixing arms just have 2 3x7x bearings with a bolt going through them to the grips. Not a good design, you either tighten them up and cause binding, or don't have binding and lack security. I did some experimenting, and discovered that replacing the bearings with flanged ones, and putting a 3x5mm spacer in between them allows the mounting bolt to be tightened without any binding. I passed that on to QWW, and they are looking at it for future kits. If you have a QWW kit without the spacer in the middle and standard bearings, it's worth the effort to make the assembly work correctly. Those are pretty big issues, but easily fixed, and I believe that QWW is working on them for the future. For some reason, I don't have any pictures of the head, if I feel motivated, I may take some and add them here.


Finishing up

From here it's just making the links and mounting the electronics. Electronics wise, there's a ton of room. I mounted the ESC on the bottom plate at the back of the heli, and everything else up front. The links that are included with the heli are trash. I'm sorry, but that's the way it is, the holes for the rods are drilled off center, and 90% of them are too loose right out of the bag to be secure on the balls. I didn't trust them to even spool up the heli on most of the controls, and substituted links from my parts box for them. Do yourself a favor if you build one of these helis and just take the link bag and throw it right in the trash and invest in something better, I've literally never seen links as bad as these. Also, the manual says that some of the links may be 2.3mm, and some may be 2.6mm, and that's what I found as well. Why the inconsistency? It gives one the feeling that they are clearing out stock and throwing whatever they have in the box, and it cheapens the experience. They work fine, but it would inspire more confidence in the buyer if it were consistent. The instructions show the tail servo mounted up front, and there are parts to make a bellcrank at the rear of the fuse (a-la 600N), however, the instructions never say to put the assembly on, and there are not enough parts to make the rods necessary to do it. I dug into my parts box again, and came out with a boom servo mount from a Predator, which I used with the stock tail pushrod and a set of Align links to make the tail pushrod. At this point, I realized that the manual was never going to tell me to put the boom supports on, so I went to work studying the pics. It shows them mounted to the rear of the frame, however, there is no cross member in that area, so they are flexy and not doing any work there. So, I mounted them to the lower frames on one of the metal blocks that holds the frames together. They are VERY strong and stable there, I'd recommend doing the same, even if there was a crossmember where the pictures show to mount the struts.


Final Radio Setup

With all the links setup and everything centered, I was only able to get +- 6 deg out of the head. It was obvious why, the pins coming from the bottom of the headblock into the washout were too long and severly limiting the swash travel. Whipping out the Dremel, I took a few mm off the bottom of them, and quickly had +-11. I could take more off and increase that and still have plenty of rod engaged in teh washout, but +-11 is fine for me on this heli. With the head at +-11 collective, and +-8 on cyclics, I do get some binding when it is below -8 deg or so with max cyclic due to the design of the swash, but it is minor, and I stay out of the corners, so I've left it.

That's the build. I'm going to bed now, I'll try to take some pics to fill in the blanks tomorrow, and write some thoughts as well. In all, I'm very impressed with the heli. It went together easily (although not nearly as easily as the major name competition), and is a sturdy heli. It flies well, and although heavy, is very capable. The flight you saw above, along with some setup, only took 1400mah out of the 5000mah packs, so it has long flight times as well, even on relatively inexpensive packs. I'll post the data from my Eagle tree tomorrow along with some more pics and stuff, I'm tired from writing the book in this post!

Maybe you don't enjoy building, but I do, and it's how I get rid of stress. Putting a heli together isn't a huge time involement if spread over a month or so 15 to 20 minutes at a time, and it's a great way to calm down before bed.Nick Crego

Didn't tach it, but I used the biggest pinion they gave, which calculates out to 1950 max. I'd say it's in the 1800 range, I generally run my helis in the 2000-2100 range, but this one does pretty damn good at 1800.Nick Crego

Quick Hardcore review and video
Hi guys, this is just a short one, I'll give details on the build etc later. After I finished up the 20cc, QWW appreciated the feedback I was able to give them, so they sent me the Hardcore electric heli, along with motor, batteries, and ESC so I could go through it and do something similar. Once again, no cost to me, same as before.

I got it built up, found numerous things that weren't quite right, but mostly the build went smoothly, much better than the 20cc, it's a pretty nice design. I will do a write up on the build etc later, just thought I'd start with the flight.

Finished it up this morning, and did a quick 30 second hop in the yard to check tracking and make sure it was flyable before going to the field. Got out to the field, did a little trimming, then some mild aerobatics with it, flips, loops, rolls, inverted hovers, some piros etc, and some tic tocs. It flies very well, although it also flies heavy, as it weighs a good 2lb more than a normal 50 sized glow heli with the same disc area. It tracks well, has responsive cyclics, is a little less powerful than a 50 glow, but more powerful than a stock T-Rex 600e, I can only imagine how it would fly if the weight was comparable to a 600e. Setup was the recommended power system and batteries, JR 7703d/8700, JR 8301s on cyclic, AR7000, stock tail blades and NHP Razor 600 Carbons pulling +-11 deg of pitch.

Unfortunately, the flight ended abruptly after 3:30 when the main gear stripped during tic tocs. The mesh was correct, the teeth on the gear failed. I was loading it up at the time, and the power was good with very little bogging, but it just couldn't cope with what I was asking of it. Here's the video, it's nothing special or exciting, but it gives you a taste of how it flies, complete with an emergency auto with zero headspeed.

OK, so many people have had 100s of flights on theirs without the mainshaft snapping, but that doesn't change the fact that Holzback's snapped. So what's going to be done about it? This is clearly a defective part.Nick Crego

Nothing unique or new about it, my Predators all use a pin with a set screw through the middle, with set screws holding it. In fact, I think the Predator method is better, the set screws hold it from the side with no danger of bending the pin, and easier access once the heli is assembled. IIRC, the old X-Cells did it the same way as well.

Looks like a great heli, nothing particularly new about it, though.
