Great show... looong! Which suited my purposes perfectly, thanks guys and congrats for your (latest) 100th episode.

Glad James commented on the Perf Reg issue... there were many people that had issues with that vendor, myself included. I view them kind of how Chris might feel about the vendor he got his mini/micro DLG from.... just an FYI.

Just when you thought "they" knew everything about heli design, all kinds of new features are popping up.

Support for the servo shafts on the Mostro?

Wish I had time and money just to build these.

Rick, even that isn't a new idea. The Audacity Pantera has had servo shaft support for a long time, but I think the Mostro is the first time I've seen it on a direct-to-swash configuration.

Even then it's not new. Miniature had it on their Fury line way back when. In fact, when the Pantera was first released he didn't even sell the studs that went into the servos themselves. He only sold the bridges and you had to go buy the studs from Miniature Aircraft. It's a nice design that stabilizes the servo arms. Is it necessary? Dunno, I've had the same set of Futaba BLS272s on probably a dozen different machines with well over 1000 flights, most of which had direct to swash, and they don't have any noticeable slop. Still as good as new.

The thing that gives me the most pause on the Mostro is it is a completely new design. Too often those have a bunch of issues that are solved by the V2 a year down the road. I had a Goblin 700 from the initial shipment, and another from the 3rd and sold them because the batteries were a pain to change, the canopy was a pain to get on and off, they autoed poorly from the design of the original one way, and wobbled like crazy at low head speeds. Now here we are a year and a half later with the Competition shipping that addresses every one of the issues I had with the original. My Competition ships from Helidirect today and will be here tomorrow, I'm hoping that it really does fix those issues, I loved my Goblins aside from them.
