Well, the Kaos build officially started last night. I don't have any pictures of the build yet, only of the unboxing. I was too busy "building" to take pictures. :tongue

So far I'm very impressed. The quality seems top notch, and it has a real instruction manual. With English words even! :o

The only advice I have so far, is that if you choose to buy one of these you MUST have a covering iron and preferably a heat gun as well. The covering was fairly loose all over, but looks great after a few minutes with the iron and gun.

Is that what you think Butler is saying, or is that what YOU are saying? :)

Yes, I use the term "build" very loosely. That's why I said too busy "building". Imagine air quotes. :lol:

I do the same thing JPC. The only time it irritates me is when somebody complains about how hard it is to build an ARF :evil:

The one that made my head want to explode was the UM Stryker thread. Long story short the DX6i has a different channel output than any other JR/Spektrum radio and if you bought the UM Stryker then you needed to swap the aileron connections around to make it work on the DX6i. People were actually complaining that it wasn't really bind and fly at that point and that Horizon should sell two versions one for the DX6i and one for everything else.

Are people actually getting so lazy that swapping two servo leads is a big deal WTF
