Well I've been tossing the idea of anX5 for quite some time now and today Rotor Quest had them on for 20% off. I had no choice, I had to buy it.

Re: Gaui X5 Formula

Lots of sales going on over the last few months to fuel our hobby. Nice buy Jimmy. I bet there will be a Valentine's Day or Family day sale as well.

Re: Gaui X5 Formula

Been tough this winter Rick, the dollar is so crappy, this is the second sale I've been able to get something I really wanted. The nice thing is I have almost everything for the build so my budget for it should be good. I just need an Ikon unit when they become available.

Re: Gaui X5 Formula

I know what you mean about the lousy dollar. I have made my recent heli purchases either through the local sales or I have found some great deals in various forum classifieds. My X3 is ready for the maiden and I have some parts in transit to finish my Chase 360.

Re: Gaui X5 Formula

I bought 3 used Ikons. My G500 is also on the sidelines to be assembled. I just need the servos which are in transit and I want to get the Optipower Ultra-Guard 430 for redundancy.

Re: Gaui X5 Formula

This kit is quite easy to assemble. I'm really liking the layout, very easy to work on.

Re: Gaui X5 Formula

Now this is a very very nice bird, I finished the build of the kit with no issues. Everything was in the box and it actually comes with a manual.

Re: Gaui X5 Formula

I've decided to go with the carbon boom cover as well now, I really like the looks.
Still up in the air over motor choice though, probably go with the Scorpion 910 as the kit calls for though. About to give up on waiting for Ikon's fbl units though, really no stock for three months on them, kinda tells me there's trouble there as well.
