I love all the gold anodized parts.They go good with all the carbon fiber the Pro has.
Right now I am running a Hitec 6985 for the collective and Hitec 635's on the cyclics.The 635's are a little short on torque for my taste but they were in it when I bought it.I do not do anything crazy with it yet so so far they are doing the job.The rotor head on it is the X-Cell aftermarket Pro II all metal head which is more suited to FAI than 3D so I have mostly been just flying it around enjoying how smooth it flies.
I have been trying to decide what to replace the 635's with.I have thought of going with the Hitec 6975's.I also may see what JR has to offer for servos.The gyro is using the Futaba 9254 that comes with the GY401.

my "new" Ergo 90

Ok here you go Alex! my "new' Ergo 90. I have Hitec 5625MG on everything except the throttle. Just a standard JR 537 on that. I flew it last weekend. I'm going to put a GY611, and a Revolution base loaded whip antenna in it I think before I fly it again. By the end of the day (Saturday) I had it flying pretty well. I got a REALLY scary radio hit that pretty much made me soil my drawres! I couldn't even bring myself to try it again on the Sunday. I had a carbon fiber rod strapped to the antenna to stiffen it that I believe caused the "hit". I think I'll be OK after the Revolution.
It was a little rough when I got it but well worth the trade. It's a little windy on the Farm where I fly but this ship handles the wind no problem! I'm a happy camper now.

Looks good!! It must have taken ages to polish that aluminum... I'd rather fly than do that!! Now just post some pics with her in the air!!


Cheers

Don't forget that I have an aluminum wheel fefinishing business! The aluminum took about 3~4 hours to do. Not that bad! I didn't get any airborne pics last weekend but I will next time.

Hi,

Here are my current two machines. Predator 90 Carbon Max, and my Swift.

Swift is now running 515 Rotortechs with 7S e-moli cells. Neu 1907-1.5Y with Castle 45HV. Futaba 3151 on the swash with 401/9254 for the tail.

Trevor.

Here's the 90 flying!

I know you've been wanting to see your old 90 flying so here's a pic taken just a few min. ago. I changed the tail servo to a faster one, and made a few other adjustments. I also got the motor running sooo sweet now! I love this heli now!!! LOTS of power, the motor runs so smooth now, transitions very well too. The 90 is very stable and I got rid of the tail wag with the faster servo on the tail. It's almost totally perfect. The tail has a really minor vibration. I think I'll try a different pair of tail blades. Other than that this thing is really nice. I know it's an older model but it's good for me until I learn to fly better!

Hehe, yup! I won't fly it as much as my 30 Ergo because I'm scared to corkscrew it in. I picked up that Nexus to bash around too so I now have something that I won't cry about if I stuff it in. I need a lot more stick time. Once I'm more confident with the heli's then I'll fly the 90 more. Besides you're right about the fuel bill! The 90 really sucks it back in big huge gulps. Well worth it though the power to weight ratio is awsome! I can't believe how fast it will climb out.
