    The motor pinion has a good solid lock in with the main gear, no sign of wearing down, I really don't think it is that... The meshing between the auto-rotation gear and the tail belt drive bear...

    Very dangerous and wrong, a LIPO can go at any time, granted abusing them makes it more likely, but don't assume your lipo is safe just because you don't puncture it. Often times most lipos go while...

    I am setting up my rig on a 450, I don't think nimbleness is really much of an issue, if you really want it safe you can use expo and such to really mush it out and make it docile, even more so if...

    I learned on helis before I ever touched a plane, it's been a little while since I flew one but I am confident. On that note I am forever glad that I chose helis first, made planes crazy easy :).
