Thanks mate, I am a bit of a gaui fan, if you couldn't tell and there is also a quad that didn't make that pic.

Hey Steve, is there a specific place for a build review as such?

Nah Dave.............Start up a new thread if you like in this sub forum and I'll make it a sticky.

Will be good reference material. :thumb:

Looks sweet, and BIG!

Just an observation and correct me if I am wrong, but are the landing skids on backwards?
You wouldn't have been the first person to have asked that question of the model mate, but that is how it is in the manual.

Cheers Dave.

Currently it has Dh 711 fbl blades on it and the DH stands for dominic hagele.LOL.

P.S. I won't have it flying for a couple of weeks, as I am waiting on some gear for it still.

Cheers Dave.

Great stuff Dave, I have my X7 sitting here ready to build, built the TDR over the weekend, it was first in line haha!

Interesting comment, have you tried one!!
The new Hirobo Embla is made by Thunder Tiger essentially in China but designed by Hirobo. Its a great machine as well, its number three on my list to be built after the X7!

Hey mate, glad to see you got an X7, as mentioned previously, you'll find the build very easy, parts just fit together so nicely and I had no issues with my kit, with having to force bit together etc.

I only had one little issue and it's detailed in my build thread.

Some also say that the manual isn't the best, but if you've built a few helis, you'll be able to sort it out.

It will be interesting to hear of your opinion on builds between the TDR and the X7.

Cheers Dave.

The TDR was a very nice build, its a simple low parts count heli. The manual was interesting though, really difficult being translated from German into English with a few imperfections that made it difficult to understand in places! Its a great thought with the TDR to think it was all machined by Jan himself essentially.
