Swanghobby.com reviews on HOBBYWING Pentium 40A Electric Speed Controller.






Die Hobbywing Regler sind ja gemeinhin bekannt und ber?hmt f?r ihr ausgesprochen herausragendes Preis- Leistungverh?ltnis. Wie man auf dem Foto sehen kann, kommt er ordentlich eingepackt in einer Antistatik Verpackung mit Anleitung. Allerdings sollte man sich nach M?glichkeit gleich noch die Programmierkarte dazu kaufen. Ist halt einfach komfortabler. Ansonsten Top Produkt f?r den Preis und die Liederung war auch super schnell. Empfehlenswert.

This ESC is a very nice product. High quality, powerfull, and durable. The acceleration is amacing, but the braking power is not as powerfull as i am used too. I ordered 2 of these, and boths orders were shipped after a week, and I recieved both after another week. Swang hobby is selling this ESC to the absolutly lowest price on the web, and the shipping is included. Thank you SWANG HOBBY.

OS Engine Review

I have brought some OS engine from swanghobby.com and seems it is very good and low shipping cost from Hong Kong.
OS Engines

First to introduce a mass-produced 4-stroke engine, an innovator in every phase of R/C engine production, O.S. also retains a tradition of craftsmanship that pays off in durability and power. Each new engine is the product of over two years of testing and design—and more than two generations of R/C engine experience.

I have brought a 91Hz from swanghobby.com

With back-to-back FAI world championships in 2005 and 2007, the 91SZ-H was a winner by anyone's standards. Now there's the 91HZ – a 91SZ-H redesigned with the help and advice of the world's top pilots. It offers the tuning ease and performance consistency of the multi-time world champion and design innovations that promote improved cooling, a tighter compression seal – and tuning ease!
The narrow profile of the heat sink head helps the 91HZ fit completely inside cooling shrouds without cutting or losing cooling power!
Two heat sinks – one on the head, another on the crankcase – allow airflow to carry away heat and maintain performance.
Better overall balance reduces engine noise and promotes smoother, stronger performance.
The new 61B carb takes consistency to the next level. Dependability features start with an insulating ring which prevents crankcase heat from affecting carb settings. A generous use of O-ring seals – two on the main needle, one on the rotor – prevents air leaks and power fluctuations.
In-flight control of the needle valve ensures smooth, consistent runs.

O.S.ENGINE MAX-50SX-H Ring Hyper 2 Stroke Engine very good.

Review on Chewing Gum Style Mini Camera

Swanghobby.com reviews on Chewing Gum Style Mini Camera.






I have the hi res version of this cam and it's not to bad not the greatest picture quality but quite suitable for shooting from your model. If you need a long record time you can power it throu the USB connector but not while conected to your computer. If you press the front button down it turnes into a WEBCAM but there are no drivers availble anywhere I could find. To make it easier to mount you can remove the clip from the back. Take off the 4 screws on the clip side and the clip is held on by 2 screws inside. note the cute tiny camera!

Copterx Helicopter Spare Parts

Question: Does CopterX Helicopter spare parts compatible to Align 450 spare parts?
In short, my personal experience has been excellent. Plug and play and the quality is just as good as the align unit.

I fly CopterX V2 tails on both my helis and they rock.when and if I ever trash my heads they will be replaced with Copterx as well.

i also have the copter x head and tail assembly on my trex 450 it rocks. so smooth. it came with ball link arms that go to the servo arm. i popped them off (lazy) stuck in the copter x and checked the screws for tight (all were very tight) and flew. very smooth.night and day to my sa head. i was worried as well if i shouldn't have spent money not knowing if quality was the same. but i'm impressed. i've got a new se coming with metal head and i'll compare and let you know if parts will swap around. should be here in a day or so.

I have brought the copterx spare parts at swanghobby.com , they are in Hong Kong and fairly cheap, most important, free shipping :)

Is CopterX 450 same as Align 450 Helicopter?

Many remote control toy fans email me about the copterx helicopter, especially for the copterx 450SE version, is it good? is it compatiable with Align 450SE?

I have started an investigation between CopterX 450 and Align 450 SE,

Where can I buy the Copterx Spare Parts?Go to Swanghobby.com , it is the free shipping site i ever found on the internet, but it is shipped from Hong Kong, China.See the linkhttp://www.swanghobby.com/copterx-450-v2-spare-parts-c-235.html


Also, for the CopterX Helicopter and other related CopterX Productgo there: http://www.swanghobby.com/copterx-m-14.html

CopterX is fully compatible with Align 450 parts. All the parts on the Copter X is compatible with the SE the Copter 450AE is no different from the 450SE and is compatible with the TREX450SE and SA. From the boom parts head, tail, belt. All parts are the same. Aluminum of CopterX 450AE is okay. But the material is too soft. For the carbon frame of CopterX 450SE is much better. If you want to land quickly, it will stand the hard landing.

Our Answer is CopterX Helicopter and Trex Align is 100% same...

It is because Trex Align is produced in China now, and the factory may sell the toolings (the frame, machine) to other reseller, therefore, you guy can enjoy a cheaper version of Align Trex.

"The V2 CopterX head is very nice, no slop as delivered and operates smoothly. I believe the ball links are steel, but I don't have any testing equipment. The swashplate bearing is not so good and develops slop quickly, but Align has the same problem; I switched to a Beam swashplate."

Finally, let's check the specification of CopterX SE 450

http://www.swanghobby.com/copterx-cx450se-v2-helicopter-kit-pr-964.html

Feature of CopterX SE 450 Helicopter
- New CNC carbon frame improve the rigidity and perfect for 3D flying.

- SSG battery mounting plate connects to main frame. It makes the center of gravity closed to rotor blade, reduced the correction when the helicopter rotation rolling.
- Rigid CNC aluminum rotor head for precision and smooth movements.
- Using Ball and Hiller two systems mixing control. Through simple structure of Ball control system, power-saving of Hiller system and CCPM control, can simultaneously control 3 servos for AILE, EVLE, PIT 3 actions. This CCPM control system is great for 3D flying control and extending life cycle of servos.
- New streamlined tail rotor blades make the gyro more efficient.
- New tail rotor control set, CNC control piece and movable ball link for smooth pitch travel.
- Providing fly bar weight- When normal flying, you can add the weights on fly bar paddles for stable flight. When aerobatic flying, you don't need to add the weight, but you can see the flexibility of 3D actions.
- CNC Metal tail unit and tail holder are using high rigid aluminum, falling resistance.
- New gear ratio (4.24:1), suitable for the motor with higher KV, provides more safety.
- Use Aluminum alloy drive pulley and tail drive pulley, high rigid and wear resistance. It is efficient to reduce the rotation loss and makes smoother.
- All kit use stainless steel linkage ball, wear resistance, anti-oxidization.
- Tail rotor hub made of stainless steel, very rigid.
- Great stable and sensitive mixing lever design! Can display the great stability and precision for 3D flight.
- CX 450AE special adjustable pitch system, hold rotation system, tail rotor drive belt system! It is a work of great originality for helicopter.

Copterx Helicopter

Copterx Helicopter
Many person asking me about the different between Align Trex and CopterX Helicopter.
There are loads of these advertised on Ebay saying that all Trex 450SE parts will fit! Here is a link to one on Ebay

Copterx is 100% compatiable to Align Trex Parts, The fact that Trex SE parts will fit on the CopterX does NOT mean that the CopterX is the same as a Trex. It just means the parts have the same dimensions, but it doesn't mean they're of the same quality; i.e. same metals, same manufacturing tolerances, etc. compared to Align parts. I'm not saying the CopterX isn't as good either since I don't know; just pointing out that "parts compatible" doesn't mean it's the same heli

Copterx NOT Equaly to Align Trex.
all the parts are compatible but they manufacture differently. Quality is different too Align as always is said to have better quality parts and Copter X is a low grade copy. I guess its up to the users to decide and dependent on their budget.

But, is it worth to buy a CopterX Helicopter?
One flyer answered:
ok guys, i have flown many trex se's, and after purchasing my copterx a month ago and doing some serious 3d with it, go for the copterx. As far as the quality of the aluminum, its the SAME QUALITY. I know these helis, and this is built well. The only thing that i have found to be cheaper on the copter x as of now, is the se has ball bearings on both sides of the feathering shaft, were as the copterx has brass bushings. A cheap fix that is recomended. I have had a few other trex pilots fly my copterx and overall impression is excelent. If you want to save some coin, go for the copterx, but please, get the se version. You will be kicking yourself in the but latter if you don't. AS far as setup, just go to a club and find some one help you assemble. A pro could through this thing together in about an hour. You will need to learn some time, so why not now? Overall, great heli. Don't go with the rtf version, comes with cheap servo's/gyro. Get a good digital tail servo, some nice hitecs for your swash, and a 401 as your gyro. Especially if your new, a good gyro with help you in your training.
