Just got mine yesterday after reading your thread over at ultimaterc.  Thanks for the reviews!  It doesn't feel as cheap in my hand as I thought it would, but this is coming from an old Futaba 3PM-FM which wasn't a flagship radio by any means but a quality product.  With batteries in the 3XS and no batteries in the 3PM, the 3PM is still much heavier.  The plastic though, didn't feel as cheap as I thought it would.  I did have an issue with the RX not binding out the box.  Disassembled the HK-3100 and it bound fine.  Not sure what the issue was, but the antenna was crimped badly due to how it was soldered and the exit location.  It naturally wanted to exit the side of the case but they route it through the end.  An Xacto made quick work fixing the case.  Also, the RX board had a HK-300 number on the back and a 2010 date.  Are these the same boards used in the HK-3000 receivers, just in a different case?

thanks for the feedback!

no, I haven't had any problems with any of the 4 Rx's I currently own.. I've been very careful to apply CA on the seams of each case when I get them so I can't remove any of the cases to see the boards at this time.  Glad to hear you are happy with yours!

What spacing did you go with for the Pixabulbs, 6"?  Thinking of going this route next year, thanks!

Received mine with a broken motor mount as well.  There was a chunk missing that wasn't even in the box so it happened before shipping.  The mount also had CA all over it like they had tried to repair it.  Advise anyone getting this to go ahead and get a decent mount from milleniumrc or elsewhere.  The plastic parts that come with it are junk and very brittle.  Aside from that, plane went together quick and flies great.

Oh nice, will keep that in mind if I ever move up to a bigger heli. We have a good size field behind our place so I just piddle out there for now.  Makes it nice just being able to walk out the back door and fly :)
