Different kit versions?
April 08, 2019 07:23AM
Hey guys,

I noticed the kit my buddy received (first 50) and mine being part of the second batch. His tail fin is the bright orange and blue like the logo 690 kits and my kit has the orange strip on the fin much like the logo 700 kit. Is there a reason the fins are different color with the second batch? I’d prefer the orange and blue fin personally.

Second question, I am wanting to run Xpert R3hvs low profile servos on the cyclic. Does anyone know if there are any mounting issues with these?

I appreciate the input.

I also received the fin with the orange strip, and was disappointed, as a brighter fin is easier for me to see.
My kit is from the 2nd batch also.

The first 50 kits used the old stock of painted fins from the original 690.

Mikado decided to make a change to their entire line up of fins and change to the new version of carbon with single stripe of orange. This change will be applied to all Mikado helis now including the Glogo. I also prefer a bit the solid orange, but something are out of my hands. Lets see what happens for the future!
