The HK 600GT kits have a few parts that should be replaced prior to flying. The Main Gear, Auto
Rotation Gear should be replaced as the stock ones are usually warped and that causes vibrations.
The Tail Drive Gear MUST be replaced prior to flight, stock ones are known to fail, huge safety risk
for such a cheap part, replace with Align Gear. The Flybar cage's are made a bit small and its easier
to just buy an Align Flybar cage, it will fit better. And the kit does not comes with Servo Mounting
plates, they just make mounting the servos easier, get some.

The HK 600GT from HobbyKing is a clone of the very popular Align T-Rex 600. The HK 600GT is not as
good quality as the T-Rex but its also a fraction of the cost. The HK 600GT comes as a kit and can be
challenging to assemble properly. But once you finish building the heli it is an awesome machine. Its
great value for the money and is perfect for those wanting to move to the 600 size class on a budget.
Also great for Scale Fuselages and Aerial Photography. However, if your goal is to do alot of 3D, I
would recommend getting a higher quality kit, like the
Chaos 600.
