We can upgrade the arms on our X9Es' . These aluminium arms are nice and stiff and more than an inch and a half longer than the stock arms.
For me the radio carried slightly less of a down ward angle than the stock arms but of course this will be different for everyone. I adjusted the harness up and down until my wrists felt comfortable and have been happy with it ever since.
Installation is pretty straight forward. Remove the four screws from the transmitters rear cover and remove it. The arm set set is very conveiniently fastened to the rear cover. Remove the 14 screws and both brackets. Install the new arm set using the harware pack that came with the kit
We hope this retrofit makes some people happy.
These arms represent a very big improvement over the composite arms that came with my E. While the composite arms were not weak as some said they were springy. Further their short length made it difficult to provide sufficient clearance for hands when using the cantilever arm extensions.
The new CNC arms have completely fixed these issues. They look great too.
These are Great Arms. Really easy to install. Mine came with all new hardware and metal retainers. Note I never broke the stock ones.
Just did not like that they were plastic and may break some day .
Thanks Aloft Hobbies for a Great product.
