Default Any required updates for basic kit?

Hi,

I've got an x7 kit to build which looks like an older kit with the original closed black followers.

Should I replace these right away, and what about other parts? Are any of the updates released mandatory?

Thanks

John

I am building the basic kit right now as well.

I bought the upgraded washout arms

and also the upgraded one way
http://www.anythingheli.com/gaui-x7-...pgrade-217170/

The one way sleeve on the X7 has the propensity to slip so you may have to modify it

Apparently the links can catch at certain points on the plastic washout arms that come with the basic kit. This can be mitigated, and worked around, but I chose to buy the upgrade.

As for the one way, not 100% sure about the original, or how many folks here are flying with it, hopefully they can comment, but I chose to go with the upgraded one and modify it.

You may also want to pick up a boom support brace, as I hear that is good in the event a boom support comes lose.

Also make sure that whatever motor you go with, has a shaft long enough to extend into the motor bearing block. Some motors may have the correct length, but for my motor I got this:

Like I said I am still building but the above are things I felt I had to take into account.
