KDS Innova 550 V2 DFC Flybarless Helicopter Kit

KDS Innova 550 V2 DFC Flybarless Helicopter Kit
KDS Innova 550 V2 DFC Flybarless Helicopter Kit

Looking for PRO class helicopter performance at a price that can't be beat? Your search is over...KDS is here!

Constructed from top quality materials and featuring the latest in 3D helicopter design, the KDS Innova V2 series will not disappoint.

The new Innova V2 series feature a DFC (direct flight control) rotor head minimizing rotational mass providing the ultimate in response, control and efficiency. This head design brings the rotor disc closer to the main frame providing a lower center of gravity. This increases agility and performance making it ideal for 3D flight.

The Innova V2 main frame is constructed from genuine carbon fiber and reinforced with aluminum side plates to provide the ultimate in rigidity. The beefy 25mm tail boom eliminates vibration and flex found in other helicopters with smaller diameter booms. This means no flex even under the most extreme of 3D maneuvers! 

All the functional features aside, the KDS Innova helis simply look amazing with their beautifully finished carbon fiber main frame, black anodized aluminum parts and expertly painted fiberglass canopy. It will be sure to turn heads every time you bring it out to your local flying site!   

KDS is a high quality brand that you can trust. They are well known in the PRO helicopter world performing very well in 3DMasters, 3DX and other R/C model helicopter flight competitions around the globe.

*Note: This is the latest version of the KDS Innova series helicopters featuring the all new DFC rotor head design and update parts. No old stock here!

Will you ship this without all the parts so I cant complete it!!
Egg Man  71 points - 3/2/2015
WARNING! Be Very careful when tightening the screws that hole the pitch arms to the mainblade grips. There is only 3.5mm of thread on the M6 screw and 5mm of thread on the M8 screw and if you are ham handed you will strip the screw. Snug it down and stop tightening when you feel the screw stop. Gorilla torquing it WILL strip the threads (ask me how I know) and cost you $25 for a new set of grips.

What motor would i use to do hard to medium3d
GabrielRazer  18 points - 5/1/2014
And would it be possible to modify it to a 12s setup? I have got a few 6s 3000mah lying around

Hi I heard the innova series have discontinued... Is it still worth buying this kit? Will hobbyking provide parts?

Only the build so far. Kit is of very high quality, only a slight default in one of the carbon fiber panels (likely because of a bump during transport). Instructions are clear, though a few more explanations in places would help (like how to get the main gear on). Servo setup makes access to that area very easy, and the large battery tray makes battery placement easy (5000Mah 6S fit easily). Little details like the canopy grommets at the front of the heli ensure putting the canopy on is simple and avoids damaging the canopy (and makes the fit very snug).

Really nice heli. Fun to build and very good quality. Mine arrived with no Rx plate and the old short bottom frame plate, without the extension at the front to hold the battery strap. I really miss not having this because this heli is very tail heavy and the battery needs to go a long way forward. Without a strap on the front the battery can easily come loose. The canopy looks different to the picture. It's a new V2 version that looks like the original V1 version with a new paint job and slightly lower at the back. Don't drill your holes in the canopy until you can see where your battery needs to go, as it's unlikely you will be able to sit the canopy where it's shown in the picture. Also the pinion provided is bad. The hole is too big and the pinion will orbit. Also the main gear lost a tooth on my 3rd flight. Mesh was perfect and I have a good quality "hard one" pinion and a very soft start. I suspect the latest gear plastic in not flexible enough. The blades are good and well balanced. I ended up using a 15T pinion and the Turnigy 600 1180kv motor. This is a good combo for this heli. Servos are 3 x Turnigy 1257TG and the HK47110DMG Mi servo. FBL controller is the fu-bar, which works brilliantly. The heli flies well and is very smooth. It also gets up and goes fast if you want it to. With the 3kW motor I mentioned above this heli is ballistic in pitch pumps. The tail is very strong with the stock 95mm blades. All up a great heli but the issues drop it to 4 stars.
