They are weak and failed to even operate at an acceptable level before the break-in was complete. Added wooden blocks to the firewall. Here's a bonus; it also doubles as a carrying handle! The RimFire and 6S LiPo provide more than enough power to take the Kaos vertical and keep going until you decide to bring it back down to earth. One constant throughout the Kaos series was the airfoil and basic wing design. The colors are bright and the graphics look really cool. The good thing about the Tower Terror is that it can be tuned to suit your individual needs. After the photos were complete, I took it up a bit to see if it flew the way I remember my original Kaos flying, and it does.
Included wrench To prepare the truck for break-in, I oiled the filter and installed the batteries into the transmitter and receiver. Even in the gusty winds, there was no problem placing the Kaos exactly where I wanted. A 5-cell hump pack was installed and, even though the problem was lessened to an extent, the Terror was still having operational issues with the servos. This makes the job so much easier as it would not go through without being lubed. The recommended needle settings were right on as the engine sputtered and smoked at idle. Later, you may wish to experiment by shifting the C.
I found only one sentence on Tower Hobbies' website that referenced the mid-range needle, and they suggest you turn the needle so it is flush with the body. Wing bolts should be metal not plastic. There is no slipper clutch on the Tower Terror so care needs to be taken to avoid power-on landings when possible. What really surprised me was how the suspension soaked up the bumps across the moguls section. For high speed running over rough terrain, having tire foam would have definately helped. Comparing the glow experience is interesting.
After filling the tank with 20% fuel, I primed the engine by placing my finger over the outlet on the pipe and pulled the starter a few times. I found myself rolling into the throttle in the loose stuff to maintain directional control. It also doesnt hurt to trim the body near the heatsink to access the pull-start.

When you install the stabilizer, slide the right side of the stabilizer into the left side of the fuselage. The antenna needed to be threaded through the tube so I placed a small drop of household oil on the end of the tube and slid it through.
I would recommend adding a short second spar in the rear of the wing to take the stress off the wing bolts. The dual disc brake proved itself worthy of stopping the Tower Terror in a hurry and endos can happen if proportional breaking is not practiced. I have seen complaints circulating around the internet about Tower Hobbies reluctance to include foam in their tires and frankly, I dont see it being a big issue on the Terror. . For those in the know, this is the mid-range needle. I did not get a chance to test the truck with foam but if it seems to be what the people want, maybe Tower Hobbies should take note.
