I got home today and my "new to me" T-Rex 600CF was waiting for me. I bought a used package off Helifreak and got what I think was a good deal on everything. It is setup with the 600CF carbon frames, 600mm VBlades, Steve Neu 1515 H/F motor, Castle Creations Pheonix HV85ESC, Futaba 9252 Cyclic Servos, Logictec 6100T Gyro/Servo, AR 7000 RX, Align 6A voltage regualar and 2S receiver lipo, torque tube tail, metal main grips, and an additional Align 75A esc. The package also came with a complete Thunder Power 1010C/210v charger/balancer combo with 2 FP Evo 25 6S 4900, 1 FP Evo 30 6s 4500, and 1 TP Extreme V2 6S 5000 pack.

I can't wait to get my radio programmed and this thing up in the air. Hopefully, I will have it ready to fly by Saturday morning.

Here are a couple of pics of it with my other helis. I will take some solo shots once I get all the wiring cleaned up.

Skunky-
You are right. This heli was built by Will James the owner of Helifreak.com. He had it for sale with a Mikado VBar setup. I bought everything except the Vbar for less than I could have built a basic 600 for.

gaak- Vblades are just a brand of Carbon Fiber blades. http://www.grandrc.com/inc/sdetail/44231

You lucky duck! Nice helis indeed. I'm thinking of getting a 600 here near xmas time, might skip the 500 class. Think a raptor .30 will be to beginner after i master a 450 ?

Well if you are skipping the 500 class dont get a .30 cause that is basically the same thing :)

You are thinking of the Mikado VBar setup. Like this

The guy I bought my 600 off had wanted to sell it with a new in box V-Bar system. I am not advanced enough, or have a wallet deep enough, to purchase it off him.

Yes, the V-bar would be too much to spend, if your not close to expert. The V blade is a brand.

i must admit the trex 600 E when fitted with the blue motor is very hard to beat. i watched a guy on you - tube that is no doubt one of the best worldwide heli 3d flyers and this trex was awesome.
