Motors, lipo batteries & chargers, servos available from HeadsUpRC at a reasonable cost and very inexpensive shipping.

for MOST T-rex clones and regular T-rex helis, you will need four servos.

Three for the cyclic control on the swashplate and one more for the tail
rotor. It's really best if you buy a good quality tail rotor servo made for
this purpose. At the very least, make sure it's a digital servo.

When I put my heli together, I bought a helicopter servo pack from JR
and the servos worked great.

Ty jim i found that it needs 4 servos by skimming through the forums. Quick question whats the diffrence between and reqular servo and a digital and why is a digital only used for the tail rotor?

Digital servos react faster to input and most gyros need a digital servo
to do the job of keeping the tail in place. If you read the specs on most gyros
they want you to have a good digital tail rotor servo. Believe me, it's worth
it to have the right servo on the tail with the gyro.

rcbuildernoob......

For parts on a 450 trex clone try Xheli or Hobbypartz....it should be fine (for scale flying) with your suggested equipment.

The Haulser is just another trex clone...almost everything on it is Align compatible......do not cheap out on the gyro or digital tail servo and consider setting it up with a good 6ch TX/RX....most that come with the rtf heli knock off packages are crap......with most knock-offs, the heli is only as good as the TX/RX, servos, gyro and mechanic/pilot assisting it!

Ok think i will go with a haulser since it will be pretty much exact same price for me to buy a kit and all the parts and have them shipped and just get some better servos and gyro for it and see if i can get a trans and receiver from a friend he has a ton. Not going to be doing any extreme stunts with it at first will be only the 2nd 6ch ive had first was about 2 years ago and that was a micro never got it mastered well.
