Dang Mark, Seems like yesterday you got your first one.... Have you got a new plank yet?

07-28-2008, 06:04 AM
Whats a plank :confused::confused:


I will! Just another stryker though.

Dog! I don't think that's fair. I haven't upgraded yet.

07-28-2008, 02:23 PM
LOL, helig, we have Trex450 se v2's! there is no upgrade! except maybe size...

It's even a great beginner heli!! I just got done with 2 days and about 12 packs of no crashing in my little front yard in the city! Great feeling after all the defeat i felt before these days lol. The copter is easier to hover for me than the .30 size trainer in Realflight 3.5. I wouldnt say as stable, but easier to hover. My bro has gotten pretty good with a cx, i was even thinking of letting him try to hover it once i get my swashplate leveler it is so stable with a little exposition. .

But yah i want a Trex 500 CF you bastard lol. JK

Congrats Skunky!!!

You will love the 500CF. Did you get the combo from Grand RC?

I fly my 500 as often as I can. You can see a couple of pics of it in my gallery. Since I built mine I rarely fly my 450se V2. I would rather double up my 450 packs and get a couple more flights in with the 500.:silly: I am currently running Flight Power Evo25 6s 2500 packs on mine but have been seriously looking at getting 1 or 2 of the Outrage 25C 6s 2500 or 3000 packs. I see you went with the 9650s on the swash like I recommended on Helifreak. Don't get me wrong my Hitech 5245s work great but the cases are very fragile and are sometimes hard to find. I see you also went with the TT. I was about to switch mine over to the TT but have decide to save my money and start shopping for a T-Rex 600E instead.

Have fun with your build!

Not yet! Going to the field on saturday to break it lose. Probably hover it between then.

I didnt order from Ed, although I would have liked to I got a KILLER deal.

This is a brand new CF
SAB Carbons
KB Tails
Full CNC Head
CNC Tail with CNC pitch slider
5245's on cyclic
401 gyro 9650 tail

Align 2600 6S


For so cheap, really REALLY killer deal. I almost feel bad. It tapped out my account, so it really is all I could do, but man....SMOKIN deal.

Thinkin about swapping on my 770 but it looks like it is setup pretty good. Ill see how it flies.

07-31-2008, 08:42 AM
New or used? If new, how good of a deal and how do we get em for cheap?

07-31-2008, 03:00 PM
That's frikkin nice bird u got there : ) How did u like the align assembley? It's looks more complicated than most helis i look at, but now that i know the system, im getting very good at ripping her apart and putting it back together again.
