Hi.

I've finally decided to buy a T-Rex.
I've had a Zoom during the last year and after a few crashes and fixings I've decided I need a new heli, so instead of spending a lot of money on buying replacements and upgrades for my Zoom I prefer to spend less money on a brand new T-Rex 450XL.

I've been reading this forum to find tips and tricks about T-Rex and the trouth is that there are so many that I'm a bit confused. Every version of the T-Rex has its own tips and tricks, so I would like to know if you guys could help me on the 450XL version. Should I do some important mod or take special care in something when I build it before I fly it?

I wouldn't like to flyi it for the first time and have a bad surprise like tail splitting or something breaking...

I will be using Zoom's motor and electronics:

- Hacker B20 15L ( with 9, 10, 11T ? )
- TMM 25 Amp ESC
- Futaba GY 240
- Hitec HS 56 for tail servo
- 3 Protech servos for CCPM
- 2100 and 2600 3S 1P - 12C Lipo packs
- Shulze 6 CH receiver
- Futaba FF9 TX

Thanks for your future help

Oscar

You may want to get the version that comes with the Align motor & ESC, so you can compare the different setups.

An 11t pinion is a good place to start. The T-Rex XL is larger so the B20-15L may tend to run hot – keep an eye on the temperature.
