Have just purchased my fourth trex 450! having the very first one all those years ago and not liking that one, moving on and to a CCPM setup and now after being away from the small helis and spending my time with my nitros and building a few scales....it was time to come back.

So I have a Trex 450SE V2 with 450TH motor on a 4S setup. question is for flight performance are you guys mounting the 4S batteries on the angles tray or the baseplate?

1800 4s FP Evos weigh the same as a 2170. Use the upper tray with a MJP carbon extention. 5-6 min on 4s and you'll be down in time. That 450th will run very hot, hot esc, hot batts, beware.

How about the best battery position for the stock TRex 450SE?

Mine has an extended battery tray in the base and flies really good. Receiver is in the upper tray. (pic at gallery)

However, I see that most people use the upper tray for the battery and the lower tray for ESC.

Any thoughts?

thanks Tom, I was thinking the same for the balance point - as my batteries havent arrived yet i was wondering if they fit under the canopy.

Was also thinking of trying a 500TH on 10T pinion with the 4S setup.

I got the SE V1 but have since replaced the frame set with the V2, 4s batts fit with the 1173 and the V2 style canopys no prob.
