Well, i crashed my Shogun (unrepairable) and decided to let it rest in peace. I ordered a Trex 500 ESP and need some advise. I have a GY240 that i was using on my shogun. Will that work ok with the trex 500?
Any suggestions on the best receiver for this bird?
Im also planning on getting a 2600mah 6S pack.
thanks for the input.

You'll love the 500. The 240 is a bit outdated but it will work. For the price you can't go wrong with Aligns GP750 gyro. Very good unit.

For batteries, I'm using performance plus packs.

good choice on the battery. you will be happy with it. as for the gyro, i am pleased with CY mini-G along with the G-view. the GY520 from Futaba is supposed to be pretty awsome. they are both comprable in size and capability.

I was using a 401 with a 9650 tail servo now I am using a 520 with the same servo. I dont see any need to use a full size servo its pretty quick with this setup. As for your reciever you can use the one that you have for that radio but I would cut the antenna and solder on a Deans whip antenna or go with a 2.4 7 channel Futaba or more and never look back.

+1 for no need for a full size tail servo.

The JR 3500G is wonderful and works well. The 8900G is only .01 sec faster. If you can tell the difference, you may be superhuman. The 3500G has plenty enough torque for the T500.

The BEC is built in to the ESC. Run your servos at 6V and use a stepdown for the tail servo. I like the LED one from Western Robotics. It works nice.
