I finally got a chance to install and test my Mini V-bar in my trex 450 on the weekend. Works just like it's big brother, except it really cleaned up the wiring and component count. It's roughly the same size as the sk360 I had in there, but I lost the spartan off the tail block and the AR7000 from the front. The heli looks empty now except for the speed controller !

Setup was identical to my other helis with full sized V-bars. The Control Panel works perfectly with it also for tweaking at the field. Until the Mikado 450 conversion head comes out, I'm just running the stock V2 head using the mixing arms from the flybar carrier I removed as 'step downs' for the swash input to the head. The ratio actually works out a bit lower than the recommended ( ie: recommended 80 on the collective setting equaling +-10 degrees of collective.....with the current ratio, I need about 100 to get +-10), but until the conversion head is available, it's working sweet! I didn't want to use direct from the swash to the blade grips because the swash has got quite a bit of slop in it.
Once the head conversion is available, it will get new digital servos, a new swash without slop, and the new head.

I am definitely happy with the purchase.

And what swashplate will you get for your 450 that does not have slop? I don't think one exists. My MicroHeli one developed slop pretty quick. My Outrage one developed slop too, but not as much. I've heard the Beam swash is good.

All the 450 swashes start off tight, but how long does it stay that way for?

look at the beam threads

there is so little action on them, I am assuming because they have few problems. I own one and it went together great. Just waiting on a TX. Partes are great.

Flying Tivo,

I got it from Ready-Heli. I was one of the people to get one of the hand inspected first batch mini-V units from Mikado.

jrockstuart,

Yes, I was thinking about a beam swashplate. I've heard good things about them, and more here in this topic now.

I would like to see a picture of the mini-V-bar inside the Trex 250 (i.e. take the canopy off).

By the way, nice flybarless head conversion on the 250.

I like how you're able to get to the USB port on the bottom without having to remove the V-bar from the heli frame. Very nice.

Keep an eye out at ReadyHeli on Monday or Tuesday of this week. Go to the page for the mini vbar and set an email alert to let you know when it comes into stock.
