Re: Blade SR parts worth salvaging?
My SR has been gathering dust on the shelf for five years. Are any parts worth salvaging before I bin it?

I am currently flying a Blade 300X and will check if any parts are compatible, or if other parts like motor and servos are worth keeping even if they end up in a fixed wing aircraft.

Any sensible suggestions welcomed,
Tony

Hi:

You might try what I did. Put it away in a box with any parts needed to get it back in the air. In a few years, when you have gone through the full gambit of learning, crashing, repairing, and so on, pull it out, rebuild it with the parts on hand, and then fully tune it for best performance. I did that and now don't regret doing it. I have a collection of 12 (and growing) Blade CP family helicopters from the original CP to the latest 230S. I have three SR's, one is brand new, one with all sorts of aluminium upgrades, and the third is another stock one that I just got tuned from an out of control swinging tail, otherwise, stock. I have all but the CP bound to a DX18 and that is where you can wring out the best electronic setup. If not, then putting the servos and motor away for some aircraft project might get you some use out of the parts. Hope this helps.

Don

Or, you can put whatever you have remaining in the classifieds and cut your losses !

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....
