rip off britain and no changing it

My Posts: All  Forum  Topic

i'm going to get one of these helis but i don't know what to get. i'm thinking of going with the x400 as it looks a better design to me and is after all a new trex in a way.

but i'm wondering if someone can tell me if spares are interchangable. i mean things like boom, belt, blades etc. i see the x400 is smaller dia rotor and is shorter in overall length. but is that becuase of different booms and blades or is the frames shorter?

any info appreciated or opinions on what one to get.

cheers

Spare parts are not compatible.
Compare x400 and Trex, I have the comments below:

1. Trex heavier, more stable for outdoor
x400 lighter, more agile, indoor is very good.
2. Trex is more durable than x400
3. Trex spare parts are cheaper
4. Power requirement for Trex is higher.

My overall comment, new pilot should choose Trex. If u want to play 3D for indoor, choose x400

thanks for the reply.

it is not for indoor use. but i was thinking if it's 40g lighter to begin with then could put in a bigger lipo to make up for it.

as for part prices then in the UK i'm not sure yet about prices of the x400. i'm looking into it but i only know one place that will be selling them and they don;t have them in yet. but they are due in.

do you know if the trex boom/belt is same as x400? i'm just thinking long term and the boom upgrade.

i assmue they use same blades anyway????

cheers

1) T-Rex is NOT heavier than X-400. They are the same or X-400
a little heavier!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As standard X-400 is NOT more agile than T-Rex. T-Rex is more agile due to lighter paddles!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2) Don`t understand why T-rex is more durable than X-400?
3) The prices I have seen looks like they are very close, average
the same.
4) Same equipment!

To be honest I really think a lot of the parts would be interchangable too. I mean Im sure you could use a X400 tail gearbox on a trex. And Im sure you could probably stick a whole X400 head on a Trex too, but maybe not totally mix the parts together in some areas.

Check out the items I have for sale in the clasifieds including a CSM 420

i'll tell you soon. the x400 will be here tommorow and i'm going to see if the stanard t-rex boom will fit on. if it does then by definition then the long one would fit.

cheers
