Hi,

Actually my 601 on Trex is from a repaired and upgraded 502 (by changing the IC inside) with a reuse 601 amp and sensor case on it.
But it perform as good as a 601. After tested perfect in my Trex, it will installed in my Freya 90...

Good thinking IMO . Alot cheaper to wack around a t-rex than the 90.
I think it will work just fine. There's a weight penalty of course but that has been mentioned. As always it's reccomended to mount the unit lower and not in the stock location - in the event of a crash the flybar has been known to come around and wack or cut in half the gyro. I know there'd be alot more tears shed slicing up a 601 than a 401.

Ooh, I was sorta right... hehe, I do think its better to test on a smaller heli as well, see all that jabbin and it turns out to be totally legit... It just took us some time to get to the bottom of it... ricer... hehe

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

I'm test flying my recently repaired 14Mz/ G3 receiver in a TRex. Futaba Service didn't find the problem so you bet I'll be flying the G3 in the TRex for few weeks before I put it back into my Tempest 3D.

However, after my test flying this past weekend I might have to get another G3 Rx just for the TRex. The TRex flys so much better with the G3. Problem is I have to hang the G3 off the side of the heli as it won't fit underneath and up front it makes the heli nose heavy.

As I'm not flying my Tempest maybe I should try the 601 in the TRex as well. Who cares about weight. Its only flight time I'll loose.

Weight does NOT just equal less flight time, and how can the reciever alone make the heli fly better? If you get glitches with another rx I can understand it but I'd like to hear some justification for both remarks.

A heavy model will require more power to keep in the air. The motor will draw more power and the more power you consume the less the flight time. A heavy model will also fly better in the wind and will auto better. It will accelerate slower but its already so light compared to the power its not that big of a deal. Not trying to start anything but I don't think a few grams make that much difference in flight performance. What's your point?

Have you read about the features of the 14mz? I will tell you flat out the radio is better than any other Futaba radio. So I'm comparing Futaba model A with Futaba model B. Compared to the 9z, which I still own, there is a substantial difference to the 14mz. Previously I was using my 9z transmitter and Futaba 8 channel PCM receiver in my TRex. I don't have any glitching with my setup.

The 14mz provides a faster data link and higher resolution of control. With the TRex I felt the throttle was faster, hovering was smoother and more precise, and when I flew hard the model just reacted to my inputs faster than with the 9z. The 401/9650 on the tail was holding better than before as I was able to fly harder and faster than before. I taking about stationary funnels, piro flips, traveling piro flips, piro funnels and loops, etc. The TRex is an outstanding performer and with the right equipment it just gets better.

Yes response time is quicker on the g3 radio, enough to make a big noticeable difference on a t-rex, I really doubt it. But heh peeps want to blow wads on that gear have fun.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...
