Hi.. .We just ordered 2x T REX 450XL(HDE)

We added the Align 325mm Carbon blades.

The motor we opted for was the MEGA 16/15/3

- I can't find the diameter of the motor axle
- Are pinions that will fit the MEGA motor included in the KIT ?

we got some info on these combo deals that the only thing we need was the normal things - KIT / batt /RX /servo/ESC etc.
no extra hardware.

one other thing ... what would be the best blade vs pinion option to do light 3D and inverted hover excercises?

so.. We live in Iceland - and we have to order everything from USA ... so it takes time! and we would be quite annoyed if we get the kits but need one damn pinion!

The Mega has a 3.17 (3.2) mm shaft normally. The included pinions work just fine. Grind a flat spot on the shaft if there isn't one to begin with. saves a lot of trouble down the line.

Hi Benni,
As TheX says, the stock pinion works. I sues that motor with a 13 tooth pinion and 3s 2100 LiPo packs. It works very well.
Order some spare parts. I have bent many main shafts and feathering shafts. I have broken landing gear. (Do the newer XL kits come with the same landing gear as the older 450X kitts? If so, boiling them helps them survive hard landings)
