Finally my rex is flying quite nice , the tail is much better after fitting the ferrite box before the speedo.
Theres a little glitch every now and again , but its not bad im also going to move in a notch for the pitch as its to sensistive.

My only gripe now is running time , I bought my kit from a hongkong seller it came with 2 lipo batteries 11.1 volt , it will not run for any longer than around 2 minutes , im thinking of also using less positive pitch to reduce the load , whats the least I can use im currently using +10 ??

Also would like to thank you lot for all your help , ive been flying nitro heli's for years but these are a different ball game .

Cheers steven

Get some high capacity batteries (TP2100 Pro-Lites). On a Trex, the battery is everything !

Tried the link (after making all of the RR adjustments) and was unable to see the batteries that you were. Be careful buying used LiPos as users will abuse these batteries and then sell them to unsuspecting people (victims). I usually just order a new set whenever I put a new bird together so that I know what I have. The TP2100 Pro-Lites are readily available (I am in the US, but I have seen them on UK sites also). The normal price US is about $72 per pack ..... not really that bad for a new pack.

They were new 3500 packs from a hongkong seller , is it better to go for as high a MAH as possible ??
Just hovered her again in the kitchen , I messed with the pitch and the head speed was to high , so I moved the servo horn 1 notch its now -4 +9 and its pretty good , im sure it flew a little longer as well .
This is the first time ive flown her inside it would have been impossible before getting it set up this nice , the tail in HH mode is rock solid .

TGO,
After reading that thread you suggested I would not purchase anything from that guy. The buyers are having difficulty getting their merchandise from him!

Lipo
I get ten minutes of hover out of an AllElectric RC 3s1p 1600mAh pack. Its only 10C and is hot to the touch after flight but it only cost £22. I am finding it a great pack to start off with and has been through around 20 cycles so far.
