TrexSE what a great heli.
I just wanted to say that I properly flew my SE for the 1st time today and WOW, what a capable little heli. OK there have been some teething problems; quality control is not good and I need to put some time into the tail/servo/gyro setup because there was virtually NO tail authority so the tail just whafted around However rather than fight it, I just let it do as it pleased (mainly weather cock) and put up with FFF. I was impressed with how easy it is to fly, loops and rolls are no problem and I was also impressed with its stability in moderately gusty conditions. Due to the wind and lack of tail control, it was not at all uncontrollable.
I can't wait to get the tail sorted and find out how well it performs in some proper 3D flight

Might as well be the first to say the GY401/9650 w probably a Medusa BEC depending on the cyclic servos and type ESC. Glad to hear a good first report as the SE gets alot of bad press.

Yeah, I was wondering about that setup. I happened to have a spare SL560 V4, so I reprogrammed it to suit this size heli and used an HS50 servo. Lots of people use the GY401/9650. Whats you're opinion of this setup ?

Maidened my new SE yesterday, and what a pleasure, flew hands off, good tracking, not a single adjustment or trim necessary. The time spent on the bench getting a good setup was well worth it.
Had some reservations after a few disappointments during the build, like separating swash, missing loctite, notchy bearings, etc., but I am happy now.
I also have a CSM SL560 V4 but with HDS-877 in digital mode on the tail. Using CSM's recommended settings for micros. Works very well with good authority. Not thrown it around in anger yet though.
