So after playing around with the Blade CP for a while, I finally decided to pick up a T-rex!

It came with a Hyperion 30 amp ESC and an Align head lock gyro. I need some advice on the best motor to use with this setup. Also, should I upgrade the gyro? I hear good things about the Futaba 401.

Any other initial setup advice would be greatly appreciated!

The 401 is an excellent mid range gyro thats for sure. go for it.

Dunno about the motor (I use some basic Align thingy on my rexy).

As for setup, difficult to see from the image if your swash is level, but when it is level, the angle between the servo arm's and the swash pushrod's should both be 90 degrees. Adjust the pushrod's to achieve this.

Oh finally, check your tail servo for seperation. Even if you dont feel anything (like the front being loose) wrap a smalll tie wrap around it TIGHTLY. See here.
