Part wear
I've had my t-rex for two weeks and Im already at about 30 flights, what part need to be replaced the most due to normal wear? (I've noticed the belt is begining to show signs of wear)

Tail belt and main gears/tail gears. IF the gears look ok, I'm sure they are fine for another 30 flights.
Also, go through your rotor head (washout, mixer arms, seesaw etc) to be sure no binding has started to build up in the balls and links. I have noticed my Trex's like to start binding up in the rotor head after a good 20-30 flights. Especially if your rotor head is all aluminum and you use loctite to assemble it. When the rotor heats up it can reheat the loctite and fling it into the bearings or between your washout mixing arms and the washout slider. I have noticed the problem mostly on the washout parts. Go super sparingly on the loctite.

I have 75 flights on my t-rex se. no wear. head is still tight, belt is still good. I lube everything, including lubing the belt with silicon spray. All bearings are still good, average 7 to 8 min. a flight. I allso lube the oneway bearing with teflon grease, bushings with light oil.
