Trex equipment recommendation
I'm going to buy 2 Trex's 450's. One for MILD flying, and one for WILD flying.

What equipment would you recommend?

Here's a list of possible equipment (for WILD flying?):

Hitec 65MG
Jazz 40-6-18
Hacker A20
GY401/9650

Not sure about batteries tho.

What are you guru's flying on your Trex's?

Thanks for your help.

also, Try a Medusa 3400KV for wild flying. the Hacker will be a bit hard on your batteries unless you cut down flight times. Still a very good motor for high torque because the inertia from the spinning motor can keeps a constant headspeed very well. I am currently running one in my beater SE (the one I do all the tricks with at the moment).. But I favor the medusa as well. Both very good motors. For $20 more, the medusa is 2 minutes worth of flight time more efficient, but not QUITE as torquey. Although it is a very close one. I wish we could measure the output torque in Foot/lbs on these motors..

If you want wild the only way to go is 4s once bitten you will never go back

The hacker motor A20-6XL 2500 i am thinking of trying i hear its awesome on 3s but you need true 20c li-po's to handle the heat, go 4s
I use the Jgf 450th on 4s its awesome

The Jazz 40-6-18 has a 6s bec its the only way to go

Hitec 65MG i am using the hitec hs56 nice servo some people are having problems with them burning out i have had one burn out in around 70 hours of flying

GY401/9650
Nice combination i have not tried the 9650 but i have 3 gy 401 gyro's i don't use the 401 on my trex's too heavy.
I use the csm 420 and the 560 on my 2 trex's and the csm 420 on my comet 500 With the hds 877 servo's work's very nice

Not sure about batteries tho.
At the moment i am using tp 2100 4s prolites my latest batch have seen over 75 hours of flying

The only li-po's you will need are the Thunderpower prolites 4s 1p they have new generation out now called Extreem so these are worth trying.

If you need a dual trex then go 4s you can still stick a 3s li-po on it for around 2200 rpm and it will be mild flying
The world is round you can run but you will always end up where you started from

Thx for the responses.

Please excuse my ignorance, as I'm just stepping into electrics.

I used to have a 450 se, and bifurcated that thing a million times during it's maiden flight. Had to total the friggin thing ... Bad experience ...

But now I'm willing to give it another go.

So I'm going to go the cheap route and get the CCPM 450XL. Are there any XL upgrades (swash, grips, tail, etc.) that I should get to accomodate a "HOT" motor set up?

So right now for motors, I'm down to the Medusa and the Hacker. Are there any other motors that I should look at, like the AON and the NEU motors?


Also, if a motor is rated for 3S and below, does that mean I can't use 4S?

Thanks for your help.

i completely agree with steph, 4s is a great choice.
9650+gy401 is a super combo (better 420 csm if you can)
hs65mg are a great choice.

neu 1107 with 10 teeth pinion is my motor (3500 rpm of outstanding superpower with minimal ampere requirements!!)

Buy heliup frame and heliup complete head.
