T-rex Setup - Redone - Pics - $650 Shipped Sound Good?
All right, let’s start with the proper introduction. This 9C and T-Rex belonged to Brandon L. Metcalf, AKA falcon247. On July 23rd, Brandon was on a bike rally in Wickenburg, AZ, with all of his riding buddies, on his ’04 Suzuki GSX-R 1000. He was on this rally, and they were going up a mountain. When they got to the top, Brandon wanted to do it again. So he, alone, went back down the mountain. On the way back up, on a left turn, there was an RV that was speeding and had to take up the oncoming lane in order to complete the turn. Brandon had to swerve and then lean hard in order to avoid the RV. He leaned too far, and his footpeg hit the ground, throwing Brandon off the bike and into the guardrail. Brandon had a data recorder on his bike. He was going 2 MPH over the speed limit, however, the RV was going 25 MPH over the speed limit. He had just turned 19 years old a month before.

This T-Rex was a project of Brandon’s, that I was helping him get together. It is a 450XL (I believe) and the non-ccpm version. Here are some of the things this has. I just put in a brand new frame and brand new align wood blades. This does have two HS-56 Servos already installed, and I assume that they are working. It also has many Flight Tech head upgrades, aileron control arms, and landing gear. The landing gear does have a kink in it; I will post pictures ASAP. It will also include a CC Phoenix 45 with Deans Ultras, an E-Flite 45 amp BL ESC without a battery connector. For a battery, it will come with an E-Flite 3S 2100 mAh Li-po. For a motor, it has a Kontronik Fun 400-36 BL motor. It is 3600kV.

Things it needs:

This T-Rex is missing the tail rotor assembly, but does have the tailcase. It also needs a new tail linkage. It needs 2 56's couple servos also.

It also comes with a 9CAPS. It is the airplane version, but it has all of the heli programming in it. I don’t have the manual or anything for it. It does come with a module and a R148DF FM receiver. Both are on channel 55. It has the stock battery and the CAMPAC 16kb module.


Now, business. Although I have put some bucks into this project, 100% of the money will be going to Brandon’s parents. I am trying to get as much as possible for this stuff. I will figure out some more details about payment or whatever when the time comes.

Brandon’s obituary was timed out or something. It's not there anymore. If you want to call me a liar I can give you a picture of his grave.

I'm selling this instead of keeping it for many reasons. The most obvious is that it isn't mine. I have talked to his parents and they thought it was a great idea, so I know what I'm doing.

Since nobody will take the liberty to give me an offer, how does $650 shipped sound?

This money is going to Brandon’s family for their needs.

Thanks,

Nick

Beware of what? Steve has nothing to do with this anymore, whatever happened with him was not my business. This is a different heli, this has to do with falcon247, not Steve. I was not running away from the other thread, Mark said I should start over. Open your eyes.West Valley Heli Club
