Crash resistant landing gear strut for the T-Rex 450 from JCS Hobbies designed due to the many requests made for an upgraded gear strut that does more than just collapse on extreme hard landings. Their in house testing with repeated drops straight down from over 6 feet showed no damage whatsoever to the strut. There are also holes for an antenna mounting tube between the skid mount holes and the first structure opening. If you are looking for a gear strut that will take the abuse of hard landings without fail, then you have found your product.

I went a cheaper route on the servos. I got hs-65HB's for cyclic and futaba 3153 for tail. Never buy cheap gyros. They all suck.

Sell the Align lipo online before you put a connector on it. Buy one of these brands: Thunder Power, Flight Power, Air Thunder, or Kong Power. You will not regret it I promise.

try this link for the gear. This isn't the cheapest site for parts BUT i find myself always going back to them because of their vast inventory selection.

16 pages of trex450 parts.

ok. got it.

Maybe i've been lucky BUT i've been buying parts from them for over 2 years now and NEVER had a problem. That's another reason i always go back. i dont even want to know how much i've spent there.
I also do verify all my CC statements every month. i feel everyone should especially if you shop online. call me old school.

AND NEVER, never use an ATM/visa for any online purchases, or at restuarants. NO MATTER IF IT's a $10 part.
i rather put a $500. purchase on a CC and then go bank site and transfer the funds back to the CC. YEs it takes decipline but i've gotten used to it and it gives me a piece of mind.

TOOOO many stories of checking accounts being emptied!!
