who made the fuse?, did you get any kind of manual? , i'm not familiar with a trex 450, but if the retracts are your main problem, PM copter docter or DR. tim , or check the scale forum on here

Smile! people will wonder what you're up to!!

Pictures????
If you can post a picture, you will have a lot better chance of getting some help....
There are several fuselages out there...
I just did one that had the servo mounted under the retract plate very close to the front retract....if you have a pushrod supplied with the kit that may help you locate where the servo goes...

Good luck...Stan

Looks similar to the Ikarus airwolf body... Which was released for the Ikarus Piccolo some years back, you might have fun squeezing a trex 450 into it.

Good luck with it though.

Same One....
That looks the same as the one that I just did except yours has a blue mounting plate and the one that I did was clear... I mounted the servo under the platform to the right front with a short pushrod (was included) to the servo... I taped it to the bottom and once all was set I used a bit of hot glue on it...
Sorry, no pic's, as I did this for someone and I no longer have the heli... it is a pretty simple set up...
Also a little trick that the owner came up with was once they are working the rear wheels tend to go too far back... so set the throw so it stops where you need it on the servo and then laminate a "stop" behind the rear landing gear so that it cannot go back too far and drop the tail too low... once you get it hooked up this will make a lot more sense!!!!
Oh and I think the name of this fuse is Fusono (spelling???:confused

Good Luck....Stan

Earlier Version????
The one posted and the one that I did, did not have the servo mount as shown int he instructions.... and the front retract arm is different with a connection for the servo just below the link for the rod to the rear retracts....
But this is certainly something that can still be done.... good info... wish I had it before I started the other!!!!!
