Ok so now I have my Trex put together and Ive been looking through the galleries to see how everyone has their helis setup (EQUIPMENT LAYOUT). Ive noticed that I see very very few electric birds with a RX battery pack. But most all the gassers use a RX battery pack.

Are you electric guys useing power from the main motor battery somehow to run the radio reciever?

It's called a BEC (Battery Eliminator Circuit). It does, in fact, use power from your main battery. Most ESCs (Electronic Speed Controller) have one built-in...

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..
Nope.
It's ***ked!!!
RE-KIT!!!!!

I remember seeing BEC in my papers that came with the ESC. I didnt know what it was. I do now Thanks for the info. So all I do is plug the ESC j plug into the trottle of the RX and that will power the RX. Got it thanks again.

The 600E does use an RX battery the 450 does not.
