Checked tracking and my 500 ESP is in town at the fedex facility and should arrive today, can't wait. I'm going to take pictures as I go along. I've got everything but batteries and a gyro. Ordering a GY401 this week since I have to wait til march for the GY520. Then hope to order some batteries within the next couple of weeks. Going to use a 3S to set up the servos for now.

My setup is going to be the stock align cyclic servos, stock motor and esc, AR7000 rx, helidirect dampers, align CF boom, ino lab HG-D261 tail servo, GY401 and then GY520 when it comes out. Going to try out the stock motor and esc just to see how it is but will soon get a Scorpion 3026-1400kv and Phoenix 80 amp esc. Batteries are going to be three airthunder 2200mah 6S.

I'm pretty excited to get this up and running. I sold my caliber 30 to get this. I think this is going to be a different caliber of machine compared to the caliber 30, hahaha. So I'll have this and my little trex 450 and possibly a tex 600 in the near future.

I'll post picts when it arrives.

I see no need for more power than the stock motor w/ 13T and speed controller. I am only flying 4 min flights, mild sport and some 3d moves and pulling arund 1400-1500 mAh. Have fun with the T-Rex.

2200Mah paks will give you 3-3.5 min on that heli with stock setup

but they fly great

Gee, just in time for the blizzard and -20 degree temps later this week.

I broke down and put the torque tube upgrade in mine this past week. After two hovering flights in the driveway right after Christmas, the front end of the boom shows evidence of belt rubbing.

The 5S 3300mah Zippy packs, the stock ESC, motor, and 15-tooth pinion seem to be quite adequate for this heli.

The Hitec HS5245s seem fine on cyclic, and the 401/9257 seem solid on the tail

Tomorrow my MIP 0.9 mm hex driver is supposed to arrive. Perhaps that means I can finish up my little 250.

When the snow melts, we can drag race our 500's....

Hehehehehe, drag race our helis, Your On lol

Almost got it done, just have to finish up with the servos and then put in a gyro (might borrow one off the 450) and get some batteries here soon I hope. Build wasn't too bad.
