I need to tap into the great knowledge base again. I've been a nitro guy since getting into this hobby and somehow from someone who "was never going to get an electric heli", I just bought the 450SA ARF combo. It came down to either the Blade 400 or the 450sa and after reading about every thread on these two helis decided on the trex. When I was picking up the heli at the LHS, I met a fellow club member who has one, and also confirmed like RR members, that the trex was the way to go. This was purchased to improve my sport flying skills while learning FF and to keep repair costs lower than my Evo 50 when things go wrong.
So here's the first of what I know will be many questions from an electric noob. I'll be using my 9C and have an extra receiver that came with it. Could I use it or should I get a smaller one. The one I'm looking at if I have to get one is the Hitec 6 ch 26872. this brings me to next question. I'm going to use a 401 gyro, which means I'll need all 6 slots to connect the servos and gyro. How do you plug the power to the receiver, Ive always had a spare channel I could use.

Thanks for the help,
Dave

berg 7 is the best receiver for small helis. make sure you get a matching crystal when you order it.

I don't know about your Hitec reciever but recievers for mini and micro helis have a channel designated for the throttle, and that is where you plug your esc into. Then when you plug up your battery it supplies power to the reciever and the heli. Hope this helps!
