I can see now why our young people are almost illiterate. Did you not study the English language, and how to punctuate in school?

Is that what this site is about bashing i happen to be a single parrent of 7 children one whitch is a type one diabetic and i also take care of my aunt that has alltimers. I was in the middle of getting kids ready for school and trying to feed my aunt through her feeding tube and giveing my son one of the 8 shots that he takes every day. It is nice to see that thir are some people out thir that have nothing better to do with thir time but to bash people. I thought that some of the info would be helpfull to others seeing that this is a new heli with very little info on it. So i will keep my thoughts to myself and let you all get back to your meaningless lifes of bashing

Um well if you really are an adult, and type and form sentences like that I feel sorry for when you help the kids with their homework.

It's not bashing, its very hard to read and makes no sense when grammar rules are not at least semi followed.

and just fyi, the Trex 450 Pro is not a V3, per Align. V3 will be an upgrade package for the V2.

Well I read your post, and grammar aside, you seem to be whining about small things, very very small things.

Having to use -60 on the swash mix, this is totally normal and required for many heli's, not sure how this is a negative of the kit.

Having fun mounting servos and RX in a 450, welcome to a small electric heli, they are all hard to work on. If you want something easier, buy a bigger heli!

The servo installation really does concern me to. If what he says is 100%, then having to install, then completly tear down to re-center a horn is true.

Although, there is nothing better looking, then a heli with no servos showing, and all tucked aways neatly..

Man, you guys are a tough crowd somtimes....

Brian,
the servo cage comes out in literally 4 screws.
it's made for fast changes just like the Protos servo cage.

The way you do the Pro is do everything on the servos before mounting the cage to the frame.
so power up.. center put arms on then mount it.

its very easy and this will be much easier for crash repairs than the previous designs.

Not to mention all of this info has been discussed at length in the appropriate forum... I just didnt bother to read the post when I first opened it

Remember the rule guys... if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.

But I sure would love to bash this guy for having 7 freaking kids and not being able to spell.

You think a 450 is bad. Try a 250.

crawfords...I was not bashing you or what you had to say in any way. I was simply asking a question.

What you wrote might make sense to you, but for the vast majority of the rest of us it was actually quite difficult to follow what you were saying.

Thanks for your opinion. I have attempted to punctuate what you wrote to make it easier for other people who read this thread to read what you wrote.

Hi.
I just receved the new 450 v3 and went through the build yesterday. All I can say here is what a pain. I had read that this heli was kink of like the 500. Yes the shape of the frame is but that is about where it stops.

The servos mount to the main bearing blocks, this means that you must remove the uper and lower main bearing blocks to install the servos and the tail servo is now located in the center of the main frame. No more tail boom mounts.

The set up of the radio is alot more complcated than the v2 so you just cant coppy that setup and bind a new recever.

Servo directions are reversed and you need to run -60 in the mix, and just when you think you have got it well you will have to run -60 in the pitch as well.

I will say that the new placement of the servos looks as if it will be better as the balljoints line up better than the v2. The linkage rods are all the same size, whitch makes more sence and makes the set up with the rods easy, but you need to do the set up the servos before installing them as thir is no way to center them after they are installed. You just can not get to the servo horns as they are located inside the frame.

The other problem is space. Align gives no recomendations as to where to put the recever and the manual is short on info.
As to the build, the 6 chamel recever, the one wraped in papper, fits under the battery mount inside the frame.

After a few hours i did get the 7 chanel recever to fit but it was a tight fit. No need for mounting tape here.

They have also removed the locking coller above the top main shaft bearing and it is now just a ridge in the main shaft.
This is a bit of a consern after seeing Justin Chi inverted landing last year at the fun fly. This is the spot where the main shaft broke on his heli.

I still cant beleave he landed it inverted and did not brake anything except a ball link to the tail and the main shaft, but that broke in the air.

I will post something after the first flight of this new beast.

Crawfords, dont take the comments badly. Most members here are helpful...most newcomers are not so helpful with info on the specific problems they might have....so the more experienced can get a bit sarcastic.

I really didnt know about the issues you face in day to day life. Sounds a tough 'lot' for you. Please accept my deepest apologies.

Rc helis are a great subject, I would think that a lot of flyers use this hobby as a stress buster....in a world that takes itself a bit too serious at times its great to have such hobbies to get involved in.

The Trex series is popular, a bit fiddly to work on at times but they fly well. I have a 450 XL HDE version, owned it a long time now.

There are some good sites for the Rex... http://www.trextuning.com is good but the forums are not very busy...in fact I didnt find a great welcome there but the info on the site is good.

http://www.crackroll.com is a good site, more for the learner with lots of questions and on a tight budget.

AMA members take heed! Is this the way you treat newbies at the field? If so I can see why membership is suffering.

oh please. AMA is suffering because most RC fliers are not going to clubs/fun flys at all. just park flying or in their yards.

So most don't see the use in it.

For every 1 member at the clubs/funflys there are at least 20 others you never even knew about flying in their parks/yards.

His orginal post was nearly incomprehensible but instead of fixing it when told that, he comes back with some grandiose sob story about his excuse for being illiterate.

And the entire post was a whine in the first place about non issues.
Not once did he ask for any help just a pure whine about nonsense.

please spare us.

I know what you mean man..
but to try to convince a newer heli guy to spent 150 bucks per year to come to a real club field (100 for membership and 50 for AMA) is alot harder than just roping them in.

The funny thing is though around here cops get very "upset" if the catch you park flying helis they want you to use these State/City/County owned RC parks that require club membership and AMA to fly.

I learned alot more about setups and alot more about flying once I joined the club though. there is alot to be said for that 150 bucks.
