T-REX 500 GYRO AND BATTS
My friends,

What is the best choice for a T-REX 500 ESP Superior Comb

gy 401 with 9254
or
gy 401 with 9257

And about batts?

Can anybody show me good batts?

Regards

9257....you'll have a hard time running that 9254 on the 500 as it's a full size tail servo.

Regarding lipos...lot's of choices, I'd say go with any 6S 3000mah lipo.

yup, lots of choices on lipos. Would you prefer longer flight times or more power?

There are a lot of decent gyro/servo combos, this question seems to be asked about every other day. That's the bad thing about the internet, it has no collective memory.

401/9257 work OK, you can stick a 9254 on if you make your own mount for the servo, though it's big.

Give serious consideration to the Inertia 860 gyro (bought mine from Heliproz), and replaced a 401 on my Trex 500 with it. Out of the box performance improvement of this gyro over the 401 was quite noticeable. For the price, it beats the 401 hands down, and the 401 is still a good gyro. I'm seriously considering selling my 401s so I can replace them all with the 860. That would be something on the order of 10 401s up for sale.

Batteries? Hobby City/Hobby King has some super prices on some very good batteries...about $50 for a 6S 2650 mah, 30C LiPo pack.

Your question has no right answer, but a lot of good opinions.

Im running a full size servo on my tail, you can just use one of the 600e tail servo mount, I used my dremel to cut one out of an old g10 frame I had.

With a full size servo and Outrage 6s 2500 mah the CG is Ok when the canopy is on.

the 500 flys perfectly fine with a 9257

401 you can out grow your first year if you progress fast.

I still love the logitech 2100t and for the dollar its hard to beat

Either the 9254 or 9257 will work fine...hell, my friend has the 9254 on his 450...

But of the two, the 9257 is the better match.

JR 770 3D and the 9257. I have been using this combo with great success. Great holding power, smooth piro rate and you can pick them up used for just a little more than a 401.

Some people have trouble setting up this gyro but just set it up as the directions indicate and not like a 401 and you will be happy with the results.

I'm running a spartan gyro with a 9257 and the performance is awsome.....as far as batts I'm running the Kong Power and that batt is the best batt i've run. I have over 100 flight on it and no puff!
You have alot of options.....depends how much cash you want to spend!

From those choices, go with a 401/9257 and Outrage 6 cell 3000mAh packs.It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
