oh yes, the 600le
The build is pretty much straight forward. I did replace the clutch liner. there have been peeps breaking clutches. I just used the raptor 90 blue clutch material to reline my 600le. The stock clutch setup has too much gap between the clutch and liner. Using the raptor 90 liner helps fill this gap.

the best bird for quality and bang for the buck raptor 50 titan or the better yet the raptor SE already has the major upgrades on it. the parts dont cost alot of $$$$ and almost everyone knows about them very well known heli's.

Question, for the money what is the best on a good Heli TX since I am looking for a new one. I was thinking at JR but also like futaba, just seeing what everyone choices on the ones they like

back again as well....
I too just got back in. Albeit I fly Hirobo, just because I like them from past experience, I needed a radio aswell. I had a JR10x last. I looked at JR and Futaba. After reading and comparing,I went another route, the Hitec Aurora 9. It had the best bang for the buck and great reviews. After setting up my Hirobo 90 I am very pleased. The Hitec radio was easy and intuitive..give it a shot...

FWIW

The new Futaba 8FG is a great radio, particularly for helicopters - very low CCPM latency, all possible mixes/programming, very reliable and "shootdown-resistant" 2.4GHz FASST technology (integrated, no separate Tx module), ball-bearing gimbals, supports SD cards to store an enormous number of model settings ( or to make backup copies ), well balanced and sleek, modern look, rather simple programming ( and similar to the Futaba high-end TX models), quite nice (new!) scroll wheel, adjustable backlight, two (per model!) configurable timers with alarms, plus timers for model total flight time and total TX uptime, programmable throttle kill ( and idle-down for airplanes), up to 5 programmable flight conditions (heli and glider) and up to 5 throw and expo rates (by switches or by condition), programmable condition delay, all channels and switches fully configurable - overall it has most of the features of the high end radios - with a surprisingly good price on top of that. Also I think there are lots of promos running for it at this time ( 2nd Rx for 10$ and the likes ),

And actually it has 10 channels - 8 proportional, 2 switched. I have bought one and can not be happier with it.

Take your pick either motor will serve you well...

For no real specific reasons i'd get the YS.
