Depending on what size pack I fly, 5000 12s or 4000 12s I can get anywhere from 4 min to 5 min. The power is much more than I had with my nitro and its so much easier to use, no cleanup or tuning, just plug and play.

Ok
Well I guess that the trex 700 is so good in looks and structure that no mods or beefing up are needed
If there is no mods than show me your worst plant (crash) The more dirt the better If you have the pictures I'd like to see befor during and after rebuild

One simple "mod" I did was to add a cross-brace for the boom supports. Keeps them from vibrating as much and makes them stronger. You can buy them but I made mine for free with leftover CF boom support cut to length and a zip tie. Similar to this, I don't have a picture of my Trex setup yet.

EDIT: Another simple mod I did, add a 4th tail rod guide = less tail rod vibrations

and yet another I will do, reline the clutch bell with a Raptor-90 clutch liner to reduce the clutch bell to clutch gap.

and yet another - my kit didn't have the tail transmission drilled for a boom holding screw so I did that. the newer kits do have that AFAIK.

Flies AWESOME! It does NOT fly like a Trex anymore! With the 0 delta setting and Rotortech paddles, it tracks better than anything I've flown.

Nope, still 12mm mast. I bored out the head. There are more details here.

I changed my fuel pick to the outside hole when i when to a fuel magnet for easy of changing foam. i also add anoterh fuel nipple to the inside hole then run hose from it to outside the frame and capped it off. Now thats were i add fuel thru so i'm not pushing fuel thri the foam with my eletric fuel pump . maybe this will help my fuel magent foam last longer. It also fills up the tank quicker... could take a picture later if you like. I use a align striaght thru filter no too...
