trex 500/apache
hi, What speed control would you recommend i use with my scorpion 1210kv motor in my 500trex? i currently have the align which has built in BEC but would prefer another set up, this is going in my rc aerodyne 500apache with four bladed head and tail i have sitting hear. should i use a seperate battery for my rx or just run everything off my main battery, any advice would be appreciated. In my area there are not many heli flyers so i only really learn anything about the heli's from you guys on the forum and the sim, no 3d but can fly trex 450 around all directions confidently but only like scale flying and helis, thanks fellas

I've been flying my 500 with the stock Align electronics with no issue. In a scale heli you really won't be pushing the electronics hard. The only issue I see is cooling due to the fuse. I also am doing the Apache but the Skyhunter version. Does yours use a different main gear? The stock Align seems to close for comfort as far as the fit in the fuse.

I had to install the hew gear for the belt drive but the main gear is the stock Align part. Pulling that gear off the stock part was a chore. A bit of heat and persuading got it off. I did have to drill it out just a bit to get it on the new shaft. The side frames need a bit of cleaning up in the slots but otherwise everything fit well.
