RJX 50 Electric...
Well....I managed to get a couple of successful flights on this new RJX 50 Electric.

other than the fact that it's a FAT PIG...and the Torque Tube Design is very fragile...it flies pretty well.

The TT is so flimsy that if you breathe on it wrong it bends...I must have bent the 1st one while sliding it in the boom because it created such a vibration and wobble on the 1st flight that the screws holding the servo arms on vibrated loose after 30 seconds and crashed the heli

Oh well...guess I should have test spooled with no blades before flying it...lol..

after dinking around with 3 more Torque tubes and bending them trying to get them installed straight...I finally suceeded on my 4th Torque tube installation attempt.

it flies well now...nice and smooth

only downside is that it's a FULL POUND heavier than my Logo 600's and you can feel it.

it's a pretty nice looking heli though...

I just wouldn't recommend it if you want something fast, light and easy to get parts for

This is the setup:

Spektrum 6040 servos on 6 volts
Futaba 9251 tail servo
Jazz 55-10-32
Castle BEC
MAH main blades
KBDD 92mm tails
Gyrobot 700
Scorpion 4035/630kv(spinning 2200rpms)
EM 10s 4200mah 30C pack
Ar7000

RJX
You can still get anything RJX you want...you just have to order direct or special order from Helidirect ...at least I think they do special orders?

I LOVED that RJX 50 nitro...By far the BEST nitro 50 I ever owned...I only got rid of it to go electric..

The X90 electric has been on my mind as well
