Hi everyone, My name is Shaun. Im 17 years old and got into helis a few months ago. I have decide to build a tarot 450. I could use some help with this. I don't have much money, so if anyone here can help me out with some inexpensive electronics or spares, I would be very grateful. Thank you.
Shaun

Shaun,
well first off welcome to runryder. What kind of experience do you have with flying? Also with flying there is a saying that you get what you pay for. But there are actually some things that helped me out when i was tight on money when i started flying. There are some decent cheap parts out there but not many. Also ive told many people i taught how to fly they can not go to cheap on the tail servo and gyro or it wont fly as well as it should. but ive got proven wrong on it before but thats if you get lucky. But anyways are you still learning to hover and also do you have and radio gear? like transmitter or you just starting out?

Thats a good start. Also do a search on youtube(or google, it will pop up) for cheapest 450 build. That is what I used when I first started and those videos really helped me alot. It also shows pretty much the cheapest parts to get a flyable heli. As you get better you will need to upgrade all your parts but this will get you in the air. That video series really helped me alot. I had everything he talks about pretty much and my heli flew fine for learning. Welcome to the addiction and have fun!

These are only my thoughts, I spent my last two cents on parts!
