My trex 600N has been sitting for 3 years unused. Its pristine though. Never been crashed and only flew a couple times. I got new batteries for the TX and RX. I was wondering what else you guys think would be needed to be changed.

have you replaced/checked the fuel lines and how is the rear bearing in the engine....
How are the links? pop them off and on to be sure they didn't get brittle..

if you feel confident it will fly, then start out slow and check for parts coming loose.

Yes, and with that much time passing, it would be well worth the small amount of $ and time to change it out.

Besides replacing fuel lines, you might also look at getting a new pickup if it was the "fuel magnet" type.

+1 on replacing your bearing in the engine!

Don't forget the rest of the bearings on the aircraft. Oil and grease them as needed. Main shaft, head, tail, etc..
