Guys.. This is gonna be my T-Rex 450 to 470L build thread.. All the parts have arrived too for the 450L.. I'm just waiting for the 470L parts to arrive (Not many of those parts from that heli are needed), so I'll end up with a nice 470L instead of the 450L.. It'll be the first conversion that will be shown in this thread (I can build better than I can Fly) HEH...

as for the FBL unit.. I Have decided to use the E-Razor 3GS one (I have 2 of them), instead of the Align 3G one.. Unless someone says other wise.. Because there's no setup button on it or pots to adjust on it (Better for me), as it done all in the software (I heard that the E-Razor is the best collective beginner heli, and as for the FBL unit.. It might still be in beginner mode anyway.. I've installed the program and all I do is hookup the unit to my laptop (I was lucky that the USB program cable, plus CD too was in the heli box).. Anyway, what I have to do is just click on the beginner setting (There's beginner, moderate, and expert mode), and it will send all the correct settings that is needed onto the FBL unit (Maybe a few tweaks from me after hooking it up the my receiver), as I have no help here trying to setup the much harder Align 3G one.. Even though I found the user manual, and needed no help from that member.. HEH

You see, as for hooking the unit up to the T-Rex.. I'll just do it the same way as the other one that is in my other E-Razor FBL CCPM heli (Came already to go with the original radio gear installed still), and the seller said that it's never been in the air.. Just gathering dust... (Looking at it I can tell), so the radio should still be at the factory default settings (But I won't be replacing the crappy servos in it), as it's not worth it (I didn't pay much for it anyway), so I'll try flying that heli first.. Not the T-Rex 470L.. Once it's built...

But one thing on my mind, is that I don't know if the spacing between the 450L side frames are the same as the 470L heli ones.. Because the motor on the 470L is a bit bigger than the 450L one, so it might rub against the smaller heli's frames, or just to wide to go in. I won't find out till the Dominators 460 MX motor arrives (I have ordered the 470L motor plate too), so could just build the 470L Dominator anyway and have 2 Align heli's ,as I do have the important parts coming. (Would need just a few bit's a bobs to complete it).. (Sitting on my nice heli shelf's.. Free of dust), as the shelving unit has a glass front, and then I can admire 2 nice high quality helicopter's..

Oh No.. Me bloody newbie thing is showing again, according to another member here.. No comment from him PHEW!!!! (Maybe I'm finely of the hook)..

Your buddy is just waking up so , “I’m back” !!!! I don’t want to disappoint by keeping quiet !!!

My only comment/observation is that you’re going in too many different directions at the same time ..... hard to accomplish anything in that mode.....

And yes, your “newbiness” still shining through brightly!!

I’ve put the popcorn on .....

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....
