Default hk 450 tt pro build

This one
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dproduct=10901
with thiese items chosen so far.
Motor: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idproduct=6261
esc: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idproduct=3729
gyro: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dproduct=10113
battery: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idproduct=9394
main servos, (how many do I need?)http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idproduct=9392
How is this set up looking so far? I have a pinion and the bullet connectors already picked out along with the XT60 connectors for the battery.

For the tail servo will one of these be better than another?
Maybe this one is a good one. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idproduct=9442
or one of these would be better

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idproduct=9978
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dproduct=12450
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idproduct=9657
i hope pasting those links worked.

for tools i have a set of ball link pliers , also a pinion removal tool.
for a pitch guage i picked this one.
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dproduct=11448
for a rotor/prop balancer i picked this one.
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idproduct=7702
Am I doing okay so far?
For a hex driver what other sizes do I need? I have a 1.5mm. How about hex drivers? what sizes?
For a swashplate leveler is the 5mm one the right one?
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dproduct=12231
Is there any suggestions to complete my helicopter and related tool list?
Thank You
Steven

I use this motor: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=6316
I have used that Sentry ESC, and also the Plush: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=2165
HK401B Gyro is ok
Battery is good
Servos: I have used Corona 929MG (including tail): http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=10345
Use the servo compare page: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ation_list.asp
That swashplate leveler is not for the 450 Pro
Hex drivers : 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 (blades). You probably need 2 x 1.5 for the feathering shaft (get a cheap second one)
Blade balancer I don't use (you can do it with two glasses - youtube...). Use a scale instead (eBay - digital scale .01g - around $10)

What about transmitter and receiver?
Charger?

this is my radio
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=8992

how have your servo selection worked out on the tail?
can you point me to the right swashplate leveler?
(You probably need 2 x 1.5 for the feathering shaft) i will need 2x 1.5 drivers for the feathering shaft at the same time?
thanks for replying, I apreciate it.
I will use the 2-3 cell charger from my plane, this one

ORIGINAL: loquito

would straight ball link plier work?are they helpful? Yes, but cheap ones will eventually break. Curved are better. Align makes a good pair
is a pitch guage a good thing to have? Yes, definitely for setting up your pitch at different throttle curves
will i need any hex drivers? I did mention a few sized in my reply. 1.5 (2 for feathering shaft), 2.0 and 2.5. Those two will be for a few cases such as blades
how many servos do i need all together? 4 all together. 3 for swashplate and 1 for tail
thank you for the help.

You didn't mention your transmitter and receiver?

Yes, 3 for the swashplate and one for the tail (connected to the Gyro)

Look at pages 14 and 16 of this manual: http://www.trextuning.com/Trex%20450SE%20Manual.pdf
