Default EXI carbon Fiber 450 Setup???

Hey I just purchased some EXI CF 450's from Xheli. Does any one have some good detailed pics of thier setup and gear layout? Please post what you have.
Also what manual is best for this one? I have the one with the Smaller CF Frame.

Oh, and any info on good servos ,ESC and motor would be much appreciated
Thanks

I dont have any pics to offer and I suggest taking a look at the 450 section on helifreak, There is a lot more info and an entire thread on pics alone.

The trex 450 manual is a really good place to start.

As far as servos, ESC, and motor, the options are limitless!!!!!

Trust me, just keep an eye on this thread........I am sure that Rob, Peter, Simon, Jeff, Tinkman, and all the other will be of waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay valuable help!!!!

Welcome to the chaos....LOL

Shawn

p.s. When you say the smaller frame, are you talking about the same frame as the trex 450 pro?

Sorry, but I am not real familiar with the EXI's .

Also, check out this website.....it was actually put together by the guys here....

Hey,

This is a great helicopter, but very frustrating to build.. I have built 2 of them, and the frustration comes from the lack of space inside the frame..

I managed to squeeze in the RX and the ESC on my first one but the 2nd one I just put them on the outside..

I will do a detailed video for you tomorrow but in the meantime hopefully this will help...

My avatar is what it looks like now...

Here is a time lapse build of my first 450 Pro.. it still flies great 400 flights later..

Finally a close up photo of my first 450.. routing the servo leads around the main gear was a drama but hot glue works well..

More vids tomorrow..
