Default My New T-Rex

I just got my new T-Rex and am excited to get started with it. My experience is with the Blade CP Pro and have become proficient with hovering tail-in, but not much more than that. Do any of you experienced T-Rex pilots have any pointers you can share as I progress to this next step?

I am going to take the model to an experienced T-Rex pilot and builder to give it a checkup before I fire it up, but I would like to know exactly what I've got here. The seller was somewhat vague on the equipment. I believe the motor is an Aon, but I don't know what type speed controller I've got, nor how to program it. Can someone please take a look at the following link and pictures to see if you might be able to identify the speed control?

I have bought a Futaba S9650 servo for the rudder control. Where and what do I need to mount the 9650 servo? I doesn't appear it will fit on the stock servo mount?

Happy Thanksgiving

To mount the 9650 I cut off the top tabs and used the side tabs to mount it on the blue aluminum 9 shaped clamps. One screw on each side.

Mike,

Thanks for identifying the esc as the 40 amp E-Flite. Do you happen to know where I might be able to find a set of programming instructions for it?

Thanks to all who replied. An expert at the local hobby shop tweaked all the linkages, blade pitch, and programmed my transmitter. This machine is awesome. What a difference between the T-Rex and what I had been flying - it's like night and day. Very, very, smooth and stable, with loads of power.
