You only need 4 servos: 3 for the swashplate and one for the tail.

As for a good web site, I would recommend HeliFreak. "Finless" Bob White has an entire section, accessible from the main page, where he has done a ton of setup videos, including an entire series on the T-Rex 450 SE.

I can vouch for sure that unless You are 'Grandfather Cookied' in with them, You will have to sign up for Free Membership to access any video clips there from here on out. WELL WORTH IT! !

I guess I can't blame them.

I fly and like the TowerPro SG90's, they are cheaper but good nylon gear servo's. I have found them for $25 for 4 of them.

I recently got the Hitec HS-65HB's and will install them for cyclic soon.

I use a Futaba 9650 digital servo on the tail, although not necessary I like the precision of digital.

What comes with the DX7?

FYI, I originally set my Heli up with Spektrum DS285's that came with the DX7. They failed (gears stripped) in the first big crash that I had. I am now running the HS-65MG's, which seem to be the current standard.
