Default How to tame a 450SE V2 size Heli

Hi guys, I need some help. I got a HXI450se which is copy of the trex 450se v2, this is my first ARF heli. I setup by the manual, and on my fisrt hover. I notice that with little stick input it would react petty fast. Is there anything I can do to tame this breast.

Here is my setup.

Spektrum DX6
Spektrum AR6000
Spektrum S-75 servo
Dynam 30amp ESC
Align 430L brushless
Align 315mm blades

There are exponential settings you can use. I would start by going over the Finless Bob building videos on all the steps for the heli setup. There are numerous variables. Good Luck, Doc

longer flybar with weights on the ends. A good alternative is the gorilla gear PRO-grammable paddles with removable weights.

Expo for sure will help smooth things out. Positive not Negative. Try it. Mike

Try using 325mm blades, 220 mm flybar with stock paddles. Heavier paddles, use 190mm flybar. 220mm flybar will bend depending on the weight of paddles.

I have some wood 325 blade, I just got in from Xheli.com. They send the blades any with the heli, as shown in they site picture. So, they replace them with the wooden one. I just to balance them now. I will try that hopfully it work fine.

I agree with Everything said here and can only add:

BUY A SET OF 335 BLADES ! MUCH more stable; You won't believe how much more stability (and lift) You get from these.

Buy one set and try them !

Hey, Buddy !
The 200 is like a mini T-REX as far as stability and 3-d capability. I kid You not. I couldn't believe the stability in such a tiny thing. Don't get Me wrong, it can get away from You, it's just not quirky like alot of others.

It is a TRUE CCPM heli. The Tail is rock solid with GY401.
Parts are aluminum and well machined. I got the Shaft driven tail; not saying it's better, just what I got. Easy to convert to belt, though.

Hope You like many small moving parts!

One tip though, throw in a bunch of EXPO, this thing could probably outrun a T-REX, some say they can.

Gary ~

The headspeed coming from those little Gaui's are sick ! 3,000-3,700 or something like that ?! I just came across this video that rotorydoc showed me of the Gaui and its impressive... He's got one also and loves it.

Its Nick Maxwell and he's going balistic with it in his garage in everyform imaginable ! Pure crazy...Lol..
