Default Where the heck do I start? TRex450

Ive regained interest in getting my Trex 450 flying again.


It's basically a Frankenstein of its former self. I have no idea what frame this is. I remember buying this one off Ebay because the other one had a crappy design holding the tail boom and it would slip causing the belt to loosen. Aftermarket swash plate, chinese metal tail parts.. etc.

After a crash because of a failed cheapy servo I began to put it back together, well that was over 2 years ago, and now I have no clue what I'm even looking at.

Im trying to figure out how to get this thing running again, but it's not looking pretty.. The servo that crapped out was replaced by a Eflite S75, and it doesnt look like it's going to be fitting into this frame.

Should I just scrap this and use it for parts, and purchase an EXI-450 ARF kit for 37$ or perhaps upgrade to the 500 size?

That's not even a trex clone frame,, I have no idea sorry. I'd start from scratch with a Trex 450. Even if you buy one used off of RunRyder or HeliFreak. I saw a 450 SA on the helifreak classifieds for $199.00, & you probably could get it a little cheaper with some negotiations. I have a Exced Raptor G2 that just need a motor that I can sell you still in the box in excellant condition with spares for it. The original brushed motor burned out & I bought a Trex 450 local so the Raptor got shelved You can see the bird on X-Heli or e-mail me at [email protected] if your interested

I bought the EXI 450 carbon fiber ARF. I'll swap over all my stuff.. I also bought a new gyro.

Perhaps I should upgrade to some better servos so they dont take this one out.
