[Heli] T-rex 450SE is ready for 3D flying!
Our lab bought the T-rex 450XL last year and it has been hovered or flew in simple way by 4 members in our lab. Several weeks ago, I think it is time to upgrade our skill and of course as well as the helicopter. Based on the experience with the T-rex 450XL, the T-rex 450SE became the first (maybe the only one) choice. To purchase the T-rex 450SE, we can get information and help easily.
Because I had the assembage experience of the T-rex 450XL, I started to assemble the new coming T-rex 450SE by myself. However, I encountered some troubles in setting the servos up. The side plates are different from the T-rex 450XL. I didn't sure how to fix and trim the servos with thier arms. I had no idea about the position for the speed controller, the receiver, the battery, and so on.
Finally, I decided to ask someone who is expert in this. Siau-Chong is the one who can solve my problems. He assembled the rest parts and set everything ready.
I went to Beng-ka, a RC hobby shop, to take the T-rex 450SE back. Wow, it is really a good job! Everything was considered and settled. Even the heat-shrink tube was used to protect the cable line of servos. I never think about those details before!
Here are some pictures to show the work. For your reference if you also need some example to learn the arrangement of the 450 electrical helicopter.
