ranma. Thank you for sharing your build pics. But they are GINORMOUS! LOLOLOL. I have to scroll left to right to see the whole picture.

I am checking this X50E lately. I love the stock looks of it and I can share my 3300mah pack that I use with my 600efl. So, it is an easy build. But what are your thoughts so far with regards to the over all quality of the kit?

Sorry about the size i have the pics located on a web server else where as for quality from when i was building it top notch i had no issues other than a few linkage lengths in the manual not right. It was a breeze to build the only couple of things i have that i don't like are The bearing blocks, The plastic gyro mount, The plastic battery plate, & also the battery plate not being wider if it had laying the batts on there side would make them easy to install.

Cheers Luke.

That is so much better. Thanks. Kinda makes me wonrder, whats up with the plastic bearing blocks. I can see that is the first thing some of our fellow members upgrade. I guess it is ok to fly it stock? I am no 3D flyer anyway.

Wish there is more discussion about this X50E and more vids. It will be my first Thunder Tiger product if ever.

Looks like he's teaming up 2x5s packs, however with that 510kv motor maybe he meant 12s (2x6s)..?

I agree on the plastic mainshaft bearing blocks, I use the metal ones.

Could be that plastic are adequate for the N, but for an electric 600 with 700 power, the metal bearing blocks is better IMO.
