Default Trex 700e V2 + AR7200BX = Pure Awesomeness!

Aside from the ICE2 80HV throttle calibration PITA the unit is and has been flawless. I will be using these gems on all my heli's from now on.

I love my 500 efl pro with AR7200BX.. Im now trying to take home a new 600 pro or 700.. whichever one I pick it will have the beast in it.. I saw a 700 tonight with beast and it looked nice.

Yea I'm actually considering either a Gaui X7 or an Outrage Fusion 50 for my next heli. Either way you know it will have a 7200BX in it

Nice looking heli....Very clean build....

I noticed one thing on the first picture in regards to the ESC connections that I would like to comment on. You may want to consider running a CC Cap Pack with the length of wire from the ESC to the battery and you also might want to consider loosing the EC5 connection by the ESC and go to a direct soldered wire down to the battery. I saw this picture and feared that your ripple voltage could be quite high with this arrangement which is one of the root causes to the Castle ESC detonations. What do you logs say for ripple voltage?

Just a friendly observation....

I was a little concerned about the wire length but the ripple voltage is well under 2 volts so I'll probably just leave it.

Is that 2V in flight or just on spool up? Just checking.....

Nice, I put one on my 700E and it's just pure enjoyment to fly now.

Is cc 80hv ice2 sufficient for this size motor?

+1 on the wire length comment from mtuccio. Not worth risking the heli, especially running a 700MX with an 80 amp ESC. The cap pack is cheap insurance.

The only design difference I would have liked to have seen is 2 remote ports instead of one and no built-in antenna. IMO, it would give a wider variety of mounting options.

I would move the long antenna wire outside the frame. With it inside the frame, it is probably blind 99% of the time due to the carbon frames blocking the radio signal. Just my opinion.
