Default T-Rex 500 bible

OK.. I take notes when I get a new heli.. mostly from this forum... and I call them 'bibles'.... here is the latest T-Rex500 bible.. may be helpful to some of you out there.

This one isnt too big since most who get a 500 know what they are doing.. but still it points to some interesting and informative threads.

Good luck all us 500 newbies!

A section on cases for the bible:

Aluminum Cases - Sure-Flite: $120

http://www.sureflite.com/sureflite/p...=0&pid=DOAL500



HeliHobby: $109

http://www.helihobby.com/html/trex_5...tml#PARTHH6328



They appear to be almost identical - the HeliHobby one has 4 latches.

Soft Case - Readyheli

I will add the case.

I figure most who have a 500 know their stuff so I won't make this a complete guide A-Z like the b400 and 450 bibles.

Just a handy guide of links I want to remember is all.. etc..

I should really REALLY add my laundry basket solution to the 500 bible!

Here's what I do...Big white plastic laundry basket... first I put in the tools and chargers.. then a big fluffy towel... then lipos and radio.. then another big fluffy towel.. then the 450 and 500... it all fits!!

Ready for the field baby!
