Default Blade 450 bible by Thalios

Hello guys,

Welcome to the blade 450 bible. In here, you'll find all the information for all aspects of the Blade 450 3D helicopter.

Bear with me as i put all the stuff together. Should be ready soon!



Box opening verification This will help you do a quick check to make sure it flies perfect right away!

Tools required to help you do quick fix and repairs!

You don't want to be waiting on your local hobby shop for parts after a crash do you? Check this section on the most common spare parts.


Sooner or later, you'll need to check the head and tail assembly. Why? Sorry to break the news to you, but yes, YOU WILL CRASH and you'll need to put it back together!


I CRASHED!@#$%$%$#%? Now what?

Click here to see the diagnostics sections (still under construction).
- Adjusting the trims/swashplate
- Head assembly
- Tail assembly
- Head assembly
- Link lengths
- Flybar seesaw bearing replacement!
- Motor bearing replacement prodecure


Want to upgrade? My usual rule for upgrading a part is this: If you break it in the normal course of operation, replace it with a better part. If it doesn't break and does the job, just leave it! Here some lists:

Upgrades!

Complete official blade tail upgrades
Complete official Blade head parts upgrade
3rd party tail upgrades

Just another thank you for all the time you're putting into this. It's definitely above and beyond the call of duty.

What seems to be the problem with keeping the website ?? please try to bring it back if possible. Navigating was so much better at the website...much better organized..

Nonetheless...said this before...thanks for the work..

Added the tail upgrades section, as well as changed a bunch of little omissions in the assemblies.

Keep the comments, suggestions and women coming... Oh wait?

Any idea which video shows how to properly level the flybar and paddles? I'm almost done with my repair - and ready to tackle setup.

Are links to parts okay? I'm having trouble locating the Traxxas body washers you recommend.

Default Flybar Seesaw replacement

I got my aluminum flybar seesaw today. Just wondering if I'll have to remove the seesaw bearings to swap it out?

from what I read, pulling the seesaw bearings and getting them back in is a PITA.
I'll wait until the plastic one breaks before I upgrade it.

I did get my alum tail servo mounts on last nite.. The tail servo will not budge. +1
