Default DO NOT LISTEN TO THE MANUAL ENTIRELY

The manual gets most of the info right in setting up your 450X. Unless you know what you're doing, it's a good idea to listen to the manual. For example, there are certain reverses you need to put in on the Spektrum transmitters.
THIS IS BIG:
DO NOT FOLLOW THEIR THROTTLE CURVE (at first)!
It says to put the idle up at 100% on all stick positions. THIS IS A HAZARD
When I got my 450x, I did not see good flight times at 80%. I now run this thing at 70% with more than enough power and get 4min (on aftermarket servos - stock battery)
I caution you about these high head speeds for a different reason though. They do NOT put thread locker on the head assembly. My first week of owning this, I had my blades fly off. I dont want to know the damage if I had the throttle at 100% let alone 70%.

In short, always put on threadlocker and make the heli run at something reasonable...
