Default "450xxx"

Got my 450x in April 2013... this was my second heli right after learning to fly the MSR. And without the use of Phoenix, I plunged right into teaching myself how to fly CP.

Many flights and many crashes and many rebuilds later, here is the current version of the 450x. I call it the 450xxx. For this and last rebuild (I'm soon retiring this bird because I'm flying a 600x now) I went all out with the best electronics I could afford to see what this bird could be capable of. (with plans that I could move the electronics onto a future 450 project)

motor: Scorpion HK-2221-6v2
pinion: Align 11T
esc: YGE 40 with governor
main blades: stock (with added stickers for better disc visibility - they are "cubesmith" rubix cube stickers :p )
tail blades: stock
lipo: pulse 2250mah 45c
cyclic servos: MKS ds93
tail servo: MKS ds95i
canopy: blade upgraded fibreglass canopy (I trimmed it to reduce weight and better airflow and look)
extra upgrades: the tail servo aluminum bracket / carbon fiber vertical tail fin / removed horizontal tail fin - kept stock plastic boom bracket
