This heli is far from dead, I bolted a trex 450 FBL directly to the main shaft of the 450x. Swapped the motor and esc with horizon parts and only put the vbar on there to try something different.

Didn't have to do any of the part swaps but we all want to play and I know this heli will be here for another 10 years no issues.

Cheap parts are #1 for learning smack so go buy a used 450x and if you can't find one pick up the 330.
