Default New T-Rex 450 Parts reference

I finally got tired of searching all sorts of sites to find what parts are available in which combinations for my Rex. So I started a simple web page that I will continue to update with every part I can find - both Align and aftermarket. So far I mostly have only the Align parts loaded up. Thanks very much to Finless for hosting this page for me.

Check it out here.

http://spork.rdlohr.com


If you find this useful, please point me to any upgrade parts that are worth including.

That's the goal. So if you guys know of some new after-market frame, main-gear, landing gear... post it here or PM me so I can add it to the page.

I haven't decided whether it makes sense to add motors, LiPo's, servos, ESC's, BEC's etc. as yet. For the moment I think I probably won't include all that stuff.

For the Align stuff I wasn't planning on including "where to buy". For the after-market stuff I figured I would include those links.

I'd like people to post all the good after-market parts and I'll add them to the page (along with where to get them).

Thanks Awamori. Any time you guys find an Align or aftermarket part I don't have please post it or PM. I'll try to keep the site up to date.

Thanks, this is exactly what I've been looking for. It will save a lot of ppl a lot of time.

It would be a nice bonus if you would include a description of the items telling what version the parts fit and which version is better/newer. Or maybe a way for ppl to leave comments on the parts that have multiple versions and after market parts, such as the tail, blade lengths, and flybar lengths, etc.

I won't be able to do either of those things in the short term. But if this becomes a popular tool it will warrant those types of updates. Thanks for the suggestions.

Thanks again. I realize that would be time consuming. Maybe you could enlist some help from other helifreaks. It's been a long time since I've done any web projects or I would volunteer.

btw I could be wrong but I think the 190mm flybar was discontinued and replaced with the 220mm.

That may be true. Most of what's posted so far came directly off the Align site. Both the 190 and 220 were listed there.

Nice job Spork.

As far as I know this is the only place to get Gorilla Gear landing gear and Programmable paddles: http://www.rchover.com/trex_stock_parts

These are a popular and worthwhile upgrade - the gear are almost indestructable and for those of us looking to improve visibility, the garish yellow skids and paddles are helpful.

I'm also a fan of the following items (although Finless might refuse to host one of them ):


Trueblood red dampers: http://www.readyheli.com/TREX_450_SE.../dampeners.htm

Trueblood swash levelling tool: http://www.readyheli.com/T_Rex_Swash..._p/leveler.htm

These are also useful:

Thanks Kenneth. I was up late last night improving the format and adding items to the page. I've added the Gorilla Gear and Gorilla Paddles (and a bunch of other parts). I also have a bunch of items I've downloaded but haven't yet added. I sent the updated pages to Finless, but I'm guessing he hasn't yet had a chance to post the updates. I'll add all the items you mentioned here. Thanks.

Hey lets not forget our own resident Gyro mount and Finset maker Rick. He should be added to this database for sure.

Yup. He's already on my list. I'm actually in the process of updating the page right now.
