Default Trex 450s tail fails forced to invert auto

A nice morning flight ends in a crash. My tail somehow fails while Im inverted. I decide not to flip the heli over in case of miss orientation, so I decide to hit Throttle Hold and invert auto with a spinning tail. Damage was only a bent flybar. For some strange reason after bench testing, all electronics were fine, gyro, tail servo, and tail controls were all working. What I did find was the plastic tail rotor gear in the stock 450s tail assembly disintegrated. To fix I disassembled the tail assembly and pressed on a copterX 450 metal tail rotor gear I found at the bottom of a pile of spares.

Trex 450s tail fails forced to invert auto.wmv (3 min 27 sec)



While Im at it may as well post this from the day before.

The drive end bearing in the stock 430L 3550KV failed after a few crashes. I dismantled the motor to replace the bearing and discovered it was not much use. For 1. I could not find a bearing and 2. The shaft was worn where the bearing seats. So I bought a no name brand 3680KV brushless motor off EBay for AUD$12.00. This flight is the 7th flight with this motor.

Default Whaaa Hoooo turned my first circle today!!!

Just recently took off my training gear, and just started flying stunt mode, and today my first complete circle. I'm starting to get all kinds of confidence. Does that mean a crash is soon to come? Anyways here's the vid, I had a good time.

Like that profile picture, cute.


Hope not on the crash! This poor boy has a hard time getting the funds for crash repair.
That's one of the things that holds back my progress! I need to win the lottery!

You just made my mind up on whether to get that canopy or not. It looks great.

Default Here is a pic of my 450V2

I've been into helis for several years & have a couple of MX400s. I think that I can retire them now because this one is one bad machine.

Default New Trex

I recently bought this heli used. The first pic I couldn't wait for better weather to fly, The second pic was out at a local soccer field where I go to fly on lunch breaks. The snow was gone but it still had not warmed up that much yet. I will have more pics as soon as the weather gets warmer and I can convince someone to come take pics when I go fly.

Thumbs up

CopterX 450SE V2, almost ready for prime time:



Not so sure about the pilot, though. Shown here with one of my new, really cheap two buck canopies.

P.S. I don't store my lipos in the case, just put one there for the photo.
