I pretty much wrecked everything i have. I somehow managed to burn the esc out on my 450 while swapping TXs - left the new tx in idle up (idiot me). 5.5 goes into LVC as soon as i liftoff, along with the battery heating up badly after 3 minutes of flying (toasted batteries). My 8J is pretty much wrecked since the LCD is prone to cutting out in use.

Now I have to decide which one i want to fix first, 5.5 or 450 - i likely will just focus on the 5.5 for now, since its pretty much decked out. Just need to throw in a BEC and get better batteries.

Well I've been gathering parts and preparing to build the Agile 5.5 for awhile.
So far, this is what I've got :

KDS Agile 5.5 Kit
NTM RotorDrive 600 1220kV
Futaba BLS253 Cyclic servos
Futaba BLS256 HV tail servo
Mikado VBar Silverline Pro
Zippy 5000mAh 6S 20C batteries

Setup is built for basic flight, no 3D or any hard maneuvers yet. Will upgrade the motor, ESC and batteries when I start to move into sport flight. Pictures in second post!
