Hausler 450 v2 2.4g RTF Helicopter. I read about the Hausler 450 here and saw the display at AMA show last week.

Here is what is in the box, only need 8 AA alkaline battery to fly.

The Hausler 450 v2 looks like a Trex 450 SA clone, the RTF Hausler 450 v2 equipped with cnc head and tail, metal frame, three 9g cyclic servos, Zd720 HH gyro, digital mini tail servo, Neodym 4000kv motor, Nao 40A esc, fiberglass main blades and canopy, a 2.4g 6 channel radio, lipo charger and a 3S Amped Up 20C 2200mah lipo pack. Here is the factory specs:

Reserved 1 - review details

The picture at the right of post #1 shows all the stuff that comes with the RTF kit, no manual included. There is a bag of spare screws and nuts, fly bar weights, Velcro straps and wire ties.

The CD contains 2 files, USB cable driver for Windows XP and the T6 config program for PC.

The Neodym NEO-5011 lipo charger looks like a generic lipo charger from most RTF kit, it required a 12V DC source using the aliger clips, the charging rate is 1.2A.

The 2.4g 6ch radio looks like a generic 2.4g radio made by FlySky, with ccpm heli function, it is a computer programmable Tx and the programming is thru the USB cable and the software from the CD, the radio has no display and buttons for programming.

A quick pre-flight check up, all the electronics works properly, swash and fly bar are level with all the trims set at center in the Tx, the switch (SW.B) on the left is flight mode switch for Norm/Idleup, on the right (SW.A) is throttle kill. The knob (VR.B) on the left is to adjust the pitch position, I set it at 11o’clock with the idle up switch on for “zero” pitch, I get -10 to +10 pitch. The knob (VR.A) on the right is to adjust the gyro gain, 9 o’clock is 50%, 9-2 o’clock is HH mode, 4-9 o’clock is rate mode, I set it at 11 o’clock.

The ZD720 HH gyro looks and works like the 401b with the setup similar to the g401 gyro, paired with a digital mini servo (no brand label in the case) that holds the tail pretty solid, there is no servo creeping in the HH mode when test at the bench.

The esc is factory default with brakes off and soft start, the motor starts smoothly.

The red light in the Rx will turn solid red once is bind with the Tx.

Mechanical wise, the factory assembler did a good job in putting the heli together, the flybar paddle is equal distant, the swash is level at zero blade pitch, the only adjustment I did was to lower the short blade link to track the main blades. Both fibreglass blades are within 0.1 g, the belt tension is a little tight, the motor gear mesh is right on.

Hey, isn't that baylander field?

Steven Chao,

#10 estarter Jan 18, 2011 01:41 AM

Yes, it is Baylands. There're many EDF fast planes flying that day, I had to dodge some of them.

Change Mode 1 to Mode 2

The Tx from the RTF kit I got is a mode 1 radio, the right stick is throttle, left stick is elevator, mode 1 radio is popular in Asia.

I fly mode 2, it is easy to change mode in the T-6A radio.

1, unscrew 4 screws from the back cover of the Tx
2, swap the detent and the spring from the 2 gimball sticks
3, optional: put a shrink tubbing in the metal spring to take out the ratchet action of the throttle stick, adjust the stick tension
4, close the back cover

5, connect the Tx to PC with the USB adaptor, run the T6 config program, power on the Tx
6, click the "getUser" button to get the Tx settings
7, click the "Stick" button, a new window will pop out, select "Mode2"
8, click the "Save" button to save the Tx settings in PC, this is the factory default settings.

is there any way i could buy it without the radio and reciever and put in my own to bind to my dx7

#14 Steven Chao Jan 18, 2011 12:06 PM

MRROCK42: Currently all of the RTF (ready to fly) come with radio & receiver... Where are you located? Is there a favorite local hobby store that you like working with? Let me talk to the local store to see if we can work something out for you.

ESTARTER: Sorry to learn that you got a Mode 1 instead of Mode2. All of the RTF kits that leaves here have been flown and tested in Mode 2. So obviously we screwed up... sorry. Let me know what we can do to correct the situation for ya.

Steven Chao,
