This is a small question that has a HUGE answer. Yes, I fly a 450 Pro. Tips? Go slowly with this one. Very slowly. Yes, setup has to be dead on. During the build, you may learn to use a digital micrometer. Do your research BEFORE buying this bird. It is completely unlike a co-ax. I would strongly suggest buying the PHOENIX (not Real Flight) flight simulator and spending at least 100 hours with the 450 before buying it. Yes, it is a sensitive bird but it is controllable. You will definitely need training gear at first. I would suggest popping over to the Helifreaks forum and reading the Align 450 threads. I would especially suggest reading the "stickies" done by Finless Bob. For ground school, Google the RADD'S School of Rotary Flight. Read each and every word. Follow each and every word.

It would be a very good idea to invest in a DX7 transmitter.

Can you offer any tips etc?
As I understand it, setup has to be done correctly. If setup is off it will be really hard to learn.
