i was interested in how you tucked your electronics away. lol i have the same heli so i know how it looks :P

seems like you had alot of questions. questions are good if you have any about that heli you can go the the copterx 450 thread or pm me and ill see if i can answer it (if its mechanical i prolly can)

ive been flying/crashing off and on for like 2 yrs but my job really limits my flight time sometimes but imo im not a newbie anymore. so ask away... i got nothin better to do

looks good. i mounted my stuff a little differently but urs looks cleaner lol

if your cyclic servos arent metal gear i would get some soon. the FBL setup needs them

you should also use some foam tape for the rx and gyro.

Google them up. You can also see if the output gear is metal.

The thing sticking out of the servo should be metal, not the servo arm. If it says metal gear online, then it should either be one of the following:

True metal-geared servo. and has only metal gears inside.
or
They cheaped out and have a nylon/plastic gear inside, while all the rest are metal.

nope.

as soon as you need them to save you they will fail.

i would trust them if you were just hovering and were good at it, other than that... no way

as soon as you hear that classic "chopper" sound that people love the gears will have too much stress and strip. so be careful.

They will be just somewhat mediocre. Get some metal gear ones. Much more robust and will help you in both the short and long run.

No but pilots for the big machines have checklists they use starting up and shutting down to help prevent accidents. With smartphone today, you could have a checklist for both start up and shut down procedures on your phone to make sure to take the proper steps.
