On a heli of this size and power, I would not run a gear that had a missing tooth. Replace it.

-That is odd; a missing tooth and we can't say for sure how it happened. Well, one thing for sure: fix what you see and swap the gear out...

My Trex 600 had 1 tooth missing also but don't know why.... I've never had a blade strike or ANY misshap with that heli since I bought it used and converted it to flybarless. I had to auto rotate after the previous main gear stripped out during some tick tocks. The gear I put on came with the heli and may have already had a tooth missing and didn't notice it????

So tempted to buy this heli. I have the 450 3D, I just don't know about a flybar heli again, and how long parts are going to be around.

-I really like this model. As to parts availability, given HH record of keeping parts available for their other discontinued models, I'm thinking parts availability won't be an issue for a good long time...

Seems to be really hard to find this heli. Haven't been for sale for about the past 18 months.

Dude, you aren't helping

I have a line on a private deal for an RTF model. I don't need another xmitter as the 450 3D I have was RTF also, but it comes with a battery and a 6 cell battery charger so kind of sweetens the deal.

Anybody want a DX6i? I'll make you a deal on it.

I know everybody wants FBL as latest and greatest. That said a good fly-bared heli is not bad either. I am now flying a FBL V450D01 V2/ Plus T-Rex 450 se/ V2 shaft drive tail nd both a nice to fly. I find V450 a little easier to keep on target. The T-rex I think a little more nervous with but thats because of hype you read on forums. The response is different but nothing bad, just need more time on it. Flying that lousy Blade UH-1 Huey with stock TX and super sloppy head made me a little gun shy about Fly-bared c/p's. No way is T Rex like Huey.

I have been spoiled with FBL helis. Master c/p V120D02s/ Nano CP-X's bl/ Mcp-x's etc. I have no desire to become 3 D champ and many good Fly-bared heklis out there at good deals. Not so much on forum here as many are like ebay thinkers that they have some gold. V450D03 FBL m/g sevos goes for $250.00. Ya think I'd pay that for old onsolete heli ?
