I also change my cyclic servos for this one (MG9025 Digital), as I got nice experience with analog MG90S on my V400D02:

fast enough 0.09 sec, 2.5kg torque , stable, for 6.99 US$ .




I also order the RCX07-006 as spare for my tail locking servo will update you later on.

Anybody else having experience so far with RCX parts on V450?Enjoy!
What about replacment ESC?

450 canopies?

Want to replace my v450d01 canopy with a cheap 450 size canopy. Are they long enough, I can drill holes.

Someone posted info on using 450 canopies about a month ago. You have to move the canopy posts forward in order to use them.

[QUOTE=IntegrityHndywrk;22889944]Hey any of you guys flying the "NEW" v450 can you tell me more about the new dip switches on the new RX? They don't run off the 6 axis system right? Pretty sure not. But just thought i would ask since it came up elsewhere.

I'm interested in this too.
I would like to buy one of the new RX's to experiment with.

It looks like the new RX's don't have gyro reversing switches. Is there some other way to reverse the gyros when you use different servo's?
Is the gyro setup done in the TX like the old 2702, or is it done internally in the RX?
Can you set up AIL, and ELE, RUD, travel limits on the new RX?

I've been using the 2702 RX's on 2 of my Trex's for several months with great success. No problems.

I've found the chepest original one here 2.51 US$ (HM-V450D01-Z-03)
I thought it was a mistake because they still selling the old model for 7.51 US$ (HM-V450D01-Z-11).
At this price I ordered few,couldn't see any differences with the old one, sorry now it's out of stock...

No idea, still using the original one, but don't like it, it's getting way to hot, I'm wondering if the Turnigy Plush 40A will do the job better?

New Green color canopy from their updated V450d01 with 6-axis Model. I'm going to get one of these. Sick of the red color stock ones.

Those canopies will not be restocked at that price. I'm positive.

ANY ESC is likely better than the stock WK ESC.

Ewwwww. This one actually makes the "new" V120d02S canopy look EXCELLENT in comparison. I didn't like that one at first either.

OMG, i didn't even notice it does not have gyro reverse switches anymore!!! This makes this RX worthless for anything but Walkera Servos. Isn't it just typical of walkera, since NO ONE keeps the stock WK servos, they remove ANY option of using Align or other servos any longer. I'm just so tired of this behavior.

I suppose you could invert or rotate your tail servo/rx depending on how the gyros need to be changed. But what bastards WK are for that.

Hi, I did that change to my bird. I really prefer the fiberglass ones to the plastic stock one. It was only $6 as well. Yes, just move the rear canopy support posts forward and swap with the scews. You need to move them forward to the screw positions 3 screw holes further forward. Its obvious which ones once you do it. I find it much faster and easier to take on and off when changing batteries and even though I crash lots, I havn't cracked a fiber canopy yet. I have 4 thrashed stock canopies before I swapped over. I think it actually takes much of the hit when I come in nose first!

I think you need 1 red for when it's sitting around and then switch to the green for flying.... or just paint your own!

I keep one pristine canopy for the V450 desk display and one raggedy canopy to fly. That new style canopy would look great on my V450 for a long time.
