I find that the bearing packs HK sells are better than the ones that come in the kits. I've been using them for bearings that generally need to be replaced after every crash e.g. blade grip bearings.

Perhaps going cheapest on the planet potentiometers was not the best idea. $4 for 10pc or so. Will try them anyway

What’s up
Well I was just wondering through an old neighborhood see you are into the 450 now.
I had one of those once
It was better than what they push off on us with the RTF micros.
If I did not have a DX6i this looks real interesting.

However I just got my first Quadcopter V939 that is compatible with this one.

Don’t have a 9x or Flysky yet
I know what you’re saying
Just using the stock TX, it works for now, and starting to get use to it.
May sell off my DX6i and go with the 9X its compatible with more brands, more bells and whistles RX are cheaper, weeding out the big stuff going mini and micro. Less time demanding, cheaper, take up less space, fly in smaller areas, can share with others without taking off someone’s head.
May put one of my 450 on e-bay this week, I could see myself getting hooked on FPV on a bigger Qaud.

You guys really need to start using FrSky. They are awesome. I've never had a single issue. Throw away that other junk, especially the Spektrum stuff.

Love it! That first picture, that's exactly like the Tarot tail gearbox I was talking about. Where can I get that pitch slider?

which 450 do you have? 450 sport / v3? Or 450 SE / V2

This is currently set at 450 V3. You may need to change it if you have the V2

I've been flying for 4 years and have 30 aircraft and I have never had a single issue with Spektrum. Does this mean everyone should throw away their FrSky stuff, or all other brands?

I've seen Hitek, Futaba, FrSky, and yes, Spektrum all lose radio contact at my field.
