If your ESC has a 3+Amp BEC, there's really no need (or space) for an external BEC in a 450.

Plenty of space. And I prefer 6v output. By the way, nice digi servos can easily pull 3 amps. 4 hs5085mg servos pull more than I would trust with a 3a BEC

I finally got my batteries today and was able to power everything up and finish putting it together only to have that servo go bad. Bummer!

This is what I installed in it:

Tarot 450FL FBL rotor head
Tarot ZYX-S gyro
Tarot 3800kv motor w/ 14T pinion gear
KST DS115MG tail servo
Solar D654 cyclic servo's
Hobbywing Flyfun 40A ESC
Walkera RX802 receiver
Walkera Devo 8S transmitter
The kit came with wooden blades so I'll use those for now and get some CF's later.

Looks alot different than the picture on the web site. I have changed a few things on it. Here are some older pics from a month or so ago.

Also, I forgot to add that My ZYX-s has a solid red light. I thought solid red was for heading hold mode? Currently it is acting as a 3 axis gyro and corrects for all levels of input.

It also corrects in the right direction, yet for some reason my TX is switch, elevator controlling collective and collective is controlling pitch?!


Edit. So much for that...

Can you only plug this thing in one time before having to restart the heli? I was messing around on johns setup, got everything level, but still my channels were swapped. Then I unplugged it to test some things, plugged it back in and it just sits there. Now it doesnt receive any signal and is acting like it wont bind to my TX. When it turns on the Gyro just sits there with all three lights on, no input from anything at all...

Edit #2. Now I Tried binding without anything hooked up (besides ESC and bind plug) and the rx wont bind.... I think the RX fried... Hopefully Gyro is still okay, but I wont know until I get a new rx.

Now, Any ideas about the swapped channels? Other than them being swapped everything is good to go! its almost like mode 1 programming.... on a Mode 2 tx. so weird!

Sounds good!

as mentioned I am now waiting on a new RX but will try it asap when I get one in hand. Until then, If that reverses the elevator servo then will my Collective be all messed up like it was eariler? servos going every which way? If so then do I go reverse it in my tx?
