MHRC: it's ok i'm still continuing the 250 fbl build.

going back to it now.
Good man - are you putting XT60s on the 250 they're a bit big aren't they ? I just use the standard connectors.

BTW the YEP 45 is a big unit - too big for the 250

Mike the 250 will just be for flips and rolls. Everything is all an over kill for flips and rolls. The wiring is really daunting though. i'm trying to think how to fit them all in! As for the ESC, i'm using align stock

I know tell me about it! walkera 2801 it's old but it works for my other helis. I'm thinking the motor is too big. I might have to buy the 250MX motor for space factor. Either that or i just try to put all the wires outside, and it's going to be massively ugly

DrM: I know you haven't kept up with the 250 thread, but as i was saying there, retirement is just around the corner, and I get shaky thumbs now. It's just part of growing old. I do crack piros, crack tic tocs, just all crack! lol

so having said that I just do flips and rolls now days.

I am also using XT60 for my 250. As you said, it is bigger than JST, but still fit behind the canopy.

The only drawback is that it is hard to unplug - requires strong fingers and more forces.

my point was that you won't see if the wires are inside or outside the frame in flight, so it might not be worth your troubles to fret over neat wiring. And I think this is particularly true if all you fly are flips and rolls 3 mistakes high.

I'm not too far behind you, so that's why I'm looking to a 500 or 550 to further my skills. The reading glasses thing is the one that annoys me most!

I elected not to do the reading glasses thing, I opted for varifocal lenses instead. That was fun for the first few days . Flying was out of the question, driving and riding the bike was interesting to say the least .

The worst thing is not having any reading glasses to hand, and having to work on the heli - you end up having to do it by Braille! I sometimes wonder if long-sight is nature's way of making your partner look younger when you're close up....

Varifocal or bifocal glasses is not fun at all. I just take it off when working on 250 heli or my Hirobo Quark.

Who said that short sight people don't need reading glass, big lie !!!

I've stuck with the JST connector on my 250, as most of the 850mah batteries come with them pre fitted. I upgraded my Gaui X2 to XT60, as most of the 1000mah batteries come with the XT60 or some other plug.

If you think the XT60 is hard to pull apart, wait until you try the XT90. But a trick I use, which makes a big difference is to put a bit of silcone or grease on the battery plug, around the outside (not the pins). You'll find they are much easier to pull apart (but still wont fall out) and you wont end up damaging the wires on you ESC.
