450 Build Shopping List
So I'm pretty much ready to order my 450 build. Just thought I get a few opinions on my parts list.
Also how long does it usually take to receive items from HobbyKing that are backordered?
Kit Option #1 EXI 450 SE
Kit Option #2 HK 450 CCPM
Tail Servo Metal Gear
Cyclic Servos Metal Gear
Pinion Kit 13T
Can anyone also suggest a battery and charger?
I wouldn't get that gyro. It's 4 year old technology.
For a little less (around $20 shipped) I'd get a gy520 (aka fmt-40) on eBay.
For a charger:
As for the motor I'd recommend:
If you search these forums for turnigy 2215 I don't think you'll find much, if anything, negative said about it.
It's a budget battery but gets the job done.
Don't forget xt60 connectors for battery to ESC. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=9572
bullet connectors for motor to esc
It varies, of course, but BK items take around 2 weeks .
HK in general is slow to ship in my experience even if items are in stock. My last two orders took a week to ship and everything was in stock. But...gotta love the prices.
+1 on the Cx gyro. At least get the PC programming cable with that to tune the settings.
The cheap gy520 is one of the better simple gyros but it still yaws in high pitch moves.
I prefer this motor over the 2215 : http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=8137
Same flight times but wont bug down under load. Bullet connectors and pinions are included so its actually not that more expensive.
