450 at what cost ?

Hmm just calculating my next build :

So far I have . ( This will be in USD ) and all prices shipped

450Kit $11.45
4000KV Motor $7.63
ESC $10.22
Gyro $10.18
Servos $8 (4)
Rotor Blades $3.67
$51.15 to expensive , gone over budget $1.15
Looks like one could do it for less than $100 with Tx ... (not buying another Tx)

Time to block Ebay .

I'm just starting another budget build myself, but went with the $21 CNC head/tail kit, metal gear servos, digital metal tail servo, HK401b, turnigy Rx, tower pro 40 esc, and turnigy comp 3650 motor. Its decidedly using upgraded components from a bottom of the barrel build, but its still under 100 bucks. These prices are ridiculously cheap. How can you not afford to build a second heli?

noew this looks nice http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3206774482...84.m1423.l2649


why would you need a 26g servo though, is that for the pitch adjustment ?

First plastic fantastic is here

Ok the first kit has arrived ..

This is the one from Leader $21.50 shipped ...

Came today , and just spent a bit of time assembling it and then with nothing on tv , spent about an hour thread locking the head and doing some mods to make it hopefully nice and functional ..

Hopefully have it in the air in short order , just need a gyro ..
Otherwise I have enough gear floating around to put it in the air ..

I did provide a link - Parts 4 Hobby on Ebay ( post 4 ), I troll it every day , and put in some what low bids to see if I can score ...

A 7ch Computer radio went for just a little over $40USD ( not to me ) the other day .

I have a generic 450 I use to train on. My storm and trex 500 gets the baby treatment, the cheap one gets the abuse!
