Trex 550 DFC Vbar KDE Helioption I2RC upgrades BNF

I am getting out of the hobby to spend more time with my son so I am listing my favorite helicopter. Of all of the helicopters I have owned, this is by far my favorite(and I have owned MANY).

This helicopter was not purchased as a kit. I built this heli piece by piece. This is a very rigid helicopter because of all of the frame upgrades that stiffen it up.

Heli has about 40 flights on it with 1 crash. All shafts, bearings and gears were replaced after the crash as well as the frame sides.

550mm Outrage carbon flybar blades
95mm Align carbon tail blades

Here is a list of the electronics:

MKS DS1210 on cyclic
Align DS650 on rudder
Align 600MX 1220kv motor
Hobbywing Platinum 100 ESC
Western Robotics Hercules BEC High Current
Mikado Vbar blueline fullsize 5.2 Pro
Hobbywing RPM sensor
2 Spektrum DSM2 satellite remote receivers
Ebay bluetooth module for Vbar


Helicopter has $499 worth of upgrades not including shipping. I know I am not going to get this back out of it when selling it but this will show why the asking price is what it is.

Here is a list of the upgrades:

Align DFC head upgrade $70
KDE Direct Performance tail control $78
KDE Direct Battery mount $42
KDE Direct Gyro mount upgrade $24
Align Mod 0.8 tail drive gear assembly $15
Align metal anti-rotation bracket $17
Align metal tail servo mount $15
Helioption main shaft block with thrust bearings $33
Helioption canopy clip $25
Helioption quick change canopy mounts $19
Helioption front frame mounting block $11
Helioption middle frame mounting block $12
Helioption rear frame mounting block $13
i2RC T556BM TREX 550E/600E High Performance CNC Boom Mount $125

I am also including several Pinion gears of different ratios, 2 new main gears, 1 new regular auto-rotation gear(not mod 0.8), DFC head parts(links, end links and bolts), swashplate leveler, head button, 2 new bevel main gears(not pictured) and 1 new bevel 18T pinion gear.

I am also including other misc. fasteners and hardware not pictured.

$1000 shipped Insured Continental US
