trex 450 AH-6

RC aerodyne send me a wrong little bird. it's just a regular MD500 . as you can see there is no weapon plus there should me a hole on the side of the fuselage to insert the weapon boom.





this is what it supposed to be.

Not sure why you are posting this on here? Why aren't you letting RCA know and asking them to fix the issue? Posting it on here isn't going to get it fixed.

This is not the way to resolve an issue with a supplier or vendor.

You should call Cliff or email him directly and explain your problem to him , going about it this way is in very poor taste and just not the way we do things around here.

Make sure you get ahold of Ciff and not just someone who works there , he wiil correct the issue you have quickly.

It looks like a copter X head so if the blades came with it then they are the unweighted version as Ehirobo does not sell the weighted version.

It does look good but if there was one improvement I could suggest, get all four of the landing gear legs to touch the ground at the same time while it is at reast so that any rocking caused by the three legged gear cannot happen. It is the first time I have seen the flapping head at rest and it does look very real with the droop in the blades. Take care.

The weighted blades were designed to be run with no E-stab system. The weight in the tip of the blade provides stability to the helicopter. How do the plastic blades fly with the flapping head you have? I have the same combo for a 500 scale project I am working on and was unsure wether there would be to much flap in the blade with the combo of the two together.
