X400 Owners Sticky Thread

We don't have an organized sticky thread for X400 so far. So I am puting these links together and hoping that we can make this thead sticky so everybody can find X400 information easily in one place. So if anybody gets any good links for x400, please add to it. If you find any dead links below, please let me know.

Note: Some general infor such as ESC, Gyro, Motor, Radio and other electronics is discussed in Trex threads but the info should all be applicable for X400 as well, as it is the same line heli.

******* Check www.helitown.com. I have created a website to better organize threads and links for your convinience. It is always updated with new threads. Check it out.

Sharky47, I am sure it is not me. I have submitted a pic for the RC Heli Hangar but I don't think they will pick it. Also, I asked them to illustrate X400 in one of their future issues and I don't think they hear me either . What made you think it is me? Which issue and what page? I have all three issues.

Hi Steve, it is sooooooooo sad to see X400 is left behind on this forum . Anyway, we'll still be here regardless what talking about x400 and don't let that take your fun away.

I PM'ed Toshi to see if he can help make this thread sticky. I'll keep you all posted.

Eddie, I just got issue number 4 of RC Heli today and on page 105 in the RC Heli Hangar, there is a picture of your MX400 in flight! Looks like they did pick your photo after all. Congrats!

Golgi, thanks. I have not got my 4th issue yet. It is always late to get here in California. They did not have one for me last issue and I had to buy it as a back issue. So it is great news! I am glade they picked an X400 pic. Kudos to Steve (Swatson114) for helping me setting it up through this forum and to my wife for taking the nice pic.

OK, these are all the X400 links I could possibly find so far. If you find any repeated links, let me know. Feel free to add if you find any new good links.

Normally, you can order a back issue here http://www.rchelimag.com/pages/store.php but I have not seen the 4th issue here yet. They don't charge for shipping and it only takes a few days. I don't think that they sell it at barnes and noble.
