For Sale

T-Rex 500, Futaba 2.4 Radio, Extras, Ready To Fly, Local Pickup in Iowa

Offering for sale my T-Rex 500. Carbon frames, stock motor and ESC, Hitec 5245 MG servos on the swashplate, Futaba 9257 on the tail, GY-401 Gyro, Outrage 6s 3000 25C Lipo. I've flown this about 6 times. I'm a sport/scale flyer and it flies great, no issues at all. I have the timer set for 7 minutes and my flying uses < 80%. The main blades have a few minor imperfections but nothing serious.

The transmitter is a Futaba 7cap 2.4 with matching R617FS receiver. This radio set was purchased just this Summer from Todds Models and has been used only to setup and fly this helicopter. It has less than 5 hours time on it.

This helicopter is absolutely ready to fly as is, I know of nothing that it needs. The Tx and gyro are programmed, just charge the flight battery and fly. It's setup for +10/-10 pitch and the motor has the 13T pinion installed. Oh, yeah, you get the quarter taped to the tail too (for balance with the larger packs).

I would like to sell this for a local pickup and together as a unit. For the helicopter, battery, extra parts, Tx and Rx asking $700 cash or Paypal. If you don't want the Tx and Rx, I'd like $525 for the Helicopter, battery, and parts.

To the local buyer of this helicopter I will also offer three more Outrage 6s 3000 25C batteries for $100, and a brand new Hacker A40-10s 8-pole heli motor (1600kv) for $75. Same kv as the stock motor.

I'm in Southwest Iowa near Creston. I'm three hours to Kansas City, two hours to Omaha or Des Moines. It's possible I could meet part way if we finalize a deal. All I ask is a small deposit before I pack things up and drive. If it's not windy, I can demo the setup in person.

If this doesn't sell locally, I'll certainly consider shipping it. Thanks for looking.

Battery and Motor Photos

Here's photos of all four packs. The original battery that came with the helicopter is on the bottom in the photo.

Also the NIB 1600kv Hacker. Aeromodel recommends this motor as a replacement for the T-Rex 500 "with no bogging".

Deal of the day

Helicopter, spare and new parts, all four battery packs, NIB Hacker replacement motor, all for $600 local pickup.

I've decided to keep the Futaba 2.4 Tx and Rx for my other helicopter. However, if someone wants the RTF package I'll let it go for an extra $200.

EDIT: 12-14-09 : Closing this thread. Going to hang on to it for now...

Re-Opened this thread

With no time to fly R/C, I'm offering this nice helicopter and low-time radio setup for sale at reduced prices.

I've opened the old thread because nothing has changed except the Hacker motor is no longer available.

Helicopter, all electronics including Rx and Tx , spare parts, No Batteries : $575 cash local pickup.

Above items without Tx and Rx or batteries: $400 .

Batteries have been stored at 3.85v since October 2009. They will be offered at no cost to the buyer of the helicopter but will be strictly AS IS - no warranty.
