For Sale

T-Rex 500, Hacker, 4 packs, Extras, $500 pickup in Iowa


T-Rex 500 CF. Two canopies, stock motor and ESC, 3 x Hitec HS-5245MG swash servos, Futaba 401 gyro and 9257 tail servo. Helicopter is in very good to excellent condition. I picked it up from another gentleman last Summer and have flown it five or six times just for setup and then some forward flight and stall turns. Flies great, needs nothing that I'm aware of. Comes with some new parts and a few spares, please see photos. I'm going to include a brand new Hacker A40-10s 8-pole heli motor with the helicopter. It's 1600kv which is the same as the stock Align motor. I was going to install it myself if I kept the helicopter.

I also have four batteries for it: Outrage XP25 6s 3000 25C Lipos. I flew two of them with no problems but one got slightly soft on the outsides. I haven't flown the other two. I got them from a reputable seller and I'm including them for free so there's no warranty. Packs are in storage mode (3.85v per cell) using a Cellpro 10s charger.

Helicopter hasn't been flown since October. I'm selling this and keeping my Logo 10 as it suits my flying style better.

Everything for $500 cash local pickup. This IS the deal of the year if you are looking for a helicopter that looks good and flies well. If it's a nice day I'll fly it for you before you buy it.

I'll also offer it RTF with a Futaba 7cap 2.4 Ghz. transmitter and matching 7 channel receiver for an extra $200. Both were purchased new from Todds last Summer and have only been used to setup and fly this helicopter.

I will consider shipping if it doesn't sell locally. I weighed the double boxes and components and shipping with insurance was $38 before the rate increase.

The battery packs. One has black tape but it seems to be holding on the label and velcro.

Southwest, near Creston. Sometimes I travel to Osceola, Des Moines, Pella, Knoxville, Fort Dodge. Even Omaha, Nebraska on occasion.

I'm trying to make this a really attractive deal for someone local, or even in Iowa. I want to promote the hobby. We don't have a club, even the closest hobby shop is 90 miles away. If someone is looking for a nice helicopter that is already setup and trimmed-out, here ya go.

You don't have to live "locally" for local pickup.
