Trex build videos / Tutorials - FREE

OK I got kicked out of Runryder for STUPID reasons (my videos) so I had to move all my build videos to another place where the big Censor Runryder Mark wont be able to delete them! The new location is:

I have my own forum there and the complete list of videos (below) is now there along with a bunch more like a complete build set for the HDX 450!

You can also find them at and go into my page there.

I will be adding many more in the future like the Trex600 and Hirobo Lepton, and even the RotorWorkz G4 frames!

You will have to make an account ot download them.... sorry about that but that is the way of the internet....

Anyway, sorry for the inconvenience of these being down for so long! Wasnt my fault..... Someone felt they could go ahead a BURN the library for monetary reasons.

Bob, you 'da man!! I've been avidly following your posts over on RR. Timing couldn't have been better, either: I'm just getting ready to "graduate" from my BCP by buying a "real" radio and a TREX SE, and the vids you've posted have made what had been a somewhat intimidating prospect (i.e., the arcane world of radio & heli set-up) into something I'm now "getting" and even really looking forward to. To say nothing of the fact you've greatly increased the chances I'll actually have a properly set-up bird when the time comes for that first hold-my-breath white-knuckle hover! You've made a huge contribution to the Rex community, thanks a bazillion for the tremendous effort you've put into this.

I don't have a Trex but an MX400/TREX hybrid, but I can also use these videos as well - so kudos to you, Bob.

The throttle/pitch curve tutorial really helped to understand how to setup my radio, cudo's. Thanks for your contribution.
