My project 450 flys! finally....


yea, shes built from spare parts....and yea there are a few missing here and there...so what. lol well it flys!

After a year of sitting on my shelf and deciding what to do with it (and one ebay sale gone bad) the beast takes to the air for the first time since being dismantled as a Trex SA. One thing is for sure, she is unique and she flys like a dream

Align gray metal head and tail
Align CF frame
JR Ds 285s and 3400G on the tail
Futaba GY401 gyro
Align 35 amp speedo and 430L brushless system
AR6100 Rx on a DX7 Tx

pics to follow:

I dont know if I'm supposed to advertise on here, but I cut them with my vinyl cutter. I'd be happy to cut some for anyone else for 6 dollars a pair.

Thanks for the comments, Its missing a few tid bits a couple of screws in the frame (which I installed today after a trip to the hobby shop yesterday. Its also missing the end caps on the skids which is just annoying to look at. Anyway its going on the shelf because my 600N came in yesterday

I have decided to make this my personal picture whoring thread so I am not contaminating all the other pic threads out there. My Trex 600N is still in build stages, but my buddy Tom has finished his. We went out to shoot a couple of pics of it on the 4th. Here they are:























I cant wait to get mine in the air!

the black one? I dont know, I was just going for that race car look with it. I have always liked how race cars looked with big factory logo's on them. Some of the newer imports have gone with a look to where the logo is so big it all doesnt fit on the car, and sometimes reversing them to where the logo is backwards on one side. I still considering doing that to one side of it. I already have reversed ones cut and ready to go.

In any case I think it turned out kinda cool looking as well. Thanks for the compliments
