The micro beast will work with analogs no problem. My 450 has hs65 servos and it works perfect.

Re: Trex 450 clone advise

can these fbl controllers be mounted in the front of the fuselage?

the reason im asking is because im noticing that there isnt alot of room by the head/rotor but for some odd reason there tends to be tones up front in the nose and under neith as well.
ok I can understand battery placement is a good thing for balance and CG, but if you have the room then why not spread the weight out instead of cramming everything underneith the frame rails.
if theres too much weight forward, then add some weight to the back to compensate.

arent these things all about balance?

Re: Trex 450 clone advise

That's too bad about the servos. Like someone else suggested, go with the BeastX then. I haven't seen anything good posted about the CX fbl controller yet in the forum, but that is only an observation. I can't say anything for or against it as I have no first hand experience.

I can tell you, the BeastX is a decent unit for the money and you can trust it. There's plenty of support for it considering it's popularity. There is next to no support for the CX.

Re: Trex 450 clone advise

I thought I would answer your PM here, just so everyone can see it. Yes I have the CopterX system and gave it a good try. One time it would initiate, the next 20 times it would not. I took it out of the heli couple times, ran through the manual and the info on the net and still it would most times not initiate.

Now for me, hey wanted to try it, did, and now it sets on the shelf, but I have one SK720 another Mini V-Bar and a uRondo system comming from Jeff at These units are easy to program and there is lots of help when and if needed.

Now my recommendation for you, since you are just starting out, to get a system that is proven. It may cost a little more but worth it just for the help you can get.

Is the CopterX system bad, I don't think so, there are many who I am sure are quite happy with it. Just either I am not smart enough, or it is a bad unit, or the moon was not in the right phase. The CopterX, Tarot and one other that I forget the name of are the exact same unit, just different packing.

Hope this helps.

Re: Trex 450 clone advise

That controller don't sound right at all!
I guess I will have to get the old rusty wallet out and go with the beastX system.
It's like everybody says...
At least it's a proven system!!!

Thanks a bunch everyone for alllll the help
