T Rex owners, necessary fixes

Well since I have just purchased another T Rex, I have been searching and compiling all the needed fixes and things to watch for. I wanted to share the necessary fixes you will need to do. I will say I am glad I waited on getting the new SE (superior edition) as they are working out a couple bugs.

The number one fix needed BEFORE YOU EVER FLY is to fix the swashplate. you will have to take the swash apart and fix a couple things. To save a lot of typing I will provide links. Funny as I remember having to fix the old swash the same way last year and it seems it is still the case. This applies to the aluminum swash, the plastic and aluminum swash, and the all plastic swash. Remember to do the large bearing as well as the inner part shown in pics

Same deal goes for the new SE aluminum tail blade setup. if you have an older one or fairly recent, you might risk the screws stripping out and tossing the assembly. they are now replacing the screws with hardened ones, but I am going to stick with the stock setup and keep my headspeed under 2500 and be safe until it's all worked out. the duzi or microheli setups seem to be better in regards to the tails but they are also much more expensive.
