XL Power Protos 480 Build


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello everyone,

Just recieved my XL Power Protos 480 courtesy of www.farfast.ca and am looking forward to getting it together. I know the original protos 500 was a really good heli so looking forward to see how this performs.

Set up will consist of:

Unboxing the Protos 480.

XL Power DS512 cyclic mini servos
XL Power DS747 Tail servo
Hobbywing 60amp esc
Mikado Vbar neo
Rotortech 480mm blades
Battery TBD

Package seems well organized with bags nicely labeled.

Re: XL Power Protos 480 Build

Looks very nice kit.

I have two of the original MSH Protos helis. Both CF, factory stretch to 470mm main blades.

They fly beautifully. Graceful and fast. Straining at the leash.

I will be very interested in how you get along building and flying the XL Power reincarnation.

Cheers
Tim
