Trex 450 SE and general build videos are here
 
It was suggested by a excellent contributor GimbalFan that I order my videos in a order that should be follow by a new person (n00b) with a new Trex. I liked the suggestion and now the videos are in order as they should be viewed.

NEW VIDEOS added 8/28/2007!
My old beater SE got pretty totaled at IRCHA night flying (I wont explain but it wasnt me) and I had to do a rebuild. Thus I decided to do a video on things that I had not done on the SE before. That is a complete frame build (All 4 frame sides were broken in the crash) and HS65MG servo install. So with that here ya go:

NEW VIDEO -> Trex SE frame build (40 Megs)

NEW VIDEO -> Installing HS65MG servos in an SE (50 Megs)



Here are the other Trex 450 videos:

General Maintenance Ad-hoc Video (20 Megs)

Installing the NEW SE tail hub (20 Megs)

Modifying the new SE tail hub to make it much better (10 Megs)

Thread Lock 101 (15 Megs)

Installing HS56 Servos in a Trex SE (38 Megs)

Ball Links 101 (20 Megs)

Soldering Bullet (Motor) Connectors 101 (50 Megs)

Soldering Deans Connectors 101 (30 Megs)

Trex Electronics placement and overview (28 Megs)

CCPM Setup Part 1 (58 Megs)

CCPM Setup Part 2 (58 Megs)

Pitch and Throttle Curves 101 (58 Megs)

401 gyro setup (48 Megs)

Align ESC setup (30 Megs)

Blade Balancing (30 Megs)

Canopy Trimming 101 (28 Megs)

Servo Repair 101 (30 Megs)

Replacing the Align Auto-rotation Clutch (20 Megs)

Blade Tracking 101 (35 Megs)

Programming the Futaba 9Z for a heli (78 Megs)


Enjoy!

It's in process but I just got a FTP error so the Admins will need to delete the current upload so I can redo it. Should be up today!

Eric, it should be working now.... Will had to do a little fix on the server for me so he had it down for a few minutes.

Bob

ericnord 05-12-2006 06:04 PM

Roger, like the splash screen! I really want to get this thing to move this weekend.

Thanks,

Finless 05-12-2006 07:28 PM

OK, CCPM part 2 and installing servos is up!

Bob

Finless 05-12-2006 09:31 PM

Slowly but surely they are going up!
Looks like it will take longer than I thought to do them all!

Bob

stpeteheli 05-12-2006 09:37 PM

Thanks Bob! Your videos will really help this hobby. I just wish they were out when I started about a year ago! I'm building a Swift now, moving up from the ole Trex. I never had a GY401 and digital servo on the rex but I do now and would appreciate it if you could get that lesson on setup posted.

Thanks again! :noteworthy

Funny you should ask! It's up right now :D

Throttle and Pitch curves will be next!

Bob

Finless 05-12-2006 10:32 PM

Just put up the Pitch and Throttle Curves 101 video!
I know many liked that one so it was high on the list to get done.

Bob

Wow!

Bob is hard at work again. These vids are comming back much faster than I expected. Thanks for all of your efforts. It is great to have a site that we can count on.

Thanks for the new home! Looks like the old one burnt to the ground. :D Well we can always hope :wink: .

Finless 05-13-2006 12:29 AM

I just posted a bunch more of my vids.... Man what a process to have to recompress them all over again!

Slowly but shurely they will get here!

Bob

Dont worry if you cant find the pinion one.

Finless 05-13-2006 04:05 AM

No worries... I have thew PINION one :D

Bob

gwk 05-13-2006 12:55 PM

Hi Finless,

The pinion vid got a lot of ridicule, but I think the it was a valuable learning tool. I learned some things from it! I'm still a n00b though....for us n00b's it's great!

oldeflyer 05-14-2006 11:22 AM

Bob,
i am building a Swift (first CP) and your cyclic and curve vids are extemely helpful.
i spent weeks asking questions on the RCG and getting confused :arggg: then trying this and that, finally getting something to work. great bunch of people over there, but these videos have sooo much information presented in an easy to understand fashion, it is GREAT.
thank you for taking the time to redo them. :)
