New Align Trex 600e Pro

My new Align Trex 600e Pro, kittens and banana for scale.

I bought this newly built, never flown heli on eBay at a steal with a new Spektrum Dx7S. The heli is bind and fly with all Align parts, a Castle 80A HV ESC, a Spektrum AR8000 with satellite, Align GP790. It came with two new Fusion 6S 4000 mAh 40C LiPO batteries (might be a tight fit, haven't checked) with EC5 connectors (convenient as that's what I use),, and a new 2S 2200 mAh LiPO receiver pack with Traxxas connectors. I need to vet it, take the head and the tail apart especially, check the gyro and program my Dx8. This version uses a flybar, which I wanted, and I will need to make sure its mechanically set up.

A couple of years ago i bought an Align Trex 600efl (flybarless), and have been byung parts for it. I finally have all the parts and along with vetting the new 600e I will be building the 600efl. That will take a lot of time.
Meanwhile I am cleaning up and servicing my other helis and expanding my heli shop (picks to follow)!
I am definitely back! Spending my motorcycle money, but I am back!
