I'm aware this the align area, but there is no clone area, if an admin would like to create one and move the thread then I feel that is a good idea.
I'm going to try and build a super budget HK450, my reason for this is as a "disposable" trainer. I know some of you dislike a clone and this thread is not about that. I want to use it to train myself to fly my raptor E620 better. I use phoenix, it is ok, but actual stick time is better. I use my MCPX for a step towards the E620, but they are a world apart and I hope the HK450 will assist in bridging the void.
My plan is to order the kit from the German warehouse and avoid taxes for things from outside EU, the innards I will order from the far eastern warehouse. Weight really pumps up the shipping from far east so the Lipo is undecided as yet, I'll check which works out cheaper.
So far my spec looks like this, partly my own then edited when I saw Delarado's spec in another thread.
I will probably order 2 or 3 kits, and a few spare parts, but initial pricing is for 1 build.
Ant comments and tips are very welcome on the spec. P+P is £9.70 for 1 heli and £9.29 so far for the parts
