T-Rex 550 DFC and 550L onboard

I should have blogged the build really, but I bought a 550E earlier in 2016 as I just love the colour scheme! Anyway, here she is with a Turnigy Action cam attached 🙂 

I decided to see what it’s like to be a tail boom on a T-Rex 550L, so I attached my GoPro Hero 4 to the heli on a fairly overcast day back in April 2016. As you can see from the end of the video I dropped the throttle too low on landing and the 550L had a little bounce. Unlike me, I have to say! Fortunately the only damage was a chipped tail blade – now replaced! The rest of the heli is all okay though, thankfully.
