Hey all and welcome to the Forums Evo.
Ok my advice would be - Dont bother with the HK450 barebones, Get yourself a V2. the difference in price is definitely worth it (especially as you are going to be putting so much effort into it).
Ok for swash servo's, there is no point getting the MG90 servo's when you can get the "Hobbyking Digital Servo
" for the same price! For the Motor go with the "Turnigy Typhoon
" motor. And finally for the Gyro, the G401B
is a gyro allot of people will swear by. Combine it with a DS919MG Servo
and you should be good to go. All the servo's are digital and metal geared. The motor is a great motor (works very well in my 450, even for hard aerobatics and mild 3D). Im also using some of their DIRT cheap 2200mah 20C packs and a Supersimple 40A esc. Its a great set up!
All the best and good luck,
(P.S - Click the item names)
P.P.S - If you are after a Radio and you are starting out - Go for a Turnigy 9X
I have been using mine (one of the very early and original V1's) and for helicopters its flawless! Great radio and i would have even paid double the price for it. Look into the Lithium battery mod if you do get one too...
