Newbie
« on: January 18, 2014, 12:04:30 AM »
Hi guys my names Rey I'm new to this hobby especially 1/5 scale and would like to know how easy is binding and running in a losi 5ive T truck? I've just ordered a white one from model flight and also a Spectrum DX4R Pro. People that owned one is it easy to maintain? Most of my rc that I have are rtr and electric but they never last long so I decided to buy a petrol one. My current rc are Hpi super 5sc flux, Traxxas emaxx brushless, traxass slash 4/4, Hpi Apache Sc, Hpi Blitz and Blade 350 QX.
I mainly bashed for fun but sometimes dont have the time as I work away.

Hi Rey welcome to the forum, by the don't forget to post some PICS. Binding is fairly straight forward and simple just follow what instructions you have and you will be good, I hope you plan on fitting a Killer Bee kill switch, it is your first priority.

Welcome to LSD Rey...

The Losi 5ive is very easy to maintain and a very tough truck, you will get a lot of enjoyment out if it... Have a look around in the Losi section, you will find heaps if info

Thanks guys. I'll try and read as much info as I can on the losi 5ive t. Can you buy the killer bee kill switch on any hobby store? I couldn't find it on eBay. Is this pretty straight forward to install? Also how do you post pics on here?
