About Me

Align T-Rex 450 V2



Pilot Tom Zadar

I am Tom Z and CX2Pilot on the following websites: Rcgroups.com, Helifreak.com, Rcuniverse.com, Runryder.com, Deviationtx.com, YouTube.com

I build, repair, modify, and fly RC Helicopters and Quadcopters. I do product reviews for RC Helicopters, Quadopters, Transmitters, Receivers, Motors, Batteries, aftermarket parts, and ESC’s.
Some things I test for are flight indoors and outdoors, crash durability, performance, headspeed, thrust, flight time with different batteries and different motors/pinions and ESC’s.

I specialize in making Transmitter Setup Guides for Helicopters and Quadcopters (Multirotor).

I started doing reviews on Rcgroups in 2009. My first review was for the Walkera CB100.
In 2010 I started making transmitter setup guides which was made a sticky.
I would like to thank Darryl Fujihara (dkfuji) for all of his help who spent countless hours helping me out over the phone. He helped me out with micro helicopter setup, transmitter setup, and many other things.




I spelled “RC” with Walkera 4G6 Canopies.
