The T-Rex 470L Electric Helicopter is a freshly designed new size for Align, featuring 380mm main blades which have become ever more popular within the helicopter community. Included within the kit is an excellent electronics package which will provide proven and reliable performance at an excellent price to performance ratio.

By moving to 380mm Main Blades, pilots will notice an improvement not only in performance for all aspects of flying, but additional stability due to large disk area in flight. Overall the larger helicopter will improve visibility over a standard 450 (325-360mm Main Blades) helicopter. By bumping up the power package to 6s 1800 and a matched 1800kV motor additional flight time can be added to the heli, or insane performance can be provided with higher headspeeds. The T-Rex 470L will be extremely versatile, and should be a staple in most pilots hangar. It can be flown in an average sized park for the sport flyer, or taken out to your local flying field to lay down excellent 3D performance.

 The 470LP Model utilizes mostly plastic components, which aid in lowering the weight even more compared to the "M" model.

  • 380mm Main Blades offer excellent stability and performance

Align T-REX 470LP Dominator Super Combo Helicopter Kit
The 470LP is 100% the best value in a 450/380mm helicopter by far. For around $350 plus batteries, you have a 380 class heli that will suit seasoned pilots as well as those moving up from BnF CP helicopters.

Pros
-Killer combo savings
-Cheap to crash
-Parts are everywhere
-Better than average hardware

Cons (nitpicking)
-ESC isn't fantastic but will get you going. Recommend a HW50 Platinum off the bat.
-74mm tails should be included in the box instead of the 69mm
-1800mah 6s packs aren't exacly cheap at $50+. You'll want the weight for balance so I wouldn't recommend going smaller to save cash.

If you're deciding between the 470LM and LP, I would recommend picking up the LP and putting that money in a couple extra 1800 packs or upgrading the microbeast to pro for the rescue. Or even better, selling the microbeast and picking up a ikon2 flybarless system.

I knocked off half a star each for the meh ESC and still packaging the old 69mm tails but I would buy this all over again in a heartbeat.

Align T-REX 470LP Dominator Super Combo Helicopter Kit
I recently purchased the trex 470lp Helicopter. I’ve flown it about 12 batteries where very impressed I normally fly a T. rex 500 aluminum carbon fiber but I wanted something to practice with that was cheap to fix. This helicopter is definitely a great helicopter the tail on mine is rocksolid I have everything that the kit came with in mine and I see no problems with anything. I did make a few adjustments in the perimeter menu but I’ve done nothing with the tale so far and my tail holds rocksolid the only time it doesn’t is once the battery starts to deplete then the tail doesn’t hold as perfect but that is expected as your power is going down. I Assume if you bought the plastic version the purpose of having it was to have a helicopter that is cheap to crash. Don’t upgrade it to metal parts just leave it the way it is there’s nothing wrong with it if you want to helicopter with metal parts just buy another helicopter. You also want to keep it belt driven because when you crash you don’t break. When you have a driveshaft you snap in a crash if the tail boom breaks you blow out all the gears and it cost about $50 in parts. If that happens with belt nothing usually happens at all except the tailboom breaks. And it is absolutely perfect for it because it does not fly like your typical Small helicopter just feels the same as my 500 for stability and is just as capable. The beastx control is one of the best Fly bar less units on the market I know other people like Others but I cannot find the reason why any are better than this thing has every type bail out rescue feature you could possibly want including teaching you you inverted flight and TickTock’s while having the artificial stabilizer turned on. And it’s also a six axis gyro which most are three makes it even more stable. . There are no other gyros out there that are this capable of all these functions the best part of it all is you do it right from your phone connection or you can do it right from Your radio. Once you understand The directions and everything is very easy to understand. And unlike other gyros the cost 3-400$ you can pick these up for about $100 on eBay I got mine for 115 and that included the pro version upgrade that is an excellent price for any Gyro especially this one. I hope my review helped some people looking into buying this helicopter thank you

Align T-REX 470LP Dominator Super Combo Helicopter Kit
Love the combo but DITCH THE ALIGN ESC (IF it's not made by HobbyWing!)! I run the governor and their governor is JUNK. Dont talk to Gale Align of Enterprise Hobby either because he's WORTHLESS as far as tech support is concerned. All he talked about was the "big boys" Alan Szabo and others that didnt run the governor and neither should I! Otherwise, the motor, BeastX, servos etc work wonderful! The heli is REALLY powerful and is a blast to fly!

Fast shipping and so far so good. Everything is there and in perfect condition. The kit is assembled and looking good. Just weighting to get my transmitter and battery-charger.
This is my first build and I think it's the only way to do it, if you can afford it. Because all the electronics are perfectly matched and the instructions are very good and there is lots of help online. The only hard part I can see is the microbeast stuff. Will do an update when I get that done.

Align T-REX 470LP Dominator Super Combo Helicopter Kit
I have had the align tree 150 and decided to move up to a bigger heli, Kit was super fun and easy to build, My micro beast may have ended up being a faulty gyro so I sent it back and they are dealing with sending me a new FBL. The best customer service for any company and I will be buying from hobby town again.

Align T-REX 470LP Dominator Super Combo Helicopter Kit
Decent Kit & fun build for the most part. The Microbeast FB unit was a tad tricky for me to program at first but the good thing with the Microbeast is that you do not need a computer to set it up and get flying. Which the little instruction cards didn’t need a magnifying glass to read! Would be nice if they printed complete setup instructions for the Microbeast and provided it with the kit. Just take your time, go online to Microbeasts website and read the instructions from front to back! If you take your time and know what you’re doing, you’ll have an amazing flying helicopter.

Align T-REX 470LP Dominator Super Combo Helicopter Kit
This kit had a bad esc AND flybarless unit. Just had the hobbyshop look at it all. NEVER buying Align crap again. Waste of precious time and money.

Align T-REX 470LP Dominator Super Combo Helicopter Kit
Kit instructions were a tad off. Bad diagrams, blurry and hard to read. Some of the electronics were bad. Probably never going to buy Align again.

Align T-REX 470LP Dominator Super Combo Helicopter Kit
Not overly thrilled with this kit. A bunch of mismarked parts bags that never have the correct parts in them. This kit is actually missing some mounting screws which pissed me off. Went through all the bags, notta! The technical writer (obviously not from this country) really had a difficult time translating the trex manual to English. Same thing for the Microbeast. The German technical writer really failed translating to English.The flybarless unit is really lacking instructions in general. Received firmware 5.1 and of course there is no instructions for that one online & never heard back from Microbeast tech support. I have no problem maintaining or wrenching on RC Heli’s but found this kit to be SUPER INCONVENIENT and really disappointing. Since you never hear back from the manufacturers, guess I’ll just toss this piece of crap in the garbage. Spent over $600 for all the gear to get this heli running and really was a waste of time. It is just taking up bench space.

Align T-REX 470LP Dominator Super Combo Helicopter Kit
This is my very first RC heli and so far it has been great. I have no complaints in general, but I would recommend swaping the servos since they will develop slope in the gears. Mechanically also have not had any problems. The plastic pieces are really good actually. I upgraded with the metal set kit but had problems for the tail assembly. The main head pieces and body fit nicely, but for the tail I had play and slope that would give tail wag when flying. I had to put back the plastic pieces to get a smooth flying.

Overall this is a great heli. I am very happy with it.

Align T-REX 470LP Dominator Super Combo Helicopter Kit
Cannot beat this kit for the price. The beastX alone is almost have the cost. I have 2 of these helis and they are great to use for practice; cheap parts that are available everywhere and tons of power on 6S. This plastic version is extremely light as well. Go with a 1800mah 6S for the perfect CG.
