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 "T" in the 470LT model describes the model as including a Torque Tube tail system. Depending on pilot preference, both Belt and Torque Tube models are available.

This is a very beautiful machine and at the same time a powerfull beast. This is heli that take you to an other level. I never saw a unique heli of these new size that works so extremely fast,super responsive and so very stable.
1. The manual doesn't fit with the labeled bags, so expect to investigate what parts do you need for every step
2. The screws are a joke.
3. Manual and Microbeast is quite difficult to understand for someone who has not experience.
Otherwise , the Helicopter is nice , cheap and quality is ok for the price range. But I was expecting something else. Not sure if I will continue with it.
