The Align T-Rex 500X is a refreshing revision of the ever popular 500 class helicopter! Featuring many new updates such as the FL Rotor Head System, larger 470mm main blades, tail rotor belt driven system, & sliding battery tray system. All of the updates both physically and electronically are built to deliver one of the best 500 class flight experiences to date! Typically smaller helicopters are not as stable, and not as powerful as their larger class brothers. The 500X changes this concept drastically and is as stable as it's larger brothers.
