This is currently set at 450 V3. You may need to change it if you have the V2

I have the tail box on my 450 sev2. Works like a champ.

Outrage Fusion 50 Tail slider



They are cloning everything!
A bunch of companies use that slider design including Eflight, Thunder Tiger and MSH. About time somone made one for Align helicopters.

It would be interesting to know who came up with it first. I have a Kyosho Caliber 5, which has a similar arrangement, except that the arm on the tail crank isn't offset, but instead passes thru a slot in the tail boom, between the two sides of the tail belt. On the Caliber, the tail works great and has stayed very slop-free.

I landed a little hard on my 450 Pro and stripped the TT gear. I was wondering if I could take the whole tail setup from my V2 belt and use it to convert my Pro. Will it fit? I'm not liking TT at all.

EXI makes a belt version for the 450 pro. I use the TT for my scale projects . So much easier to slide the shaft into the tail than taking the whole tail apart for the belt.
And their out of stock http://www.xheli.com/exi-18003a.html

If your careful with your landings and also the surface your landing on then sticking with the TT i think it the better option. They are much easier to service and swap out the gears then the belt tail unit.

If you have a tail strike on landing on either then something is going to give, be it the tt gears or a bent tailshaft on the belt or worn belt gear from the belt slipping etc.

The two things that win me over with TT, is not having to worry about the belt, belt tightness, belt slipping and wearing belts etc... and also the ease of tt gear replacements in the tail.

That EXI belt tail unit looks like junk. Even looks worse than a hobbyking tail case. It's even got phillips head screws holding the tail case together.

which tarrot 450

Hi guys.
Which Tarrot 450 to buy?? so many models. Are some of the cheapies not the usual Tarot quality?? Some seem to cheap to be true.

Belt tail preferred, but that only seems to be a option the the cheaper/budget Tarrots
http://www.oomodel.com/tarot-450-pro...s-p-61751.html
http://www.oomodel.com/tarot-450-pro...e-p-61253.html

http://www.oomodel.com/tarot-450-pro...n-p-60788.html

My current 450 (Dragonsky) just isnt reliable(yet) . It's hard enough to find flying time, what with all the summer wind in NZ & I seem to get 5minutes in before I get another issue.
So It might just be better to start again with something reliable.
I do have a HK450 pro waiting to be built, but I really dont have time for the long process of sorting out issues on another cheap clone.

I'm still very much in the beginner stage :hovering
I also have a new Tarot DFC head waiting to go into my next heli
Cheers

The thing is it wasn't even that bad a landing. Just slightly hard. I've landed worse before on my v2 belt and even crashed numerous times even on concrete and never had to replace any part of the tail assembly.
It might be that the HK plastic gears might be cheaper quality than Align. Still debating...

Two of the heli's you have listed are the same, I would consider a flybarless, carbon framed, belt driven sport or pro heli if you can find it, keep it cheap while you are learning, hence the sport and belt drive recommendation. As long as you have a carbon fiber frame you won't be bending frame sets. you can run a tarot or alzrc flybarless controller, again, keeping costs down while learning.
