Align's 380 class T-Rex 470L

It looks like Align is up to it again, and this time they are hitting the market in a popular size. The new 470L will be the newest release from the legendary company. Not a lot of information is available yet on this new bird, but from the popular sizes out there, it seems to be in the 380 class and will run the corresponding blades to match.

Today Align released some sneak peak photos on the new bird and it looks like the rotor head is in a new stage of development and some other upgrades are shown to accommodate for the larger size from the 450L.

For more information when it's released click here.

Might be really difficult and unsatisfactory from an inertia point of view......but any chance of having a design where you can mount a tail servo right at the tail, possibly as a result it could be smaller and lighter......Im not a fan of fiddling with that part of the build and seems like thats where 99% of my flight issues come from....I guess then a cable would have to trail the boom...but wonder if it could be done.

Align trex store has them in stock now! I think I might actually wait for the LP version though. I'm a crappy pilot so the cheaper plastic parts might be better for me.

Hello guys,
Is there any picture of a 470L next to a Trex 450?
Thanks.

Seems like the skids are a direct replacement for the 450 Pro.

Hi Guys,

Watch out for the strap tensioning mechanism in your T-Rex 470L.
I have broken it and it is not possible to buy it in Align store

Please find below my conversation with Align

Honestly, your reseller should be obligated to provide those parts as warranty replacements. Where did you buy your kit from?
