it's a cpoy... but it looks new to me.

All the head parts are black. Maybe they are using a better plasitc?? Also... I see a speed 400 brushed motor mounted in it.

Either way. I love my Rex... and I want the new frame.

I couldn't find it on Align's site... how about a page link??

Funny... on the link you posted, it says nothing about being from Align. And if you click on the parts list... it shows you parts for the T-rex... including it's plastic frame. Could it be a copy??

This is the website where the trex was probably first seen. Now the x-400 is on it.

Here is the link: http://www.lichann.com.tw/ and click on the left hand side "Whats New" or you can go directly to the page at http://www.lichann.com.tw/X400/x400.htm.

hey , it looks like the t-rex will have a V3 , which is better all around , look at the swash , it has a anti brace on there , the T-rex has the seesaw anti brackets ,
Al , well theres a design for MCCPM carbon frames layed out already for you ,

cool , we have a little rappy 60 now , now all we need is a little baby Ion with 2s packs riding on each side, boy that would be nice if they woold make one , huh? maybe I will make my own little one , got the big one here working on it now, huh? how to make a little tempest 3D head , hard one there

I think it looks great but I would MUCH rather have the frame done with CF. Aluminum bends and after a couple hard landings the frame may not be true anymore. It would be hard to copy the same pieces they have in the pic. If they do that I'll be one of the first in line to get it.

According to the website (www.microhelico.com) the X-400 weighs 40g less (300g) than the T-rex (340g).

X-400


Align called me this morning. They thought this is MicroHeli but actually it is microhelico!

These people has no address and telephone. Only website and email.

They tried to say this is the new version of T-REX. As I know from Align they do not have any new version yet.

Be careful to the business that has no address and telephone, you may never receive your goods.

Don't buy alloy frames unless you never crash.

Like you said they bend easily. And usually if one part bends they all do.

CF or G-10 is the only way to go with stacked frame sets.
