Following the release of the T-REX 450L, which introduced an innovative design and came equipped with high-end electronic equipment. Align's most anticipated helicopter release in 2016 the T-REX 470L is born. No matter whether you are a newcomer or a professional, the brand new T-REX 470L will give you the new flying feel again.
470EFL Main Rotor Head provides superior flight stability and offers a lower CG design to reduce flying resistance while providing a more rigid and fast rotor head response. To improve the strength and durability of the main and feathering shaft the 470 main shaft outer dimension was increased from Ø5mm to Ø6mm, while the feathering shaft outer dimension was increased from Ø4mm to Ø5mm. The 470L has adopt a high standard 1.2mm 3K carbon fiber main frame and a wider body design which increases the size of the battery compartment allowing the use of larger capacity battery.
