T-Rex 150X features built in Futaba S-FHSS 2.4Ghz system, and support the use of Spektrum DSMX / JR DMSS satellite receivers.
Miniature size, control precision that resembles the larger helicopters, enables you to enjoy flying inside a confined space. Beginners can even enjoy this with ease by just turning down the speed. The innovative breakthrough T-Rex 150X will bring you a new dimension of flying enjoyment.
TECH NOTE (SPEKTRUM): You MUST use an external Spektrum Receiver or gyro which supports Spektrum binding, to bind a remote satellite receiver FIRST before connecting to the 150X. The 150X isn't able to bind current generation remote satellite Spektrum receivers such as SPM9745.
- Fully assembled and configured; just add a Futaba S-FHSS transmitter or Spektrum DSMX - JR DSMJ/DMSS satellite receiver and transmitter, then you're ready to fly.
- Integrated control system with specially optimized 6-axis gyro, receiver, electronic speed controller.
- All metal DFC main rotor head assembly featuring high end aesthetic and superior flight performance.
- 9000kV Brushless motor used in main rotor; paired with 2S 7.4V 250mAh battery, the unimaginable power will surprise your senses.
- 4g digital micro servos increase helicopter control speed and precision.

All I can say to the others who tried the original and were disappoint is that the 150X is a whole new beast. Power, stability and precision are the only three words that ring in my mind. First a word of advice, in the apps Setup menu in parameters under Cyclic "Advance" set the Cyclic Gain from 50% to 100% and this thing will fly like it's on rails and that Big helicopter feel you've been looking for in a Micro, that's here and now on this bird just crank the cyclic gain to %100 and work you way backwards from that if it feels to mechanical for you. I've flown at least 12 flights at 100% Gain and the heli has shown no bad tendencies due to setting the Gain so high.
Very happy I gave the 150X the benefit of the doubt, Very satisfied with this purchase. Horizon needs pack up their Micro Heli Division because align has nailed it.
P.s. Attitude mode Sucks... let's not go there...
If you do a little research on this model (something I did NOT do before purchasing it unfortunately - bad on me), you will discover that many many people are having problems with it... especially when trying to use a Spektrum TX/RX.
I would not recommend the 150X unless you are interested in a very nice looking $240 paper-weight.
Setup: I would like to say that I had zero issues with setting grs system from my phone (thx for setup guide on youtube).
Flight performance: It is just incredible, I can do flips rolls pirouettes in any direction at any time without any issues, I'm trying to make tic tocs)) but it seems I need to spent additional time to precision adjustments to make it more precise for me. I even flew on a windy day it's become more challenging but it is possible!!!
Durability: Saying that this bird is bulletproof is to say nothing) I saw in videos how people crashed this heli to the asphalt then just put the canopy back and continue flying... I made a lot of small crashes for about few last weeks =) (I'm training inverted funnels on this heli) I have no serious damages... Only one issue that I have - I believe I bent my main and featuring shafts))) but it is acceptable)
Issues: Seems like because of many crashes and bent shafts some times I can notice the small tail wag, before crashes - I noticed it only on very hard maneuvers.
1) my kit arrived with updated main grips and main shaft
2) I received 300mah 2s lipos instead of 250mah... I don't know is this kit was updated, or I'm just got lucky
PS: Despite the fact that the helicopter is sufficiently accurate in control and absolutely safe for the pilot and surrounding people, you should have at least basic skills of flying. I believe it is an intermediate+ level machine.
I hope this helps someone. Good luck.
Super stable, super easy setup
Glad I got one. This is the best micro I have and I've bought many of them before.
