The Align T-Rex 500X is a refreshing revision of the ever popular 500 class helicopter! Featuring many new updates such as the FL Rotor Head System, larger 470mm main blades, torque tube tail driven system, & sliding battery tray system. All of the updates both physically and electronically are built to deliver one of the best 500 class flight experiences to date! Typically smaller helicopters are not as stable, and not as powerful as their larger class brothers. The 500X changes this concept drastically and is as stable as it's larger brothers.

Features at a Glance
  • 470mm Main Blades: The larger 470mm main blades aid in providing more stability, power, and performance.
  • 500FL Rotor Head System: Replacing the DFC system, the FL Rotor Head offers excellent stability, a high level of responsiveness, and precision in flight.
  • Torque Tube Tail System: Efficient and powerful torque tube design, incredible performance advantage.  
  • Align 520MX Brushless Motor: High efficiency, excellent power, high torque, & low current draw.
  • Align RCE-BL80A ESC: Designed for the 500X and providing current output, with additional support for high voltage BEC output (6V-8.4V).
  • Align Cyclic & Rudder Servos: Equipped with the DS530M & DS535M High Voltage Servos, the 500X will benefit from the available high torque and high speed outputs the DS530M & DS535M offer.

Align T-Rex 500XT Top Combo Helicopter Kit (Torque Tube)
Years ago I had the T-rex 500 3G kit, the one that came with a separate gyro and flight controller, and most of the programming was done through the radio as opposed to the FBL controller menus. For some reason or another, I much preferred that one. I don't know what happened to Align, but the quality seems to have dropped in the time period between the two. Overall this heli seems too big for a 500, and kinda flimsy in comparison to my old 3G. I had an issue on my first flight with the controller stabilizing in reverse, went through all the settings, confirmed all was good and changed nothing, and then all was fine after a restart. From that moment on I didn't trust it. The way they mount the ESC on this kit is kinda goofy too. Back at the same time as my 3G, I also had a Blade 550X - and that was a much nicer heli and about the same size! As for this one... after another tail strike, I parted it out.

Thank you for the accurate delivery.And I bought it during the sale period and bought it at a lower price.
Some of the parts were damaged due to the lack of quality control by Align company, but Amain Hobbies exchanged and refunded them.
