New Heli-Setups Section 14Mar08

We have added a new setups section to the site. By far, the most numerous questions we see regard what to put in a heli and how to set up pitch and throttle curves. The section is a bit sparse now, just the T-Rex 500 at the moment, but we will be adding much more information over time including suggestions for the T-Rex 450 and 600 plus probably a few non-Align helis as well. All of this information is simply meant as a guide and no one should think they must configure their heli the way we have them listed. We appreciate any comments and will incorporate feedback and new equipment into the charts over time. We hope you find this a useful resource.

T-Rex 450v2 and 600CFAlso see the all new T-Rex 600E Pro and our T-Rex 700 Review.

The T-Rex 600 is currently Align’s flagship RC electric helicopter (there is also the newer 600N nitro version). The T-Rex 600 is a sizable bird, approximately .50 size, at 1200mm (47.25 in) long, 388/405mm (15.25 in/16 in) high and with main blades 600 mm (23.62in) long giving a total main rotor diameter of 1350 mm (53.15 in). Flying weight is around 7 pounds. The larger size and weight provide increased stability and the size also makes it easier to see at longer distances. (more…)

Spektrum Deluxe Transmitter Case — Review 02Mar08

Spektrum Deluxe Transmitter CaseAfter some delays Spektrum finally released its Deluxe Transmitter Case. The case is specially designed to carry the DX7, or other 2.4Ghz transmitters (and could easily carry FM-style transmitters with little to no modifications). The case is 12 x 16.5 x 6 inches in size and made of aluminum similar in design to the Align T-Rex 450 case. It is a strong sturdy case that will protect its contents from major drops and dings but is not made of solid aluminum so anyone falling or jumping onto the case would damage it. (more…)

Align T-Rex 450 Aluminum Case — Review 02Mar08

The Align T-Rex 450 case is a great way to transport your T-Rex 450 (or other 450-sized heli). It is a sturdy aluminum case that will protect your heli, and other contents, from major drops and dings. It is not a solid aluminum case so someone jumping or falling on it would probably cause damage but otherwise it provides good protection. It also includes a detachable shoulder strap. (more…)

Align has a Main Blade Aluminum Case for transporting your rotor blades. It is an aluminum case similar in construction to the Align 450 case. It is 30 x 4 x 4.25 inches in size and is foam lined. It will protect contents from major drops and dings but not any major weight such as someone jumping onto it. (more…)
