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. The 470L utilizes a high efficient belt drive assembly design with an innovative adjustable belt guide pulley, providing a convenient way to adjust the belt tension by releasing or tightening the screw. This screw is used to maintain optimal belt tension improving the life of the belt and lowering maintains costs. The landing skid is tilted 5 degrees forward to improve crashworthiness and makes T-REX470L more avant-garde and dynamic.
The T-REX 470L is equipped with the large outer diameter 470MX motor (1800KV) which is highly efficient providing superior power, excellent torque, improved current draw, and a lower operating temperature which are excellent improvements as compared to the 460MX motor.
Extended 380mm main blades effectively improve the flying stability and power performance. The new engineered airfoil design effectively reduces turbulence at the end of the main blades,this saves power consumption during extreme 3D flight. New 69 size tail blades are longer in length and offer superior tail holding performance, even during demanding 3D flight.
Brand New 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. Brand New 470 Main Shaft and Feathering Shaft: Main Shaft outer dimension increased from Ø5mm to Ø6mm, while the Feathering Shaft outer dimension increased from Ø4mm to Ø5mm,effectively strengthening the Main and Feathering Shaft while improving durability.
New 470MX motor features; high efficiency, superior power, excellent torque, low current draw, and a low operating temperature. The 470MX is capable of maintaining consistent torque and head speed through continuous 3D maneuvers. 470MX motor is designed for 3D flight.
New Swashplate design with zero slop delivering a precise and accurate controlled flight.
Brand new CNC metal reinforcement plate and brace compare with frame mounting bolt effectively increase the torsional stength of main frame, under extreme 3D maneuver, you can strongly feel its solid reinforcement from its structure.
Carbon fiber side frame plates are manufactured using a proprietary composite material integration technology which integrates the battery mounting rails into the frame. This unique use of open spaces within the frame creates a rigid frame and is aesthetically pleasing.
An additional 3rd main shaft bearing block increases the strength of the main frame while improving 3D flight.
Brand new latching battery tray which utilizes integrated mounting rails inside the frames to simplify insertion / removal of battery while providing protection for the battery.
Specially designed for T-REX 470 providing higher currency output and support for high voltage servos with an internal BEC output from 5V to 8.4V which can be set up based on servo specification.
DS350M HV Cyclic and DS455 HV Rudder servos support up to 8.4V for superior responsiveness, extreme torque, and improved performance.
Innovative adjustable belt guide pulley, allows a convenient way to adjust the belt tension by releasing or tightening the screw. The screw is used to maintain optimal belt tension over time.
The One Way Bearing is manufactured using bearing steal and after heat treatment the hardness is HRC50-55. This larger bearing has a higher load carry capacity which reduces the loss of momentum and improves the fficiency, speed, and smoothness of the main rotor. The new main gear case and all-metal central pulley transmission system is an efficient design to deliver the ultimate performance.
Landing skid is tilted 5 degrees forward to improve crashworthiness.
Newly designed vertical tail servo mount to improve CG while increasing the responsiveness of 3D flight.
A wider Tail Boom to improves the torsional strength. Carbon Fiber Tail Control Rod is practical and improves the helicopters tail control.
Designed using a proprietary material integration technology which creates a unique look and improves the Vertical Stabilizer's stiffness.
The newly designed dual point supported tail control assembly delivers slop free performance while improving rudder resolution and precision.
The new tail rotor holder design includes thrust bearings which increases durability, as well as significantly improving the accuracy and efficiency of the tail performance when using 69 size Tail Blades.
