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. The brand new DS450 digital cyclic servos and DS455 digital tail servo, support up to V8.4, high voltage input, improving the servos torque and speed. The new RCE-BL50X brushless ESC with an internal BEC provides 5.0V to 8.4V which can be set based on servo specification. The new high-end electronics effectively enhance flight performance.

 
RH47E02XW

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.

RH47E02XW

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.

 
RH47E02XW

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.

RH47E02XW

New Swashplate design with zero slop delivering a precise and accurate controlled flight.

 
RH47E02XW

Manufactured using the latest composite technology to embed brass inserts into main shaft bearing block, 
which enhance the structure integrety and strength. You can feel the solid structure even in extreme 3D flight.

RH47E02XW

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.

 
RH47E02XW

An additional 3rd main shaft bearing block increases the strength of the main frame while improving 3D flight.

RH47E02XW

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.

 
RH47E02XW

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.

RH47E02XW

DS350M HV Cyclic and DS455 HV Rudder servos support up to 8.4V for superior responsiveness, 
extreme torque, and improved performance.

 
RH47E02XW

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.

RH47E02XW

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.

 
RH47E02XW

Landing skid is tilted 5 degrees forward to improve crashworthiness.

RH47E02XW

Newly designed vertical tail servo mount to improve CG while increasing the responsiveness of 3D flight.

 
RH47E02XW

A wider Tail Boom to improves the torsional strength.

RH47E02XW

Designed using a proprietary material integration technology which 
creates a unique look and improves the Vertical Stabilizer's stiffness.

 
RH47E02XW

The newly designed dual point supported tail control assembly delivers slop free 
performance while improving rudder resolution and precision.

RH47E02XW

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.

Great Heli, especially for the price

Great price, flies well, parts are inexpensive

My First Unassembled RC Helicopter Kit.

I have been in the Hobby for about ten years, I have eight Heli's most of which are Blade Helicopters that have come pre-assembled. I purchased an Align 500PRO DFC on Ebay which someone else assembled, & I decided it was finally time to get a kit and do my own build. I decided on the Align 470LP because of great reviews, & the price was very good. I also wanted the plastic Blade Grips, & Rotor Head because in the event of a blade strike it would be far cheaper to replace those things versus the whole rotor assembly if it was aluminum, & I can always upgrade to the aluminum parts after I get comfortable with my new 470LP.
The instructions were pretty easy to follow, everything went together well, I just wish it came with some extra M2.5 screws. I was either missing a couple or lost a couple of the M2.5X6 screws and had a hard time finding screws that small, once I did I was able to quickly complete the build. I decided to use a Spektrum AR7200BX FBL controller/receiver I had laying around, & have it almost completed. I just have to dial in the blades with my pitch gauge and set the system parameters then I should be ready to fly it!
Overall I'm very happy the way it all came together and I'm already looking at the Align 550X for my next build. I bought several dozen M2 & M2.5 screws & washers at various lengths just in case I end up losing any on my future builds, anything bigger than those sizes are easy to get at pretty much any hardware store. I have already purchased a BD Axon which I will use on my next build, which will be purchased from Helidirect. They shipped my 470LP swiftly, & their customer service seems to be very good, when I had a question they go back to me within thirty minutes, good customer service goes a long way with me so I will be going to them exclusively for my future needs such as Helicopter kits, parts, transmitters, etc.

Sweet Heli

Align always makes great kits. Been away with helicopters for a few years and wanted to get back into it. Coming from a 250 and a 450 size, this 470 is bigger but awesome. Even can’t beat the price and HELIDIRECT once again delivers with amazing customer service and ultra fast shipping. Super Fast Thanks Again

470LP

This is my first time building a Heli kit. The kit went together very easy. Each package is well marked. Take your time and keep all the contents of the package you are working on together and you will not have a problem. There are plenty of build videos of the align heli's on line to help.
