Flight video:

Experienced in numerous of innovations, the brand new T-REX 500X is now ready to go. More attractive and creative design ideas are all in here, it absolutely would be your favorite T-REX 500X model ever.

Refresh and refine, T-REX 500X adapt with brand new FL rotor head system, utilizes an extremely low CG design which reduces resistance during 3D maneuvers while increasing flight responsiveness and precision. A progressive design adds a gloss silver and red anodizing appearance which continue our quality development based on our 700 class helicopter. The T-REX 500X main frame utilizes composite material integration technology on carbon side frame plates, including the addition of battery mounting side rails, and a top motor mount design. 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 to keep the best. Also T-REX 500X landing skid is tilted 5 degrees forward to improve crashworthiness.

T-REX 500X utilizes 470mm main blades and 520MX(1600KV/3527) motor with 20% power upgrades than the original 1600KV/3225 motor. The latest new RCE-BL80X Brushless ESC support dual BEC output from 6 ~ 8.4V providing efficient and superior power. The NEW DS530M/DS535M digital servos are with extreme torque and speed response allow to support faster, more precise and accurate flight performance.

Equipped with all the top end electronic devices, T-REX 500X is as stable and powerful like the large scale helicopters. It is about to re-define the 500-class helicopters in your mind.

Focus Shots

New extended 470mm main blades for T-REX 500X effectively improve the flying stability and power performance. Enhance the power for better control allow to enjoy T-REX 500X flights same like other large size helicopters. New 78 size tail blades are longer in length and offer superior and precise tail holding performance, even during demanding 3D flight.

The brand new low CG 500FL Flybarless Rotor Head System utilizes the precision grinding of high-carbon steel hollow shaft effectively increase its concentricity. Allow to reduce resistance during 3D maneuvers, increased flight responsiveness and precision. In addition, the styling appearance harmony with red anodized and stainless color, bring out the high quality just like 700 size 3D helicopter.

 

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

New 520MX(1600KV/3527) motor features high efficiency, superior power, excellent torque, low current draw, and a low operating temperature. Allow to provide maintaining consistent torque and head speed through continuous 3D maneuvers.

 

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. In addition, the styling appearance harmony with red anodized and stainless color bring out the high tactile appeal.
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.

 

RCE-BL80X is specially designed for T-REX 500X providing higher currency output and support for high voltage servos with an internal BEC output from 6V to 8.4V which can be set up based on servo specification.

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.

 

DS530M HV Cyclic and DS535M 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.
Brand New Belt Drive Assembly design allow for quiet operation and low cost on serviceability.

 

Ultilize of strengthen main gear case features in using 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.

 

A 19mm wide Tail Boom to improves the torsional strength. Carbon Fiber Tail Control Rod is practical and improves the helicopters tail control.

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 78 size Tail Blades.

Always wanted a Trex 500 heli

I've wanted a Trex 500 heli for years and was finally able to add it my collection, it is my 3rd heli and my 1st flybarless. The setup with the MicoBeast is much easier than with just a tail gyro, since it simplifies aspects that were previously tedious mechanical adjustments. The maiden hover went perfectly with no mishaps. The build was also much easier than my previous heli, since improvements have been made in the design. Was expecting a month to build the heli, took my time and still had it done in 2 weeks.

The only down side was the main blades were out of balance by approx 6.5 grams, it took a lot of tape to bring both blades into balance.

Looking forward to seeing this beauty fly.

Great kit

Shipping was on point. I couldn't believe a heli this big could fit in such a small box. I just finished the assembly and I am working on setting up the microbeast. Freddycanfly on youtube has and entire video series for the set up and it was a huge help with understanding all the parameters. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase!

Great product

I am almost done with the assembly and so far so good. I usually don't read manuals but in this case I looked up graphic and went by those pictures. The only problem I had with the ball links for servo horns were hard to see but it could be my aging eyes. Can't wait to fly this heli.

Great Heli

Just finished the build and haven’t flown it yet. This is a great package with great electronics at a very reasonable price. I prefer the belt drive tail but both versions work. With that said, I will add that I am not a big fan of the microbeast flybarless. It works ok but is a little difficult to set up. So I also ordered the iKon 2 Bluetooth for the first time. It has a wizard for setup and a panic recovery mode.

I have a lot of Align T-Rex helis in all sizes and I have never been disappointed.

1st build

Lots of good info tips in the manual. I recommend disassembling every piece of the head. Don't expect the parts to be correct. Dave Le is awesome with technical assistance @ HeliDirect! If your planning on using the MicroBeast Plus Pro upgrade. You will need to add an rpm phase sensor for the Pro upgrade which I'll add is great! Align also responded to a FB message I sent. Very good customer service. I'm very happy with the build overall.
I've been flying 360s for over a year, ready for the 500!

Great kit it assembled very easy, like all Align kits. First time flybarless and that has been a challenge to set up the Microbeast with the right receiver??
