I see they have the specs out on the 470P and it is a little lighter. Also recommended battery size is only up to 6s 1100-1400mAh while the M version says 1400-1800mAh. I wonder why the plastic takes a smaller battery? It looks to have the same servos, motor and speed control. It seems like the plastic version might actually have better performance with a lighter battery and overall weight. Anyone else seeing what I'm seeing?

I just noticed the length spec is 705 for the P and 755 for the M. I wonder what is up with that? Could be miss print? Blade length is 380 on both.

I think plastic being cheaper and lighter might be the way to go.

The length is 755 for 470LP.

Weight(w/o battery): 840g for 470LP

Weight(w/o battery): 860g for 470LM

20g is nothing.

Also according to the main website battery requirements for bot models are the same.

Sorry but it looks like you got some bad info.

I should have mine in next 2 days. Still not a huge fan for belt, but why not.

Could be,? I was going off of these links. Didn't make much sense to me on the length and battery differences.
Scroll to the bottom for the specs. They still show what I was talking about. Probably not right though

A quick look at the specs shows it has a low tail gear ratio like most Align models not really designed for those who want to experiment with low head speeds.

Looking at some of the competition they have a > 4:1 ratio where as Align it is 3.7:1.

I hope I am wrong. The T-Rex 500 when I had one had to have a really high head speed, IMO, just to get a stable hover.
