My T-Rex came with only 2 sets of blades. How come some people are saying that theirs came with three?

Thanks,

Michael

I believe resellers are pulling a set and adding them to their store stock to sell individually. If the Align seal is broken or missing from the kit box then 100 to 1 they been pulled by the merchant you bought from. My T-Rex 450x kit came directly from Taiwan with the Align seal intact and it had one set of the rubber ducky blades and two sets of wooden 315mm blades inside.

Miniature Aircraft sells SAB 280s for the Zoom, I may try them. They look like they have a wider chord than the stock blades, so should make up for shorter length.

MinAir part # 3696-50 SAB Mini Rotor Blades - 280mm $39.95

I just got the 2 sets like you. No seal on mine and it looked like someone had rummaged through it.

Mine came with one set of crappy wood blades and one set of align woodies... I don't think mine was sealed... I suppose I was only expecting one plastic and one wood set of blades when I ordered it. Therefore I got what I paid for... but I wouldn't have complained if I found an extra set of woodies though ... The plastic blades are pretty much garbage....

I checked out the kit contents for the Align TREX 450X on Aligns site http://www.align.com.tw/shop/produc...products_id=657 and indeed the kit is supposed to come with two sets of wooden blades... I guess now that I think about it I am a little dissapointed that mine had one set removed somewhere along the chain...

I just checked the retailers website I bought mine from and they are advertising that the TREX 450X comes with 2 sets of blades so I got what I ordered...At least the blades are cheap enough

I don't want to hear anyone complain about only getting 2 sets of blades, because I only got the plastic pair, and had to order a set of wood blades.

If you got the original kit before the 450x was released, that's all there was supposed to be.

Nope, mine is a 450 X. It says it on the box, and on the decals, and it's got the correct tail gear ratio. But mine only came with one set of plastic blades.

Sucks to be me!
