I dun see much difference from the current v2,it just comes with TT and new frame.These changes doesn't make much changes to the flying character of a trex 450 v2.How about a 350 blade support?

Nope wont buy it will hang on to my current T450 SE and my Rave.
I don't see anything close to the Rave here on this bird.

well see but right now I'm very disappointed in Align and JK.

The have had not only the Rave and the G5 to dissect and fly and but also the Furion.
and yet for the most part its still just a Trex450 they didn't move the bar any higher they added a few minor updates and tossed on a TT and called it a new bird.

Sorry but if Align wants to take the 450 3D crown back they really should have paid more attention to Outrage and NextD.

Their birds are in a different league flight characteristic wise with the 350 blades and bigger power setups.

Even for a rubbish pilot like me the G5 flips and rolls far far better than the TRex 450.

+1 on the 350mm blades. If 350 mm blades are support then I will consider one, purely due to parts availability and bump it up to 6S.

I'm going to say that 350 blades are supported and here's why.

They redesigned the boom support rods to be longer to reduce flex and they are offering the kit with new tail blades for the v2.

If you look at a V2 with the new boom supports the horizontal tail fin is much further back on the boom than on this V3/Pro.

Lol, so you're extremely disappointed with a helicopter that you've seen 4 pictures of? You haven't even seen any specs!

Yes very disappointed. we need more than a TT to put the 450 at the same level of its target competition.

fly a G5 or a Rave with the bigger blades and 4S or 6S power and tell me the Trex doesn't need this capability.

JK is putting his name on it I'd sure as well want a heli with my name on it to be the best. it took CY years to get the Rave to the point it is now and it paid off. JK has the power of Align behind him. One of the biggest RC names in the world. and yet this is all he came up with?

Yes I am disappointed I was looking forward to Align putting some massive pressure on the Rave and Outrages G5 bird. This isnt the bird.

Saying all that based on some pre-pre-production LEAKED photos is pretty asinine if you ask me.

It sure looks like to me that the tail blades are bigger on this 450 than the ones on V2.

You tell me what u think?

Yes they are. Here is a comparison shot with a K&B blade.

USNaviationjay,
This was posted on the other site,
That video was done with the regular 430XL with 13T and an Align 2200 I believe is the pack they have right now. Same main gear as the V2 giving it the same ratio. One of the differences that people haven't noticed between this heli and the V2 is the distance between the blade grip bolts giving the new machine a bigger rotor span. I have not measured the differences between the two but it is noticeable which give it more pop. I don't think it will be necessary to be going to a bigger blade on this bird. But everyone likes to do things there own way Hope this answers a few of your guy's questions.
