Added the v3 to my gallery this morning.
Had to take a nice shot for the gallery thumbnail.

Used the ol Nikon D70s DSLR and set the heli on the stool in the fluffy yard grass. Looks neat! I think the canopy might just grow on me..

Nice job yet again Align. My little 250 and this here 450 are great heli's for the money and perform very well. You have me spoiled.

Ps.. I moved the canopy mount holes down and back as you can see. Makes the canopy easier to install and gives it a meaner angle of attack Will fit 4s TP pro power 30C when the time comes. I just need to do a 250 gallery when I can find the time and finish with my upgrades.

anyone else have any pics of theirs yet?!

Oops that's my busted up, old dilapidated 450SE V1

Looks like it flies fine to me!

I just shook down the heli pretty good for four minutes straight.
Returned 1600mah.

I worked the motor up to 170*
ESC was 120*
battery was 110*

Still at +-11*. Headspeed unkown.

Sounds about right!
The motor has a lot of torque to it and likes you to try and bog it down It gets that high pitch whine sound to it when you really get it going. Dig the sound. This is another one of those heli's that I can sit there and do rapid fast aileron tic tocs no problem not even in the end of the pitch range.

I'd recommend 30C batts like others are saying. I can feel that my battery is 25c towards the end of the flight. The motor wants that juice in pitchy tricks. Right now those TP pro power 30C are working really good in all the small electrics I have been playing with. Can't beat TP return support, although it seems to have gotten a bit slower now days. I either need some 3s pro power or need to go 4s and use the pro power I have. Can't decide!

I'm pretty impressed with the gyro. It was a bit more windy today. I had to drop the gain 2 points to account for that. Held pretty good even in the wind and I think the piro rate was pretty consistent!
Would be a tough choice if I went to buy a gyro between the 401 and GP750 did I just say that?

Surprisingly, the airframe almost does feel like the lepton in it's flight characteristics, but much faster. It has that "all the weight on plane" kinda feel too it. Like a mini lepton.

450 pro pics
The 450 pro goes together very quickly with zero issues. The heli can be finished in an evening with no problems. The main frames are fully assembled as is the head and tail rotor.

I have put in about 10 flights now and the heli is very smooth and quiet. The tail rotor spins slower than the previous model. The tail blades are longer to compensate for the slower tail rpm. The torque tube is smooth and I think it draws less power than the belt. This is one reason the heli feels more powerful than the V2 with the same flight times as V2. The motor is a 3700kv outrunner in a can. I comes with a 13T pinion.

The new head is very stable in the hover, yet has very good cyclic power and is more predictable and consistent for 3D. The machine flies and sounds much like the larger Trex 500. The 450 is very much more of a "bigger" heli than the previous 450, as the machine is solid and does not bobble under high loads. The Heli has a slightly larger disk as the head is about 10mm wider than the V2. The additional 10mm is mainly due to the wider head block, with wider damper spacing allowing for softer dampers for a gentle hover and yet when pushed harder the wider spacing allows for agressive cyclic response when push hard.

The tail is a huge improvement over the previous model in that it is very smooth and rock solid with the Align 750 gyro with Align DS520. The tail is completely
locked in like a larger heli.

The Canopy fits perfectly and the heli balances perfectly on the main shaft.

Nice pics!
I specially like what you said here..
For all you Align nay sayers, Align conspiracy theorists and or Align denyers, your worst nightmare is about to be realised again as the completely new 450 sized heli, except for main gear, is about to be unleashed to once again dominate the entire RC heli universe! You guys are going have to get together to brainstorm and have a few seyances and ya gonna scatch yourself raw, trying to come up with new reasons not to buy Align! Its gonna be fun to watch you trying to come up with something as JK has done a great job!
.. So true! Wait till everyone gets their hands on these!

Flies awesome out of the box!
Now I need to go get new/better batteries to keep up with the heli!

I think I'm the first one that crashed the 450 pro only 20 flights, the socket screw snap AKA jessus bolt.I really think Align has a winner with this 450.Socket screw might be my fault , Only thing I will need is main shaft blades and feathing shaft.Cant wait to get the 450 back in the air....

I just got mine from Heliproz today. What an easy build, went together very nicely and no problems. I hope to fly it tomorrow if the weather holds out.

Cool pics guys!
Keep 'em coming!
Can't wait for the weekend! Will be able to fly in the morning before the wind!

Looks like I need another case for my 450 now.

How are the stocker main blades? Is it worth considering changing em out to SAB 320s?

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

i've got some radix 325's waiting for mine, just have to hit the buy button. I'm waiting on some feedback from the early adopters. So lets hear it guys, overall impressions? crash worthiness? Worth the $ compared to something like a beam or Rave?
