I think I'm going to try JR's forza 450ex, they have a 3 blade head available. Maybe it fits on the 'Rex too?

Now I'm really waiting to see the 3 blade head for the 450! I would think with all of the Align 450 sales, they would make one!

Good deal. I'll try it on the 450 6s before I put one on a 700 or 600.

Are the Hobbywing ESCs any good? I've never had one.

New 470 Trex Dominator? Who's buying one? Too bad it doesn't include a 3 blade setup!

I've put my name on the waiting list for one on http://www.aligntrexstore.com/

I think I need to update my 6s 450/470 lineup with all the new stuff! I really would like the 3 blade head though!

Looks like 1800 mah 6s pack is the size. That should equate to longer flight times than the 450 6s packs that I flew with 1350 mah packs. I will convert mine to 3 blade as soon as the mod comes out!!

Really looking forward to this new size.

I will sell all of my 4s and 6s machines at a really good price if anyone is interested. Check my gallery to see them.. All offers will be appreciated!

Here are some pictures of the Align and Turnigy batteries. By my gram scale the Turnigy weights in at 260.1 grams and the Align at 273.3 grams. With the Align battery's additional 300 mah's and only a slight weight addition of 13.2 grams, it would appear that the Align may be the better choice. Only flight testing will tell for sure.

I spent a couple of hours today on the 470. A pretty fast build with the normal Align layout. The Align servos look like a piece of art, simply beautiful. The aluminum alloy servo cases are just fantastic. Hopefully they perform as good as they look!

I ran into one minor problem with the gyro mounting plate installation between the carbon main frames. The slots of one main frame side were slightly too small to allow the plate to install flush against the frame. A small amount of cleaning of the frame slot with a small file made quick work of the problem and the plate now installs correctly. My kit also did not contain the two socket button self tapping screws (T2x8mm) used to install the tail rotor servo in the tail servo mount. This wasn't a problem for me since I have a good supply of Align hardware, but it might cause someone else to have a bad day.

Here's a few pics.
