Is this part different from the original kit?

I found the part on AlignTrexStore. Guess they have a lot of tail problems. I will wait until I have all the updates before I put mine in the air.

My 8s 500 didn't have enough tail control until I found longer tail blades from Zeal. Now it flies great

I have that part on alert with Aligntrexstore. I will wait for all the upgrade parts for the tail before I finish mine.

My 8s 500 also had tail problems until I found the longer Zeal tail rotor blades. It was also interesting that the Mikado Vbar did a much better job than the Align 3G unit with the shorter blades.

If Align is smart, the make different pulley sizes for this upgrade. And they should do the same with TT version.

I agree. Give people some selection if they fly low head speed.

The non-interchangeable drivegear tail rotor output shafts are now available on Aligntrexstore.com. I'm waiting on the H47T021XXT version...

Knightofcarnage,

I hope the HobbyWing Platinum PRO V4-60A is a good choice for ESC, I decided to give one a try. The specs look good. I'll see how well it does compares to my CCs I used in the past.

That is great ESC for 470L, its fits better then stock and kicks ass. Just make sure that active freewheeling is enabled. Also if your going to use an external governor mode, then you have to setup as airplane mode.

I'll make sure to turn freewheeling on. I'm thinking of using the Hobbywing RPM sensor on the Vbar Neo unit.

Here are all the final items I've added to complete my 470L.
I am not sure that the metal anti-rotation bracket is going to do anything for the model. The plastic one is very rigid.

The rpm sensor is built into the V4. The ESC lead is 4 wires.

I fitted mine upside down to allow easy access to the programming port and also because the ESC has a resistor on the bottom that is the hottest component for me so it gets better cooling.

Now there has been some discussion on settings for the v-bar governor and I have found setting the run up value to 2 from 3 but also using heli-linear in the ESC gives a very smooth spool up and no hint of a kick. It does take longer to spool up though.

What is different about the new I-shaped arm?

Andy from Sandy....

I just like the looks of the metal anti-rotation bracket.

As far as the rpm sensor, do you just need a 4 wire connection to the Vbar to run the governor?

The lead from the esc has two servo plugs on it.

One is a single orange wire that you plug into the rpm sensor port.

The other is the normal throttle / bec lead that goes to the ESC port.

If you were using a separate rpm sensor the rpm port is able to provide power. There is a picture on the case of the NEO that shows how to orient the plug.

Thx "Andy from Sandy" for the wiring information. I just received the ESC today so I now can see the servo leads.

For everyone else.. Here are some pictures of the Align ESC RCE-BL50X included in the kit and the Hobbywing Platinum Pro V4 60A ESC. You can see the difference in size of the ESCs. The Plantinum Pro is also 19.5 grams lighter than the BL50X with their respective weights of 68.6g and 49.1g as per my gram scale.
