Can I Buy An Align 470LT - Kit Only?
I want an Align 470LT but I don't want the super combo. Can I buy just the kit without the servos, ESC, gyro, etc? Anyone seen one for sale?

Kit only? I don't think so...

You have to buy the whole tiny heli combo and then "hit your pocket" with upgrade stuff...

I haven't been able to find a "kit only" either. I think you're correct. You can only get the heli as a combo.

What point is there in buying a super combo when I want a Futaba FBL controller, Scorpion motor, Castle Creations ESC and MKS servos? After I get done swapping out combo parts I'll be 90% on the way to a new helicopter.

Maybe I'll call Enterprise Hobbies and see what they say. Or, maybe I can get a kit outside the US.

Thank you for that. I've looked at GrandRC and they have the best offering of non-combo kits. However, at this moment, they don't offer the torque tube version (470LT).

Increasingly I'm beginning to wonder if I shouldn't just buy the combo. I'd like to run an XNova or Scorpion motor but finding one that fits my exact needs is going to take some work.

Thank you for the input but I'm looking for something a little different than the combo. I have a friend that just built a "super combo" and you're right - the Align bits are OK. His came with a servo that was DOA but it was quickly replaced.

I fly Futaba so I'll have to add a receiver. I have a CGY760 sitting here unused so I'll install that making the Microbeast not required.

I also want telemetry from the ESC and I've had very good luck with Castle Creations - so the Align ESC won't be used.

I don't fly hard 3D and I like lower head speed. I'll be looking for a motor with lower KV making the kit Align motor unnecessary.

You get the picture. The Align combo isn't bad, it just isn't what I want.

Thank you for the link. Unfortunately it takes me to the 470LM. I'm looking for the torque tube variant - 470LT. Again, thank you for taking the time to post."Well, nothing bad can happen now."
