    trex 400 differences?

    Does anyone know of a forum/site to find out the exact differences on the Trex models and the characteristics of each. Im looking into buying a trex in the near/close future, but not sure which one to get and why there are huge price differences. Not sure why there are some models online for $329 and others are like $469.. Thanks for all the help.

    FYI, there is only one Trex 450 and that is made by Align. Everything else is a cheaper clone of the original, hence the price difference.

    There is an art to flying an RC Helicopter. The art lies in learning how to throw it at the ground and miss.

    It may be more helpful to him if you showed him something specific to his question. That is a lot of posts to shift thru.

    RE: trex 400 differences?

    Actually, there are only two diff Align Trex 450's being built today. The previous version was the 450 SEv2 which is a proven machine and still available in clone form.

    Today, Align makes the Trex 450 Sport which has a belt driven tail and with double stacked side frames. The Belt driven tail is said to offer a little more forgiveness to the rookie pilot with regard to tail strikes and the frame setup provides ample space for electronics. This can be purchased in Kit (w/motor and esc) and Super combo form (w/everything except RX)

    The second version offered by Align is the 450 Pro which has a single piece side frame and torque tube driven tail rotor. It has less space for electrics but the single piece side frames offer more rigidity to the overall heli and hold up very well in the event of a crash. I have not flown a Sport but I can say the Pro tail holding ability is better than the SEv2. The Pro can also be ordered in the Kit or Super Combo kits.
