Align T-Rex 700E DFC HV Super Combo
;e reduced height of the DFC rotor head is a result of the direct control of the cyclic servos and because the blade grip pushrods are designed to replace the fol- lower. Notice the cyclic servos are mounted directly under the swashplate, eliminating control slop and the need for bellcranks and additional pushrods.
Every major component is preassembled
at the factory, and other individual parts
have their appropriate screws installed.
However, what is unique about this preas-
sembly is that the bolts did not have any
Loctite, which means each bolt must be
disassembled, coated with a small amount
of Loctite, and then reassembled. This pro-
cess eliminates all those bags of little parts
and the tedious process of making sure you
have exactly the right screw in the proper
place, which makes assembly much quick-
er, simpler, and more enjoyable.
Hover: Initial flight testing was performed
Aerobatics: ;e ability of a helicopter to
on a windy Florida day. ;e reduced
height of the DFC rotor head, compact
landing gear, and slim profile reduced parasite drag, making the 700E
less a;ected by the wind. Combine this design with the stability of the
programmable 3GX flybarless control system, and you have a helicopter
that is extremely solid, even in the windiest conditions.
Forward flight: Even with a reduced rotor speed of 1800rpm (reduced for
the 700E, that is), transition into forward flight is smooth and positive. ;e
large rotor disk, combined with twin ;under Power 6S 5,000mAh LiPo
battery packs feeding the powerful 750 MX motor, enables rapid climbs
and e;ortless maneuvering through the largest
maneuvers. But flying backward is as important
as forward flight, and the combination of the 3GX
flight control system and slop-free tail rotor held
the tail steady in the most demanding tail slides
without blowing out.
maneuver is a combination of excess main
rotor thrust and the maneuvering capability
of the flight control system. And this is exactly
what the 700E was designed to do. Its powerful
2,200rpm headspeed and extended collective
pitch range of the carbon 3G blades redefine the
terms “aerobatics” and “3D maneuvering.” Large pitch and roll rates are
immediately available, but without control interaction or loss of control.
;e beautiful and brightly painted canopy also makes the 700E stand out
IN THE AIR
in flight for better orientation.
Autorotations: ;e large rotor disk of the 700E, stability of the 3GX
flight control system, and the powerful shaft-driven tail rotor make
autorotations a pleasure to perform for even less experienced pilots.
Confidence in this helicopter builds quickly, making tail slides and
backward approaches just an everyday maneuver.
If I had to choose a short list of words to best describe the Align T-Rex
700E HV Super Combo, I would choose “quality,” “value,” “design,”
and “performance.” ;e highest quality parts are used in the 700E,
at all times. ;e T-Rex 700E HV Super Combo is the helicopter that will
exceed your expectations and performance requirements no matter
what your flying capabilities are.
