Looks like it's all belt drive, 3S, 325mm blades.

I loved the Protos (although I've sold it now). But the T450 Pro with TT on 6S is going to be hard to beat.

Any more on the specs? e.g. FBL?

Your comments make me happy, it is about the same as when we came out with an all belt 500 heli....................they said, difficult to compete with a TT Trex 500

Looks good, wonder if the disk loading is as light as the 500 (Protos 500 Vs Trex 500)

Still looking for that Trex 600 killer tho Corrado.

Sorry Corrado, my comments weren't meant to be negative. As I said I loved the original Protos.

The way I see it is that a 450 for most people is subject to more beating than a bigger heli, and more likely to be crashed more often. For the belt to work better for most people it will need to be as easy to set up as it's bigger brother. Entirely possible if the right material and tolerances are kept.

If you make the canopy big enough to take 6S and 350 mm blades, I'm sure it will turn a lot people on to it as an alternative to the T450 Pro.

Yes, but too expensive in UK and limited vendors (like the G5).

And I like MSH :0)

Looking good!

Please correct me if I am wrong, but it looks like you have installed the 450 Pro gorilla gear on it.

Is that how the production heli will be set up?

Oh, and WHERE ARE THE PICS!

Looks like a succesful test! Had a 450 pro but the small ones just do not fly like a 500 or larger. The protos 500 is great!

I would like a nice logo 600 counterpart from MSH

If my Zoom 450 will crash finally, I know, which 450 will be in my hangar next!
Two ideas: Try to run 4S, FBL and 350mm blades!

Wow!! It looks awesome! It sounds and flies just like it's bigger brother. I just ripped the electronics out of my Align 450 and dumped it's carcass in the trash!

It seemed really powerful. What size blades and battery were you using? What motor?

BTW Corrado, you are an excellent pilot!

Here are a couple of spy pics from the video. Corrado, we need some good clear pictures!

Who cares about 350's and 4s batteries when you have this kind of AUW?


Converting to 350's is great when you have s porky 450. But it seems wasteful here.
