Default New Align 470L

Looks like a new head design from Align, reminds me a bit of a protos.

As I was looking at the pictures I had to turn around a look at my stretched Protos 500. It did look similar at first but would need some better pictures. Anyways, I wonder if this swings 470 stock and will be stretchable to 515 or larger.

The frame looks similar to a 450L, wouldn't be surprised if it was a 380mm.

The gpro isn't bad. Also from what I have seen they have been bundling kits with the beastx.

Just an educated guess, but this is align's answer to the goblin and protos 380. If you look at the thickness of the blade root in the first picture, there is no way this is swinging 470mm blades, as the root is a lot thicker on those.

True, but there is no official info on the new 700L as well but I have seen some leaked pictures.

Interesting, 2 versions coming out. One 470L speed version and a stock 470L dominator. Not much of a goblin fan here or those kinds of fuse, well I guess there's a demand for them??? Looks more like a Forza 450EX with that fuse

If someone wants a heli that looks like a Goblin they'll get a Goblin... not a Trex with a "Speed" fuse Very few people buy the speed fuses because they are not very attractive, don't flow well with the canopy like Goblins do since they canopies aren't designed for the boom cover, and they are expensive.

Yeah the Goblin started this fuse band wagon, I mean Hirobo tried to pull it off before SAB didn't they?? Now we got the Gaui X3l, and 470L Speed, Forza 450EX, ALZRC rigid, Devil etc etc which really makes you wonder people must be demanding these helis???

May be I'm speaking to soon, but atleast MSH didn't jump the band wagon

They went a different route with the EVO versions. It's sleek, and strong as HELL. And sexy. I'd take a Max V2 Evo over a G700 Comp any day of the week on looks alone, ignoring all the other factors that make me not want a Goblin
