My kit just got dilivered at my door. The box have a red circle sticker that says "lengthen shaft" so I'm guessing inside I will find the longer tail shaft, but I don't know if it will have the older shorter one. I ordered mine through the trex store. I'll have to see if my motor has a flat spot on the motor shaft. Too bad I don't get to build it until after Christmas since it's my girlfriends gift to me for xmas.

I forgot to order a swash leveler when I got my kit but lucked out when the one for my old X3 worked on the 470 perfectly.

So
It is your choice on what connector you use for your 470L series harness.
Last
As you know the two 3s w series harness the voltage will be kicked up to 6s but the amps will stay the same or limited to one of the 3s LiPo amp rating (V=IR stuff).

Red face Trex 600 Low $ LiPo

$15 and $12 6s LiPo

Align Trex Store.com has Trex 600 6s LiPo that fit the Trex 470Lp. I have these two LiPo in hand and they easily fit in my 470Lp.

2150mAh 6s 25C LiPo $15.00 w JST
2100mAh 6s 20C LiPo $12.50 w TP (no JST)

Question?

Align Trex 470Lp manual limits the 470L to 1,400mAh to 1,900mAh Why?

Because that's a reasonable size. There's no reason to run a battery 2100mAh or so. Also those old Align batteries are on sale/blowout because they are outdated and performance is not good compared to newer ones. Please note, those are only 20-25C--not enough for a helicopter this powerful.

Red face 20C 25C 65C

Thx
They were super super cheep so I picked them up just for a test drive.
So
Trex 600 $12 and $15 6s LiPo will fly sport but will bog down in 3D.
Ok
I also have on order 1500mAh 6S 65C LiPo that should do the trick.

Red face 470L Belt

Belt Setup
Tight enough that turning the head by hand and holding the tail it doesn't skip easily, not much tighter (still fairly loose). It's a trade-off; you can also do it quite tight, but you will notice the mechanics won't spin so freely.
Also
Tight enough not to skip in the air.
New belts stretch a little and on some heli the boom can slip, so do a check on boom and tension after a couple of flights.
Temperature does not effect the belt but an aluminum boom will contract and expand in the cold and hot weather.
470L Storage
You could reduce the belt tension but just like in your Ferrari or McLaren (I'm a Honda SUV guy) it is not necessary.

No need to change the tension for storage. The tension won't change noticeably.

Red face Tail Shaft w Set Screw

New longer shaft and set screw setup.

I will bet there will be higher tooth count part coming out very soon. This will make it super easy to replace the belt.

Not uncommon for storing over the winter. Sometimes it gets a hard lump where it was wrapped around the pulley on the tail shaft for a long period of time that can cause vibe issues. Totally unnecessary for short term storage of course.

Have heard of it anyway, never experienced it. I fly all winter and never had it happen on airframes that sat for months but some ppl have had it happen.

Red face Tail Drive Belt

470L use a spring loaded pully system to tension the tail dive belt.

To reduce all tail drive belt tension you screw in the 2 socket screws all the way.

Belt Setup
Bottom out (tighten) the 2 socket screws This compresses the tension spring,
Then back out the 2 socket screws 1.5-2 turns.

Default Auto Belt Tension System

I would like to see a Auto Belt Tension System.

Maybe a new tail block with new hardware.

Hopefully Align has one in the works.
