Talking Just ordered an 800 DFC Pro

Hey guys,

I just ordered a T-Rex 800 DFC Pro which should arrive by the end of the week. From the reports from you guys on here I can't wait to build it and fly it.

I've been flying my 550L for about two years now and really looking I forward to adding the 800 to my fleet.

Ben

Lucky bugger! I've always wanted the 800. Be sure to post pics when you get it all built up

Congrats! Building a 750+ size machine is a really satisfying experience. Getting it airborn is bliss. The disk is huge. The sound is mental. And its still so fast.

Align's make such hard hitting heli's. My fav 800dfc flight i've seen for some inspiration.

Cheers guys. Not long to wait now, just waiting for the email from the shop to tell me it's in! They said by the end of the week, so should be any day now

That video is incredible. I can't believe how quickly it moves for such a big Heli. Wow!

I'm looking forward to the sound more than anything at the moment, and the build of course

I also stepped up from a 550L to a 800Pro. It's one hell of a huge heli. Really impressive in the air. Nothing compared to the 550L.

You'll definitely love it as much as i love mine.

Take care of your new huge baby.

Interesting you did the same move from 550L to 800

The 800 arrived today from Fast Lad (UK). It's just awesome! The build starts this weekend but I've had all the components out and have been just in awe of the quality of the engineering again. Align do make some really nice stuff!

All I need to do now is find somewhere in the house big enough to store it while I'm not flying it

Hi there,

I do have the Pro DFC. What measurement do you need? The length from frame to end of the stand off?

The stand off is exactly 25mm from the tip to where it joins the main frame.

I hope that helps?
