Default HeliDirect Upgrade Parts for T-REX 500!!!

Here is the newest upgrade part, complete CNC tail system for T-REX 500, will be available very soon.

Note: The tail shaft and pulley in the pictures are not Align t-rex 500 parts. The system does not come with tail shaft and pulley. It uses stock ones.

Isn't it better to wait for the torque tube instead of getting the metal gear tail ?

All that nice metal and a plastic gear? Why? I think the Align one looks better. And re the VanDe Graff static discharge issue on a recent thread, this looks like a very good upgrade to get installed ASAP. Next on my list for sure.

those FUSUNO canopies are very nice. They are pre-drilled to fit T-REX 500. And they are opened up at the bottom bigger to allow more air to cool the motor and esc better. Check out the pictures of comparision. The Align stock one is on the left.

And price is 34.99usd.

Each to their own but the stock canopies look better than those imho.
