Hi,

I made a post about wanting a T-REX 100 a day or two ago and got a reply that a flybarless version is probably in the pipeline. So I did a little googling and it turns out to be true!

Here is the link to some leaked images:

http://www.rcheliresource.com/breaking-align-trex-100-3g-pics-revealed/

And a pic (saved from the above link):





So I guess I'm going to wait for this flybarless version to come out.

Just wanted to make this post so that if anyone is going to go out to buy a T-REX 100, you should be aware that you can wait a bit and get a much superior model. Rolling Eyes

That is good news.

camoflight, as per your other post asking weather the transmitter will be interchangeable with other brand, I'm not so sure that's possible with the version currently on the market. The thing is, the first version is fixed pitch - albeit adjustable manually - and that really doesn't give it much reason to require very advanced transmitter. But if the new version is flybarless, then there is really a good chance that align will have to make it bind-and-fly the way e-flite does because the programming abilities of higher-end radios will surely come handy then.

Looks like I'll be needing to make room in "the hanger" for another micro heli. That will make it an even 10, from Blade MCX up to T-Rex 500. Rolling Eyes

I'm really surprised that a T-Rex would have a tail motor! I mean they are supposed to be the best of the best?

I think a tail motor is the only option on a sub-micro heli. Just not enough room for a belt, plus it would weigh too much. Torque tube maybe, but would you really like having to replace microscopic gears every time the tail rotor makes contact with something.
If my Blade MSR had a TT I'd be up to my ears in broken tail drive parts by now. The tail motor on it is original and holds well, ditto for the tail on the mCP X. It all depends on how good the gyro is really.
If you can learn to live with the sound of a swarm of angry bees swarming around Laughing , then a tail motor isn't all that bad for sub-micros. Wouldn't stand for one on my Rex250, or even a Blade SR if I was to get one.

My Novus 125 has a torque tube and I am on my 3rd set of tail blades, but no stripped gears yet.. They are tougher then I would have thought..

I stand corrected then, thanks for the info Crash. That being the case, Align needs to match that along with being FBL, it needs to be bind N fly, come up with a better charging method then what's on the 100 now, and some shiny blinking lights would be nice too Cool
