KDE DIRECT ALIGN TREX 700/800 SERIES
FLYBARLESS SYSTEM MOUNT UPGRADE
The new KDE Direct ALIGN TREX 700/800 Series Flybarless System Mount is now available! The new upgrade provides the ideal mounting location for the Flybarless System electronics, with a location protected internal to the carbon frames and centrally-aligned to the helicopter for optimum control. The new design allows for larger-class power systems to be used (HV160A+ ESCs) in the TREX 700/800 helicopters, without the need for canopy modification to achieve proper fit. Check out the Design Presentation and Installation Diagram (PDF) for more assembly details and tips.
FLYBARLESS SYSTEM MOUNT
FOR ALIGN TREX 700/800 SERIES HELICOPTERS
Item Number: AT700-FSM
Installation Diagram: CLICK HERE
Material: Aluminum 6061-T6, ABS Proprietary Copolymer
Models: all ALIGN TREX 700E (V1/V2/DFC), 700N (V1/V2/DFC), and 800 (DFC/Conversion) series.
Note: the Flybarless System Mount provides the ideal mounting location for the Flybarless System electronics, with a location protected internal to the carbon frames and centrally-aligned to the helicopter for optimum control. The new Mount design allows for larger-class power systems to be used (HV160A+ ESCs) in the TREX 700/800 helicopters, without the need for canopy modification to achieve proper fit. In addition, the design uses an anti-vibration, ABS mounting surface for the Flybarless System; supported by a lightweight Aluminum 6061-T6 frame for ultimate strength and Flybarless optimization. The ABS mounting surface is 29.5 mm wide by 34.0 mm long, providing full support of the ALIGN 3GX, Mikado VBAR, BeastX/Spektrum AR7200BX, and other common Flybarless controllers.
