KDE DIRECT TREX 500 PRO SERIES

The KDE Direct TREX 500 PRO Electric Series continues to grow, with the new release of the highly-requested KDE DIrect TREX 500 PRO Series Flybarless Main Rotor Housing. Encompassing all the market-leading innovations of the current 500 design, the PRO version includes updated geometry to further lower the rotor head towards the center-of-gravity; providing faster/crisper rolls and increased 3D flight response. The PRO version can also be used on the TREX 500E/ESP kits by simply installing the readily-available TREX 500 PRO main shaft (ALIGN part #H50156) to provide the added performance benefits to your current fleet.

And for those looking for additional savings on KDE Direct products, two new kits have been released for the TREX 500 PRO.

FLYBARLESS MAIN ROTOR HOUSING
FOR ALIGN TREX 500 PRO SERIES HELICOPTERS

Item Number: AT500P-MRHFB
Installation Diagram: CLICK HERE

Price: $65.95
Material: Aluminum 6061-T6
Models: all ALIGN TREX 500E PRO and *500E/ESP series (replaces stock Align part #H50148).

*The AT500P-MRHFB design can be used on the 500E/ESP series with the installation of the ALIGN TREX 500PRO Main Shaft, part #H50156.

Note: the Flybarless Main Rotor Housing upgrade encompasses the latest technologies for optimum setup of the flybarless mechanics. The new design incorporates a series of performance enhancements including: (1) direct-mounted washout arms to guarantee true-parallel alignment of the linkage rods and an interaction-free setup to the main shaft. No more hassles with the main shaft clamp and difficult linkage alignment, simply bolt on the washout arms and go fly with and optimal setup every flight. (2) M3 clamp mechanism is built into the upgrade design, providing a solid hold to the main shaft that is truly noticeable in flight with a significant reduction in shaking, bobbing, and other effects evident under hard 3D flights. In addition, the new “PRO” version lowers the rotor head an additional 7.5mm in comparison to the original TREX 500E/ESP design; providing faster/crisper rolls and increased 3D flight response.

Design Notice: to achieve the best possible setup and perfect alignment of the flight mechanics, it is recommended to use the following ALIGN flybarless components with the new design:

Main Shaft: H50156, TREX 500PRO Main Shaft
