The Align T-REX 450 Sport is a terrific, well-supported copter that will satisfy trained beginners and advanced pilots. The Super Combo package includes all but the transmitter, receiver, batteries, and blade pitch gauge. The comprehensive manual advises that you rebuild the pre-assembled parts, checking alignment, using thread-locker on all screws and bolts, and lubricating where required.

The machined aluminum, carbon fiber, and plastic parts ensure a rigid, stable airframe capable of precise 3D aerobatics. The electronics (servos, speed control, brushless motor, and gyro) are perfectly suited to the copter, so most pilots won’t want to upgrade. Simulator training or prior experience is highly recommended before flying.
