Align Trex 100S Review


You're probably familiar with Align's bigger helicopters, but the T-rex 100s is Align's first entry into the micro helicopter market - one which, arguably, the E-Flite Blade series dominates. The Align T-rex 100s is a fixed pitch micro helicopter with some interesting bells and whistles.

Align offers both a combo and a super combo. The difference between the Super Combo and the Combo is that the Super Combo comes with 4 Align branded rechargeable nimh batteries for the included transmitter and the 2 port Align CH100 Lipo charger for the batteries.

The first thing you'll notice is the packaging,the heli comes un-assembled - which means the head isn't attached and the canopy isn't installed. It is typical Align style, it's very nicely designed with embossing, silver print, die cut logo cardboard inserts, a vacuum formed tray and disposable slip case for the transmitter.

The front of the box for the Super Combo shows most everything included with the kit. From left to right, the 2.4Ghz transmitter, helicopter, dual battery charger with two 1S 150mah lipos and 4 Align branded nimh AA rechargeables for the transmitter. Also included but not pictured is the flight sim software, the screwdriver and the spart parts bag.

Open the box and there's two more boxes - the left one contains the heli, the right contains the transmitter.

The transmitter box, notice the nice die-cut Align logo on the cardboard insert. (Yep, we're reaching here.) This box contains the flight simulator software, the batteries, the dual lip charger, the simulator usb cable and the transmitter.

The heli box with a silver embossed Align logo. This one contains the heli, the two 1S 150mah lipos, the screwdriver, the canopy and the spare parts bag.

Once we were done checking out the packaging, it was time to start digging into everything. A quick browse of the manual told us about a few features that you wouldn't probably notice.

The 100s transmitter has a "simulator" port on the back for use with the included flight simulator, but I prefer to fly with Phoenix, so I got to wondering. The transmitter has no control switches, so you've got no idle up or throttle cut, but everything else works great.

Basically if you're an Align fan-boy, it's an ideal heli, if you don't care about brand, you can also go for other similar helis.
