HK-450TT PRO V2 Flybarless 3D Torque-Tube Helicopter Kit (Align T-Rex Compat.)
Our most popular HK450PRO helicopter kit now offered in a flybarless torque tube version!
HK-450TT PRO V2 Flybarless CCPM 3D Electric Helicopter Kit (Align T-rex Compatible). Modeled on the famous and proven Align T-Rex 450PRO V2 Flybarless helicopter kit. Take a close look at the head and tail of this awesome machine. It's ultra light, yet rigid design is strong enough for even the most skitzophrenic of 3D helicopter pilots!
When comparing helicopters, carefully look at the tail and head unit. Our 450PRO V2 Flybarless is FULLY 'PRO' and does not use parts from previous models.
*Now featuring an upgraded metal tail slider and tail slider control arm!
Features: • Newly designed low wind resistance flybarless rotor head assembly with reduced distance between rotor head and frame, effectively lowering the CG for better 3D performance. • Single piece integrated design of main bearing block and servo mount. • Single piece integrated design of anti-rotation guide and gyro mount. • Single piece integrated landing gear. • High precision flybarless head system. • Newly designed high resolution swashplate. • Single piece battery mount with integrated canopy mount designed to bring CG closer to disk plane. • Highly rigid frame with single piece carbon side and bottom plates. • Highly efficient shaft driven tail design. • Weighted tail rotor blade grips to repel centripetal forces. • Straight-up in-frame alloy rudder servo mount for improved geometry and better CG. • Newly designed aerodynamic canopy. • Newly designed high strength main blade grips. • Upgraded metal tail slider and tail slider control arm.
Center all of the servos then adjust the linkages between the servos and the swash plate to give you a level swash plate. Then adjust the linkages to the blades with a pitch gauge to give you your desired pitch.
I am just starting heli hobby and want to buy HK450 CCPM 3D Helicopter Kit (Align T-rex Compat.) Ver. 2 for the first fly.
Then I am going to change it for "HK-450TT PRO V2 Flybarless 3D Torque-Tube Helicopter Kit (Align T-Rex Compat.)" or "HK-450GT CCPM 3D Full Alloy Helicopter Kit (Align T-Rex Compat.)"
I know that HK-450GT has carbone frame and dural tail and head. What material is used for HK-450TT PRO`s tail, and head as frame is carbon?
Could you please advise me what does TT and GT stands for?
The TT means Torque Tube, i.e. the tail is shaft driven and is flybarless. The GT's tail is belt driven and it has flybar (don't really know what GT means, but I guess it's not Gran Turismo :-). A belt driven tail takes crashes better than a torque tube one and the parts are cheaper. But it's nicer with flybarless I think, because there are less parts that break and it's easier to setup than the flybar version. You have to get a FBL gyro instead of an ordinary one, but you find them here. HTH
If you are a beginner, dont buy this heli. In the end it will cost a lot of stress and money. I have one , main shaft bended, ok, replaced one with another that i made. Gears not meshing. Overall if this heli price was 1/2 lower, maybe. But with this price, save your nerves and money and buy a Tarrot
This kit is excellent value for money. The new head is smooth and works well. The swash is very good and smooth, The tail has a new type slider on it and mine has no slop, a first on this size of heli, the tail holders seem to have a counter weight system built into them. I am amazed at what you get for the money. The blades that came with mine are good quality and usable.The torque tube seems a good quality unit and the drive is free from friction and hopefully static. All in all I am well pleased with the kit and look forward to getting it in the air.
got this today, it is such a difference to my HK450 V2, looks ace. Te screws are a lot better than on the v2 models. The FBL head looks also better than the one I have for my v2 but I did not fly it yet.
I'd prefer if they would include a glass fibre canopy but will just get one with my next order.

Finished the kit assembly and have now flown around 15 flights, sport flight and a lot of flips/inverted/rainbows/loose tictocs/punchouts etc
Quality overall is pretty nice and looks great in black, one carbon frame half is rattier than the other (as usual with hk) but the mechanics of the frame, head and most of the tail are really solid. Head is rigid with no slop and feels nice and high quality. The all metal tail slider mech is a nice touch although the one problem I've encountered so far is that the brass tail slide bushing broke in half during the first test hover meaning the tail control arms weren't in contact with the slider anymore. Lost tail control in a low hover because of this so watch out. Never had this problem on other clone 450 tails so hopefully it's just my particular part that was a dud. Other than that the heli is great and flies insane with the following loadout.
Tarot/HK ZYX 3axis flybarless controller
TP 450-Size 2415-06T Brushless Heli Motor 4400kv get this motor it's awesome (13t pinion = insane headspeed power no bogging at all at 12 degs pitch)
Hitec HS-65MG on cyclic (very nice, smooth and powerful although corona 919MGs would work as well for a lot less)
HGD digital 261HB for tail

the quality is amazing. the head has absolutely zero slop in it, is very rigid, and smooth moving. i can tell it will be great for 3D. i still need to check for WARP in the gears but the tail gears came slightly warped, a few teeth are stripped at the root and is not smooth at all. yours may come without it bent like that, but the hk helicopters usually just need align gears and youre good. the TT gears are usually soft and would not recommend flying if they dont seem in perfect shape. to be honest, i did not like the 450 pro i got last year but this one looks like a step up. will be using my zyx and nano techs!
- The carbon fibre frame is a little bit rough on the edges. Need a bit of sanding. Appear not as well made as HK450 V2 frame. - The flybarless head looks very well made. The swashplate is very good, tight tolerance, not as loose as V2 swashplate. - Torque tube tail end is good too. Can't wait to fly it !!
