Congrats, man! It's never too late. It takes so much more effort and concentration to finish a degree when you're older. Buy yourself a nice graduation present to celebrate your accomplishment.

Thanks! Did I actually say I'm 46? Doh! I'm 44. Anyway yes, it's been a long haul. I started college as a highschool dropout. BS in June, CPA exam roughly a year later and MBA some time after. The hardest part has been adjusting my standard of living. I got into this hobby with a $60 income. I'm at less than half that now. That in itself is hard to do at 44.

Heard from who/where?, just curious. I know Zsabo was over there testing the 450 DFC head. did not hear of a 700E revision, but you never know, ALIGN seems to update/revise parts and kits very often.

Align is working on new 700 with direct drive for the servos no more bell cranks servos will be direct to the swash plate they are testing servos now to see which gears last the longest
The nitro version will be out first and about 2 to 3 months after the electric will be out

LOL! Sounds like a lot of wishful thinking in this thread.

Very happy to hear this. I'm surprised that Align stuck with the bellcrank config for so long. Especially given that the push for reduced parts count and lighter weight has been so intense.
