You getting kit wo motor and blades? If you did not buy yet I would suggest get the kit with motor and blades.

The new kit motor is stronger then the align and the kit blades are very good, the kit price considered you get a really cheap motor and cheap blades

Why on negative side? Why not on positive?

So would you run a governor with this Heli? Thinking of the CC 120 and a the new SK540 from Skookum or should I go Hobbywing?

I got the a barebones kit with the 690mm align blades thrown in for $610. Seemed like a pretty good deal so I went with it.

I will be running the gov in the Hawk 120 esc. Lots of guys are using these units at my field and they are very reliable. The gov works fine (equivalent to castle).

Gee, Thanks. Feel dumb now. Not sure how I missed that. Anyhow, greased up and ready for my maiden!

Hey Psych101,

Thanks Regards Marcus.

century rc (they no longer sell the barebones kit with the align blades though):

http://www.century-rc.com/ecs/produc...&sub_kind_id=4

Ask to become a vip member and all their website prices will drop a bit when you sign in.

They also have very poor customer service skills and shipping times are not good. But if you are willing to wait a couple of weeks for them to even ship the kit out the prices are worth it.
