That does not look durably and I am sure it will be more than the original price as the 100

E-flite have nothing to worry about, looking at it , it does not look lighter than the mcpx and I bet it will be more expensive. Also you still wont be able to bind it with your own tx and align basic tx won't cut it

Nice one. It may look less durable etc.. but if performance is closer to "big2 CP heli, I'd rather have this one than mcpx.

I'll probably end up with both anyway.

But I don't agree with this at all. Especially since we haven't flown both birds.

Just a bit of computer graphics for exult?

I would expect at least some real pictures and videos, hoping not to see an mCP X asleep, as is the video of the t-rex 100 compared to the mSR

Don't be making fun of my thread.

The Align version will suffer due to weight, having to use a POS Align TX, and 3G.

It's such a predictable move: Throw together some CG illustrations and then post them on Facebook with the ambiguous "in processing" as a shameless attempt to freeze the market and slow the mCPX's momentum.

They're only fooling the fools.

Align is only just now getting the regular 100 into people's hands in the US, and after how many months of hype?

To all who are getting really excited and proclaiming "Atta boy, Align, way to stick it to EFlite!," I say, good luck with your wishful thinking chasing that rainbow. This product is pure vapor at the moment. Nobody will see this thing for real until Christmas at the earliest.

By then, I will have mastered my mCPX and moved on to the Blade 450.

I don't mean to be so dense, but does the 3G system mean that this bird is CP instead of FP?

As long as it is Align, I'll buy it! Align is clearly the best.

I'm not supporting Align or eFlite. Just wanted to underline that all people complaining that the 100 was not cp and saying they were going with mcpx should now, at least, reconsider their decision.

BTW, I have a Futaba and can't bind mcpx either

I'm not very familiar with the matter, but can the t-rex100 be paired with Futaba standard?

If not you are still forced to buy another radio with Align micro heli, whereas, with E-flite, you can buy a Spektrum module and you can use your beautilul radio with all the HH airplanes and helicopters.
