I can tell you that I'll be the first to buy one. I hope it will Bind with their T6J(Futaba) and not come with a cheap little transmitter.

Anyway, I have read about it on other forums and rumors say it could come out in a few months after two years of R and D.

It looks amazing... and with 2 cells that is going to be a bad little bird.

Gotta love the mini DFC. How cool.

Couldn't agree more, I hope it is BTF with T6J/T8J. It sucks the 100X doesn't bind and your stuck with the stock transmitter or the iPhone adapter that is horrible. I also hope the canopy is more durable than the 100X. An aluminum carry case would also be a bonus. Hope you are right and the 150 is released sooner than later but I would be willing to wait before sinking money into a bird that will need significant improvements to fly correctly like when the 100S was released -fixed most of the issues when they released the 100X. The 100S should never have been released in my opinion but I've been happy flying the X around the house.

Cool

Not really diigin on the dd tail, how about a TT or a belt.
if Walkera can do it with the V120 and it's a nice tail, I'm sure Align can do it with a 150.
Wonder how it flies compared to the V120 2s and the 130X
Real nice otherwise!

Align needs to make a 900 and quit playing around with dinks. The fastest way to ruin a decent reputation is by making tiny, quirky, helis.

Just saying. I guess the Trex 100 was sort of well recieved. I just don't understand why Align wants to get into the sub-micro class so bad, I guess cause that's where the money is right now with all the newbs like me.

Default TREX 150?

I would be very interested in this helicopter! Looking at Blade 130x's right now. Need something bigger with more power than the brushed MCPX.

The MCPX bl is slightly bigger, and has a lot more power, more powerful than the 130x, and requiring much less maintenance, the 130x is generally a high maintenance heli.
A 130&150 on the other hand perform more like the bigger ones, the MCPX will always fly a bit twitchy.

If its double brushless I will stick with the 130x inless I see one fly and it really out performs my 130x with bigger motor personally I always felt that was the draw back to the mcpx's

That thing is mental, I dont think it will servive a crash with those head speeds though. everything on align is going to be build properly but knowing align its going to be futaba so us spektrum people cant get it and its going to be expensive buti think it will be worth it

2 minutes 14 seconds of actual flight time. I hope it can be tamed down to much lower head speeds to give 4 minutes for us sport flyers.

It does look like it has some sort of flight controller in the back! Is there any new information out there on this yet?

Holy headspeed batman! That's just not hitting a wooden chair and going back in the air!!!!
But I guess we now ave almost a dozen micros that it that mo, so I likes it!
No to te futaba binding though, sorry to disposing. No way they make a 6 channel based oso small a built in base in my mind. Unlike the seperate components in the bigger birds, if it's an all in one I just would think it would be too limiting. Maybe it takes sat of your choice? Binds to futaba or spek with satellite could e feasable. With a 2s power system and lower disc loading I don't think a few grams from a sat would hurt things. Who knows, they went propriatery with that msr clone thing, but there's a world of difference in what I'm willing to fly a fp with and a 6 ch, and I think t hey know that's the sentiment of a lot of people.
Looks good and if they can offer a 250 dfc fir under $300 btf, I'm thinking $239 max..............
Hey, It's missing one crucial Blade feature though..........
Tail wag! Bada boooom!
I'll take one
