Default TAROT 450 PRO V2 FBL or ALZ RC 450 PRO V2 FBL??

Hi to all of you people!

Honestly I want to know which of these "clones" of the mentioned in this title thread is better in quality and more equal to the ORIGINAL TREX 450 PRO v2 FBL...
I know ALIGN is ALIGN everytime...but....there is a but...
So please with your personal experience (from one who has built a kit of these two helis...) which is the best?? For the flying result I already saw the massive video presence in youtube...so I know HOW they fly.. My question is about QUALITY....PRECISION...RELIABILITY...

I think many reading this will be interested by the replies.Thank you very much.

I have a Tarot. The quality is pretty good. I'm happy with the quality of the bearings, alum parts, and bolts are ok I haven't stripped any.
The bearings aren't of the highest quality but they have worked well for me. Still using them after over 50 flights.
I did replace the torque tube and dampeners w/ Align and KBDD parts right away. TT had a curve to it.
I bought the kit and used my own choices for electronics. So I don't know about their electronics.
The canopy had a crack in it near the rear. I repaired it and You can't see it now.
The stock blades flew better than the HK yellow and black, at least before I used them to try and dig a hole in my yard. Thunder Power or Edge maybe for my next purchase. Also playing with the idea of getting the 3d Pro 335mm blades to test out.
The tail has the same geometry as an Align. I did Finless Bob's grip flip mod to get the tail slide closer to center. And did a rate mode set up. Holds perfectly with MKS8910A+ and BeastX.
Some replace all the shafts with Align parts. I waited until after I crashed it.
No regrets here. Like all kits disassemble everything and rebuild properly with lock tite where required.

Thank god for the search button. I was thinking the same exact thing. I wanna get a 450 clone for a scale project. I was worried with the clones and how well the Align compatibility was.

So basically everyone would say Tarot has the best compatibility? What about with the flybar version? I know. I know. I'm beating a dead horse here. I just don't wanna drop a whole paycheck on this project and find out down the road that the compatibility is jacked up.

i bought the tarot 450 pro fbl. so far its amazing, the tail is actually just as good as align and the bearing wont blow apart on you mid flight. i would replace the TT and boom for now because they always come bent.

@ Klaus,

ALZRC have bad parts:

Torque tube front gear
Torque tube rear gear
Metal tail holder has slop
Tail boom mount - Front gear has slop if inserted
Main shaft and Feathering shaft - easily bent in a crash
Swashplate - smooth but has a little slop just like an Align swashplate

I did replace all these parts with Align except swashplate (i used tarot swashplate)
