DITTO!!
When mine went in the first time, I totaled up the parts list at $245+blades, and I was going to just buy another whole kit!
Unfortunately there were none on at the time, but then a day later, the current batch was on there.

I must be seeing something wrong. The links provided had two sides for $95 to $120 (that is about the same as other brands) where are we getting $160. ?

when TT first released the X50B there was a typo in the price listing for the frames. most online stores have changed the price. im assuming there is still one or two out there that hasnt. If you guys are looking for good pricing on X50 parts or raptor parts go to helikraft.com. They are tiawan based company and charge $20 for shipping but thier prices make up for that and the shipping takes no longer than 5 days tops. ive ordered from them on 3 different occasions when ive needed more than just a part or two. if you need one or two parts it doesnt make sense to pay $20 shipping.

Tell me about it John... My last helikraft order is 28 parts ... But well for me it was quite worth it even back in Europe. You can choose cheap slow shipping (that takes long i know) if you are not in hurry.

Just finished my first flight after building the X50 FBL. Lovely kit, seems to me to be of higher quality to all of the Align helis I have owned. It takes some time to lay the electronics out neatly, and although I was a little apprehensive about the Redline 53 it runs perfectly and has not been difficult to tune at all.

I have given up on my FBL TT X50. Haven't been able to track down large vibrations after replacing almost every component on it - including the engine.

Getting rid of it and buying an Align.

I bet if you disengage the Torque Tube the vibs will disappear. Right?

I added an extra bearing in the the TT because of that. Also mine has vibes like an epileptic crack-head if the engine is out of tune.
