Thumbs down Align T Rex 600E DFC failed first time out

Hello Align,

I recently purchased a T Rex 600 E Pro DFC to compliment my collection of Helicopters (I have the Trex 500, Trex 550 DFC, Trex 600N). My brand new 600E Pro was maiden flight today and after 4mins gentle sport flying the one way bearing failed and I lost all power to the Helicopter. I attempted a hasty autorotation but the heli has suffered substatial damage, on inspecting the drive system it's obvious that the oneway bearing has failed with all the needle rollers stuck back in the cage.

I was planning to purchase a Trex 700 in March next year but this experience has made me stop and reconsider my next purchase.

I am very upset that my brand new $980 helicopter is now worthless because of a defective bearing, what do you propose to do to fix my problem?

Best Regards

I wish I had at least I'd be able to still have confidence in the Align product, as it stands now I have no confidence in their Quality.
Thanks for your comment tho.
