Got any proof that this will be the case with the 700? Or are you just making assumptions?

Has any other Align helicopter been different? Just curious....

Nope, but if you are all going to make assumptions about something you havent even laid hands on yet, then be my guest.

Past performance can be used as a reliable source to predict future results. It's used in finances all the time and just about everything else in life.

Of course, that comment is not exclusive to Align. All manufacturers past performance in a variety of areas can be a good indicator of future results.

Have you seen the Aurora fly? It looks damn good to me. MA is still running a lot of not changed parts from many years ago because they don't need to be updated. Does the Stratus and now the Bandit with these parts fly good? It sure looks to be one of the best performing helis out there with Nick Maxwell or Bobby Watts and other newcomers flying them. Do they need to be updated because they are an old design? A heli is the sum of the parts and from what I have seen there are really no bad flying 90 sized helis flying including the big Raptors, look what Jared and others can do with that "old design". To say old design... I don't think that has anything to do with it, look how much every heli looks like a Schluter. The apple has not fallen far from the tree for any heli has it?

I think that there have been many new helis over the last 4 years that were great on the design CAD program, but flying them is really what determines a good design or not, how they fly is what separates a good design from a bad one. Old and new.... that is hard to equate to a heli without flying it for me. No matter when a heli is designed, it either flys good or it does not for each individual that flys it.

I agree!

Man, it would be nice for Alan Szabo Jr. to give ALL of us an HONEST flight report!!! Of course that will never happen now that he wears an "Align" t-shirt!
