well snapped tt gears on heli. Heli spiral out of control and exploded in the air. I kind of saw this coming since I've broken T-Rex gears over the years. what a waste of money.. I've said for years that they should go to a direct drive belt and szabo laughed. garbage...

Wow that sucks. They should just machine the tt gears out of delrin like Synergy. There tt gears are strong. They work perfectly.

they should have been doing that years ago. I figured I'd give the hell a try but all the Trexs I've ever owned seem like toys. I really feel that they need to go to a direct drive belt what else are they going to market as a helicopter?but like I said this isn't the first T-Rex I've snapped TT gears in over the years. that's why I mostly never fly them. the 650 was intriguing me with its size. but I don't know whether to buy parts fix it and sell it or just sell it as crash parts I don't know if it's worth it or not I haven't added anything up yet it's been sitting in the hobby room

This was what concerned me as soon as I realised that the drivetrain had been lifted straight from the 600L Dominator (which itself was taken from the old 600e Pro). The tail drive on those helis already had a reputation for being weak, fitting a higher power motor and larger tail blades was unlikely to improve the situation

The gears are delrin, but they are just too small. The Synergy gears are far bigger. The really stupid thing is all Align needed to do was use the gears off the 700X which are much beefier.

yeah when I got it the gears look small they didn't look like 700 gears I was a little puzzled especially since it's a 650 bladed heli with a 700 power system swinging 2400 head speed is what the heli needs and wants...good job align . and good job Alan . sums up for making this crappy helly period and it's funny he smirked and laughed at me when I told him that they should build direct drive belt .he said oh there will never be one of those as long as I'm with align. said it to me right at ircha.. I laughed and said to myself good luck. someone sat in their own ways. and look you see the product of that this week ass 650 that cost me money

so I'm pulling the servos off of it now. it's been sitting in the hobby room crash for about a week period and of course all the bolts the heads of them are stripping out. such a cheap ass helicopter. if anyone's reading this thread and they're thinking about getting a 650x don't waste your money . let my loss be a lesson and help you out

I'm curious as to how you stripped the TT gears? Have built a few align kits and haven't had any issues with the fasteners or build quality...thanks in advance

well how do you fly? just a sport flyer or really aggressive with alot of reversals? and high headspeeds? if you just tow it around as a sport flyer with normal or low head speeds you probably never going to have a problem. but if you're flying high head speeds and doing hard stops and extreme reversals then you'll start seeing it I have stripped out multiple T-Rex tt gears on all the helis over the years since the beginning. it's not just a line though over the years I've had a lot of problems with JR helicopters century helicopters outrage helicopters. but this is 2020 and this is a brand new helicopter that they should be knowing what's going on with it when the building it

The TT drive gears stripping is a long running issue on 600 Pro and 600L line of helis. If you look in the relevant forum you will see loads of posts about it. KDE even came out with a kit to ease the problem which may have helped a bit, but didn't cure the underlying issue that the gears are just too small. If you fly gentle to moderate then you will be ok, harder flyers could strip the 600 tail gears 'on-demand'.

It was IMHO inevitable when Align re-used the old 600 drivetrain but with bigger motor and bigger tail blades that this would happen.

iheliflyer I watched your last posted video( great flying skills) and I am like probably the other 98% of of pilots who will never even in my dreams fly like that...but I do like high head speeds and flying fast...will wait for more reviews from average pilots. Thanks for the heads up!

well thank you. that video I think I was just playing around anyway but I would be careful of this heli as the other people on this post are saying about the tt gears on it are too small. obviously I found out the hard way on that one

Alan Szabo is not man enough to sort out issues with Align, he is to blame for Aligns issues as he is involved with R&D, he is to blame, how stupid could someone be to use 600 torque tube gears and 550/600 main gear on a heli with 800 motor and 650 blades, they should have used 700 main gear and torque tube gears
