Default My Align 550E PRO DFC 600 head

I purchased this 550 heli damaged and gave it a overhaul -
  • New 600 tail boom & accessories
  • New main & tail blades
  • New black helical & pinion gears
Nearly ready for flight just need a Flybarless system (SK540), Batteries (5000 - 5500mAh) then I'm ready to rock & roll.

Default Dominator 550 bad ass heli

So i started with align 5 years ago and learned to fly, since then, i burned through every boutique brand name 700 in the lands. Well ive come to the conclusion that align helis are very nice, machined very well and fly extremely nice, every bit as good as all the others plus they look sporty and cool. I honestly thinking of selling my protos v2 max for the dominator top 700. I flew the top 700 and i honestly think it blew the blades right off the protos and its lighter.

Default Father's Day Picture

My wife set up a Father's Day visit to the club with our daughter's family where they were kind enough to sit and watch the flying. They got bored after a bit and slipped away to the mall but it was a very nice surprise that I loved. There were more airplane pictures than heli, but they did get one of the son-in-law and I with the 550 in the frame. Sadly, we did not have the buddy box heli setup ready at that time, but Reggie did get to buddy box with one of the plane fliers.

Adding wire wrap. I think it looks better than bare wire and also protects it
