Align new line of EFL Pro's and E Pro's Helis:

-Successful and truly Pro kits
-Happy Customers
-FLY GREAT and BETTER from their predecessors
-Good quality
-Easy building and nice fit
-Nice looking
-Good gear included that work as intended
-Affordable
-Impressive performance since day one with what's included in the kit.

and I still read more and more of the above.

Of course, there have been some who have not been that lucky with them and have had their problems and mishaps that shouldn't be overlooked nor ignored.

Agreed. The 500efl was much better in quality out of the box compared top the 450pro 3gx. However, notice the price creep on align kits? Who would've thought we would be paying almost $800 for an align 500 class heli stock?

Yes - it appears Align's prices are creeping up a bit but still totally worth it considering all you get.

I am very impressed with the 500 Pro!!

yep, fit and finish is getting better, so that equals cost. sometimes, and I do mean sometimes, you get what you pay for. In the case of the new 500efl and 600efl PRO series this rings true. I am hoping they redesign the 700N. I have never really owned a nitro, but if a new 700N V2 emerges this winter I will probably grab one.
