No worries, Vertico. The aftermarket is going to jump on this guy big time. I bet Fusuno and Canomod are already busy making canopies for this heli.

Competition is good, and this heli is going to eat business away from Blade and Walkera if it performs as it should. Time will tell, but I'm very tempted to get one ASAP.

In the video, Alan Szabo has a DX18, and it looks like a spektrum satt under the front chin spot

Now if it Binds to Spektrum without issue & it fly's without requiring aftermarket parts right out of the box, then count me in Align

I'm still having a lot of fun with my Trex 250 DFC Plus!

Like the fact it uses proper servos, brushless tail too. If its compatible with my 8FG I'm having one.

You can see from the photo it has a satellite receiver on it for you Spektrum guys. Can't see a pin arrangement for use of a futaba receiver though

FHSS means you'll have to sell the 8FG and pick up a 14SG.....just like me

Just watched the newest video. Seems pretty awesome. Its like they are watching the and putting new vids up as they can. Great way to build hype. I don't mind the canopy because you can always order a different option. Really looking forward to this heli. I'm not buying any more helicopters until this one comes out. Just when I thought I would never buy an Align product again, this is changing my mind. I was about to buy a Walkera v120 again, but never wanted to buy a 130x again, this is perfect for what I need.

I think Align has new hit with this little guy. Second test flight seals the deal for me. I'll wait for reviews before pulling the trigger. I think this is the real Blade 130X killer!
Now I'm impressed! No wag at all in this video. When can I get one???

People thought I was crazy when I considered converting my 130X's tail to a direct drive brushless setup... Hmmm, maybe not so crazy after all!

Maybe we will have the option of brusless tail or CP tail on the Brushless motor.

I bet we see a Lynx 180 stretch kit almost immediately.

I am still on the shelf about this heli, however if that 4th port is for a tail servo on an optional TT tail setup then I am definately getting one....or more.

I'm pretty sure this thing doesn't use 150mm blades. We're gonna need a Lynx 150 stretch kit!!

Yea. 150 specifies the motor size not the blade size. Just like the Trex 450 uses 325mm and the newer dominator use 360mm blades.
