So should we start placing bets now how long it will be before ALIGN copies LukeRC's work?
My bet is before the 15th October

Speaking of vario... I have a friend with a vario bell 222 and his one way locks up from time to time... $150 you say? Hum...
I have a Vario Acrobatic that has at least 30 gallons of gas through it. No lockups. This heli weighs 17 lbs

his weights around 14lbs I believe. Not sure what the mechanics is (its a 60 sized though) and he was told the fix was some thinner shim he had to put there... not my bird, I have no clue about what shim he was talking about

Well we'll see how this new deal works. Too soon to tell. It looks very well made. Feels smooth and solid. No play in any direction.

Maybe it's time to start a rumor about it being in version 3....

If the replacement bearings JAGNZ is getting us fail then i for one will just fly it as is. Mines locked up at the moment and i've not noticed any issues beating it around the sky. Ultimately what damage is going to be caused by the on way locking up other than slightly less auto performance (Which is still better than most 50 helis anyway). For the price of the heli i'm certainly not going to spend mega bucks on it, i'll just abuse it until it dies.

My only concern is slippage of the one way. One of my failed units had roller pins falling out of it once I got the main shaft and carrier free of it - no small feat. One ways fail in different ways and can cause a variety of issues but Magnazan is right, often it is of no consequence other than in an auto situation....

I wonder if mine locked up due to me stacking it? Cos it wasn't as hard to get out as yours. Anyway i'll replace it once the new ones get here. Let me know when they arrive.

I sure hope that whatever new solution Align comes up with will be on the light side. I personally hate to add a single oz of weight to a great flying heli unless I absolutely have to.

Light is right!

whatever new solution Align comes up
What a joke this is. Don't take this personal but "new solution?" This is old technology. One way bearings have been used in helis for 30 years. Why isn't the first design right?

The problem is if you want to use a component without following the manufacturers design criteria, you can expect premature failure. Align knew that. Now Align is selling more stuff to us in the form of "new solutions" ????? We are suckers aren't we?

Sorry, I'm not buying it. That's why I went with the non-Align correct way to design a one way hub.

Ok, I edited my post. Are you happy now?

I sure hope that whatever new solution ANYONE comes up with will be on the light side. I personally hate to add a single oz of weight to a great flying heli unless I absolutely have to.

It's all part of the business model. Cheap, cheap, cheap, fast, fast, fast. Cheap to design, cheap to manufacture, cheap parts, first to market, makes $$$! Why should ALIGN spend $$$ doing months testing when paying customer will gladly do it for them?

People need to realize this is serious business ($$$) and for the manufacturers it's all about making money and ALIGN has mastered the art of the continuous revenue stream.
