Has anyone heard of the align 50 hyper engine? There is this guy selling a T-rex 600 pro kit along with an align 50 Hyper engine on rcuniverse. I have done a search on google but it seems only a few things pop up from overseas.

Yep, just a repacked OS. Though I dont think they import it in the States so it probably comes with no warranty support.

I know that it is an O.S. engine. Align will be offering them here in the U.S. probably before the end of the year, basically when the O.S. contract runs out with Great Planes.

I don't really understand the fascination with the Align engine. In Taiwan it sells for $200. That's the retail price of a Hyper here. Judging from Align's customer service record I wouldn't expect warranty issues to be handled as well as Hobby Services. Add to that the fact you can get a new Hyper for $180 shipped I don't see the appeal of the Align engine.

Do you get a free set of Align "B" blades with every purchase?

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

I'd say once it hits the US it will be cheaper than the OS Hyper. And even if not, it WILL be cheaper once Align start doing their 'bundles' including the engine. Then the engine discount can be 'hidden' in the bundle discount without it seeming like they are undercutting OS....
