If it is, be careful as the first ones out of manufacturing are grossly over weight and lacking in adherance to scale.

Yep Align

its a bit heavy but not an issue have lots of power. The only thing I dont like you have to use flex cable for tail. The production kit should have less weight, but i really like the weight its a really think fuse and it looks better in person.

Cable driven tail is a plus not a minus. The landing gear struts have the fuse way too close to the ground and contribute to the "Toy" look. Much better off with an Approach Engineering "Whiskey" Super Cobra or a Hirobo. Both of these look something like the 1:1 Super Cobra. The Align just lacks Gravity (Definition = stays on the planet by sucking)

I can't see the pics either. Where can I get one? I've got two 500, one could use a supercobra fuse.

Algin Taiwan website has the Super Cobra available for sale on their web site. It's at $450USD. I want one, but the price held me back for now. Who are Align distributors in the U.S.? maybe it's a litte cheaper in the state???

Since it's pretty new it might be awhile before it hits the dealers here. Any Align dealer here should carry it such as Helidirect or rediheli. There's too many to name.

Actually, it is not a flex type driven tail but a 100% torque tube design which is included. The only negative thing i see on this is the landing skids and pipe which can be replaced or modified. It is a little over 44" long from nose to tail. It retails for $450 which in my opinion is kinda high but i saw it for 27% off at helipross overseas but on backorder.

Here are some pics.
