Just sell the stuff you dont need, people will snap your hand off for them!

You'll still end up with a cheaper bare bones kit than the other over priced kits!

Lets look at the combos where there is actually nothing wrong with whats included:

250se, 450 Sport, 450 Pro, 500esp, 600NSP, 600ESP, 700N, 700E.

If any of these dont have enough power for you or are falling apart on you then YOU are doing something wrong, not Align.

60% of the time, it works every time!

Sales , there are alot of new heli guys getting into hobby ,align makes it easy to get started without the guessing and at the same time price point .Cost is low enough where you can get a decent heli that will fly hard 3d and as you gain knowledge they cone out with new items and you upgrade with your skill

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

I had to sweat a lot to sell my leftover 600e gear, which ended up going for peanuts.

I'm a pilot, not a seller...

How is that different any other brand? Any helicopter that is out of date will have low resale value and will be hard to unload. People only want to buy the latest and greatest models.

Imagine that you are a budget hobbyist or a new comer to this hobby, looking at all the various brands wouldnt you gun for Align? With a combo that affordable who wouldnt? I guess that is what Align is targeting in the market.

Align's combo is still cheaper than most brand that doesnt come with a combo.

Just sell the stuff you dont need to others ,I am sure the electronics can be sold in a blink unless you decide to make a huge profit out of it. With the stuff sold the kit alone is only worth a song.

i don't understand the question.

the best i can figure, only the 550 & 600E are offered as combo only. all the other helis are available as kits.

if it ain't broke, break it.

Align combos are very affordable! Why? That's what most people in this hobby wanted for a long time!

I bought a brand new 600esp and had to sell all the electronics NEW in order to get it to work on 8S. Sold everything for half price. Not only I was converted into an Align distributor but I also had to settle for half the street value. What was my advantage in buying a combo, I ask?

I am not against combos. I am against ONLY combos.

Simple solution jack, allow Align to continue to sell combos and take your money elsewhere. There are many other great helicopters offered as bare bones.

Align's business model is selling combos. Why? I think it's because they can get away with it because people will buy them.

My thoughts exactly. Maybe it is time for a move...
