Where do you get the flight leader starter?

this is what I used prior to the align starter which works great; why no align?
Having owned an Align starter since the day it came out, I can say why it isn't mentioned. Jackhammering, not spinning fast enough, the one way crapping out. For me it wasn't an issue until it gets cold out. I thought maybe the old Outrage 2200 batt I have in it is finally giving up the ghost but I tried a fresh batt and the speed was the same. Also, the one way started to die in fall of 2010 but it was usable. Now I have finally had to order another shaft unit as it barely grabs any more.

The other thing I am doing is building a backup starter. I have had a yellow Sullivan, brand new, laying around. I am going to build a simple 4 cell lipo setup for it. My dead Align starter shaft chucks into the rubber cup just fine. Heck, I hooked up a 3 cell lipo to the Sullivan, the same one I tried in the Align starter and it spun my helicopter noticeably faster. I am thinking a 4 cell lipo will work just fine. I can use this starter when it is cold out and the lipo power sag won't be as big a deal.

Went to a swap meet this weekend and bought a 4s 4000mah lipo for $10 and hooked it to my yellow Sullivan (that I bought in the spring for $10). Duct taped it to the bracket that came with the starter and AWESOMENESS ensued. It spun the crap out of my Rappy yesterday in 25 degree weather. It is possible my Align starter might be a sellable item real quick. I like the compactness of the Align but I love the speed of my frankenstarter which cost me exactly $20 to build. Hmmmm....
