Well, from the consumer standpoint, you would think Align certainly looks to be the most interesting to work with. Huge product line, huge presence, ability to change rapidly, ability to develop rapidly. I mean, of course there are other things but these would seem most important.

Go get 'em Ben

That doesn't necessarily mean you're designing and manufacturing a quality product.

As a consumer, I prefer a quality product over a quantity of product.

But for someone there to help with perfection and development, lots of things being developed quickly and lots of challenges to address, I think this would be more interesting. I'm sure a key element is that the company shows desire to continually improve and Align certainly does. Yeah, there are problems, but they fix them and don't stagnate.

That really depends on how you look at. Being dynamic can also mean that things are rushed to market and no thoroughly tested. What separates the men from the boys is the companies that learn from their mistakes and don't reproduce them in the future. When companies repeat the same problems over and over that's a red flag. I would not be interested in working in such an environment. As a customer, why would I want to pay for a poorly designed product that wasn't thoroughly tested and then have to pay for the fix?

We could all bash Align for something or another. But you have to admit they have transformed RC helis more than any company in history.

Anyway, this thread is about Ben Storick joining Align. It's hard to beat the support from both Mikado and Align as a sponsored pilot. I wish Ben success with his new team.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot...
Dave, it may be prudent to place BladeStrikes on your ignore list. I did and have been happier ever since.

I normally just stay out of stuff like this but not this time.

Dave took the time to explain to everyone how things really work. Which is a lot more than most pilots/ reps would ever do. You ask for the truth, but if a pilot or rep gives it they get blasted. And yes I am a pilot. Dave did nothing wrong and just wanted to reduce the speculation.

Well, besides the 450, I'm not sure what else they've done that I'd consider new or revolutionary.

They certainly do have a large market share and an extensive product line.

They changed the standard for heli size categories from 30-50-90 to 450-600-700.

Revolutionary!

They "Conquered Your Heart".

And the 100 and 250 and 500 and 800
And made FBL affordable
And the 600 and 700 in Nitro AND electric specific designs with commonality of parts.
AND, created income for thousands of hobby shops around the world.

AND NOW, have put together one heck of a pilot lineup!

Soooo, what did you want? Oh yeah...quality. You really need to keep eyes open. Their quality has been increasing pretty dramatically. I watch their tolerances very closely, as I do other manufacturers. There has been change.

100 & 250? Take a 450 and make a smaller version. Not what I consider serious helis, but okay. 800? Vario had some large ships available long before Align had their 800 out.

Affordable FBL? You get what you pay for. I don't see anyone dumping their top of the line FBL unit to use the "affordable" unit.

Income for hobby shops? No doubt, they sell a lot of product. Others have done the same before Align came along. The Raptor made a lot of income for hobby shops also.

Again, nothing revolutionary.

You try it.

Hey, I hear you. There are others making helis for a long time. Lots of fine stuff out there. But, you have to give credit where credit is due. They are very successful, and that does not come easy.

Man, what a way to turn a "congrats" thread to a well deserving young guy into a pile of crap! What's funny is Ben has such a good head on his shoulders he doesn't even comment and just jams on his guitar and goes flying everday, while this BS continues.. Dino, you guys did the right thing.. He will be a great pilot for Align!

From what I have seen from Align as far as gyro's go over time, I don't see it happening any time soon.
