I have been out of the hobby for quite some time and now my son has got me back into it. I was always a TT raptor 90 and 50. I have never had a large electric and looking at the e700v2. Do you guys think that thunder tiger is going to get their American market back up or would I be better off to buy align at this point. I really like the look of the e 700 though.

Personally, nothing else flies like the e700. Mine has been pretty much maintenance free also. Parts fit and finish is another level over align. Nothing like back in the day when raptor was lovingly called "craptor" haha

With the motor you can't just put any motor.
The reason is that the 700 is fairly narrow and a lot of motors are just too wide.
That being said, there is a Scorpion motor, the Nick Maxwell 4235-520kv.
It was designed for the 700. There are others that fit, just can't remember them all.
A lot of folks are using 120 sized ESCs. I use a Castle 120, but I don't do smack 3D. Just sport flying really.
Vortexhobbies is a good place for parts. And, a lot people get parts from Thunder Tiger through ebay.
Of course, you can order straight from Thunder Tiger and they get the parts to you pretty quick.
Also, on a side note. some folks use the Align 700MX motor.
I currently have this one in my E700 and it works well for my style of flying.
The E700 is an awesome heli. You will love it.

AR7200bx is great.

ESC, if you're going to fly hard, 120-amps+

Alternative motor: Hacker A50 V3 Turnado series

High Voltage servos are not a necessity. I run plastic cased MKS BLS servos that use 6V. They're light, fast and brushless.

Thanks for the compliment, the canopy was done up by Mask Pro. They do a very nice job.
