I would love to see Align turn the new 500X into a nitro! You could run it on an OS37 and it's belt tail drive which means it would be the ultimate beater/fun machine with 7 minute flights (or more if they fitted a bigger tank, not like the tiny NX4 tank!).

I see lots of people loving their stretched NX4 but for me it has some big flaws, 1. It's very tail heavy even stock so stretching it makes it worse. 2. It's torque tube tail drive which makes repairs expensive and a PITA!. 3. Small fuel tank in the wrong place meaning 5-6 minute flights and adding to the tail heavy problem which is made even worse by adding a header tank which is a must if you want more than 5 minutes. 4. It's expensive! (yes all helis are expensive these days but I want Align to bring us out of that rut like they used to do with very affordable helis!).

60% of the time, it works every time!

The OS .37 is discontinued and not even available for consumers, therefore basing a new model on a deleted engine makes the concept a moot point.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

But it's nice to dream. I too would like to see align add a nitro bird in this size.

If still available from rc japan, then the supply issue is not OS, but rather the dark empire of Hobbico/Tower Hobbies.

The 30 nitro market died with the Thinder Tiger Raptor 30 and was replaced by 450 electrics. The .50 class nitro is losing ground quickly.

Bingo.

E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.
