Does anyone know who their USA Importer is and if they will be carrying Align's line of brushless motors and/or speed controller's?

I would also like to try their brushless motor 2800KV. Their website video which uses it looks impressive!

Thanks,

Michael

Ooo look...
Helihobby now has the 450X on it's front page!
And have you seen the components that they're advertising selling it with?
Their "top of the range" package has Hitec HS50 servos all round, and a 3 cell pack of TP1320s.
Scuse me, but isn't that just begging for stripped servo gears, soggy performance and short duration?

Supplier
Yes he is a supplier and has them in stock. I just wish he would accept credit cards...to make things go faster.

Helihobby is the importer/distributor and I haven't dealt with them yet so I can't say anything good or bad at this time. I am buying this heli and can't wait to try it out.
I will have it in a week or two.

The heli seems inexpensive at this time...I hope for the most part it stays that way so it gets popular. I know where I fly I could prob get alot of people interested in buying one if
it flies great.

Helihobby seems to have a bad rap for some people but I never had a problem with them. In fact, they seem to alwats get my items to me very quickly. I think there great so far.

We just recently received the whole line of Align parts and all the electonics ( brushless motors/ESC's/servos/receivers....) They have the lowest price on all their electonics, I think the 450x will be even more popular than the Zoom!

Nikki,
Just ordered my Trex from you guys 30 minutes ago. I also saw posts all over the place regarding your turn around time, but this week I bit the bullet and placed an order for some Pic parts from your shop and I had everything in two days!

How do the align brushless motors stand up hackers in your opinion?

Outstanding!

Yea there were problems in the past here ( understaffed, many new people , opening new stores ) but its pretty smooth here now, of course there will always be a few people that we can't make happy , but I sure will try! Glad to hear that you got your order nice and quick, I have not had a chance to use the align motor YET (currently using a himaxx 4200 on it ) But i can assure I will be testing out alot of their products soon, and when I do I'll post my thoughts on them. They look fine, and price looks even better but we'll see.

Let us know about the motor and ESC when you try them. Also did you get any of the gyros they sale? How does it look if you did?
I just ordered one from you a few hours ago also.

Bad Rap?
I just wanted to mention that I picked up a Trex 450 CCPM from HeliHobby's online shop (no problems at all), and had the opportunity to visit their storefront in Reseda, CA for some upgrade parts (335's, 4-cell lipo, 35A ESC, metal swashplate and head stuff - glad I did that). Tons of power and great duration. The folks there have been just great to this newbie flier and my new heli flies sweeeeet!

WARNING, WARNING, WARNING!!!
I have had 2 hitec HS50's fail on my Trex rudder control. One during very benign hover where I watched the servo literally separate, dangle, then auger in... The case halves of the HS50's are attached with VERY small small interlocking features. I would suggest going with the HS56's. They have better response and better construction. If you insist on using the HS50's. I would suggest putting a small piece of packing tape across the body joints to prevent inadvertant separation.

Hitec HS50 + superglue
Right on! I had the same problem with my HS50's too... It seems to me that only superglue (and lots of it does the trick. Though opening servo up is a whole different story after that...

In general - I've been quite happy with Hitec H50 servos in performance- / pricewise.

Or you could use the large type shrink tubing and cut it to the length of the servo and shrink her down. If you have to get into the servo - nothing a hobby knife can't take care of.

Second option - Shoe Goo (something like that in name). Or, Goop which Ace Hardware carries. Basically the same stuff as the Shoe Goo. Stays extremely pliable and can be cut with a knife or peeled off to remove - sticks to anything and so far never had it fail for those non-permanent holding situations.

HS50s
I used instant glue on HS50 number 2. I was doing some hand tweaking when it came apart in my hand; fortunately, on the ground this time. The first failure cost my a tail boom and tail rotor housing (3 feet off the deck... I got off cheap), when the case separatated. That's when I gave up and went to the HS56. The super glue is NOT ENOUGH. I would recommend the packing tape if anyone wants to stick with the HS50's.
