Align SE case ??????
Was convinced this was a carry case for the heli until I built it
Whats the point in this expensive ally case to fill with your parts ????

We don't know?? There was a post a while back where people were asking align if they could send them back to the factory for a rebate or something.

I read a post a while back that said the reason for it was to cut down on shipping damage.Nick Crego

I use the little case for my Triton Charger, its 12V power supply, batteries and all the adapter cords I've made. It all fits in nice and snug.A helicopter is 10,000 parts spinning rapidly around an oil leak.

Hi,

I have my 2 chargers in there and it works great to lug them around. But it would have been nice if a trex fitted in there.

Expensive alum.. case? haa look again!
the included t-rex case is NOT made out of ALUMINUM... but made out of WOOD and plastic. only metal parts on the case are the hinges and latches to close it up. don't believe me? just pull back a little of the black padding inside to reveal the WOOD....

Yup, it's about $70. I fought buying one for a while, trying to make my own, but ih the end there wasw nothing of the same caliber available for the same price. The Align case is very solid, I love it.

I bought one recently and found that it doesn't fit my SE very well ... boom is a bit long (carbon fibre). Pity, cos it is a really nice case!

Huh, mine fits my SE with the carbon boom just fine, the key is finding the place in the blade's rotation where the tail blades are vertical.Nick Crego

I can see where that expectation comes from. Personally, I expected it to be the one it is, because they had the same one in the XL kit, and the bitching from XL buyers last year was deafening. Nick Crego

The Align case is crap. The aluminum skin separates at the edges. The case looks good, but if you bang it a bit it really show.

Mines been good so far, I've had it for about 3 months, it leaves the house with me every day and gets thrown in the trunk, when it's at home, the dog step on it to use as a stool to look out the window, and no damage so far. I definitely don't baby it. The case still looks good (although I wish that stupid conquer you heart would wear off), and the heli is well protected. I wonder where in the world "Conquer your heart" doesn't sound stupid, I would like to avoid going there in the future. Nick Crego
