600N UK availability ?
Hi,

Does anybody know when the 600N will be readily available in the UK without having to rush for first batches etc.

As I understand it there were some small problems with the 600E (swash plate was one). Have the problems all been sorted in the "E".

Can anybody foresee problems with the "N" with regard vibration and other problems because it is a new model.

Align have a history for V2, V3 & V4 versions being made soon after the original.

Somebody told me the "E" frames are very expensive, is the "N"s as well? All other bits are cheaper that TT, so I'm told??

Thanks

who knows when more will appear in uk, i wouldn't bank on getting one this month unless you have pre ordered already, even then might be tight.

the frame on the nitro is 48 quid ish per side plus 25 for the base plate.

rest of the spares are cheap.

cheers

Hi

The 600N has gone from existing only in CAD at the start of the year to hitting the market by 4 months later so Align have moved very quickly on this indeed.
However it is one of the most antisapated models ever so demand is amazingly high (I know how many back orders Align have for it!) and they have had supply problems with a few parts because of this demand.
The models are coming though but in limited quantitiies, the good news is the supply can only improve from now on.

I think what your trying to say is Align have a history of rapidly developing and inproving their products, I don't see anything wrong with that, they wouldn't have grabbed the market as strongly if they hadn't.

Cheers

Yes Bob, this is what I ment.

Fast Development is a good thing. I just don't want to be one of the people that has a swash come apart or tail grips letting go due to bad glue and bolts, as in the 450 SE!

I have been told that Align still had/have swash problems in the 600"E".

It may be worth sitting it out for a few months and see how it goes. If there are problems, the V2 will be out very soon at this point and should then be spot on.

I am very cautious of new models now because of what happen to me at the Vario flight line last year with my Knight, and my V1 450 SE.

In my opinion, manufactures can't be trusted to get things correct and right first time. Shops will also happily sell things they know have problems. When we are talking about models that can EASILY kill you, I want to make sure its as good as it can be from the start.

Hi

Another small batch left Align today heading for Align UK and should be here on Tuesday, it is not big enough to cover all back orders but should make a few happy.

We are pushing Align as hard as we can and they are working hard to get kits out the door as fast as they can, just hang in there, it's very worth the wait.

Cheers
Bob

Hi,

a little remark, when i opened the box i was looking for the new carbon heck blades. But no, Align provided me with the old black carbon heck blades.
