The other day I broke the "U" holder from the tail hit the ground first. For some reason this unit is not listed in Align's Website as a replacement part. I can't find a replacement unit from my fleet of helis (different brands). Any comments

After a boom strike, I had the exact same problem.

My LHS called Align. Apparently, Align forgot to put that part number on the BOM. Because of this mixup, they don't have the spare parts, nor do they have a way to order any of the parts.

Your best option is to fine someone who has a kit that they are "parting out", that is what I did. It took me one month to find the part.

Good luck

Well. Guess I have to make my own for now. Looks like you & I are the only ones ruined that particular part.

I guess you could try getting one that fits the Lepton. Try HeliDirect for a metal one. It may not be exact but it'll be close.

We haven't seen Colonel Angus around these parts for years!

Looks like Align fixed the problem but changing the carbon fins from H50031 to H50031-1 which includes the holder. I purchased several packs of H50031 a while ago, so now, I have several bags of H50031 without the holder. Bad, bad, and bad.

The Lepton and HDX boom won't fit. It is 1mm smaller than the Trex-500 and the orientation of the tail boom screws are different. I know because I bought both of them trying to find a solution.
