Plastic inserts? Does that mean they are replaceable?

OK here goes I've had a chance to fly the Aelous some more to see how well it flies. I don't have any videos to show except some pics on my Heli stand. I think the copter is built very well has all the basics and more the key features that I like is how easy the kit goes together and the parts count is low the parts fit really well, I love how narrow the frame are and the nothes it has for the main mast and fan hub the fit is perfect. As for how it flies it's stable and agile it's and really smooth. I don't have any info for it's release and who will carry it but it should be out soon. This will be my 50 machine from now on. They are quite a few 50 size heli's out there
can't say I've flown them all but I like this one the best so far.

I think the replaceable plastic is a great idea. That way you can stay plastic and if you do strip, you can replace the threaded portion.

copy,,
why do you guys use the word "copy", the mixers have to be mounted somewhere,, the Pantera head is pretty much the same head yet it was flying before Align's was, and hasn't Hirobo made a head much the same for year and years and years, Align was not the first to have their Mixers on the Seesaw !!
I mean Mercedes Bends came first but you wouldn't say Ford copied them because their cars have seats and a steering wheel in them..
I really dont undertand why some people here make a big deal if the heli is a copy or clone.............

I dont care if the heli is 100% copy! The only thing I worry and care is my pocket and is the pri$e is good, I will get one.

Oh yeah for sure, am waiting on the TT and carbon frames for mine, I't a very nice copter one of the most unique features it has is the bearing block above the clutch bell my Aurora doesn't even have that it really help with a good alignment between the engine and clutch, keep us posted on the build.

this model's rotor head and swash are essentially a carbon copy of the Align Trex 600 head. While I don't have a T600 here to compair part for part I do have Align spindles, main shafts and flybar, they are identical in size and can be used in place of AHF branded parts if needed.

On appearances, I believe the tail output shaft is identical as well, along with several other parts.

My model does use plastic inserts. I think this is a good thing since you'll never snap a screw off in one. You just have to tighten it carefully on install. They also save a bit of weight over aluminum counerparts. I checked them after my first flight and a few just needed slight snugging. I was very carefull on my build to not over-tighten them so I erred on the side of caution.

so the outrage g5 a carbon copy of 450se v2 .. JK

i saw and test fly this heli inperson LV funfly (however, the motor install in the model i fly was bad tuned / has little power). it seem to be the lightest 50 size. the frame very narrow, servos/electronic 1 piece mount...the head seem to be align. moreover/the model i test fly in Vegas has torque tube tail/full metal head. positive all there upgrade will avaible soon.

From the looks of the canopy and how sleek it is, it should piro flip very well. Sharp canopy, very nice.
