You dont see them on here crying and trash talking other helis
I didn't cry or trash talk other helis, just pointed out the facts. You don't hear them trash talking other people either, yet you do that just fine yourself. Grow up dude.

Someday a guy will come along and fly for MA or Synergyand beat everyone and all you guys will think that MA and Synergy helis are the best. How pathetic. Who cares who can beat who, just because Lukas won the 3D masters last year DOES NOT mean that Align is better then any other specific heli. These threads are hilarious because they always end up the same.

In all fairness
JAGNZs posts here (on RR) have helped me alot.
AND
He is way over the top with Align. But thats cool, just take it into account.

For most of us, with age our skin grows thicker. Our minds a bit wiser and our mouths shut more often.

Guess Im getting old but clearly not that old

Where did I say that? I said it's the pilot AND the heli. Look, I happen to think that Align presents great value in a heli, so what, it's just my OPINION, nothing more, nothing less. Oh and BTW I never stick with just ONE brand for very long.

I am looking at the K3D and Atom right now in fact!

It's all about value and flight performance for me - oh and new toys.

So if someone only has enough money to keep up on a raptor how are you helping them cause all you do is trash talk it.scaring them away is not helping..

Admit it folks, at the end of the day what that class of guys flys AND WINS with has much more to do with business than ANYTHING else.

I disagree with your assessment that I trash talk the Raptor, that's all. I just don't have rose coloured glasses on like you do and I point out it's strong AND weak points (hell, every Helicopter has them) as I see them. I have owned Raptors so I feel qualified to do so.

Again, these are only my opinions anyway, so who cares right? As you like to point out, I'm no Pro anyway, so take it with a grain of salt. BUT, I bet my skills mirror a lot of guys so is my experience more applicable or is Colin's? It begs the question doesn't it?

Every post of yours sounds like an angry rant. Try leaving the emotion out of it for a change. They're just toy helicopters after all.

Last I looked, My MA , TT, and ALign Helis do not go after each others ass's at night. They live happily next to each other,......never really knowing who is going to get the attention.

Now if you had to start a thread.....

One heli only???? Which?

THAT would be good. Oh wait,.....copy and paste everyones post's from here to there.....LOL.

My Raptor will be able to be found in my possesion ten years from now....the rest....only time will tell.

Why Hover a Yak, when a Heli does it better?

I don't fly for Align (wish I was good enough for that actually). I fly for myself and I pay retail for everything I buy. Again, I disagree with you, I don't trash talk - those are YOUR words, not mine. If anyone says ANYTHING negative about the Raptor, you say they are trash talking.

Oh, and in case you missed my other posts, I always watch the TT forums to see what they have in the works. I would love to see a new line from TT as I am sure it would be a nice evolution from the Raptor series...

BTW - you are a WAY more rabid and defensive fan of the Raptors than I am of any Align heli - that much I think is clear. For you Raptor = GOD, Align = inferior crap. You have NOTHING good to say about Align helis, I have many good things to say about the Raptor. Now who's biased?

I'm done with this thread, I've said my piece. I'll let you get back to your PEOPLE bashing 450...

I think we should just all fly what we like. When giving someone honest pros and cons about the different helis it will still turn into an arguement. I think we (or some of us) have been cooped up too long with no flying! Winter sucks man!

Because there are much better choices now which are cheaper to keep up as you say,and a side benefit is they fly better also.
The original question is what happened to the raptor, well better and cheaper heli's are now available now so you dont see them much anymore.

Hard core cheerleaders and hard core bashers are just like diving scores.

Always throw out the high and low score.

For good advise to be heard and taken it needs to be balanced.

The view here is anything BUT.

Have a good day guys

Really,I allways tell someone they should get a vibe,raptor or trex and I allways let them know the cost of repairs so they can make there own mind up cause there all good helis.I dont tell people there heli is junk like someone ealse.Like I said in one of my other post,if Align comes down on the price of there frames i'll be more than happy to buy one but till then im not paying $130.00 + just for a set of frames.Thats the only problem I have with Align.
BTW,as for toys,thats somthing you buy at toys-r-us or kmart and toss in the trash in a few weeks .

Just wanted to say that I got a very cool PM from FlyingHigh450 and we cleared the air. Nice gesture and I respect that.

I hope everyone has fun flying what they like/own!
