Align still sucks
100% true, Align helicopters are horrible. also Raptors are equally horrible.

Both brands have horrid quality and neither fly properly.

About time we had a 'self building' 'self fixing' free helicopter, that the OEM'S pay us to own.

Next.

Man I wish all the experts that know what helicopters suck got together and built the rest of us one of their own kick ass machines that have no problems. Until then I will just have to fly my never had a problem flies like a demon Align helicopters.

No helicopter is perfect if you did get a perfect one only Bill Gates and a couple of his mates could afford to buy one, realistically most of the main brand helicopters are good value.

I think half of the problems with helis are the cause of the rough as guts owner / builder and nothing to do with the freindly little Chinaman that makes the kit.

Life is like a bath, the longer you stay in it the more wrinkled you get.

as a proud raptor 50v2 owner i just wanted to chime in. from what i learned pumping a fortune into cheap made, small, junk helis trying to learn, i now believe that the raptor is probably one of the most cost effective helis out there. affordable,durable and flyable they beat all the helis i thought i could learn on, no question. i would recommend a raptor 50 to anyone learning and i have yet to outgrow my raptor. actually fixing to trade one of my aligns for another rappy.

fly it like you stole it

I don't really want to get into this... but why not, I got some time to burn while I drink my coffee… LoL. The thing that surprises me is individuals that make a comment about how a product sucks but doesn’t explain as to why. In reference to Align, they fail to understand that it’s all about what’s the best bang for your buck and parts availability. If a customer wants a better product, he or she always has the option to get something else and at the same time, be willing to pay more. For instance, if you think the 600N is garbage… then get the Vibe or equivalent. From what I’m hearing, its far more superior to the 600 in regards to quality. So why doesn’t the Vibe outnumber the 600 at every field and fun fly then? I presume that your average pilot will sacrifice a little quality for other reasons. If they price match the Vibe with the 600N, then that will shift the numbers. Heck… I’ll even buy one. You guys get what I’m saying? My point is.. quality comes with a price tag. I don’t believe Align was competing with all the other brands in regards to holding the highest quality. They gave us what the customer wants… something we can afford. I’m sure in do time they will come up with there flagship heli that is top notch and a price tag to go with it. This will cover the entire spectrum of customers. But again, there will always be that someone who is unhappy. Now, as far as the Rappy.. I never favored a heli that’s composed of mainly plastic. If Align made a heli that’s composed of the same material, I wouldn’t buy it either… just for those of you who already has this wrong impression that I’m an Align lover. In a couple months or so I’m looking into a 90 size ship and the 700 is looking awfully nice.. LoL. All in all guys.. I'm just shootn the $hit. What I do love is this hobby in general. The more rotors we get in the air the better.

Just my taste, I own and fly 3 helis. If i had to put them in a

pecking order. 1 hirobo evo

2 raptor titan

3 600n

But i can not say one of these helis suck,each of the helis

seem to do different things better. The evo seems to fly the

smoothest. The 600n is the snap master, but its hard to fly

and look smooth, not to say its going to fall out of the sky.

The raptor is in the middle for me, it flips and rolls and

just flying fast forward it feels good.

So if im in bash mood i dont care how it looks 600n.

If im in easy mood, evo nice easy good looking flight.

When I want to a mix Raptor is the way to go.......

This is what works for me,I really dont care who wins the

the heli of the week wars. You cant say any of these helis SUCK.
