I currently fly evo 50s and thinking about a new 90 project. Looking for input, should I go with EVO 90 or Trex 700?

I don't know how to tell you this and not seem bias. I have had Align and currently own a rex 450. Its fun and I like it for the most part.
When are looking for the differences between Align and Hirobo, you are talking about quality. There is no other way to say it but Hirobo is the best. My best friend flys an Align 700 and I have taken it around the sky for a few laps. I cant speak ill of it because it is nice. I will tell you that what I like about the EVO 90 is that it flies like its on rails. Every command I give it follows through and it’s because of the strict engineering.

We can’t make the decision for you. I would go and see both helicopters close up before I make a decision.

fly safe!

Also, you really need to examine both that have had MANY flights on them with no rebuilds in between. Inherent Hirobo parts quality becomes much more apparent over time. A pretty bling-bling swashplate is worthless if it gets sloppy in less than a season's flying.

Trex or Hirobo
Hey rswamy wats up it's very difficult now days to choose a machine for yourself, there are so many good machines out there and so many machines for diffrent puroses. The Trex 700 has a purpose its a 3d machine for hardcore or novice its cheap to fix and spares are readly available for that machine. Now the question, are you a hardcore 3d pilot or what do you want to do with your chopper.I can tell you that the Hirobo is an awsome helicopter the spares might be a little more expesive here and there but it is really worth it. This helicopter can be a stable slow helicopter with the grace and speed of no other and the nice thing is you can turn it up to do the above average 3d. The quality of the parts are better and the head design is probably the best in the world. If you look real close the Trex 700 is nearly a good copy of the Hirobo head. My man i cant think that you would go wrong with the Hirobo at all. There are many things that you would have to do to get the 700 to fly with the stability and straightnes of the Hirobo.
Just a piece of my mind
Kind regards

Rswamy,
Here you can see how flies Freya- directly from the box, no tuning. Of course before in the film there is a part with Eagle, it is also worth to see.

What I can say about the two brands.. Many guys at our club have Align. It is quite cheep machine, which flies very wide, fast 3d and so on, i have to confess i have never see a good hoovering with it?!. But when I told to some advanced pilot: that Align models flies great ( basing on what I've seen on 3D films) - this person answered me that these are pilots who flies great with align models. With Hirobo it is inverted: Hirobo flies great even when the pilot is mid-advanced. I love it stable hoovering. It is very good made. Aligs seems to be more 'attractive' but.. If you are not looking for carbon and shiny alu - take Evo. You won't regret.

This is what I thing. I have had to write it because hirobo Freya gave what I needed. Before with raptors, gaui, align, I was always looking for something different..

Let's have a look on Trex canopy, without decals it looks like a melted bar of butter.. Align design to me is not such attractive as sport line of Hirobo canopies. Had to said it as an architect/designer : )

Kind regards

Maciej

I have to admit I'm not a hardcore 3D person. I like the way my Evo 50 flies. I like the smooth flying style and that's why I haven't given up my 50s for the Trex 600. Almost all the pilots in my club are Trex pilots. I think I will go for the EVO 90, any recommendations on engine, right now I am thinking YS91SR. As for parts my plan is to learn on my 50s and practice on my 90 when I am comfortable. So I hope not to have too many crashes. Thanks for all your input guys EVO it is.

The YS SR is a super motor for the Evo 90. I will never go back to a OS again after one year with YS. Lots of power.

Why YS is better than OS. I see YS quite common at WC. What are the differences to OS?

HIROBO
When I flew nitro I had a basic Freya. Only mod besides carbon fin set was a metal Hirobo Swashplate. I ran a YS engine. Once the engine and heli were set up I flew a whole year FAI/3D and never had to adjust anything on the heli or engine. I would like to see Hirobo come out with a 500 size or 90 size electric so I can get another Hirobo. The fit and finish IMO is high on the ladder. My 2c

I only need one!

I would like to chime in here.

I own both Evo 50 and T600N and also a Evo 90. Yet, I do not have a T700N.

I would prefer the Evo50 to the T600N because Evo 50 tracks very well, the build is of top notch quality, and the design is sophisticated. Just comparing the tail rotor design of T600N with Evo 50, you will find the huge difference... the T600N tail rotor design is crappy.

Likewise, I believe Evo90 and T700N will end up having the same comparison result.

I've also been looking at the Aurora. It is more expensive but I'm really tempted. What do you guys think Aurora VS EVO 90?

To me Aurora is pretty close to Align 700. Aurora is like 'Shiny chatty peaople happy' like R.E.M sings . To me Hirobo is much more far in technology and solutions. Good alu CNC and lot of carbon is not enough

I have owned a couple of Hirobo machines for some years (sold them recently) and whilst the quality is good, the machines do wear out over time. From what I've seen with the Rex 700, the quality doesn't quite match that of the Hirobo so expect slop to occur faster and parts to need replacing sooner. The main gear especially is prone to stripping teeth. However the availability and cost of TRex 700 parts is much better in my part of the world than Hirobo.

Would I buy an EVO 90 now? Probably not, due to parts availability, the TRex is a more modern machine and flown at the local heli club.

So there are a few more factors to be taken into account. You pays your money and takes your choice... and YMMV

Dyna-x, Knight 503D, Logo 10,
TRex 500, Furion, Gaui EP200

Putting away the jokes. I still think that there is prette similar philosphy at these two brand like Avant & Align, who have a shiny design but not always in pair with durability and quality.
