I was flying, doing a nose first hurricane when all of a sudden it starts doing a nose first loop! i try to hit throttle hold and after that i dont know what happened. it felt like it was either a lockout or like a linkage was broken or something. it went into the tall grass really hard (or atleast thats what it looked like )
all i needed to do was bend the motor mount back to level, and re-inforce the tip/front of the base plate.

purdy luuucky int' it!

The 250 must be pretty tuff. Probably because of the lower mass. Anyone else have comments about its durability and typical crash costs?

I like the lower battery costs for sure.

i was looking at an e-flite batt, it was 800 mah 15c 3s and it was $40!

whereas the align is 850 mah 20c 3s @ $20

Yep. Eflite loves their batteries!

You can get the zippy 800mah 20C 3-cells for around $10 and they are very good according to reports. But then again the 450 size 2200mah packs are only ~$18 each.

When my LHS has them, I have gotten Hyperion 1100 mah packs for mine and my sons. Flight time is 6 minutes for us and only putting back in 600 mah with throttle curves at 95%. My son is running a Scorpion with a 16 tooth pinion and his headspeed is insane! Makes it a little to jumpy in the wind compared to mine.

So far our crashes have been varied. From just a flybar to a broken frame (that one was hard!) But I dont think I have ever spent more than 30-35 bucks to put it back in the air.

Fly it like you stole it!
