I would think that most any dealer would order (and probably have it drop-shipped) for you.

Freya is a great machine.

.90
Why would you hate to mention the Align .90? It also seems more expensive.

I don't know about the 700 specifically, but I do have some experience with align, and haven't been happy with the quality of their parts. Lots of guys have 'em and love 'em though, so your call.

Just throwing another idea out there for a quality .90 - the Century Predator.

Good luck.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

+1 on the Freya. My first 90 was a Freya X-Spec. It really opened my eyes as to how enjoyable flying a bigger heli can be. Rock solid. Well designed. VERY low maintenance. Quality parts that fit very well. Excellent support. Something that others have a hard time selling me on. Ya gets what ya pays for....

I also agree with the hirobo way. Quality, longevity and no buyers remorse. From 2000 my friends original freya is still flying with its original os61wc.

Fwiw

Toss up
So i guess its at toss up between the Trex700 le or the Evo.90 but I hate the fact that the Freya is hard to get while the ALign is growing.

I think the reason it's hard to get (although I dont really believe that) is that Align has the market 'buzz' and is cheap and 'good enough'.

The one thing it (Align) isn't is anywhere near as quality as any Hirobo machine.

No dealer is going to sit on inventory they can't move.

Hirobo parts support is superb and if you contact any reasonable dealer like ronlund, I'd be shocked if they couldn't get you a Freya drop shipped to you door in a few days.

having owned a freya for 6 years (and bought used) i treated myself to a new 700 and sold it within 6 months as it was a total pos and the worst, most unreliable heli i've owned
and the freya's still going great
and after the heap i bought a turbulence ,what a machine )
