This thing is like an endless email which keeps doing a cyrcle.
Sorry to the red_z06 but this is something useless.

Because I could say how many are called John?
or
How many are using Align stuff?
or
How is painted your heli,how is called your mother,how are you? etc
So please let's have our brains trained by learning stuff from the ones that are a step above us.
If we want to have our brains sleep we will watch TV.

Originally this thread just quantified the ratio of clones to reals. Now it is getting a little deeper, and we are finding out why they are so cheap.

I had my first realization the first time I disassembled a copter x metal tail case and compared it to my authentic v2 tail case. The Align version had little bosses on the inside of each half to align the tubular spacers. This makes holding the spacers in while threading the screws easy. The copter x tail did not have these bosses and the spacers would continually fall out while trying to insert the screws. They looked absolutely identical assembled.

I also found that the tolerance between the flange bearing on the inside of the case of the copter x tail was terrible and allowed the bearing to move inside of the case. The copter x tail worked decent at first but developed even more slop around the bearing until a vibration started which interfered with the gyro enough it would constantly tick around.

I am laughing because of several reasons. All are positive.

There is a subtle and sophisticated level of humor going on here. Your ability to stay on point is amazing. Reading the thread through from start to finish, it is like a ping pong ball bouncing around. The humor can be truly appreciated by someone who has been in this hobby for way too long and tried it all. All of the design, material and operator issues associated with our hobby over the last 23 years were popping into my head as the ping pong ball bounced. Looking back at how many thousands of dollars I have spent, the mental picture of all the broken rotor blades, and the friendships that I have made, made me smile. I love this hobby!

For the last 2 years I have been riding off road motorcycles. I love that too, but it is different. The wrenches are bigger, you need a trailer, it hurts the body more and the pocket less when you crash, and the people are great, but different.

Thanks Again

looks like there is no serious clone factories that do serious job to keep quality and price low enough for people to start into the hobby.

I mean how about a t-rex 600 with battery, motor, esc, servos at about 300usd that is pretty good to fly normal 3d so people can jump from there lama directly to t-rex 600? Am i asking too much?

I think it's a matter of time when there is a serious player enter this untapped market.

just my 0.02
