I got a chance to put one of these together and i am throughly impressed with the kit. I'll be posting some big close up photos for everyone to see what i see. I have only really done Raptors and Vario helis so this is a new direction for me.

Here is what comes in the kit.

This is a close up of the painted canopy. Very crisp clean lines, highly polished finish!

The blades are really nice! Balanced and ready to bolt on. high gloss finish too!

Some of the packaging. I really like the fact that most of the bolts you will need for a piece are temp screwed in so you don't have to go searching for the nut,bolt or washer that you need in a big bag of parts!!

Some of the parts needed for the fly bar. Nice finish on all the parts in this kit. Set screws and bolts are where they need to be!

Here you still need to take the bolts out and lock tight them. The kit comes with two types of locktight and some light grease. I still still have some left over from building the kit.

The fly bar paddles are very nice and came in at 18.6g each. Just as nice of a finish as the blades.

A close up look of the mixing arms. The bolts holding the arms to the block were already locktighted. A quick check of all the bolts reviles which ones are in for good and those that are temporarily in. Smooth and slop free!!

The swashplate was smooth and clean. No slop at all. The balls were locktighted in but needed a little more for my likeing so i took them all out and relocktighted them each

There are three bearing block in this kit. Here is the middle and lower blocks. The lower block has a smaller bearing for the main shaft. This supports the bottom of the shaft and the main gear actually sits above the block. You can also see the motor mount. all bolts and screws have socket head washers to spread out the forces of tightening against the carbon frames.

Here you can see where the botom plate fits into the carbon frames. The holes needed to be filed a bit, or the plastic needed to be shaved for them to fit snugly. not alot of ether makes if fit perfectly.

The tail is really nice to work on. I'm used to belts but everything fit the first time. No adjustments needed and everything was smooth. The tail has 1 radial and 1 thrust bearing for each holder. The machining is tight and everything is slop free. I expected some wiggle in the tolerances of the bearings but there was none! The whole thing was put together but needed some locktight.

The other side of the tail. Carbon boom,fins and boom supports really finish off the the kit well. Holes in the carbon are sometimes a little tight but nothing worth wallering out. Blades for the tail have just as nice of a finish as the main blades and paddles. The tail yoke gets a nice set screw to hold it in place and the tail shaft has a recess for the set screw to fit in.

The whole shebang!!! The rods are a little hard to make up but the ball links are stiff and have no real flex. Ball links need some sizing as they are a little tight and squeezing them with pliers doesn't help. The control arms are all one piece with the bearings pre loaded but the balls need locktight. Once you go to install everything, there are small brass washers to go between bearings and bolts. Just enough to keep everything moving freely and not rubbing anything.

The head is just a nice peice of machining!! This is the most slop free head i have ever seen. There is barely any movement in this set up, even with out servos attatched when you grab the fly bar paddles and move the head to see what wiggles!! I was really surprized and cant wait to see it fly!!

I will be gettin the servos,motor,esc and gyro in the near future but i wanted to see how the kit went together. I'm not a 3D guy but i do appreciate a well built heli that can handle big weights and big blades and be able to fly hands off for ever!!! and you all know what i mean. something that doesn't need to be trimmed every time you go fly cause of slop of poor workmanship. This one is looking to cover both!@!@

It is a clone but at the price they are going for its hard to justify spending the extra money for the "ALIGN" logo. I'm more impressed with this heli than I was with my BEST RAPTOR 50!!!

I'll be getting the parts soon to get it in the air and then its on to the new fuse that i will be doing!! I'll have pits up for that one when they get here. The people at RCAerodyne are the best bar none!!!

OK gang, I got the motor and ECS. A little over kill but what the hell!!

The Hyperion motor is really nicely machined. 560 KV, 12 poles, 6mm shaft, can run on 10 or 12s, with a 15 tooth pinion the head speed should be around 1580. Nice scale speed and plenty of run time.

Only catch was the shaft is longer than a standard Align motor so the pinion has to be drilled to eliminate the stop in the end of the pinion. Not a big deal. A 6mm or .240" drill bit works just fine. then a little finishing off with a dremel makes a perfect fit.

The motor mount bolts that come with the kit were too big. But the motor comes with mounting hardware. Only thing it needed was some washers to take up a little space as the mounting holes are for 3mm not 2.5mm. There were some left over from building the kit which I LOVE!!!! EXTRA HARDWARE!!!

And the final real reason that we are all into this hobby.....SCALE FUSALAGES!!!!!

THIS is the 600 size BO-105 in the RED Bull colors!! This thing is SWEEEEHEEEHEEEEEEET! High gloss finish, perfect paint lines, really impressed with the quality. MUCH larger than the 500 size 105 by a long shot! This thing is bigger than my 50 size 500D. I'll be getting more photos soon as i want to get the mechanics flying first......

I sure am glad that you showed a fuselage for that thing. If you started flying a pod and boom I was going to give you a real ration.(after the crap I heard up there!)
