For the past year or so I have been flying two Align's 600n. The reason is because I can learn on it, bash it around without worrying to much about buying parts after a crash. It does the job. Parts on it aren't the quality of a MA, especially the bearings.

I was going to get an Align 700, then I realized I have a 1999 Ma 60-SE sitting around waiting to be flown, with a lot of extra parts in storage. When I first started, I had a MA standard that I actually flew for years before I seriously put it into the ground. This heli needed nothing unless I crashed it. The parts are of high quality.

I do like the Align for learning but I can't see buying a 700 when I have the SE sitting around.

The 3D I have learned well with the Align is what I will do with the SE.

Fly it! There is nothing wrong with the SE. Sure, it's not CCPM, but it will do anything you want and when you are ready, you can get a Fury 55 or Furion 6.

Back in those days (SE days) a lot of guys were buying Raptor 30's to learn 3D on. You could bash one of those in and only cost you $100 or less to get it back into the air.

How about some pictures of your "new" treasure? I like to see the "old" MA birds.

I have tested almost everything. My first helicopter was a Kyosho 60 in 1995. My second bought it next year and was the X-cell Pro .I converted to Pro 2 K and i used that since 2004 and all flights with this heli, was F3C. Just 2 weeks ago i desided to fly it again. When i hovered it again i could't belive how stable was.
I went back home i cleaned it up and i will keep flying it every weekend.

I haven't been on RR for a week or so. I'll get some pictures up of the SE. I should get some pictures up of my friend's xcell 60 with the 2 tail. He won the 93 novice nats with it. He's a perfectionist with everything, especially his own custom paint jobs.
