Supposedly the 550 and 700's were a step up for align in terms of engineering and overall quality. Haven't seen them in person yet.High Voltage just works better

The 700E and 550 are the best quality I've seen from Align. The metal parts have a better finish and the fit/tolerances are far better than any previous Align product.

I've had six different Aign helis. They all fly well. My problem with them is they all fly alike. Fly one and you've flown them all. The only thing that changes is the power (and flight time) and associated quickness from model to model.

The Align 550 is light years better than the 600E. It's more like a 500 that you can see better. The 700E is like a slightly more powerful 700N, but with shorter flight times. The 700E has no appeal for me.

I guess I'm just thoroughly bored with Align! Can't buy another.

Rexxigpilot if your 700E is slightly more powerful than your 700N I would recommend you to recheck connectors for any cold soldering, check batteries, radio settings, etc...
If everiting is perfect, then put the thorttle curve flat to 100% with 14 degrees of pitch. You will be intimidated by the power delivery

Are you kidding!! The 700E is way more powerful than the 700N. With any decent power combo it will blow any N away! I've had two 700N's and I now have three 700E's...very sweet heli's indeed! My lightest weighs 10 lbs. 9.5oz.
I am considering getting a LG 600 SE though. I've never even flown one before. I would use the same power system my lightest 700E has.
Kon Pyro 700-45, Jive 80HV, Voltz 5100 12S 35C batteries, oh and of course V-bar 5.0.

From what I have seen in videos, the 700E is way more powerful than the 700N, but that is only going by videos.When u don't feel like soaring through the air with a plane, beat it into submission w/ a heli!

I suspect that you like to run high head speeds on your 700E's. In that case the E will make more power than the 700N, but you will get short flight times as a result. I've seen a 700E with a 2300 HS. That was ballistic. My comment was based on the same 1900 - 1950 HS for both N and E.

If you like high HS and are considering a Logo, you may want to wait for the Logo 700. It is designed to handle the high HS people are starting to use on 700 class electrics.

If you do this with the 600SE, you may need to upgrade the tail rotor with Quick UK grips at least. Parts like bearings will also wear out much quicker.

I'd still go with the Logo 600 due to lower weight, longer flight time and flexibility. The Logo can easily be made into a 600 or 700 machine by simply changing the blades, boom, belt and boom struts, if you have the proper motor and pinion combo.

I run 1900 and 2000 HS on all my 700 sized heli's unless drag racing.
They have way better power than the n's ever did at the same HS's.

The Logo 600 is a cute heli, but it holds no comparison to the Rex 700.

When working on the Logo, it is kinda like working on a toy, lots of plastic and stuff (which of course is space age according to the fan boi's ) versus when working on the Rex 700, it s like working on one serious machine. They go together so well and precisely its not funny. I was wondering about all the negative reviews on Align after I built and started flying my first 700. I had over a couple hundred flights and never had a single issue with it. My Logos on the other hand, were giving me belt drive problems up the wazoo. Once my Logo 500 crashed on me when one of the frame idle tensioners decided to get eaten and then eat the belt causing a tail failure.

The tube drive is butter smooth on the 700, the metal parts are beefy and meant to take hundreds upon hundreds of flights with ease and built to withstand some gnarly crashes. I've had both, and there just is no comparison, 700N or 700E any day of the week.

Indeed, however I'm on an increased flight time quest just for fun. I really want to see if I can get 6 mins of my kind of flying. The Logo is lighter for some of the reasons stated above. I have three TR 700 E's now and I've had 700N's in the past, so I know about them.

My Logo 600s have been the least maintenance helis I've owned and not just saying that either. I do have a 700E but waiting for some decent weather here to try it out and tune it up. Damn cold north sometimes sux. ...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...
