i would advise to stay away from nitro 250 and a 450

i beat on my 450 and when it wrecks its back up and running right quick.

a nitro little heli would be a pain in the heiney to wreck and there so squirrley it would happen often

I love my nitros but i wouldnt own a little critter

pretty cool. the motor looks like its one of the old Cox motors. what else is interesting that no one has pointed out is the new 3g unit badged 3G-s. if you look closely there is no seperate control box. everything plugs into the sensor then to the reciever. if that 250 is a real one being made by align there are alot of new things going on there. also apears a larger main gear. pretty cool. i would buy one. but i dont think it would be fbl if i had it.

I don't think it's legit
The images are obviously cad renderings. The engine in the helicopter is a 3D solid model of a Cox TD.010(minus the tank/mount) with some kind of wrap around exhaust manifold. There is no exhaust or carb throttle. I used to fly these engines when I was a kid, and I still have a couple of them. They spun a 3" diameter propellor @30,000+ rpm. Not nearly enough power for a 250 size helicopter. It would have to be at least an .049 size engine.

The new 3Gs fbl unit shown in the pics lead me to beleive that the images came from Align. I hope Align decides to develope this concept. I would be the first one in line to buy it.

I think it is one of those things that looks cool, then you buy it and two weeks later you kick yourself for being so dumb and try and flick it off to some sucker on E-Bay.

Let me know when I can get one lol

You never know, That could just be a test subject engine wise and Align might make their own, anything is possible so don't jump to conclusions.. If you look carefully on the back side of the frame there is a cut out for a throttle servo, I believe there is a servo mounted in the same place on the other side. If you see the full size images to me they do not look like CAD/3D renderings..

As far as renderings go, you can look at these photos and tell me why you think they are renderings.. Look at the servos, wires, and the fingerprints and dust on the glass table.. Also look at the Fiberglass on the canopy

I think its real... (Edit: look at the 2nd pic right under the engine, looks like a starter coupling)

That .15 hanging off the nose would make it (the 450) nose heavy I would think...maybe not.

High Voltage just works better

I don't see anything that suggests a CAD rendering.
I am looking at it on a 52" monitor.

As far as nose heavy....250's are stupid tail heavy stock so.....

I literally never use the word literally right.

Tech3, I don't think the throttle servo is installed in these pics, but good catch on the cutout in the rear of the frame. If there was a servo installed for throttle we would be able to
see the bottom of the servo(frame side spacing is same depth as servo case), and it would be plugged into channel 3 on the rx, which is open in the photos. I do think these are real photos, question is, will it ever make it into production?

How long has the 700 gasser been on the drawing board, and I think it would be easier to design a 90 sized gasser instead of a 250 nitro.

Align is making money hand over fist. I'm sure they've got some time to play around with something like that. Since they do everything in their factory, it is very easy for them to cad and then machine up a part very quickly.

Cool, maybe that TeeDee 010 I bought for $35 a couple of years ago has a future!

Of course you'll need something on the order of 50% nitro to make the little thing run well. A gallon would last a long long time.

Interesting idea, I see nothing in the pics that suggest they are CAD renderings, some people these days don't believe ANY picture they see can be real.

The real small engines have always been finicky when it came to needle valve tuning and holding a setting throughout a flight. I've flown many a lap of control line flying with an 049 that just didn't want to behave. Same goes for single channel RC planes.

wasn't there an .049 designed heli out back in the 90's? Hummingbird or something along those lines?

Lite Machines and the LMH-100, followed by the LMH 110. They were designed around the Cox 049 and 051 motors available at the time.

Those are long gone, but apparently the Lite Machines helis live on in electric versions known as the Lite Machines Corona.

The LMH website seems to be alive, they make little or no mention about hobby-related stuff, but do have a peculiar link showing the LMH-100 and a "Legacy" tab that takes you nowhere on their site.

Good post on the history of LMH above.
