The worst I ever owned was a Trex600. Couldn't wait to get rid of it. If Align doesn't get better Walmart will start to stock them!
Nitro? Electric? Which version/year?

I'd buy another concept 30 before I ever bought an Align product. I get the economics behind it though. The po peoplez has da rite to be havin helicopters too! (and the guy on here that would rather fake injuries and collect disability and post 10,000 videos a week about how he got ripped off in a trade than get a job)
Which Align products have you owned?

Blade 130x, I threw every upgrade on there to stop it from shaking. It's still a P.O.S

It's not a POS. It's a stone cold simple heli. Maybe you're a POS heli mechanic.

Seriously, get that thing smooth and get it in the air because it's such an awesome flying pocket chopper. Have you actually sat down and methodically balanced your blades? Both statically and dynamically? Try a new feathering shaft, main shaft, TT and T/R shaft. You should already have all those as spares anyway. 99.9% of all vibes will go away if those are all straight and you've balanced your blades.

MDSCUSTOMS - Well thats part of the problem right there. The heli is advertised as only needing a 4ch radio and a .40 size motor. A .40 is not big enough to get the thing off the ground and there were many other little issues with it. I had to keep grinding on the tail shaft because the set screw on the pinion would strip and the gear would spin on the shaft. I could never get the blades to track properly because they expect a novice person to bend the blade grips to properly track them(what a joke). And the exhaust would spit on the starting belt causing it to slip. overall piece of junk.

Richardmid1 - Nope, but worked on many.

I really disliked the Mcpx. I had every mod u could think of except for a brushless tail, and I still hated flying it. After that and the two Trex 250s, I would never own a mini or micro heli. Having big hands also made it harder to work on. I praise the guys who has the ability to stick bang thise tiny things around

Too bad about the mcpx. It seems for every 5 people that like it, 3 have had issues. The Blue Ray 450 was top of the list for being worst heli. Flew like a wet sock.

Yeah, I find it kind of hard to figure. I mean, I haven't had anything to complain about with mine and I beat the heck out of it. Of course I only expect so much of it...I call it the best heli of its size I know of. I suppose if I didn't appreciate it's small size I wouldn't be so happy with it.

Not a heli I own, but have spent many hours work on was a JR 30 size of some sorts. Many hours and could never get the thing to fly. Out of my own helis, don't regret any, but I hate working on my trex 450 pro. Flys great, but too small to work on. I should have changed those darn pan head allen bolts while building but I didn't. Also not a lot of room for the battery.

Heli-Max Axe CX Micro Coaxial was by far the worst piece of junk ever to be purchased. It was so bad that I never was able to get it to hover. This was my first ever purchased 4 channel rc heli.

My second worse was the Blade CP Pro 2. Just about everything on it was inadequate.
