trex 100x(don't waste your money)
I had some extra xmas cash and bought a trex 100x thinking it would be a fun indoor heli.
If i was a first time flyer there is no way i could have set this up to fly,I still can't get it to fly right and i have been flying heli's for well over 10 years.

no 2 flights are ever the same,one moment it feels ok and the next thing you know I am holding full right rudder just to keep it in place.

kind of a waste of 100 dollars,should have kept it for batteries for my trex 500!lol

I bought the heli on ebay,not sure if they will take it back.

I guess i expected a little more than this from align,I loved my trex600nsp until I powerdrove it into the ground.

If anyone has one and has some tips i would love to hear them!

I will keep tinkering and see what happens,after all it's only money.lol

Trex 100x is a total piece of crap!! thank's align! not even a week old and all it does is spin around in circles.

Anyone thinking of buying one do NOT waste your money!

I noticed that no align reps are answering this topic,probably because they know this heli is junk!!
I sent 2 emails to align and gave them my phone number,hopefully they will respond.
I should have done some research before i bought it,are the trex250's better?

The Trex 250 is a nice little heli, but it's not for everyone. It takes extra time and setup effort to fly well, and is a bit finicky at times. With some TLC it flies nicely for its size.-----

Thanks for the buyer beware post. Was on the fence last week with the 100x and mcpx. Haven't read anything good on either one.AMA# 1078375

More than a year ago, I had similar rudder problems with my 100 but it was a 100S, the one older than the 100X. Being my first heli I searched the forums for a solution. Someone suggested putting in Nine Eagles Solo Pro tail blades.

For some reason it worked!

Also I remember turning the heli on first before Tx to make sure you arent moving the heli about while the gyro is initializing
