No, Align isn’t being cloned. Align is cloning of all the others predecessor helicopters. What innovations has Align brought to the market?

What innovations has Align brought to the market?
economies of scale ! and that matters for me the end consumer. maybe when I'm a heli champ that might change, but while I'm paying cold hard cash, i like cheep and available parts.

Align packed parts differently than before by putting two of a lot of parts in a pack. Two booms, two gears, etc.. They constantly upgraded parts leaving dealers stuck with old inventory and they pioneered the concept of multiple distributors with no responsibility to stand behind the product until a few distributors stepped up and took support seriously. Align pioneered the advanced use of anaerobic sealants where none should have been used. Over time they have gotten better though and in a lot of cases Align has been every pro pilots go too backup machine between sponsorships.

A lot of copy catting goes on in the Pacific Rim and Align is a big target.

Nice analogy. But of course, would one prefer a Land Cruiser when going off roading or a BMW X5? Align have hit the sweet spot for what most people want.

Talking about cloning, does anyone remember when the Logo XXtreme first came out: IIRC the pictures from the coming out display in Germany showed it with an Align link in the head?

Two spare parts in a bag is an Align innovation?

Where did the term innovation come from?

Apple didn't invent MP3 players, they made them easier to use.
You think so? I really dont care much for the whole Itunes thing.
I have had a few Non Apple Mp3 players that were much easier to get music on and off the device compared to Itunes.

What are some of the other exact clones out there?
