Crash
Whelp!!!! I didn't crash it persay but I was flying it in the front yard last night and it was getting dark and my depth perception was off and a micro heli isn't the easiest thing to see. Anyways long story short I flew it into a tree. The landing gear piece that goes into the frame broke the one in the rear. Canopy cracked a linkage came out of swash the ball that connects to the control arm. And a wire broke off the tail motor insert that goes into receiver. The black wire. I was able to fix all of it flew it today flew exactly the same today.

Hi Guys!

From what I read in European (German) and also US forums the T Rex 150 seems to be sort of a desaster for many of us. I don't speak about issues after crashing because that`s expected to happen. But broken tail motor holders, swash plates or frames out of the box? Shame on you, Align.

I bought mine some days ago and it works well. No issues so far.
But one friend took it out of the box and the swash plate was broken. Another guy here showed me his new heli with a broken tail motor holder what he noticed before maiden. He put some CA on it and it flew till the moment the tail stopped doing his job. He brought it down without crashing, checked for the source of the problem and found a loose contact. The soldering done by the factory was horrible.

Similiar reports can be found in many threads. First I could not believe but finally saw it personally.

I also do not understand why Align has not put in a soft start of the motor by default? One friend damaged his landing gear when spinning up, the pins broke and it was a PITA to get the residuals out of the frame.

Again, mine and of course some of others work and perform well but design of some parts, choice of materials and last but not least quality control sucks.

A charger cable for some cents would have been a nice idea too...

Sorry for the bitter note but many many people are not amused with Align´s latest baby.

Same here after fixing the broken parts it few like new with out issues. But the tail motor windings extending tru out the entire tail boom to the esc need to b addressed including the connector. Everything else is very sold. I'm very happy how it flys and how stable it is. Just please please address the tail motor connection issue and like mention before the tail hub needs to be metal.

I didn't buy one cause align doesn't offer a money back satisfaction guarantee, if they did they would have a lot of paperweights to choose from around the corporate office.

Crashing them is one thing but opening a brand new item from the factory and the motor mounts are broke and the tail mounts are broke and the swashes are coming apart without one flight on them is another issue all together.
I am a big Align supporter 250, 600n, 700n but this one here may just break their back as far as anyone trusting any of their products again.

I'm sorry?! They are broken out of the box without flying them?

Has this actually happened and to more than one person?
60% of the time, it works every time!

WoW how many people on here have had one break without cause, compared to how many are flying with no issues at all,

Just a thought as there seems to be a bit of 130x déjà vu here, bash the hell out of a heli cos the only people that really post something is when they have a problem, let's start a thread for good posts and see how many we get, oh that's right we only complain..........

Align have had a few issues, let's see how their customer service deals with it,

What customer service are you talking about. Align does not have any customer service, And if you think that I am wrong just sit here and see if any one from Align gets on here and calls me out on what I am saying. Please don't hold your breath I would hate to have to call the paramedics to revive you.
