I am interested in flight times, tail motor, and durability in crashes.

I would hope it is a crash - pickup - fly unit.

Unfortunately, most of the time the reality doesn't match the advertising.
That comment of mine wasn't directed specifically at the Trex 150, but was offered as a more "general" observation based on seeing a lot of helis come (and go) on the market.

I hope this little bird lives up to the promise, with Align behind it, and with their experience in developing helicopters, it has a much better chance than the Blade MCPx or some of the other common brands on the market today. That you can bind to Futaba FHSS AND Spektrum DSM2/x modulation schemes would be a real plus in this ready to fly arena.

You know what guys other than a couple of vids Align is not saying much about this little bird, and not giving any advance hype( besides the vids)like any made up advertising or specs to give us, makes me a little leary.

I think we would all like to see one hit a wall or the ground and see how it holds up!

I still will wait to see if the servos strip easily in a crash compared to the linear servos in the blade.

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

Good Heli flying is throwing it at the ground and missing

only time I broke a gear on one is as secondary damage. But I have had the motors and the sensors fail on them.
