I've flown some in airplanes and with my BL.. Just never had a failure which is surprising with my BL crashes..

My 130 has been through a few linear servos since I got it. 2 completely quit and another stopped holding any torque once the heli started. All 3 have been replaced. I took some of them apart multiple times to clean the residue which helped prolong their life. My elevator servo stopped working in flight the last time I flew it so I shelved the heli. I am tired of throwing money at this thing.

Glad to see Align went with normal small servos on this one.

I am too but we shall see how they hold up. They should be more reliable that the linear servos with all their guts exposed to the open air. But I don't want to have to replace gear trains just from a small accident either that the linear servos handle with no problem.

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

The servos will probably be junk (like all of Aligns mini servos), but hopefully they can be swapped for other mini servos of better quality. The 130/mcpx/etc have one servo option for each... and they suck

I am hoping that this 150 isn't a money pit like the 130 was. I think that part of the problems with these micro's is that we want them to fly like a 600, and I don't think that is ever going to happen.

As far as price, I found it will be under 250.00.

Doesn't that sound a little steep for the size?

Interestingly I don't as of now find the motor tail to be a turn off. By the looks of the tail motor being an outrunner and of substantial size compared to the tail rotor with its torque seems at least in the vids keep up very well. How fast the piro rates are in both directions remains to be seen,,,or I missed that v id.

the blade bl is 230 so doesn't seem like under 250 would be crazy expensive

Now that I think about it ,I paid $249 for the 130, so I guess that it isn't out of bounds.
