BladeStrikes and Hippie,
Feel free to buy the 150 align wants me to, I have been down the motor driven tail road many times... never again.
Ive posted videos of mine and after watching it again today,the servo was also shot..Nothing but issues when I got it back and after sending it in again to Horizon,I sold it right away..I haven't seen anyone fly a bone stock 130 without issues,they all have the well known tail issues...I wasn't about to dump $$ in something that would be worthless to sale down the road if I wanted..Now the Nano CPX was a really good flyer so im not at all knocking Blade helis but the 130 is the worse heli Eflight made..
So you know,the Align has a brushless tail motor and i'll bet it puts the 130's tail to shame in every way..Blade screwed up going with the crappy wire drive,bushing ect...The whole tail on the 130 is garbage and a brushless would of been the way to go..You'll see ALOT of 130's in the sale section when people get there hands on this one..Do some research on micros with modded brushless tail motors,its the only way to go on these little guys..

That's our experience also, not just mine, pretty much everyone at the field says the mCPX is much more durable, and a better choice than the 130. I'm not bashing Blade either...just the 130. I do think all Align helis are better than Blade though, and I'll be selling my 130 and going for either the mCPX bl, or the Align 150.

If they were smart they would make a direct bind and fly series for futaba...
Funny that no one has figured this out yet!
