Having fun with my 150 over the work bench!
I just wanted to share a photo of the 150 that I've been flying in my basement a lot over the last few weeks. This time using it to cool off a mug of hot-chocolate. This heli is a ton of fun during the cold Canadian winter.

Yep, a few times I've only broken the skids and a swashplate. I have not bent or broken anything else. If you're flying outside and crash it in the grass, 9 chances out of 10 you can just pick it up and continue flying. Concrete in the basement is a bit harder though!

Would you say it compares to the MCPX as far as crash worthiness?Bill Whittaker

If you guys really want to sell these things, show a uncut video of crashing it until it breaks (or hopefully doesn't)

Durability is just as important as how well it flys.

I'd say it's about on par with the MCPX for crashing.

Brian, while I agree that durability is a strong-suit, I feel that a good flying model is most important. Align is catering to those in the hobby who want high performance, cost effective helicopters. We all want the best flying heli, at a reasonable price. That's what the 150 offers - it's honestly the best heli of it's size I have flown. Once it becomes more readily available I think you will hear the same from others.

If you are fresh to the hobby and want something indestructible and extremely easy to fly, there are other alternatives (coaxial, quads etc.) The lighter it is, the better it will fly. It obviously has to be strong enough to take some abuse (which it is), but you're not going to be able to crash it over and over again without replacing any parts. If it was made that tough, it would fly awful. You have to take something to gain something, and I think the 150 is a great balance. Depending on what type of surface you crash it on, you can continue to fly. Other times it will need some very minor repairs.
