Why would I spend 800 clams to make my bird look like a fish?
"We got some pilot out there that had a money tree in their back yard and wouldn't think twice about the cost, they'll just stock up
on maybe 3 4 or 5 of them all different theme everyday they would just install a different fuselage. When folks see them at the field they look like a million dollar Babe.

I saw a memo from Align in the hobby shop where I work it's going
to be retail for $799.00.

Now Align can shove it far enough up their [A blank blank] one small crash on it and you might not find a piece to repair.

The more you talk about it, the more they going to wanna buy it.
But on a serious note "YOU" would be really F stupid to even pay 1/4 that price for wannaB canopy trick!

We have 117 days to find out who "YOU" are!

See.... I told you guys that the Marketing guys know how to hook your wallets. If it is $800 then that is the most outrageous price I have ever heard for a bunch of fiberglass.

I have a hard time believing that Align, known for their practical prices, would price a canopy so outrageously. You can get a custom made speed canopy that is used by speed pros for less than that. Obviously, I didn't see the memo but that price doesn't pass the sniff test. If the canopy is sold on its own, then my guess is $199 (and I think even that is too much).

More than likely it is $799 for the basic kit. You can buy a Goblin 700 kit for $800 so who in their right mind would buy a Trex 700 speed "canopy only" for that much! Unless it is made from some magical material that makes your heli go 200mph

I agree with you pitmaster. That price has to be for the complete kit.

Let sharpen our wallet and hold out breaths for this Wallet vacuum is coming "I believe someone here say the F3C body cost about the same so this shouldn't come at

I'M hoping they would wise up and at lease put the base model inside of it.

I'm with you, rpat!
Although, there's not that many gobblers around here, I'm not impressed.
So much gobbler hate Chet I thought we were friends! I do like this Align fuse tho. Looks good! I do agree with the copying thing. Everybody has copied something from someone, whether is mechanical, aesthetic, electronic or whatever. Like the looks of this one, and the Synergy.

Going back with a search I see that the Align F3C fuse did run in the high $700s. Oh well, at that price I can say for sure that I won't be buying one Building out an Align 700E speed will cost more than a Goblin 700 Speed. Once they're out we will have to see how they perform. For the price it better be freakin awesome! I don't need an $800 dress for my heli. She's pretty butt naked

My point exactly.... all of a sudden we need dresses for our helis. I have always been kindred to naked curves ...if you know what I mean.

The only kind of dress that should cost $800 is a wedding dress. My heli is a tramp - she ain't the marrying kind

I don't see what I said to make you think I HATE Goblins.

Besides, since when did my thoughts about a heli have anything to do with friendship?

I'm giving you AND your Goblin a big ol' hug next time I see you, and you had better not kiss me when I do!
