PROGRESS REPORT
I'm about to install the motor, ESC and FBL unit. Then do the setup and test flight.

Appx build time: 4hrs

Factory Assym: Head, Tail Box, Main Gear Set.

I've found that 16.5mm on servo horn IS in fact on the 4th hole as Poop stated earlier (thanks for the heads up buddy ) Hardware is great quality, pre-assembled parts were not loctited except for tail grip bolts. OWB was properly greased!!

I AM VERY IMPRESSED WITH ALIGN! By far the best over-all kit from them I've seen! The build video will be on my YouTube channel "HeliViewAerial" in the next couple days!

Good work on getting the thing built and flown.

I too think it is a quality rig for the price. I would consider myself a beginner with the helos though, so my frame of reference is only from what my friends and I fly (Miniature Aircraft, Century, and Align). I haven't had to do anything to mine except update the 3GX firmware to 5.0. Otherwise, I have only charged it and flew it.

Good work,
Poop

Thanks man, here's the final product. I put the build video up on YouTube but created a new channel only for 3D heli fun! It's " ShadeTree 3D " .
