SHAME ON YOU ALIGN AND AMAINj
It's sickens me to watch my $1700 heli spin out of control and smash the earth. 6 times this year I've piled in my heli because align can't make a tork tube that works without snapping at the root and causing a crash.. It's hard to save when you're 5 feet off the ground. Knuckle head JEFF Fastbinder says "Don't Fly It So Hard"...F THAT!!! I've finally started to have some fun with these things and,,THE HELI COMES APART IN THE AIR..WTF is that???
I've had spindle bolts snap too!! Did any body at assurance offer me a free blade holder to apologize for my $1200 loss..HELL NO!!Who's in charge over there to stop this type of thing from happening? People say "use arrow shafts and pin em"!! F that too! Why should I have to modify anything on a $1700 helicopter..why should I have to fly a sub par flight for fear of this thing breaking while I'm wompin the snot out of it!!! When ford motor cars has a problem, they do a recall.. Not ALIGN!! They sit back and watch the cash flow in "knowing"the weak points of their design and!! their inability to care, is what sickens me!! FIX THIS YOU A-HOLES. We're supposed to have fun with your product; not feel discouraged to go to the field and worry about what's gonna break today!! THATS NOT FUN!!
A MAIN... Shame on you too!! Your crappy PRO TEC-250/270 put me in twice!! Did I get an apology with a gift card...HELL NO!! You wouldn't give me the time of day when I sent you my PRO-TEC 250s ..you fought me to the end with excuse after excuse why I was wrong THEN!!. You conned me into buying the crack head McGrath 270's "at cost of course" promising me that the problem was cured.. IT WASNT
AND THEY DID THE SAME THING!! They piled in my heli too..All while you sit there collecting money like a Clinton, waiting for your crappy servo stock to empty out so you can make pay roll.., SHAME ON YOU!! Did I get a gift card with an apology recall..HELL
NOOOOO!! You guys suck!
I quit

No Wrongler.. I don't feel better!
I'm out a bunch of cash and flying isn't fun anymore because the big CHINESE corporation doesn't care about quality.
THEN!! I'm told not to fly so hard!! Who says that! I go to the field to womp.. Not to fly silly figure 8's .. If I wrecked your car! I'd pay for it! Align and Amain cost me a ton of cash and frustration with their inferior and defective products and, they've taken no responsibility and!! that's what chaps my Hyde..they
Sell a defective product,for TOP DOLLAR!! Then somehow convince the buyer its their fault!!!
Then promise it's fixed WHEN ITS NOT!
Who does this!!!

I feel for you! I've been flying since 1978. I've been flying Miniature Aircraft ( Walt, Tim and Ted) had Schluter Helicopter all the way when they went on there own. These people took care of there customers. I have nothing but X-cell stuff. What helicopter do I fly now and have good quality stuff. Along with good customer support.
We need more people to stand there grounds. No turn away and say nothing. We pay good money for these things.

I sure do miss the Schoonard's and Bergen's these are good people.

This is my 2 cents worth

Is it really suggested to use an arrow shaft as a torque tube? Sounds ghetto..

Nothing special RC
RC .. It's a Castle 160 w/750mx 112/12 ..2150..cyclones F/R.
And Jason.. Yes.. Arrow shafts are stronger and straighter then aligns crappy aluminum..and pressing and pinning the colletts is supposed to be easy!!
I ain't doing it!!
I shouldn't have to!
For The amount of money we pay these guys for their product.. They shouldn't fail.. The new black tail gears are ALL THE RAGE!! They suck too... The mesh sucks and it creates vibration..WTF?? Everything goes to the lowest bidder and our flying suffers because of it!!

I have been running both the V2 and V3 DFC versions of my Trex 700 for about 3 years now, and I have never broken a TT. I am running the 700/160 on the V2 and the 750/160 on the V3.

I will admit that I don't fly really hard smack , but I have pushed them (particularly the V3) hard enough to strip the OWB. I own and fly SAB, Gaui, Mikado, and JR helis, and I honestly have found the Align helis to be right up there with all of them in quality control.

The only QC issue I ever had was on my first V2 700, one of the blade grips did not have the counter bore for the blade bolt machined into it, but Assurance immediately took care of it, and I have had no issues with it since then. I honestly can't figure out what is causing all of your issues, but it does sound like you have had a real run of bad luck.

I just watched Jamie Robertson push his 700 as hard as I can imagine a heli being pushed, and he is running an 850 (I think), and otherwise everything is stock as far as I know. I've known and watched Jamie fly since before he went with Align, so I can't really agree with you on your perception that Align is junk, otherwise he would be constantly tearing up his helis in flight.

I do agree with you that it is expensive crashing your helis, and I hope you are able to get the issues resolved.

Good luck.
