Looks nice but Nitro is dead .
Only fueled heli I would consider now is a proper gasser .
After being spoilt with the electric models no hassle I just can't be bothered to go back to an oily messy heli that needs regular maintainance .

Looks nice they finally gave people what they been asking for . At least for me anyways.
Direct servos to swash control.

Too bad they missed the bus about 5 years ago

spending time, paying attention

I think since the goblin nitro then MSH doing a nitro protos, now Align revamping the 600 and 700N I think nitro is making a come back.

Large electric models are just not practical for me with the huge expensive packs, and all the charging gear and only 4 minute flights.

Please notice I said "for me"!, don't ruin my topic with N vs. E please chaps.

I love it. I still plan keeping my 600N. I hope the parts support will be around even with the new models coming out.

I want one of them to design a gasser bad , I be happy to except the lower power and just use it for light 3d and big sky .
I’ve tried loads to fly my nitro models but for me the buzz of flying them and getting nitro fuel all over me all the time as long gone .

Is it just me or do both of those pics look photo shopped? It does look nice though.

Some arguments are sound and nothing more

who would bother with photoshoping news about Align nitro heli, its not an IPhone. Align is about to have a big fun fly with 1.5m in prizes. So I will bet you it will be released.

It would be nice and I think they should have a Flybar option.

I'm glad the frame looks quite nice and compact because I certainly wouldn't fly it with that canopy on!

Does not look like the NX7 frames.
1) its a split frame
2) guia has big square block in the front
3) configuration is all components does not match gaui

I will be interesting how the CG is going to be on it. I know its a challenge with w Nitro doing direct swash.

Here is another pic too.

Only one concern. If the canopy is as thin as 700X, then i can se major failers where they the start hole is.

To get the c of g right for direct servo to swash all they had to do is make a larger main and pinion gear so the motor sat further forward, this would also mean they could put the tank directly under the main shaft so no c of g change throughout the flight. Judging by the look of the main gear and where the tank is they haven't done this which is a shame.

I'm guessing apart from direct servo to swash and a new canopy design this heli will be identical to the last one.

I did not mean it was an exact copy of the nx7 .
But it resembles the same narrow shape and size

What the heck is that big red thing out front? And from what I was reading this is a prototype.. we'll see hopefully it's released soon! Love the smoke!
One more thing. What's with all the carbon out front.. seems like a ton of wasted space and weight
