I guess they do not feel with the business they now have it is needed anymore. Thats OK. I do what I can afford or what other companies would like me to do if offered. Align is not everything out there you know and after all I have build and flown, the market is full of great helis now!


Sorry,

Hi Bob
Without a doubt you have contributed to Align's success! I live in a rural area and am self taught (heli-wise), at least that what I tell people. The truth is I am one of the thousands of nameless people that watch your videos over and over again in a sponge like state. I can honestly say I am not sure I would have made it this far without your help. I have 5 Align machines now, largely because of the start you gave me. You are a significant part of the RC Heli culture.
Thank-you
Jeremy




I hope someone from Align is monitoring this thread!!!

Darn it. I just got the new 600EFL pro and came looking for a build video. Maybe I can send you mine and you can make your build video with mine and send it back built! I have other helis, I am in no hurry!

Seriously though. I would think align would call something like this both good PR and great Cheap advertising. I am shocked they have stopped supporting thinks like this.

Had to bring my old account back to life just to say that I totally agree with Bob playing a part of Align's success, no doubt about that IMO. It's really a shame that Align does not show some recognition of this with a kit and a couple of servos when they release something new...

Bob, you do an awesome job for many of us in this hobby, keep up the good work!

Greets from Norway!

That would be great! Just the flybarless gear and system would be a great help. Greetings from south of France where flying conditions are great year-round!

We need a Finless Trex 600E Pro video!

Maybe we should ask Align if they would supply Finless with a 600E Pro kit, theres not doubt that they would sell more kits just due to the fact that Finless has made a build video, especially when you consider how poor the Align instructions are.

I'm building my 600E Pro now, using this guide. It's not accurate for the Pro build but there are enough similarities and tips that have already saved me from making a few a boo boos, or brought to my attention I should alter build sequence compared to what the instructions do.
