Now if your looking for all out balls to the walls, you can drop in a 395 kv motor possibly rewinding and run it on 14s. It would then become a 3d beast and would rip up the sky. I see no reason thus far why the frame and mechanics would not hold up. Again there are a few mods you need to do but they are simple drop in items. It's a big whopping heli and a great deal for the price.
So get the additional frame supports, swap out that POS OWB block for the KDE version, swap out the cheap white main gear for the new improved black version and IMO, jump up to the cc160 unless you want another esc. IMO, I'd rather have a a stretched 700 than the porky logo 800 which seems to be less nimble due to the weight.

The 800 kit ALONE is 1000.00 on ebay. The only thing cheap about the Align is the ELECTRONICS. The basic kit is the same price as the Diablo! Lol. Now what's really a joke is that the replacement parts on the Align are MORE than the Diablo..



Dino. Im only sport flying with these issues! NO 3D! Once again pal, Align put the same freakin white inferior gears in the 800 AFTER they found out that they were not up to the task in the 700. How much more explaining does that need???? Why in Gods name even offer a freakin black gear upgrade if the white ones are cutting the mustard???? And that's just the gears. The forums are ripe with the pathetic OWB block that Align continues to use that can't take the added torque of the 800. Just do a search and see just how many of us had that part fail. It took KDE to bail Aligns chestnuts out of the fire on that but it did cost 50.00 out of pocket.



Now if you don't like what I'm saying or ranting about, don't click on the freakin thread! Go about your lives and let companies and people screw you over and take your money. I will NOT stop and judging from the now over 40 private messages from fellow sufferers and potential buyers I received will continue to alert people of the pathetic practices of Align and dissuade people from buying it.

The trekker is a lemon and the canopy should have been yellow......

You copied and pasted an identical off topic post in two different threads..


We all get it, you don't like the trekker, point taken. Shut up and go back under your rock. Everybody's had enough of you.

This looks like smack to me.

Here's a flight that puts it through its paces.
