HK550 or indeed any 550e clones

Hi,

Does anyone know if HK are planning to do a 550 clone of the infamous Trex550?

All I hear is how chuffing good the 550 is but the 600 price tag is too rich for me right now.

Cheers

P

So far I've only seen a few clone replacement parts for the 550 made by Tarot. But not a complete 550.

I have an Align 550 and I do like it very much.

I have a T550 and it is an incredable helicopter. It sure blows away all those 600’s.

It’s new so it will probably take a while for the cloners to get a kit out. Usually the first clones on the market have lots of bugs so then they do come on the market wait at least 6 months before you purchase.

If you have the funds get a genuine T550. You won’t be disappointed with the performance.

But you can get a second hand Align airframe for that much.
