Tarot 450SE V2 GF Kit?

Has anybody heard of this kit or have one?
I heard they are built at the Align factory?
I have just found them while I was searching on google.
The kit looks pretty good and the price is really good for what it looks like

nothing eh? I have a line on these kits as well from a coworker in China. I'm curious if we can get parts for it though.

I have one. I have absolutely no complaints either. I've never flown a real trex, but if it went in, I'd buy it again. I'm not a 3D pilot or anything, I've never crashed it after 50 flights or so.

The price is hard to beat and it does seem part-compatible with the trex. The chinese even copied the Align manual, not just all the CNC parts .

Ok, thanks! I've heard that there should be low quality of the bearings in this heli. Nothing you have noticed?

For the price, I expected everything to be low quality. Like I said, I have about 50 flights of hovering and figure-eights, and I don't notice any unusual noise from the main bearings. How do bearings in trex's typically fail? are there any warning signs other than noise? It's a good bird.

I don't know, but I have about 50 flights with my HK-450 and can't notice any problems either

Interesting. Priced around USD$110 delivered. FYI you can get the CopterX AEv2 kit for about USD$85 delivered and the main difference appears to be that the Tarot has FG frames whereas the CopterX AEv2 has Alu frames. I recently bought an AEv2 and it is not top quality but quite acceptable for the price and flies well enough for me.
