Align parts
motor, speed control, tail, head, OK never mind let me change this around What is not align....Frame lol! 502 gyro, eflite servos, hyperon tail servo.

I'm only selling it because I don't need two and I rarely use one anymore. Always flying the 500's and crashing the 450
How does it fly,, and what do you want for it?

it still gets a wag of death every once in a while. It stops just as soon as it starts I blame that on the gy520 I just put in the numbers everyone was using at the time and just left them. I also think it could be my bad inputs lol! one of the great 3d guys at our park flew it and it never gave him the wag. He loved it and couldn't believe how responsive the tail was.

anyone interested just pm me. Those are not scratches on the tail boom just bug guts that I have never cleaned off.

The weighted tail blade holders could make the tail better and reduce the chance of the WoD.

Thanks I got a set, but they had more play than the HK's.

+1 I just received my align weighted blade grips too. And I must say the slop in it is not acceptable. Very disappointed there for align.
It would need some mods for it to be near perfect. The slop is like this guy is experiencing

Slop in the tail grip (0 min 44 sec)

Mine are like that too, but they work fine, and have done for a large number of flights. Centrifugal force, in this case, is your friend.

pitchp, what is the difference in size compare to the HK250GT stock canopy?
Does the Align's good enough for 1000mah 3S battery?

I'm not too sure on the dimensions on the 1000mah lipos but you may need the EX canopies from fusuno or canomod. Just like this guy is using the fusuno EX. Notice he modded the hole

Mine has the exact same slop (if not worse), but the heli flies fine for me...

Just found my MicroHeli head to have a stripped swash follower arm screw?
See pic for a better description...
Any body have this problem? I used green loctite and screwed it back in, will let it sit for 36hrs, and give it a try. Might be time for a dfc head...?

as for me I received one of my items in the mail today. Yep that's right it's the EXTREME tail boom mount.




as usual slowly slowly all my parts are come in. I said before a probable 2 months on this build I may have to extend that to 4.

How did you guys get your flybar centered? I can't get it centered enough to not cause excessive vibrations, even using calipers that measure 0.010". It is killing me because it is the second to last thing before I can fly the heli

I would say your vibrations are coming from something else.
