thats not really what im worried about, i like my align just fine i think its a nice model and i like nice ones and putting good electrics in them and dont waste my time on building budget flyers really i feel i have too much invested in learning to fly to cheat myself but i can appreciate a good deal on a heli kit for sure .. i doubt i will even build the copterx unless i total out one of my other helis and move the electrics over ... i was looking more at it like its a good spare parts model actually and if i have the align tore down i can move things over to it like the blocks and whatnot .. so yes that more what im thinking 'is it align compatible' ...

me and my father-in-law both got one of these for christmas, and I just finished building mine tonight, and hovered it in the living room tonight.

seems pretty good, but i am not using the best electronics, what we started with was

cx250se
6110e spectum reciever
dx6i
telebee gyro(pain in the @ss to set up by the way)
4X hxt900 servos
20 amp mystery esc
hobbyking ka400h brushless motor

tomorrow I plan to do the maiden flight weather permitting, and I will let everyone know what the verdict is!

Gino: The ehirobo motor and esc are great. The motor is basically the same as the stock align motor. I find the cx250se to be better than my align 250 that has been plagued with tail issues from the start. Ive sold my Align 250 since.

There you go
Yeah, because on the Align 250 you only need to change the tail servo, mixing arm bearings, sort out the slop in the tail, and hope that the undercarriage and belt don't break

Johnny, in your vid the tail looks like it has a bit of wag to it. Were you flying in high winds or was it just me? I might bite on one of these. My HK250GT has the tail nightmare that I'm in the middle of.

Ya...I knew I should have never posted that vid...lol....the heli wasnt ready for its maiden. I hadnt zoomed in on the gain yet. I had a touch to much. Its rock solid now. No tail issues what-so-ever. Youll see it in the next video I put out. I also have the
hk250GT and the Align 250. They both have tail issues. The CX250SE has none. Plug your elelctronics in it...and fly!!!

Cant seem to get the tail to hold either, did one pump, lost the tail, and piro'd to its death. so now its a waiting game for parts...

For my setup i used the stock motor and esc that ehirobo supplies for the cx250se. Its a very nice combo. Im using the logictech 2100t gyro...rock solid. I also tried the 401b gyro it was also rock solid but was kind of to bulky for the cx250se....however it was also rock solid...and for 19 dollars...damn it worked great. I never had any luck ever using the telebee gyro.

Now that looks better Johnny. I'll say this I have my HK250GT purring like a kitten. I had my old POS telebee gyro on it and that was the source of the tail headaches. I had a spare Gaui GU210 lying around and threw that on it, boom no more tail issues. I grabbed a set of 42mm blades this weekend at the LHS and the tail is locked solid now. I would love to get the CX250 and compare the two. John where is that vid you promised about convincing the wife I need another helicopter? I'm up to 7 birds now and I get barked at everytime another box of goodies shows up.

Hello Mulikow
I ordered the same motor and ESC along with the cx250SE.
It should arrive this week.
I can't find any info on the esc as to if it has a BEC and the ratings.
How do you have yours set up?
Are you running a separate BEC?
Any advise would be appreciated,
Thank you,
Richard

cx250se

Im using the gy401B gyro...available at ehirobo.com....19.99 dollars.

I just plugged and play with the esc...didnt program it at all. Not using an external bec...i think the esc comes with it internally. I should program it though...and have it soft start and brake off. I'll see about getting some info on the esc...and post it.
