Guess who's back, back again !

So long story short about 6 months ago I crashed my Align 500 for the first time. After that I fell into a deep state of depression, I started drinking heavily to try to cope with the loss of my almost totaled Trex 500. I was homeless for a few months at a time, just me and my pile of parts, my wife left me, I was at rock bottom. Well I finally got my motivation back and stated flying my 450. A week later I ordered a crap load of parts to get my 500 back in the air. She is 95% complete just waiting on new motor bearings and KBDD tail blades which come in Thursday. Also take note that not all of the above information is true . anyway.. here she is !!! and it's good to be back in the Heli world!



I'm not a huge fan of neon frames but it was a helluva lot cheaper than the oem pieces.

Yea a buddy of mine that started flying 450's with me just bought the new 600pro FBL. not to mention his skill has vastly improved. However I can say that flying heli's is like riding a bike, I took that 450 back up and was immediately doing inverted hovers just a few feet off the deck.
Actually spooled up the 500 a few hours ago and she seemed real smooth, I can't wait for the weekend!
Johnny dont be scared, the 500 is a great heli and is really not that bad to crash. I think I spent $150 to get it back up and that was buying ALOT of parts, plus now I have spares of almost everything
