Yes, it looks to clone of a number the Atom's systems and maybe a few others.

But far more important for me is the type of aluminum that is used in its' construction. Most helis that originate in China and sold by Chinese companies, that I have ever experienced, had aluminum of far inferior grade then expected, had bearings of a far inferior grade, had GRP plastics that were poorly molded etc. These are all items that cannot be seen in pictures, but that all can be shown inferior after one puts out his cash for one, builds it and subsequently experiences the component slop that develops and the resultant component failures over time.

Next is customer support. Which has always ultimately proven to be spotty at best and at worst, to be virtually non existent.

So for me, my years of heli experience has taught me not to purchase any brand of heli until the brand has proven itself on the market over at least two three year.

I no longer want to use any of my hard earned dollars to purchase someone's product just for the privilege of being one of their Beta testers.

Imagine if people fallow you're foot step and not buy the heli until it been proven then company would go out of business before that. Anyway's I will be testing and hope the best. I've own many heli from China and had very little to none problem. I suppose this will be much better then those clone. Only time will tell. Good thing is WFLY 93705 is a tester also and he live's in CA. So let hope for the best.

Thank you Jcer93705. Yes cant wait for this good quality helicopter to be on my hand and report any problem and stuff that need to be improve and such.

Back then when Align created their first nitro it had so much problem with Clutch and ball bearings. But people had hope and kept looking up to Align for better quality. If it wasn't for the customer Align would fail and they wouldn't be here. Now they have Great product. Same story with Walkera remember when Walkera 22a came out and it wasn't that good? Wow they improve from heli to Walkera because of customer kept on buying the helicopters. If everyone didn't had faith on Walkera it wouldn't be the company that is now.

As I do not think that I should pay to be a companies guinea pig, I will wait a couple of years before even considering buying a heli of consequence (e.g. $300.00 + for heli only). Why should I pay to be one of any companies guinea pigs, when there are already so many well proven designs on the market, that anyone can purchase?

As for Walkera, if all of those who purchased the bad ones had purchased something that was already proven they would have all advanced a lot faster.

Many of us where initially Align guinea pigs and have learned to not do so again with any other company.

Sorry, I was not aware that it was an advertisement type of thread.

That said, everything I posted was meant to be advise for anyone that has not already paid their own good money to be a beta tester for someone's product.

Sir once it's out it won't be on beta stage. Which mean most bug would already be solved. But nothing is perfect. That is why there is v2.

Come on, My friend. we could talk loudly only when you have known what this helicopter look like and had got a flying experience.

Take it easy. We all could choose to talk with each other friendly.

I also thiink that this thread is all rather blatant advertising.

IMHO, I think that if you want to advertise here on RCG, then you should do what the other companies do, and just pay for an ad.
