That's too bad that you deleted your post because I would have liked to have read what you said... assuming this was directed at me as a result of what I said. I am perfectly capable of reading between the lines but you have to understand this is a public discussion board and it's very hard to convey "reading between the lines" with typed words. People are going to react to what's said, and what was said got under my skin so I replied.

Sorry for knocking over the chess board... guess I'll fly back to my flock now.

That seems to be very true..I have only had HK clones in the past. And like you I also like high head speeds. It was extremely hard on those hk clones I had . Thinking back, after only about 10 flights something mechanical would always go wrong . I dont believe all clones to be created equal though. These viwrc ( or whatever the letters ) seem to be well made, with better quality components.

The chess thing was more of a general response to Deja, not really aimed at anyone. Subjectively, Dejavu happen to find his pigeon.

This thread is the second best rant I've seen on RCG. Why someone feels the need to bash this to sell that is beyond me. This brings me to my point... Don't smoke crack!

Btw, I have an EXI 500 and I don't like it...I love it! Granted all my replacement parts have been Align for the most part, the frame and most of the head are still EXI. I'm no 3D master, so for now, she fits like a glove! I love that heli!

Your post is exactly why people bash clones..In hindsight they should have just went with an align model or other brand name from the get go when all you are left with is a frame and head.

When I purchased my first clone 450, I already knew that Align was better. What I didn't know was 'how' much better. After replacing all the 'important' stuff with Align parts, I am convinced that starting out an Align kit is a better way to go (unless you thrive on troubleshooting). My problem was that I didn't have enough money to fork over for an Align all in one go, so I chose the nickel and dime approach of upgrading as needed, which in some instances meant ording Align parts to complete the assembly of the clone kit. In hindsight, I would have to say that one will be better served by putting money in a jar and saving up, the old fashioned way, for an Align kit.

This is all so very subjective, Mercedes vs Lincoln, clones make this an affordable hobby for many people and the arguement that they run off many doesnt hold water either. Most people started out with toy grade helis, ya know, the ones with brushed motors that would fry after 20-30 hovers, sloppy servos, heck, sloppy everything. If that didnt run em off then I imagine they got the bug to continue.

For some, the school of hard knocks is the lesson best remembered. I'm not going to go into whats already been stated in here,Ad nauseam. But it shouldnt get under anybody's skin as to what someone else owns or flies, as long as their doing it and having fun. The guy driving the Mercedes isnt any smarter or better then the guy driving the Lincoln.

That was your point?

"To sell that?" ha! Like I get something, I wish. My opinion is ernest (P Worrel), to anyone considering a clone, especially those that don't know any better. To avoid my same mistake.

But in regards to this whole debate I wish we could make a poll out of this thread. What exactly would the poll options be though?

Something to the effect of " to buy a clone or not to buy a clone " that is the question..In rcgroups the winner by a long shot would be to buy..Post the same question in helifreak or runryder, And one would get flamed for even thinking about a clone.
