so $6000 lol! I was thinking about $250-300 local no shipping.
The gears are for a 9257 tarot. I had the futaba ones in it, but they got stripped when I used the tail as a lawn dart. My wife got me a Align 500e. I know tech it's a step down, but I can't sell it. I also can't afford to keep three 500's in the air with my other seven. It cost me enough to get this one back into the air for our fun fly. It is the one with the terminator canopy, but selling it with the tarot canopy.

$250 - $300 is very good price point. You will not have any trouble selling that.

I had the Aurora 9 and it is definitely a beast. A lot to take in for a newb for sure. Maybe the radio did him in. And u can't knock the 9x. I love mine minus the annoying menu beeps. Got the 500 parts in today. 4 days with ems shipping

I found some medical tape over the speaker in the 9x helps with the annoying beep. Only issue is when out in the field its very hard to hear your timer going off.

My 500 parts are on its way.. a nice GY520 and metal tray to go with the metal base plate

Stingeragents, have you tried go-go RC ? (Ther on ebay) cheap prices, cheap shipping, quality heli parts. Usually 7-8 days shipping from china. I gave up on hk, unless they have what I need in the USA warehouse. ...anywaysssss~ go go RC~ pretty good outfit. Check em out sometime if you haven't all ready.

I'll check em out evltoy....man, past two weeks I'm just racking my brain on what heli I would like to go with next. Like mhills I will sell one of my 500s and put the money towards an align 550 or the gaui x5..I'm really leaning towards the x5....for the lngest time I was wanting the x7. Just to darn expensive. Anybody here have the gaui x5 ? Or flown one?

If your going to spend that kind of money I would look at a logo 500. Parts for the x5 are about as hard to come by as a logo. Everyone seems to carry x5 parts, but for some reason are always sold out.The logo is hands down one sweet heli. The align to me is nothing more than a sporty 600. Just like the x5 the logos are sized different. logo 400 is a 500. logo 500 is a 600 so on and so on

I have seen many logs of my field and wow.. they are a nice looking bird. But the best part is they are super quite.

Yes all the guys at my field slowly end up with a logo. In fact all the nitro guys have sold the gas and gotten logos. I told them I was not joining club logo lol! I crash too much.
