Just had to whine a little. Still trying to understand what happened. Pretty sure I went down when I should have went up...my granddaughter is singing the national anthem, too cute. Back to the sim. Crashes are cheap there.

Sorry to hear about the crash. At least parts for Align helis are easy to get and not too badly priced. I use quite cheap Turnigy batteries in mine which do the job just fine.

I've been flying my Trex 600 for over two years and have been lucky with it, it was my first big heli and it's still a firm favourite. If it's any inspiration to get yours repaired here's mine flying this weekend just gone.
