Kit. - The kit comes in a nicely packed box with the components grouped into their respective packaging.
Head Assembly - Pretty much the standard stuff, quality of the metal and finishing is reasonably good. The swash uses sealed bearings.
Frame - Frames follow the newer ESP design and at 2mm thick, are slightly thicker than the standard Align ones. Carbon weave was uniform throughout and well cut out. One thing to note, the metal aileron levelers are the old electric version and not the new ESP version which is slighly slanted at an angle. This should not affect the flying in anyway as the geometry of the linkages remains the same.
Metal holder with CF servo frame for tail servo
Torque Tube Drive - Gears fit well together and torque tube is solid.
Tail assembly - Tail comes all metal with the metal tail pitch slider and metal tail rotor holder. Pitch slider slides smoothly on the tail shaft.
Canopy is the standard lighting yellow fiberglass canopy. Material is solid and paint work is ok.
Issues and conclusion.
