Why do Align RC Helicopters remain to be popular? Simple, they do everything right – from design to parts support; Align RC knows the RC helicopter business better than most and what it takes to make some of the nicest birds and support equipment out there for the price.
In the 30 years I have been involved in this hobby, I have never seen the type of dominance one brand holds over all the others the way Align RC helicoptersand its line up of T-Rex helicopters do. Add to this a huge Trex aftermarket parts & Trex clone market and it's hard to ignore how Align has and continues to shape our hobby.Yes, SAB's line of Goblins have certainly eaten into Align's domination over the past several years with outstanding high end RC helicopters and innovations as well. I actually consider SAB, the "Ferrari of RC helicopters", and you pay a premium for that exotic design. For an average Joe flier however like myself, Align offers reliable no hassle performance & convenience bang for the buck.
There are Align RC helicopters now for every budget and ability, in a vast array of types and sizes. RC equipment has also improved immensely and has never cost so little.Align is a company based in Taiwan and quite recently got into the RC side of things first with helicopters, and then jumped on the "multi-copter bandwagon" to bonus in on that target rich gravy train. Just what the world needs, another brand of multirotors - yuk!
