Hey Everyone

After much deliberation and searching on forums I have just ordered an Align Trex 550 DFC Pro. I looked very seriously at the Goblin but went with what I know. I have built and often rebuilt 4 Align machines over the years so I am very familiar with them. My 450 has an AR7200 on it but with this machine I am going with the iKon FBL system. I will use a CC BEC Pro and will initially use the included Talon 90 ESC but plan to upgrade to a Jeti Mezon ESC in the near future as Santa brought me this for Xmas:

With the Jeti system and Mezon ESC I will have full data telemetry which I have never had. Should be an interesting building/setup experience!!

I'll let you know how it turns out!

Cheers and Happy New Year!!
