Back in the saddle


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Well itís been over five years but Iím finally back deep into helicopters. I pulled out my old trex 450 Sport and started ordering parts a month ago. Then I came across this forum and bought a 450 Pro from Cougar. Well, Iíve done it again and am now the proud owner of a 550X Dominator.

Thanks to everybody here for enabling my RC habit!

Re: Back in the saddle

www.Farfast.ca which formerly was named Align RC Canada has everything you need Align and they are just over the BC border in Alberta so no PST. I know www.thehelihangar.ca had some Align 450 Pro KDE parts left , just not sure what is left as they where never on the site. Email them if interested. I hope you enjoy the helis as it is a great hobby. Take care
