Megashane13, No, not a bad choice, or an especially bad kit!
It will just take some parts replacements like any other clone kit to bring it up to speed! I am using the EXI plastic kit in a scale fuselage and it flies very well!
Attention to detail will get the machine to where it needs to be. These are the parts I replaced on my kit with Align parts unless otherwise noted:
1) main shaft
2) feathering shaft and thrust bearings
3) main gear set (upper and lower) I used the EXI center hub with the one-way bearing. I've had no issues.
4) tail drive gear with bearings ( gear which drives the belt off of the lower main gear)
5) CNC washout arms( EXI parts from Xheli)
6) CNC mixing arms ( EXI parts from Xheli)
7) Complete linkage rod and ball link set ( This is important, the stock EXI links are very poor fitting. However the Align ball links are larger in diameter where the linkage rods screw in so you have to buy both linkage rods and ball links from Align.)
8) tail rotor shaft ( mine was slightly bent)
Sounds like a lot, but these parts are not very expensive, and they make a world of difference as far as everything working smoothly.
Make sure you check absolutely EVERYTHING on your kit, all screws, fits between parts, especially in the rotor head assembly. A complete teardown is recommended, and don't forget the thread lock!
