Traxxas was started in 1986 with an idea for what was at that time an entirely new concept for a fully assembled, hobby-class R/C car. This new car would have all the same benefits of a hobby-class kit such as replaceable parts, hop-ups, and a high-quality component radio system, however it would be fully assembled with a colorful body, right out of the box. Traxxas coined the term "Ready-To-Run" (RTR) to describe this new class. Since a fully assembled, ready-to-run car would appeal to the entry-level beginner, a toll-free customer support line was set up from day one to service an entirely new category of hobby consumer. At first, acceptance of the RTR concept was slow because traditional R/C kits had always been unassembled. Once people realized that a Traxxas RTR had the same performance and quality as the traditional R/C kits, only that they didn't have to build it, the ready-to-run car was a runaway hit! A kit version would still be offered for those who still wanted to have the building experience.
From the Manufacturer
Alias is a clean-sheet design that focuses on the performance and design elements that make flying and even learning to fly, fun. The first mission objective was durability. Alias is built around a unique molded-composite frame that is combined with clever high-tech construction to make it extremely light and virtually indestructible. Your flying fun goes on and on without worrying about breakage from crash damage. The next mission was performance. Fun always comes from having more power so Alias' motors have 50% more power than standard motors and when combined with the lightweight design and high-tech materials, Alias is lightning quick and ultra-responsive. A completely new flight control system was developed that provides unmatched 6-axis stability that works in the background without impacting performance and speed. It acts like a virtual spring that snaps Alias back to level controlled flight no matter what situation you find yourself in. New pilots can fly faster and perform aerobatic maneuvers sooner than they ever thought possible with Alias' unique flight control system. Alias is uniquely engineered to satisfy the needs of both new pilots who want to experience the fun of flying and experienced pilots who want a fun and relaxing way to sharpen their skills. Thoughtful design touches abound including the telemetry powered battery fuel gauge that provides visual and audible alerts when it's time to recharge the flight battery. Technology is utilized the right way to enhance performance, maximize durability, increase flight time and make Alias easy to fly. Alias model 6608 comes fully assembled and ready-to-fly in one of 4 fun colors. Included are a 650mAh LiPo flight battery, a high-output USB fast charger and four AAA batteries for the transmitter.

Well, after maybe 40 minutes of flying time, one of the motors failed (second motor appears to be on last leg). The device was great when it worked, and the flying dynamics are solid. But if you product fails shortly after purchase, you get one star.
Contacted traxxas, and they lived up to their reputation for solid US based customer service. The are shipping me new motors, and advised that you must throttle down completely if a crash is imminent. They indicted that any stall in the motors could damage them. This bit of advice would have been very helpful in the quickstart guide. Anyways, i am moving them up to three stars as the product should be a bit more durable than that.
I originally ordered one of these off of Amazon Wharehouse. Not even a full day in, it stopped working. (The condition explained was "repackaged")
We returned that one and purchased a new one. It flies better and smoother and seems to be holding up better. Go for new on this despite the $10-$15 savings.
Seems durable, but we have to tighten a few things after a small crash here and there.
I bought it almost 2 months ago and have been averaging at least 2 flights every day since then.
I have since customized mine by adding different color blades and led light covers. I love how affordable the parts are. For new fliers it's a very easy learning curve with the three different modes of flying. I started in easy and gradually made it to flying consistently in fast and am currently mastering reverse flight.
Overall this is a fantastic first quad and you won't be disappointed.
So far I've only flown it in the default mode. It's really cool to take it out at night and just soar up a couple hundred feet and spin it. It's got some bright lights so I'm sure there are going to be UFO sightings reported.
I bought a small "Car Alarm Remote Keychain DVR Camera" . I'm pretty sure the Alias will handle it OK taped to its belly.
The motors are strong enough to strip the gears if the blades are prevented from rotating while under power. I found that out the hard way. So, if a crash is unavoidable, kill the throttle.
The spare part is "Latrax Traxxas Spur Gear, 78-Tooth Alias (2 piece)". I have a couple sets on order from Red Rocket. I couldn't find them on Amazon.
What a blast! I'm a kid again.
My Blade 180 QX is almost as agile, and hasn't broken down once. Too bad "almost as agile" isn't as good as "agile". I don't know whether to recommend the Alias or not....it's a love/hate thing.
I will have a followup in a week and then a month. It is really hard for me to tell you how fun and how easy the Alias is to fly. I guess you will just have to get your own and see for yourself.
