Hey guys I figure I would go straight to the source. I'm in a market for a 90 size heli, back in the day I owned T-Rex's 700 & 600. No complains, other then I did not get to fly'em as much as should have. I sold both Rexe's back in 2010. Just recently I got back into the hobby with 550DFC and Blade 360CFX.. I absolutely love the blade, and the 550 it's ok considering second hand, and I still need to learn about electric set-ups and what not. Nonetheless, I'm enjoying the hobby again and flying whenever possible. In a short 6 year absence from RC I have noticed that the electrics are taking over, certainly this is the future of RC flight. Only question is when will nitro disappear from the shelves, and will be no longer offered by vendors. With that said does it make sense to still buy something like N7?

1. Did N7 replace the N9.
2. Part availability.
3. Engine muffler suggestions

And most importantly how is the Synegry N7 a better product then a T-Rex 700N

Thanks...

1. No, the N9 was discontinued a long time ago, the N7 is a completely different heli, the modern nitro

2. Plenty of parts from vendors or direct

3. OS105HZR and OS PowerBoost II pipe (or a Hatori if you can find one)

4. Yes

The N7 is a way better machine then the Trex 700n. My N7 is a pound lighter than my 700n. the N7 is faster, quicker starts and stops, and autos better then any other 700 size I have flown.

There are plenty of parts, and all the big vendors have them.

I am running an OS 105 HZR. But YS has some good engines that work well also.

Nitro is not dead.

Guys thanks for the follow up, I know what my Christmas list will look like this year. As to the engines, considering the cost of fuel - will inget the same performance from 15% as oppose to 30%? And I also noticed that heli gasoline engines are starting to come out. Are any of the Synergy's gas ready ?

My N7 has the O.S.105HZ motor and the MP7 muffler. I am running Rotor Rage 15% Masters Blend and my motor is a powerhouse! I also have a header tank for the extra flight time, and autos...they are almost forever. Big time floater on 696mm Rail blades. Sharp and crisp maneuvers.

Nitro are not dead by a long shot!

No, not enough interest.

There would have to be a whole lot of people interested in a gasser version before Synergy would consider designing one and even then in such small numbers the kit would probably cost $1500+.

Someone was working on a conversion, haven't seen anything in a while.

The biggest gasser guy on Team Synergy (Gasser Mike aka Mike Spano) has moved on to nitro. It's just easier to deal with and way more power.

My vote is go with an N7 and an O.S. 105 HZ-R and powerboost pipe combo from RC japan for $525. No warranty but OS is not known for their warranty service anyway. You'll pay $530 just for the engine at Tower hobbies then still have to buy the pipe for $270 more. If you're not at 5000 feet like I am you can run it on 15% Nitro which will save money on fuel. If you're not near a hobby shop that will stock fuel at a reasonable price your best bet is to order bulk online which helps lower the price a bit. I'm currently using the VP Power Master and like it a lot.

I've run 30%, 22.5%, and 15% in mine and I have settled at 15%. It seems to run smoother with 15% than with the higher percentages and it makes gobs of power.

I love my N7, it flies like and electric...uh oh did I just say that? Yeah because it's true. It's fast and has a very light disc loading. Very easy to perform maintenance on. Great customer support and service. That's what sold me on this Heli was how nice and supportive the Synergy family is. You can't go wrong with a OS 1.05 and Rail blades. Hope you decide to join the club, I'm glad I did.

@Kyle thanks for response, that's exactly what I have been reading people are extremely happy with support and the machine. I think it's a great looking heli as well, I will slowly start buying all the components. Talk about electronics would Spectrum
AR7200BX be suitable ?

Are you using spektrum or jr currently? I've used beastx before and I wasn't really happy with it. The thing is to use a flybarless system you are comfortable with. For me I like Vbar. As far as servos, you will most likely need High voltage servos, unless you run a voltage regulator setup, but that adds another piece to fail. The Heli was designed for 3800mah to 4000 2s lipo and flybarless controller and nothing else on the electronics plate. Keeps the ready to fly weight low. Servo brands...basically depends on how much you want to spend, BK servos are great, they have specific cyclic and tail servos, the same with MKS and JR. Savox is a good servo for the money, just not as tight as JR.

@Kyle yes I have a DX8 V2 - I agree with you less electronics less to go wrong, I would love to have a receiver that does it all. Not to have a heli that looks like a Christmas tree with all the electronics.

I personally would recommend VTX blades. Made mine a rocket with 717s and faster then the 697s I had on it before. Best upgrade you can put on a Heli. My N-7 has JR Servos (HV), VBAR NEO, OS 105, Hatori pipe, 2s lipo direct, VTX 717s.

Yes, the AR7200BX is compatible with all 700 class helis. I'm using the Spartan Vortex VX1n on mine. It is small and has everything you need in one package. I just moved my N7 to my Jeti radio, can't wait to try it out this weekend!
