I am thinking of getting an electric setup. I currently have the X-Cell 60 and am way too scared to do any acrobats on it. I can hover with no probs, and a little (stress little) bit of FF. I want to try an electric bird that can do some acrobatics, so I can get more confident with my 60 bird. You can see my gallery of my crashed bird, but have learned lot about the mechanics and set ups from it.

What would be an inexpensive RTR that can do aerobatics without killing my wallet. I saw a Dragonfly RTR somewhere that was inexpensive and uses Hummingbird parts. Just new to electrics and some veteran guidance in this area.

Thanks

For a 3d electric bird you are looking at basically a nitro 30-60 price range. Also the dragonfly is a fp. So for a 3d machine you will most likely need a cp heli. ie.. piccolo pro, hornet cp, modified hb cp, logo, eolo, eco, i'm sure there are more. Hoefully someone with more experience can help you out.

A full 3d capable electric will amaze you at the cost of repairs. they are right up there with the big nitro birds. especially when you add the needed upgrades to make it smooth and controllable.

Man, makes me want to just go with a Raptor 30. I was hoping to find something inexpensive to build my confidence before I try it on my XCell 60.

If your going to go with a raptor then buy the 50 kit. Much more power. The problem i'm having is that i don't want to fly my 30 anymore and it was suppose to be my trainer.

i have thought about selling it, mostly i have been thinking about upgrading it to a 50. Yes the 50 is just a little larger than the 30 but has more power. The parts are almost the same price so crash costs are not that much more.Thats what everyone told me to get if i could afford it and i totally agree with them. There are many other people that have asked "should i go 30 or 50?" and most everyone that has responsed has said go 50. There is tons of info, it is just a matter of finding it.

Yes the 50's fly more stable. They have a larger disk area so the wind does not affect them as much as the 30's. As for finding one for the right price i have seen a few deals in the classifieds here on runryder.
