Okay guys this is the deal.
Someone in the family wants to start flying.
The ? i have is!!!!
I already own 2-Evo-50s and i DO WANT TO STAY HIROBO,
My thoughts are
the shuttle Plus over the evo 30
and would the new os-37 be a good choice.
Now i donot want to go with a rappy-30
Not that theres any wrong with the heli just want to stay Hirobo.
Also i know the Evo-30 is the same heli as the 50 except
some bells and whistles and this person will not be
useing that,

So is the choice good some opin.

Thanks
John

well, the main thought would be that if you
got the Evo30, you'd already know all
the gotcha's, any spare parts would be
common and you can easily change it to a
50.

The only advantage of the Shuttle is that it's
less $$$ initially but otherwise, a deadend.

Have a friend with the OS 37 says it makes fantastic power and is ultra smooth. He raved about it.

Just do the Evo, not worth saving a few dollars on the shuttle, this way all of your spares are interchangeable 100% except for blades and the main gear.

BTW John, I can't figure out if I know you, we practically live next door from what I can tell, pm me with your full name if you don't mind. Are you in the NIRCHA club?

Why not just get another EVO50? It'll be more stable with the 600mm blades and you can tame the cyclic down for newby status. That way if you find they are advancing quickly there not gonna outgrow it, and you won't find yourself diggin in your wallet to upgrade the 30 to a 50. Not that much more money imho. Throw some 600mm woodies and some training gear on there and walaa.

Never go full retard!

Go 50.... Evo 50 I think it would make a Great Beginners heli...Much more stable than a 30...so it will give that beginner a lot more confidence ..
I wish I would have had a 50 like that to begin learning with..

I'll vote 50 mainly as I'm wishing I had a 50 right now.

both the Evo 30 (with a 37-40 motor) and an Evo 50 would do you right as a begginer. get which ever suits you better.

John,

I went the Shuttle Plus way and it is a nice helicopter, but it is not in par with the Evo! I also agree with the other guys that going with the Evo 50 is the way to go rather than the 30.

Also, if you go with the Shuttle the OS 37 won't fit without major work on the frames. A close friend of mine bought himself an OS 37 for his Shuttle and one or both of the needles will be right in the middle of the frame side, cutting the frame there will weaken it substantially!

You do not what a shuttle plus unless it is going into a scale fuse. The Evo with an OS 37 flies very nice and can easily be upgraded to a 50 if needed.

Bigger is Better!

Hi thepoint,

I think money value your best bet is the Evo 50, best money ratio, and like everyone says the bigger the bird, more stable it will be.

As much as I like Shuttles, the EVO really is a better value. I've had a Shuttle of some flavor since 1989 and know them inside and out. In addition to an EVO 50 that I upgraded from a 30, I have a Shuttle Plus and still like the way it flies. I think it flies better than a Raptor 30.

The major drawback to the Shuttle is that if you stay in the hobby and build your flying skills, you'll eventually want more power. The Shuttle can't be upgraded. You'll have to replace it with a new helicopter.

Basically, it comes down to this: If your family member just wants to try out the hobby and isn't sure if they're going to stick with it, the Shuttle Plus will be the most cost effective way to do it. It might cost more in the long run if he stays in it, but he won't have as much on the table if he doesn't. If he's pretty sure that he'll stick with it, the EVO 30 can be upgraded a little at a time as his skills improve. Another upshot would be that you can share parts and if he doesn't stick with it, the EVO would be easier to sell.

EVO-50 no other choice in my book. Now if OS would only use a better set of bearings. You would have the best of both worlds.

At least if you choose the Evo 50, you either have a spare if the other half gets board or a bird to rob parts from when nobodys looking!!!

Evo 50 all the way smooth, stable, that’s what you want in a 1st heli if you ask me but yet great for 3D or just sport fly when that comes.
