Honestly is it? I have a joker c.f. and it's awesome. given my flying ability is pretty weak compared to you guys, just flying it through loops and rolls is amazing. it's soo smooth and quiet. when I get some lipos and lose a bit more weight, and gain some flighttime, I can't think of what else I'd want. of course the new joker is even better.. but honestly, can any heli compare? the only other heli that I would even think about is a 3dmp. but those are in a whole different size. the problem I now face I believe is, once I go to a large heli, a tiny heli won't cut it.

Rhett, the joker is pretty darn close to as good as it gets IMO. Helis are a tradeoff of so many different things (durability, crash cost, performance, etc) and I think the joker does so many things so well.

It is one of the most stable hovering machines I have flown, flys faster then any machine I have seen, and can do 99% of acrobatics that any other heli can.

I'm torn between a Joker and a Ion. What is your personal opinion from those of you who have flown both helis?

I personally have not flown both, but, I have 2 things I've heard. First off, both helis are excellent, and if either side tries to say the opposite it is not true. both are well built, and parts are pretty easily bought for both ( maybe a little easier for ion, but pretty close) The joker is more of a smooth, f3c, pattern type of flyer, while the ion is a bit more touchy, 3d flyer. either can do both well, but it seems they have their "styles". as tabby mentioned, I'm not sure I've ever seen a faster heli ( without drag specific setups) that is faster then my relativly stock joker. I like the looks of the joker, and I like being more of a stand out, that's why I bought it. oh, and, I got a killer used deal

Rhett..... I can't fly, but the Profi sure can.
