Over the weekend I went to the Toledo show, and ran across a heli called Tiger 50 from audacitymodels. I was wondering if anybody out there has one or know anything about it, I know they are fairly new to the market. They seemed to be put together pretty well and the price was very competative with the rest of the 50's on the market. But not seeing any disscusions on them makes me wonder how good they really are.

I have one. Planning to get another as soon as I get some more money saved up (right now I am broke). I believe this helicopter to be a great helicopter. It is VERY stable in hovering and FFF. This is a model that a person can learn with and have it grow with the modeler so the person can have a cheap to fix and buy model that will take them from hovering to all out 3D. I am not just saying this because I am a rep, I wouldnt put my name on the line for a machine that I didn't think was worthy. This heli has a lot of potential.

I saw this one at Toledo, also. I'm considering the EVO 50 as my next one, but this one really has me pondering. It looks very well designed, but my worry would be spare parts distribution.

Mr. Zimmerman, any words on this???

as of right now the "carrier" of parts is Audacity Models ( http://www.audacitymodels.com) BUT....Have your local hobbyshop contact Audacity Models (send them an email: sales@audacitymodels.com) and they will work with your LHS to have them be a dealer of parts. But at the moment Audacitymodels.com is the source for parts, the price difference between the Evo and Evo parts and the Tiger50 and Tiger50 parts is a significant difference and might be worth it to some to deal with ordering their parts online for a while until more dealers get the Audacity parts. Billy, P.S. if you have any more questions please post of PM me.
