I just finished a Little Quickie 8 from Quick Worldwide and wanted to give you all a quick review on this little machine.
First of all lets start out by saying I've had a Trex and have flown a few other small electrics and they don't even come close to flying the way this machine does. It's a all carbon fiber and aluminum constructed machine first off which puts it a step above alot of the machines that are out there and it even comes with a pre-painted glass canopy. I'm running 475mm carbon blades, a 4s2p 4000ma battery, full size servos!!, a 401 gyro, castle creations 60 and an axi motor. This machine from the first hover was very very smooth and remarkably stable in the wind for a small machine.
This weekend I got to do some real flying with it for the first time with some nice high speed passes, stall turns and some loops and rolls. I would have to say that this chopper flys more like a good 30 size glow machine than one of it's size. Quick Heli is working on some better motor combinations and battery options to get the headspeed up a little and I'm sure this would be a great little general aerobatic to 3d machine. The newbies should really be looking here also, your going to be much better off with a durable stable machine like this than some of the fragile unstable plastic E-heli's that are out there.
Any of you that are looking at getting into E-power really should look into the Quick Electric series of machines. You can't beat the kit pricing for good NON-PLASTIC choppers and the replacement cost for parts is really good too.
If you guys have any question feel free to shoot me a PM and I'll fill you in on whatever you need. Chuck at Quickworldwide is a great person to talk to also. I'll have some pics posted tomorrow night in my gallery so take a look.
