Hi to everyone,

I have a question, I now fly nitro helis, and thinking of getting an electric heli because no noise and no smoke so one can fly almost anywhere with an electric heli.

I been looking at some kits, Logo 10, t-rex ,helimax MX400, and the one that looks good for the buck is the JR, could you help me out and give some info if the JR voyager E would be a good choice over the logo 10. ( Is the JR a stable heli? )

Thanks Rick.

I started with a JR Voyager E. It's a nice heli, but parts are expensive. The same goes for the Logo 10. I have one of those as well and parts are expensive as well. . but then again anything German usually is. The L10 is much more stable due to it's size, but the cost is more since it take more power to lift the heavier heli. A lot of folks are going with the Trex as it is a pretty nice heli and cheaper to get into the air. I just ordered a Trex SE over the weekend so we'll see how it compares. Another option is the Quick of Japan QJ8. I just got one last week and am finishing up the build this week. The quality is very impressive and looks to be a very good heli.

I have had Voyager E and while it hovers well, it's over priced and have a sloppy head. Plus replacement parts are expensive and hard to come by.

What size are you looking for? in your list you have everything from micro to 30 sized. Logo 10 is the best flying among those in your list simply because it's bigger. For smaller birds I would recommend T-Rex. Erich Stolz (username Erich) is a T-Rex factory pilot and he lives near you. Might want to look him up for some advice. His website is http://www.rcheliflight.com.

The Stock VE is not the best chopper, but with a couple of upgrades it sure can become one.

Given the choice for a yard/park flyer, I would get a T-Rex 450XL

Electric heli!

Hi steph280,

I know and spoke with Erick yesterday at a local hobby store in Pasadena, I would like to get a heli bigger than a t-rex, it’s looking more like a logo 10, and also looking into the Quick line of elctric helis, do you know anything about these helis???

And also thanks to everyone else for there good info!

Rick.

Logo 10 is a good heli. I've been flying one for 5 years now and still love it. But it's slightly smaller than the average 30 size, since it uses 500-515mm blades. For slightly larger you can go with stretch kit and run 550mm blades, or get a Logo 14. The only downside is the higher parts cost and availability. I like to be able to walk into LHS and buy crash parts.

Now there is a Quick World Wide which is probably what you're refering to, and also Quick Japan and Quick UK. I have not had experience with the newer Quick WW E helis, but my previous experiences with them have been less than satisfactory. On the other hand Quick Japan and UK makes top notch stuff, just no larger electric helis.

You may also want to look at the new Century Swift which is comparable to a Logo 10. Initial impressions by owners are pretty good, but it's still fairly new (just came out last week).

Another route is to buy a electric conversion kit from tppacks.com and convert a glow heli like Raptor. I have a Raptor 50 converted with the box and it is the best flying 50 heli I have, glow or electric. I really like this option since crash parts are literally blocks away. But when you get to this size, motor/ESC/battery cost becomes pretty steep.

I have pictures of my electric helis in my gallery. Shoot me PM/Email if you have any questions. Good luck and let us know what you end up with.
