Hi Guys,

I was almost ordering a T-rex SE, when I saw the new Robbe Crown III , but there is not much info about it yet, it will come in December..

It will do about 200 euro's,with alu and CFK parts, a bit cheaper then the full SE but what do you think?

I want a hard midi-3d machine outdoor, It's my first electric heli, fly a few years nitro 90 class..

Any recommendations..??

That looks an awful lot like just a zoom 400 re-worked a little bit with some metal parts or so.... I dont think its anything new in terms of design form or function whereas the TREX is in fact something much newer and decidedly better flying than the zoom 400. Also its bigger so it will handle wind better.

After owning a couple of Robbe Eolo helicopters (I still have one) I don’t think I would ever purchase another of their products. The Eolo had a lot of problems and it took them three years to get the bugs worked out and they were all very expensive upgrades.

The two biggest problems with Robbe are high cost and very slow response time for fixing problems. My T-Rex is more fun than the Eolo and costs 1/4 as much.

The latest T-Rex 450XL and SE are proven designs and Align is very fast at coming up with improvements at very reasonable prices.

I would stick with the T-rex as it is a proven product. The SE comes with a ESC and Motor that are good quality.

I agree with all, t-rex is more proven and a different design. One thing I can say is the T-rex is not an original netiher, it is a mix of many helis. In the beginning the total geometric design of the layout of servos, the way the push pull was setup was copied from Thunder Tiger, anyone who disagrees should look at the early days, the seperate tail drive / auto assembly is really a Hirobo theft, and several other items on the t-rex are visibly takes from other helis. Nothing wrong in it at all the way I see it, take something that is proven and why not. All I am saying is that far too many people refer to the T-Rex as something totally new and never thought of when it is a combination of many proven helis and theories. CHeers

Looks nice but at $36 for the main gear replacement, I'd go broke quick
I'll take the two for $10 on the T-Rex.

ok, so the Robbe is just a zoom ?

Ok, clear, the Robbe Crown is an improved Zoom ?

Ok, so when I go for the T-rex, for a hard 3d outdoor set-up, not just "bling-bling" should I :

Buy a SE or normal with upgrades ?

When buying SE, is the combo engine and ESC good for 3d or then buy the "Superdrive SD260 Motor" and "Jazz 40-6-18 Regler" ?

Want to buy on http://www.freakware.de/shop/artike...php?wgruppe=174

What other upgrades do I need ? (I have 401 and reciever)

Thanks for comment in advance !

Greetings,

I love mine and so does everyone i have talked to who has one (EP8). Problem is there just arent that many people who have them yet. It wont replace my Trex's tho as its an entirely different class of heli but i have to say i have been playing with this one ALOT more since i got it than my trex's.

There are no upgrades to get on this model. If the motor set up isn't enough for you then replace the motor after you try this one out.

4S you might need a different set up but for 3S I think this will work great for most pilots.

Not sure I like the Crown III, it looked like the head was some wierd type of design, I would get a T-Rex 450XL or a Revo CP, both seem to fly well and have cheap parts

-= I know there is Money in RC helicopters. I put it there=-
