My question is for mild flying loops, roll, invert hovering am I really going to notice the differance between a 90std and a 90se. And what engine would you recomend for easy tuning with decent power. I am going to put tt md500 body on it. I know the bling looks nice on the SE.

It depends??? How much $$ are you wanting to part with??

Myself, I'd go with the 90STD and save some cash. It is more than capable of flying HARD 3D. The only issue is that some of the plastic parts wear a little fast for 3D.

The 90STD should be ideal for a scale project. Unless you just want to spend the $$ for the metal parts. Some of the metal parts will not wear as fast and add a nice bling factor. But as for the bling of an SE, you will be shoving most of it in a scale fuse, so what is the point.

If you go 90STD, I would think about upgrading to the TT, QUK or one of the other major name brands of headblocks at some point. I'm not a fan of plastic headblocks on these big machines.

As for engine. I'd hunt around and find a YS.91. The tend to be much easier to tune and run cooler than the OS's. Running cooler will be a MAJOR factor in a scale fuse! Beside the YS is pretty much a tune and forget engine, the OS (which makes slightly more power) is a tinker's engine.

Don't come off the throttle untill you see your GOD!

Thanks

Thanks for the input Blake that's what I wanted to hear. I agree with the head block to I thought thats a lot of stress on a plastic head for such a big bird. For the price of upgrading the head block I would be around the price of an se with the price of the heli. Still have to decide to come off the wallet for the extra money I guess.

Since the mechanics are going to be fitted into a fuzz - I'd spend the extra dollars and get the SE - The main reson being (as mentioned) Wear & Tear.

You do not want to be removing the body too often, so I'd opt for the longer term reliability of the SE (wrt Wear & Tear etc). Being a fuselage enclosed heli - Aim for RELIABILITY over everything else....

As far as the motor is concerned - I disagree a litte with Blake,
I'd opt for the newer/current OS 91SZH (non pumped) or 91SZH-PS (pumped).

The SZH OS motors are pretty well set and forget. OS have sorted out the issues with the earlier 91s (SXH, C-Specs etc), and now their OS91SZH's run really well and reliably. The SZH series produces a little more power than the YS which will be an advantage with the extra weight of the Fuzz hanging on the mechanics.

I think I'm leaning more towards the SE now. Seems like I would end up putting more money into the std in the long run. Still unsure of what motor though. A little more research on the motor and pipe, like I said it's going in a fuse so I want it to run cool. Thanks Costas
