was wondering if anybody flies their spec g 3d or anthing like that? or any gaser for that matter. i have the local "expert" here trying to tallk me out of getting a gasser cause he says it cant do half of what my fury does. well i cant do even a quarter of what my fury does so i say who cares. i told him people fly the spec g 3d before i really checked. oops. owell.

he says well the simulator they dont fly worth a crap and its almost exact in flight characteristics so they must be crap. and then goes on to say that he never sees them in competition. well its a good thing im no where near competing!

Raja (rbort) flies his Spectra 3D. Malorie flies a Bergen 3D. A Gasser will never fly like a nitro, but you can do most manuers. Tic Tocs may not be pretty either, but you can fly all day for less then $3.00. Also they tend to fly better in the wind as they are heavier and more stable.

Hey,

I have hammered my 1005 through all the basic 3D stuff... it responds a little slower, and it is definately heavier!! lperagallo is right on the gas though... so if you arent crazy about becoming the next World 3D champ, gassers are awesome IMHO!

It's not just good... it's good enough

tell you what, i couldnt becomt the next champion if my life depended on it.

i am sold on the gasser.
i have come to the conclusion that the guy trying to talk me out of buying a gasser is just jealous.

i have had 2 gassers and i fly 3d.you just need to consider the extra weight when flying its not a bad thing but you need to adjust your flying style.saying that i was swapping between that and a r50 with no probs.you cant beat a heli with a real petrol engine in i love both helis for different reasons.take a look in my gallery.

I've seen some gassers flown pretty hard. But you also have to consider the skill involved. The only ones I've seen were by excellent pilots not your everyday types. You know the type that can make a 30, or a 60 look like it has GOBS of power.

They have a bunch more inertia than a similar nitro, and the power to weight just isn't the same. There is some video of Curtis flying one, HC and a few others. They get flown smooth 3D vs. a more dramatic stop and pop style.

It also takes a pretty large pair to 3d one down on the deck. It's not like you are going to get away with a cheap crash if it goes in. Lots of mass and torque to break things. I've wanted to go there more than once but always wonder if it would be a hanger queen.

But you can't beat the run costs.

Crashing is expensive.....at least for me. The blades alone eat up a "C" note pretty much. I do love it for the smoothness and the different kind of power that they have. I can do basic aeros and a little inverted. I did have to get used to the weight though. It takes a bit more space to get it slowed down. Autos are nice though.

so are autos harder or easier? seems they would be harder. but the weight would keep neg pitch go faster?

Autos are great. The blade speed is easy to keep up...because of the weight. You can get pretty good hang time at the bottom. It doesn't take quite as much negative pitch to keep up the blade speed.....so it doesn't really come down any faster.

Gasser 3D

I would suggest showing the 'expert' some of the vids of gassers doing 3D. A year or so ago there was a vid of Curtis 3D'ing a pred gasser. There's also a couple vids of Tal Fowler flying his Predator gasser that are pretty impressive. There's another guy too, Rodney something that there were some vids posted of I think. From the ones I've seen, esp Tal Fowlers, I think it's safe to say the gassers (at least the predators) are more than capable of 3D. They're not quite as lightning stick banging fast as a hot 90sized nitro ship, but then what is?
I've not seen any vids of Spectra doing 3D, but I see no reason why they wouldn't be equally capable.

If you end up buying a gasser don’t let your local expert anywhere near it when it comes to setting it up, you need to work it out for yourself.

Totally!! I let a guy on the field try and mess with my needles and it took me a month of Sundays to figure it all back to where it was supposed to be HAHA

I love how my 1005 autos... my fury 90 falls like a rock in comparrison.

I agree with the group, nothing good would come out of thundering in a gasser... I would venture that there wouldnt be much left. I am way more comfortable near the deck with my nitros as opposed to the gasser. It takes just that little more time to respond, and well... I generally am just that little more behind it HAHA

Cheers

I love my Sectra G (ooohh , that sounds weird...) but if I'm going to do any 3D or inverted (which I'm not, at least not intentionally) I would go back to my Century Hawk Pro, cheap to repair...

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

FIXIT your absolutley right, i am done letting these guys around here mess with my stuff. although there is a couple peopleon here i talk to on the phone that really know what they are doing.

i did see that video of curtis youngblood flying a little 3d with a predator. it wasnt a 90 nitro but it was more 3d than i can do. now i just have to find a spectra to buy after i sold my fury. im heli less at the moment...

Speaking of "experts". I had to go by a guys house the other weekend and set up his Raptor.....that had supposedly already been set up by some "experts" at a local hobby shop. Man am I glad he didn't fly it before I had a chance to look at it.

Everybody that has a weedeater thinks they are pros at gasser setup.....I found out that isn't true....cause my weedeater runs great, but I'm still learning with the G26.

Gassers cost LESS, not more!!!

When are you guys going to start thinking positive about gassers?! Everyone says they crash harder and they cost more to fix because of their weight...anyone stop to think that they actually SAVE you $3 to $5 for every flight you make and that savings is money in your pocket towards crash repairs?

Let me say it a different way. The guy who is flying that 60/90 size nitro is happier when he crashes and there is less damage on his machine because its lighter right? Wrong! He has been paying $3 a flight just to fly that thing, but, he doesn't feel it as its part of the process, pay to fly.

With gassers, you save when you fly, and, if you can muster 100 flights without crashing well then your next crash is already paid for from you piggy bank savings ... almost like "free" as if you flew the nitro 100 flights and crashed cost is $300 for fuel plus $200 for crash parts = $500 total. Cost of crash for a gasser is $300, but wait a minute, you saved $300 getting 100 flights on it, so total cost of 100 flights including crash is $ZERO!

Say it...

Gassers are CHEAPER!!

I recently bought a spectra frame set and used most of my fury Expert parts on the spectra, I just need the clutch and Zenoha engine and it’s done, just somthing to think about.
