I'm trying to get into flying as easy as I can and like the 3pay option from Tower. Question is, is the Kindetic 50 worth it and able to have scale bodies added? I don't want 3D, just scale fun. I think I'll go to nitro as eletric dosn't seem stable and altitude holding easy as per other topics.

That's why I'm asking, researching if you have an opinion I'ld love to hear it otherwise that dosn't help much. I read that electrics don't seem to hold their spot in a hover as much. I would prefer eletric as I wouldn't have to go as far to fly though the price of getting a battery seems high but might be better than the hundreds of dollars I could spend on gas.

I've only starting flying this March and I could easily hold a hover with my T-Rex 600 CF and 450 SE.

My comment was based on your "misinformation"...hence the do more research.

Please provide a link to where you found this information on electrics not doing what glows can do...better.

I'll be happy to provide you with links to electric helis that have been used and WON 1st place in competitions against the standard glows.

Above that...links to folks that use them for "professional" aerial photography...where you need more than stable hovering but also less vibration for that kodak moment.

Now...does this help much?

I think where you were misinformed is that you probably heard that small electrics are very twitchy and harder to fly than their nitro powered (hence larger) counter parts.

Inertia in the main rotor system (blade size and weight, paddle weight) and control system setup (throws, flybar ratio etc)is what gives you stability, not the power plant.

indeed good point...thanks barracuda

I did not think of the smaller ones due to him talking about 30 size and above and not micros.

Best of luck!

Surgeon General warns : flying an Align Trex 600E is the most addicting thing you could do for your hobby .

having a raptor 30/50 is the best to learn on

Ive just started 4 months ago and Im telling you on a nice day with little or no wind the trex 450 is good but on the days with a lot of wind the raptor 30/50 does good in the wind, some times it will
shoot up with the wind and thats when you learn to whistle rather than fart, and you also learn to gasp

But Babe I brought it home from the meeting!!!

if you want an electric heli that's fine with me, but there is something that a fire breathing glow motor brings to the hobby that an electric can-not and never will, and that fire breathing glow motor will add that thing to your scale heli,,

Kinetic 50,,
if you want to buy the Kinetic 50 to learn on and then mount it in a scale fuselage it would be perfect for that, and it could be converted to electric if wanted, a few have cinverted their Centurys to electric,, the Kinetic 50 will bolt right in any Funkey/Century fuse and any Century 30/50 upgrade will bolt on the Kinetic 50..
