Just get a Hirobo EVO 90 and jon the club. It is a better replacement than a trex 600 or a raptor 90!

From what I have read it would be a couple of years before they came out
with a 90 if Todd was going to be the one designing it.

eggmcmuffinplz,

rhazbun was referring to quality of flight, not popularity.

I've setup and flown an EVO 90 and while it is an excellent machine, it is NOT as capable as a 600N when it comes to the balance between stability AND maneuverability. The only thing an EVO 90 has an edge over a 600N is hover stability and FFF tracking, and that edge is is quite fine.

This classified also says allot: http://www.runryder.com/helicopter/t373342p1/

I love it how you geniuses are so quick to succumb to a high authority. Alan Szabo could have won XFC with his old Raptor 90. Doesn't mean that it's better than the machine that the 2nd place finisher was flying. And if I'm not mistaken, Mr. Dominik Haegele was not flying a stock EVO 90.

Hoverking makes a good point. And Al, you must be a genious also as Hover really is a Heli-genious. I'm sure you meant that in the most respectful way. Go Noles!

To be frank with you gus, I wouldn't defend any helicopter. As people said here, they all fly, not better not worse, just different.

As for 90 sized electric, I think the weight of a powerful enough motor along with 3KW battery system is prohibitve to achieve similar performance to a 90 size nitro.

I put 60 size blades on my 50 size electric and it works but you could feel it needs already more power, while the blades are only 640mm, and I fly on 620 most of the time. And then I tried 10S instead of 8S and it was clear that a more powerful motor is needed, it actually was worse on 10s with 640 than on 8S, because the added power didn't outperformed the added weight for this motor. And better motors weight another 5oz more.

So it all adds up for no clear benefit.

My understanding was that Align is currently working on a 90 nitro ship already and early to mid next year is the speculated release date. They have most of the work done with the 600N. Just a matter of beefing the design up a bit in places and making some larger parts.

True that!

I though you was dogging my hero, Mr. Curtis YoungBlood.

Excuse me!

I happen to have good knowledge that a TREX 700 is in the works. Possibly next year.
