YES!!!
Im hoping to get mine pretty soon, just waiting for Rodney to get it in.
Henry does an amazing job flying the helicopter.

I will be going the conversion route, converting one of my spare knight 3ds to electric.

Not sure where the name Kentic came from but I think there other manufactures using that name or somthing very similar.

Dx7 With Ion Power Supply. Why use anything else.

This might be good for those who haven't tried a big electric heli. Personally, I went from a Raptor e550 to the Knight 50 3D Nitro because I hated having to charge 6s batteries and wait like an hour for a proper charge and balance.

The good thing though about an eletric is that is a simple setup to fly. No having to tune, and get every simple part of the nitro setup peferct. I do miss that with my Raptor e550.

This new eletric Knight look simply balistic.

Looks good!

Perhaps the name is going to be Kinetic, not Kentic, or Knetic...

A 600 electric is too much battery for me. A 500 sounds great though, and when the Compass electric 500 is complete, maybe my Trex 450 is ready for retirement.

What an abolute treat that H.C. is flying the Compass line of helis. I haven't seen that much video of him flying before he started flying the Knights. His freestyle approach to flying is incredible, amazing, thoroughly enjoyable. What a MAJOR talent!

Must be a typical Knight to take a thrashing like that and look soooo smooth doin' it. How long has he had this machine? Does it handle pretty much the same as the 3D?

I wonder if Henry likes the electrics, or the fuel powered machines better? Personally, I sure like the way the new breed of electrics fly, but I've been flying fuel power so long it just wouldn't seem right without an internal combustion engine. Old school I guess.

I like Knetic, goes good with Knight of kourse.

Thanks for the kind words Jay. I must say I really enjoy flying the electrics, as much as the nitros. The only differencen is the power and flight time of my setups.

I usually have my electric machines setup for about 3 to 3 1/2 minutes of hard flying. I feel I can get 4 minutes with the Evo -Lite 4250's and 5 to 5 1/2 minutes with the Evo-lite 5350's.

I would rather sacrafice flying time for performance though. The Knight Electric is a awesome flying machine, it flys like the nitro but with tons of more power.

This has got to be the quickest machine I've ever owned.

And just think the kit with the same motor I was flying in the video sells for $400 from Rodney at Infinia Models.
