damn good question. the aurora is lighter has more tuning options out of the box, but it didnt fly any different than my N9 , but my flight was only 3 minutes long. it sure is nice to look at. so where do we go next?

Synergy really should get to work and make a Synergy 50. I have heard they are going to and I have heard there was no plan so I don't know, but I for sure would get one.

airboss, have you had any failures or reliability issues??

What i'm trying to say is if it's working well stick with it, buying something different brings a whole new load of issues, that is unless you want to change for change sake.

Droid , my N9s have never had any problems that werent caused by me.this is a builders hobby and it would be nice to get more variety without the usual crap. I wont spend my money on a kit that has no support or substandard parts. but it would be nice to see a couple more mfg's step up and box some new helis and not those pesky little 450s or 500s. WTF where are the gasser mfg's and how come they dont get their act going?

Good point, especially at the moment with the nitro issue, a gasser kit would certainly be appealing. Maybe the 700N with a gas conversion will pave the way?? It's certainly light enough to start with....

Go flybarless or if you want to go off the deep end. Try a tandem rotor. I kinda like the building aspect too but the budget holds me back. Judging by your gallery your in a position to try some more stuff. I think between the two of those it should keep you busy for awhile. Tandem fascinates me for some reason. Hell, you can even get the Hirob kits prepainted for those that don't want all the related scale work.

One set of helis that are actually pretty nice (oddly, the most numerous .90 sized model I've seen in my area) is are the various helis from Bergen.

I've flown a glow intrepid - it was a nice heli, smooth and tracked like it was on rails.

I've seen quite a few Bergens - gassers, glow, and turbines. I haven't seen the electric Bergen yet... The quality has always seemed top-notch from what I've seen.

The nice thing about the Bergens is that there are models designed specifically for the power source - ie. gasser versions, glow versions, turbine versions, and electric versions. The kit is designed for the particular power plant; it's not a conversion of any kind.

My experience with the company isn't bad either - I've met Chris Bergen, and he was a nice guy.

That being said, I did choose the N9 when I was in the market for a new heli a month ago... But if I were to get a gasser, it would probably be a Bergen.

Even if you look like a freak trying to pull-start a heli... It's hard to argue with 40 minute flights on a single tank, for about one buck's worth of fuel.

Well, actually it is easy... that's a long time to be at the sticks without a break.

The last thing I want in a heli is a few loose screws.

airboss, it also depends what you want out of your flying, do you want a 3d capable machine??

the heli has to be capable of some 3D stuff and good 3C also.

How about a Spectra Gasser? 3D gasser all the way.

Check out Min Air's website to see the most current configuration for example the flybar carrier is changed to the stratus type now. You can also download the manual from there to see if you like the design.
