I even think Rhett has a Vario XLV for sale here, perhaps you can find a good price on that one...

understood
Have time on a 30 nitro but I find that my skills improve faster on a small machine.... I have always found that with planes and choppers.

A very valid point though. I will spend lots of time flying a cheap camera at first.

I am now wondering about keeping the red on the ground and flying a smaller hd camera if I can find one with a very solid 1080p image ....

Obin,
Good idea on putting a cheaper camera in the air.
I know a couple of others are doing exactly that, and well, who can blame them.

problem is camera image quality.... Once you shoot red.... Well..... It's hard to shoot "video" again!!

There are plenty of people that are flying larger helis than they should be flying.Putsome of these guys behind the sticks of a small 450 (or smaller) heli and they would give it a dirt bath in a second.LOL
Fact is the larger it is the easier it is to fly.
Also a fact that the larger it is the more it cost and the bigger hole it will make.

that's why I am flying this snappy little bastard! The bigger the machine the more relaxed I will be...... To me mastering a tiny 400 sized helicopter will make flying a really large ship so easy, that's my take anyway from everything I have ever flown.

reaction time has got to be 4x that of a blade 400 on say a g26 gasser, correct?

I would say your about right.Remember,even auto's are easier with a larger heli.

The main thing to be concerned with when flying a larger heli is the intimidation factor.It causes many people to 'think' they are actually more difficult to fly.Those are the pilots that need more stick time anyway.

And the momentum, larger helis don't like to stop on a dime (unless they are lawn darts, then they stop real nice ). They are kind of like big buses I also find on the big birds you have to think ahead a bit. With the smaller ones I'm just reacting to instinct

Oakley, that looks like a big Zimmerman exhaust on the front of that thing.

Sheesh. By now you're spending over $100/hour to fly that thing. You'd be better off with a full size R22. Personally not bullish on the Red. For something like this to be economical for a Calif* nano startup to fund it, it's free for a giant Japanese corporation to add it to the EOS Rebel design & put out a zillion units.

R22!!! I have done that... Hanging out the side like a total idiot with a red slung over my shoulder .... Don't plan on doing that much... Cost of my body, priceless.

I'll take 1 inch shards if red anyday over a bodybag

Who on earth finds it safe to fly in a full sized chopper is beyond me.

A 700 size electric will handle a Canon with ease.

Check out Copterfilms new chassis for the Trex600. Convert that to a Trex700 and you'd be set. Or even leave it as a 600, it will have plenty of power.

You might want to do your own homework a little. No offense, but you do not seem to know much about helis. Flying a camera rig around is not easy.
