What's up with the plastic canopy, belt tail, and plastic fins is that there are enough 50s out there that are ridiculously configured with carbon everything, tube tails, and FG canopies. A lot of us don't want that in a 50, I don't want a minor incident to involve $100 in parts before I even buy blades, and more important to me beyond the cost is the time it takes to repair helis like that. A nice plastic heli with a plastic canopy and a belt tail takes no time at all to build, repair and work on.

Hirobo has always offered TT tails, upgraded fins, and FG canopies for those that want them. Keep the standard kit with the simple, durable, and inexpensive parts that work great and let those that want to buy bling do so, but don't force it on those that don't.
agreed 100%. Nick this IS the point here, very well said.

oh, and show us some more pics!!

Quick thought

To the MRC guys. Throw some video of this machine our way. I love the Evo (own 2) but we never have seen this bird really pushed through its paces on RR. With the SDX, punish it. Beat the **** out of it. Show us what it's got. We all know that great pilots can make anything look good but seeing it in action would be great.

As an Evo 50 fan, I'm rooting for you guys
My 2 cents
