Congrats, I remember my first flight on mine and boy was that fun and exciting. You'll enjoy this heli for a very long time, my other heli's besides my Avant Aurora stays sitting on the shelves a little more.

You'll be glad to know that the t700 can take a crash very well,don't ask how i know.Parts are almost the same price as 600 parts,and with all the metal parts damage is very minamal.
I love my t700,the flagship of my fleet,to be sure. I save it for special ocasions( when there is somebody around to show off for)

Century heli rep. To much power is never enough.

Hehe, weather here sucks still that's cold and had snow on Sunday with some wind. Having a 50 size nitro heli is a good one to have in your fleet because the 90 can suck your fuel up dry fast, while the 50 can go for about 10 to 11 flights a gallon versus the 7 to 8 flights on a 90, but is a whole lot more fun to fly!

Yes this hobby is very evil, but I love every bit of it even though I spend so much on it! It's a very addictive drug, I mean hobby.

Oh yeah, I managed to fly 3 tanks on the T-Rex 700 today and had to force an auto on the lake because I ran the tank down too far doing rainbows hehe

Jim,

Sounds like Alaska type of weather lol, I'm only flying 15% because that's all they have up here where I buy my fuel in Anchorage (city). A case cost me $108, I'll have the LHS order me about 12 cases for the upcoming winter so I don't have to always take the ferry to buy my fuel.

But I'll have some 30% PowerMaster fuel from a fisherman friend that's coming up from California that's gonna transport it on another friend tender boat in Seattle that's coming up here next month since fishing season is near by. That means soon I won't have much time to fly, but will see.

LOL, I'm only down to 1 gallon left So that means I'll only be flying my electric heli's only, this summer I'm buying another T-Rex 700 and converting it to electric flybarless since I have 10 6s1p LiPo's.

Sounds awesome Charlie so your getting a nether 700? I was wondering this morning how many 700s are out there there is 4- 6in and around Portland that i know and only one LHS that carries parts for the 700, any way looks like the weather is going to be flyable to night!!!!!!! Also i pay 27.00 a gal for cool power

lol, there's no one else that flies heli's where i live i'm like in the middle of no where, only way in is by ferry or plane.

yes, i'm planning on buying another t-rex 700 and converting it to electric which should be a really fun project! hope you get to do some flying today, i think i'll take my vibe 90 out for a spin today.

haha, you're lucky you can use 30% because i sure miss using it when i was down in hawaii for vacation, hopefully i'll be using some next month before fishing starts.
