David, I am a newbie flier but I am an astute listener and observer. A 550 or 600 size is going to be the best overall "comprise" as far as usefulness. Nitro v. electric is your own option. My Trex 600 serves me well and I have put it in hard, VERY hard, a few times and aside from the typical stuff, nothing that wasn't repairable for the next weekend. Parts are cheap and avail everywhere.

As Johnny said, Grand RC is the Burger king of the heli world - have it your way. Build it the way you want it. And 10% off.

It's gone up since you ordered I'm afraid

Stock FBL Kit on Grandrc is $1400. I can deal with that, it's the $6-700 in accessories I need to pickup to fly that stock trex (case of fuel, tubing, fittings, glow stuff, AMA/Club membership, etc etc)

The problem is, I'm getting back into the hobby from scratch because I dumped all of my stuff (radio included) before going overseas

FUEL****FUEL****FUEL

It's getting to be that time again. Are you guys interested in purchasing fuel? I got an e-mail from Byron's. Fuel will be going up in spring.

We can do a group purchase again of Rotor Rage 30% master's blend fuel. We need an 8 case minimum and Byron's pays for shipping and hazmat.

As always, what ever it costs me I will resell to the club for the same. It typically runs $100.00 per case but will fluctuate by a few bucks depending on the quantity we order.

Let me know guys.

Oh yeah, thx helixangle, I hadn't even considered a FB. After all, you could always upgrade it to FBL at any point in the future.

I'll double check that option on GrandRC I've had a .50 nitro before and always wanted the "big air" of a 90 since then, so I'm not sure I'd be happy with another 50. I'll let you know.

Thanks all for the input, much appreciated. And Scott, if I get the nitro this evening, I'm definitely interested in a case or 2.

David,

We need to order it and then it gets shipped from Michigan (I think). Usually about 10 days from when I place order, but we need 8 cases first.

Sup fellas
Only thing new I added this year was a Raptor. I can't wait till the snow to melt so I can see the parts fly (mainly mine). I sure there is a poll on how long the Bergen will stay in the air for.

Anyone know what the best case for a DX8 Transmitter is? I've read reviews that say the Spektrum case either doesn't fit the DX8 or it's really low quality??
