I've always been interested in possibly getting a gasser. It seems to me that if someone is wanting to learn to fly or advance their skills this would be a great option. LONG stick time is always a positve to me. And these gassers fly pretty fast and inverted. You could work on most maneuvers and perfect them then do your low deck mad 3d's with a nitro.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

hhmm

Things have been changing in the last year. I have never seen climbing tick tocks out of a gasser like the video posted till recentlly. You Still have the weight of a gasser of course. If you want super hard performance you will not get it and I suggest electric.

You can make a flybarless gasser as well...

or this smaller one (uses 620mm blades):

Looks like both can do more then what 90% of the pilots can.

I have been keeping an eye on gassers. It would be nice to fly for longer periods of time to prefect things.

The 700 is much easier to build and keep going, it's just simpler. It flies like an overpowered 50 with 700mm blades, really flies great. I have no regrets about buying it. The only real down side is every 8 minute flight costs $3-$4 in fuel. That same dollar amount will buy hours of flying on my Predator.
This is what keeps me from buying a .90.

I would hang back and buy neither, I believe things are going to change with engines very soon for all Heli's. The market is leading the engine manufactures to design high powered gas engines to fit in .90 size heli's . The Radikal is just the beginning.

I love the thought of the Radikal. I'm not a mad 3Der, I just like to bomb around, and the Radikal seems like a good model for that, with some ability to spice things up. Cost of entry is a little much, but maybe one day.

The Radical is more to a 50 than a 90

True, but it is my understanding that if you get the heavy duty version you can stretch it out to be pretty close to a 90 size. I would be pretty happy with the 50 size personally, though I would probably still opt for the heavy duty version.

May I recommend that if you are thinking of building it for 3D that you stick to the light version?

There are several posts on the Century forum regarding this.

Heck, I still don't know what discipline I want to fly when I grow up. Definitely true that the lighter the better if going for all out 3D. No real need to contemplate any of this beyond casual talking as I am not in the market right this minute. Still fun to talk about though.

Definitely a great idea to peruse the Century section.

I would get a gasser. I love mine and thinking about getting another one to add to the fleet.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
