Hi all

Just sold my Trex SE and looking for my next heli. After looking at many helis the Rave just stood out and has really caught my interest. Just wanted to know if anyone can give me some advice as to whether the Rave would work as a good sports machine for now, I'm slowly learning some mild 3D and just not sure if this heli would be over the top for a sport/learning 3D flyer. If so any advice on a sport setup i.e. motor,esc servos etc would be greatly appreciated.

I currently fly mine as a sport flyer and it is the best heli I ever had. I used to crash my t-rex all the time and I probably have 100 flights on my Rave and only one crash as a result of the gears stripping in flight (after tapping in grass). It is so stable and fly awesome. I run a slow head speed. I think around 2300 - 2400. It is an excellent choice. Just don't tap the tail blades in grass.

Hi thanks for the quick reply

Just one question are you flying a 4s or 3S setup?

I will still go 4S as you get more runtime, hobby king has 4S 2200 for 19$ each, so its lower amps on the 4s, so its easier on your batteries, and I get 5:30 min runtime.
