And....

Not a single objective and good flight report.

Just a bunch of cheerleader stuffs like "I love it" but no reason why.

Really I been looking N5 threads since it was announced looking for my next 50. I sold both my V3D to get one of those new gen .50. And to be honest at least on the SDX or V50 forums they talk about how they fly besides the usual "I love it".

I know it is a great design from just looking the pictures but how it flies compared with others 50 you have or had.

I have put over 6 gallons through my N5 which is equipped with BLS253's on cyclic, 9256 on tail, GY 520, S9257 on throttle, Stick banger blades, radix 92mm tail blades, OS .55 with Hatori pipe. I would say "I love it" like everyone else. . . not from a cheerleading stand point, but from a standpoint that it has most everything I like in a heli. The build is seamless, it goes together very quickly BUT it demands attention to detail, as any piece of precision machinery should. You fly it, and it has lightning quick cyclic (much quicker than my 12S Miniature Aircraft RAZOR), and lots of pop. Just when you think the bird may be a bit too twitchy, bring it down on the deck in an inverted hover, and take your hands off. It's stable enough to be an F3C bird, yet UBER quick. The price you will pay is it WILL FORCE you to manage collective. The blades don't like to phart (cavitate) they do what you tell them to do when you tell them to do it. . .if you ask too much of the head, it will bog, it won't fall out of the sky or anything, it just lets you know that you need to adjust your flying style or reduce some pitch. I am almost a two year pilot. I'm comfortable with the usual, tic-tocs, forward flight, four-point tumbles/rolls. . on the deck or up high, backwards flight is fairly comfortable, and I'm working hard at learning backwards inverted. I honestly feel like this heli has been a no surprise, do what you tell me machine. This is BY FAR the SMOOTHEST machine I've flown. I set up my link lengths accoridng to the manual, the blades tracked PERFECTLY, the pitch range was even positive, and negative, and zero fell on mid stick. So, I think "I love it" sums it up pretty well, it does what a heli is supposed to do.

Thanks !

Thats the kind of "I love it" I like and believe

How much collective are you running ? I noted Matt runs his with Align white CF paddles which are quite heavy so I supposed that it must be a quick bird but very locked in.

Keep reports coming

I'm running 13 deg +/-, maxed out my cyclic (didn't measure it) as far as paddles. . . the black align, they're supposed to be lighter than the white. You will like the bird for sure.

It flies alot like the N9 but quicker. Set it up using Matt's mixer settings and it's a beast. The rolls are perfect. I can roll up and down the flight line only managing the collective. No other inputs are needed. It piros right along the main shaft with no odd tendencies. Honestly it flies alot like the FBL Vbar Compass 3D+ I was flying. The way it tracks, flips, rolls, etc... is awesome. By far the best flying 50 I have flown (and I have owned them all). Mine weighs just over 8 pounds but you don't notice it in the air. Similar to the Vibe in that respect. I was so impressed and love it so much I'm building a 2nd and plan to sell all my Compass stuff. That in itself says alot since I have a huge parts stash.

What about weight RTF?

Many out there seem to like the Velocity 50 a lot because of quick cyclics and low weight around 200 g less than the Vibe 50 (which I have "abused" for two years and love it)?
So, could anybody state how the Velocity feels vs. the N5?

The Velocity does not feel as "locked in" in FF flight as the N5 and it does not feel as solid in the air. The V flies good and has quick cyclics but the N5 is equally quick however it simply has smoother flight characteristics and tracks better. IMO . The N5 without hesitation has better machined components and the electronics layout is by far better suited for ease of installation.

Problems ? -- Mine are flown in fresh daily

Thanks for that comment fr8brkr.
I am pretty happy with that and is what I expected.
Of course, setup is essential.
Hmm, seems to be somewhere around the Vibe 50.

Great reports ! it seems it has better CG than the Vibe 50. Looks like the engine sits higher.

Are the CNC grips really needed ? I've seen plastic one and they look beefy .

The plastic grips are no longer a option. Matt announced this on his web page.

Matt's statement: Plastic Main Blade Grips / Plastic Tail Blade Grips -
Both are discontinued! There were only 61 kits released with these plastic grips, if you have one them, throw them in the garbage! We would rather play it safe with metal main blade grips and tail blade grips.

They did. You just have to check with who ever you bought your kit from.

The N9 anti-rotation guide looks good on there. I thought about doing the same myself.

I would say yes. They are fairly tight when first put on.
