I'm flying about 6 months now and am planning on buying a 60 size heli to add to my fleet. I really like the Fury 60 expert. I know this is on the more expensive side off the 60 class heli's. Talking to my fellow club mates they say I would be mad in purchasing a fury for my second heli and reckon I should think on the lines of a less expensive models like the Raptor 60 or the sceadu 50 were parts are less expensive to buy. What are your taughts on this considering the Fury expert is one of my all time favourite models.

Thank
Niall

Fury 60 is a very good helicopter.

Running cost wil be higher.

I think this character have both good and bad side.

The bad side is if you crash it, you need more money to fix it.

The good side is as you know the fixing cost is high, you will be very careful for all the details, if so, your learning curve will be more smooth.

Alan Flys his dads stock rappy 60 the same way. The only upgrades on dads heli is Fan and the tail fin clamp.

Fury 60 Expert for my second heli?

The Fury is an excellent choice for a second heli, that's the way I chose to go. I think if I had to do it all over I would have went with the Extreme instead of the expert. The expert flys just fine but you grow out of it quick with a .60 engine.

Raptor 60 is less expensive anyway you look at it. It flys just fine.
Wingtip says that it flys great because Alan upgraded his.... I watched Alan fly in England at the 3D masters and that is TALENT and more TALENT helped with a little practice. Alan is a super pilot.

Get what you want to get. Don't let the club control you. The people I used to fly with said the same thing. It was too much and beyond your skill level. They were wrong. I love my fury and wish I had a fleet of them.

Flying a 60 is different than a 30. Just take some time to get used to it. You will have more power and things will happen quicker. It is intimadating at first, but once you get used to it flying a heli will seem easier. In my opinion.

I have a Fury 60 Expert and I love it. It is the best flying heli I've flown. I think you will be very happy with it. It's parts aren't cheap but you get what you pay for. BTW, consider getting an extreme as it has roughly the same repair cost but you get lots of more power when you need it. Good luck.

The Extreme not only offers more power, but it also offers a better heli in the long run. The Expert and the Extreme look the same, but they definatly are not. I think for the added money the Extreme is the only way to go. I bought an Expert and loved it. When I stuffed the crap out of it I decided to upgrade it to an Extreme. I did it the right way, and left absolutly nothing out at all, I even added a couple of things. And let me tell you, the price to do it was sugnifigant. Keeping in mind that the Extreme was not even on the market at the time, if I were in the market today for a Fury, it would definatly be the Extreme. Oh and I to will say that my Fury is the hands down best flying machine I have ever flown. But I will also agree that the pucker factor of flying high zoot birds can tend to slow your progress down quite a bit. When you pay two or three $500 crash cost bills, it tends to put a little water on your fire for sure. That is why I bought a Raptor 50 V2. And that is what I spend most of my time flying these days. I still fly my Fury now and then. But for now, I want to learn on something that will not kill my bank account if I stuff it. Just food for thought.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

Get a 50

Hi,

Depends on your skill level. How far have you advanced? If your doing more than basic flying a fury isn't a bad choice, if your still learning, get a 50 sized heli.

I have a sceadu and a fury, and while the fury flies rock solid I have to agree with Brian that the 400+ dollar crashes suck. The 50 sized machines will do everything a 60 will, and only be half the cost in a crash.

Good luck,

Mike...

Good Judgement comes from Experience. Great Judgement comes from Bad Experience.

I know I want a Fury. The matter what arguments I hear on the both sides I always still want a Fury. As one guy said, if I went for something else, I probably wouldn't be happy and still wished I bought the Fury. One question, can I buy the extreme in a 60 size machine or do I have to buy the 90 size?
