I'm thinking about buying a 50 to supplement my Freya 90.

Should I buy the Evo or the 3D ?

What's the difference between the two - I have the impression that the 3D is "just" an Evo with lots of metal/delrin upgrades ?

Someone suggested that the Evo is a "new" design and that the 3D is not.
If so, what is so "new" about the Evo that's not included in the 3D kit ?

Suggestions welcome....

EVO has a new head design, then Sceadu/Sceadu 3D. The 3D has a half SZ-IV metal head, the things thats missing is center hub and yoke (it comes with the std. FZ-III hub and yoke). You are right about the delrin gears, it also comes with a carbon tail pushrod. Both EVO and 3D comes with the larger 480cl tank, 3rd bearing
EVO has a new formula plastic in the chassi (stronger) and comes with pushpull linkage as standard. Either you choose you´ll be satisfied.

I was under the impression that the 3D also comes with push/pull linkages - just with more metal parts.

Have you had a chance to fly both the 3D and the EVO ?

If so, which would you say flies better and why ?

Also - why did you choose the 3D and not the EVO ?

Worth a notice is that the Evo is about $115 cheaper (in Japan). With those money you can upgrage quite much of the new FZ-IV head on the evo. Noodles won't let me borrow (Since I crash too much ) his 3D so I can't say if it flies better then my evo. As he said, you won't be dissapointed with either of them.

Hi,

but what would you upgrade on the Evo?

Swash, washout or what?

I think I'll got with the Evo. You can get a 601 instead of a 401 in Japan for the price difference, I like that idea

Both kits costs the same (in Jpn that is), but the 3D comes without engine and blades (though the EVO blades was really soft)
I choosed the 3D cause Pontus (Kinghippo) choosed the EVO, and as he said, I dont dare to take his EVO for a spin (it might collapse or so due to bad building )

Andi you asks what to upgrade, a full metal FZ-IV head is around the corner (from looking at some doc. Jeff Green posted), might not be the most necessary thing, but maybe swash, washout and radius block.

Hmm and somehow damaen got me busted Its always nice to have nice things

Hmm, just get out there and do a comparison...PLEASE?!?!

What about weight ? Is the 3D lighter than the Evo or... ?

Hi,

radius block sound interesting, could you give me the part number?

I will go for the Evo and maybe change crash parts against shiny metal stuff...
Even tough it might be cheaper buying a 3D and getting the Evo frames. But then I wanted a heli that is cheap to crash

The EVO frames doesnt feel so much more firm. But sure they may be worth getting if the "old" ones breaks.

Metal washout (slide block) is #0404-731
Radius block is #0404-730
