A negative opinion about something unknown is a clear view on how you look at ALOT of things. Some people have a first impression that BEGINS negative, and some positive, and some neutral (neither) until they find everything thing out.

Simple means when you find an uncomplicated solution to the problem,
Complicated is just adding more to what is simple, no need to.

The WhipLash looks like a simple thought out heli, like they thought we are going to use less to make it work just as good as all the rest, this looks TO ME as 1 of the top 3 90 size electrics out there, battling between 1st and 2nd.

Look at the size of the pinion ;-)
I think one reason is it has a 124T main gear.

Big Main Gears

What do they say about helis with big main gears?
From what I can see so far, this heli is innovative, simple,
attractive and a sure buy to try.
Which comes first the electric or the nitro?
Also what about the 550 blade Furion 6 will that have enough power on 6S to rock?
Bring them on, I think MA is for real.

You'll get people like that all the time. The guy putting it down must be an Align fanboy.

Band,, I did like the Trex550 I had, but there were things about it that annoyed me as well. Overall, it was a nice heli, but I have had 4 Align helis in my life, and I just don't think I want anymore. I like to be different at the field and have something no one else has. I would definitely buy a MA Furion 6, or this Whiplash. I tried a Compass for the first time a month ago and freaking loved it. Unfortuantely I own nothing right now due to finances, but hopefully by the beginning of next year I will have a heli again.

When u don't feel like soaring through the air with a plane, beat it into submission w/ a heli!

Does anyone know when the Whiplash is going to be released?
I've had many x-cell products and have recently tried others over the years and now after seeing this prototype - I think I'm in.

Looks great and robust.
Great quality,
Jeff

Probably pretty pricey like all 90's. I would guess $850 to $900 for the kit!

There are not a lot of pieces to the helicopter, so something tells me they will be able to keep the price down.

I asked Bobby about the price and he said around $1K, looks like a very nicely thought out 90N/E.

Spending money I don't have on things I don't need to impress people I don't know

Yikes.

A super simple and cheap to produce design should also have a low price.

"cheap to produce" relative to what?

High quality parts and high quality craftsmenship and a high level of QC costs more than you think.

I hate to tell you this, but no 90 kit out there is cheap. They are all pretty high in price.

I think ~$1k is about right. Competative with the new Rave 90's. Also, cheaper than a couple of German alternatives, and probably easier to get parts for as well.

At least lower current battery costs help a lot now. I remember 6 years ago spending as much for one good set of batteries for my Ion-x as the kit cost (~$1k for both in oz at that time).

Cheers,
TomC

I feel the 1k is right in line. The few helis out there that can go 200+ flights with out needing a repair for worn parts are over 1k for kits. And I don't mean hovering flights either.
(Rave unsure of because I have never owned one)

It's made in the USA! AND they pay there people a decent wage with some bennies. So be proud to fly it! I will be

I personally hope they keep the price down to $800, in line with the Aurora and the Rave. Still a little higher than a TR, but a little better also. I think if miniature puts it at $1000 they will get less response than they would at the Avant/Rave level.
