What size heli do you guys prefer if you only had to have one? So far I've flown 450 to XLV size (collective of course) and each have their pros and cons and also fun factor.

I need to thin the fleet and was wondering what everyone else have sacrificed to? I know we can have as much as we want BUT sensibly what would you prefer?

This is a curiosity question as I'm not limited to where I can fly or noise or supplies. Just curious.

So flying style aside, what size would you like sir?

50 or 600 size for me.

Very stable, not twitchy, good in the wind and powerful.
Does not use a gallon of fuel for the weekend like a 90 size would.
Uses standard size servos, plenty of room for the electronics and a good size battery.
Easy to work on because it is not too small.
And easy to see when flying.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

I like the 450 Pro for keeping my reflexes sharp, my eShuttle (550mm) for good solid aerobatic (not 3d) flying. My eLama (3 x 530mm) for nice scale stability, and the presumed awesomeness of my 700e FBL when I actually get time to build it! Plus, I can get all of those in my car and fly 'em (or at least) hover in my yard. Oh, and the XRB Sky Robo Lama for indoors.

Bigger the better. IMO.. Eaiser to see in the air, parts are big enough to get a good hold on let alone seeing them..

Love the big ones. With electric I can finally justify flying a large heli for my main bird. In this case, Rave ENV with 710s. They are just much easier to see, easier to work on, and have a great presence in the air.

If I had to have only one machine, a 50 size nitro would be my choice but if I could have two, I'd have a 90 nitro because they fly better. 50 to try and learn new stuff, the 90 to truly enjoy them.

In the past, you had to have a 90 class to be able to fly full capacity 3D. Nowadays, technolgy has brought the performance envelope so close together that you can do full 3D even on the smaller machines like the 450.

If I had to choose, I'd choose a 90 size just becuase it has better presence and more power. There's nothing like tossing around a 90 in full 3D then shooting a perfect stunt auto. Even with all the new tech, autoing smaller helis is still harder simply becuase there just isn't as much rotating mass to keep your head spinning. Get your glide slope wrong on a 450 and that's it....you now own a high tech rock. Other than that it doesn't matter what you fly as long as are having fun

Now now, what kind of question is that ?

I can't stick with only one now that is is running in my blood

But seriously, my 550 and my 700N would be the last two I would own.

If it HAD to come down to one, I guess the 550 for simplicity, but then again I would miss the 700...but then...oh !! I can't.

550 and 700N it is ! Take it for what it is !

I think I prefer the bigger ones also but I'd like to try the 550 and 250 before I make my mind up.

I only have two now.
A 50 and a 90.
I really prefer the 50 because it is small enough to sling around my yard and big enough to see.

The 90 is more fun to fly but I have to haul it off somewhere to fly.

I literally never use the word literally right.

What I have and my opinion:
450 Titan - fly anywhere that's clear of people and have fun.
600 Align & R50 - Practice maneuvers and flying with friends often.
90 Align & Stratus - Wringing out known maneuvers and show-off with friends and events.

50 size electrics. Instant power, quiet, and stability in the air that can be flown at most soccer fields.

But if I were rich, I would buy a house on a hill side and "canyon fly" a TDR (90) for the rest of my life .... and that house would be located close to Hans' workship for access to parts

Couldn't have said it better myself except to say i would only fly nitro.
