Sorry to say hollywood3160 but I'm running a Hacker Turnado 470kv in my E6 on 12S using a Jive 80HV ESC and it works great.
Another of my friends is using the Hacker Turnado 470kv motor in his E6 also on 12S.
Have a third fried who is just now building his with the same motor and will be running it on 12S.

I own the Synergy N5. I have helped a friend set up his Trex 600N and
600E and flown them. I will spend the little extra money for a Synergy helicopter any day of the week. The Synergy is a great flying helicopter and can be appreciated whatever your flying skill is.

My T-Rex 600N was one of the best helicopters I've had.

I really liked how it flew. You can just beat the crap out of it and not care.

It's end came when one of the links on the head popped off after 400 flights. Wrecked everything except my electronics.

I have a Fury 55 now, and while it's a nice machine, I still think fondly of the T-Rex 600N I had. It took me from hovering to forward flight, to aileron tic tocs and piroflips.

I also have a 600nle I was looking at upgrading as well. Either to a fury 55 or a synergy n5c. How do those two compare?
Thanks

I think hollywood3160 is referring to the hacker esc only supporting 10s.
"Hacker ESC only supports the 10s"
as far as other motor I believe he is referring to switching from the Hacker A50-10L 580kv motor (meant for 10s) to the Hacker A50-12L 470kv motor (12s like many of us are running including yourself)

As far as choosing between the N5c, E6, or E7 They are all GREAT helis and you will not be disappointed with any of them. The N5c flys big and performs better than any other 50 size nitro I've ever flown (including align 600, velocity 50, vibe 50, fury 55, and vision 50).

The E6 on 12s has TONS of torque and is an amazing machine! It also flys very well on 10s. Just look up the video I posted of Mitch Pricer flying his E6 on 10s.

The E7 is the smoothest flying heli out of the 3 (IMO) It flys big air with such beauty and ease, and it can also get down on the deck and SMACK!

I own all 3 of them and really the only way I could recommend you one over another is "Do you want nitro or electric? and do you want a 50 or a 90?" lol Best of luck on your decision!

Synergy....... quality is Top Notch.. EVERYTHING fits perfect, and flies like you're in it/. I cant do any 3d, just a sp[ort flyer for the most part, but, after starting with a Rappy 50, To a Vibe 50 to the N5.. I wouldnt trade my Vibe or N5 for anything. (well maybe a Henseliet) (however you spell it) LOL

The Trex 600N is a good helicopter, but there a many machines that will outperform it (IMHO). I have not flown the Synergy, but even the, now discontinued, Knight 3D will blow the doors off of the 600N, from a performance standpoint (power to weight, stability, and agility).

I would look at the 3D Plus, the Synergy, and others.

Nothing wrong with the Trex, just that there are other things out there that you might like more.

Evan03, Have you ever seen this heli fly? Or had a chance to fly it??? I have over 300 flights on mine with original belt and I have not done any maintenance on it since the first few flights (adjusting tension as it broke in) I have never had any issues with belt slap or skipping, and I have yet to be able to blow the tail out flying hard 3D. Plus Matt has designed this belt to be 99.99% immune to static build up. It is impossible to say its 100% immune, but show me someone who has had problems with static build up on this heli.... you simply won't find it.

Yes Matt is designing a TT for this heli, but I will not be using it. The simplicity of the belt ROCKS and it performs just like a TT. Can't even tell it is belt driven!

I've flown a 600N exclusively for the past 5 years, but I'm also located around all the Synergy guys. Even though I still love my 600, I can attest to the amazing quality of the Synergy helicopters. They seem to fly bigger and smoother than the Align helis too. The only belt tail issues I've seen on them is with high powered E7 setups. On the N5 and E6 it seems to handle the stress just fine.

Edited for incorrect information.

N5c

I have to say +1 for Steve. I have a few N5's and a N5c and I came from flying Avants and TRex. If you so much as Look at a TRex wrong the Gears on the Tail are gone.

I have to say I have a Ton of Flights on both my N5 and N5c and have never had one belt issue!! and I can Honestly say I have Beat the Ever Living Snot out of Mine.. When Properly set up you can't even Tell it's a Belt. I have Buddies that have been flying since the 80's and couldn't believe how well mine flew and responsive the Tail felt ..

It comes down to Personal Preference, Everyone can buy what they want, I'm not going to Beg anyone to try it. You either will or you won't and that's fine. My thing is Don't sell yourself short if you have never flown a Belt Driven Synergy Product. It's not like the others on the Market, which make it "That Damn Good"!! regardless of what ever Brand/Model/Setup you desire to fly, Don't Knock it till you try it. Fly a friends and if no one has one give it a week or Two because someone will.. And please guy's, I'm just merely stating the Facts!! Nothing Personal at all. At the end of the day we are all here to have Fun!! Good luck in what ever yall choose.

I think if you are going FBL, the FBL unit you choose will have way more effect on the outcome of flight performance than the airframe it is mounted in.
I have built and flown the Furion 6, Fury 55, Align 600EFL Pro and Align 600N. I have not had the opportunity to try a Synergy yet.
I will admit that I am not good enough to tell a lot of difference between them. They all have their own personality and characteristics. My current favorite is my new 600EFL Pro. It presents very well for a 600 size and flies very fast and smooth even with the lowly 3GX FBL unit. It feels noticeably more stable and predictable than my 550E with V-Bar.
If the $$$$ isn't a big deal, go for one of the higher end helis. For the most part, unless you have a hell of a LHS, you'll be buying parts online so parts availability shouldn't be a big issue on any one you choose.

the advantages i see from the tt tail are faster maintnence and repair wich is what i like about my 600 le. if i crash its easy to work on.

ive knicked a set of tail blades on the concrete drug them in the grash and still my tt gears are like new

"I think if you are going FBL, the FBL unit you choose will have way more effect on the outcome of flight performance than the airframe it is mounted in."

This is, IMHO, somewhat correct. The airframe does also make a profound difference in performance, even when equipped with the same FBL unit and radio equipment.

Flying the 7HV and the Trex 700E, back to back-they do not feel the same at all, in the air (both fly very well, but very differently). Same with the 6HV vs. the Logo 600 3D.

Head geometry, disk loading, vertical CG, distribution of weight, and many other things contribute to differences in performance and control feel between different manufacturer's machines.

The V-Bar and the BeastX do have a different feel in the air (and this is a difference in feel, as opposed to performance). That difference has been blurred somewhat with the last BeastX software upgrade (3.08)

Stick to what you know for a while, you have already tweaked with the 450 and the 600. Those other machines are great in their own right but is like this, going to the camaro vs corvette analogy. If you wanted to get from point A to be B at the speed limit of 65 mph (65 mph being your ability) does it really matter in which one you get there? I have a Compass 3D Plus and a 6HV...I also have a 600E and a 600N and I really enjoy that 600N. It's simple, parts are super easy to get and it's very forgiving. Sure my 3D plus and 6HV are awesome machines but I really enjoy the trex as well. So I guess what I am trying to say is, unless you have money to throw away or are sponsored or you are a pro...You do not need the top dog. Just get what you like and have fun. Just my .02 cents

I run both a 600N and a N9 and love both for what they are. Even though it is not the same situation you are asking about as I refer to a N9, I can say that the synergy is easier to get setup, as it much more sturdy. However, I get nervous trying any new tricks on it, as the parts are much more, so that is when I grab the 600N. As long as you always have your 600N, make your next one a Synergy and you will not be sorry.
