So I'm thinking of naming a nx4 "tax return" but had a couple of questions...

I've been electric for a while and missed having an engine, what sort of flight times do y'all get? I've found conflicting info on searches... Also is having a electric and nitro a pain? I like to stick with 1 Heli but don't know if I would want to carry my logo 500, 4 5000 packs and all that nitro gear along as well

Flight Times

Flight times will vary! You should get 6-7min even with the motor rich. That being said on the pre production tank I was getting 6.5min

Is that time with the reserve tank?

No I never fly into the reserve as it is just to keep the motor consistent throughout the main tank.

Also depends on the fuel you run too. Some fuel are thicker than others which require a richer setting. I run VP Powermaster fuels and it's a lower viscosity fuel. So I can lean the motor out and get better flight times.

Having a mix of electric and nitro is in no way, shape, or form, a pain. I own and fly both. Love 'em both.

So I think I am going to get one

My plan was to use align servos and maybe the ikon fbl

How is everyone powering it? Or are most getting the vbar and servo combo and just adding the motor?

I run beastX with Savox 1250MG on Cyclic and Throttle, and 1257MG on Tail. Hyperion 1450 LiFe battery straight up.

The combo is nice with High Voltage Servos!

I'm running Align 510M on the cyclic and throttle. A 520 on the tail, Align 2 in 1 regulator, and a Skookum 540. I am very happy with my NX4. I have not had a single issue. GET ONE!!!
