If you are comparing it to your Raptor 50 with the OS50, you will need an OS91 or YS91. The OS70 is so-so in my book.

As usual Al has it about right. It's the old story of how we got to the 91s. Just a few years ago there were 30 helicopters and 60 helicopters. Ok there were a few 46 powered helicopters but the OS 46 that powered them performed poorly and the helis were overweight so we can disregard them. Beginners flew 30 helis and the big boys flew 60s. Then someone stuck a 50 in a 30 size helicopter and the performance was amazing. Well the 50 was still a 30 size heli and the beginner wanted to be a big boy and so he bought his 60. Surprise! He found that his 60 did not perform as well as his 50 and the big boys found that they were being shown up at the field by relative newcomers with their 50 size machines. Also, the manufacturers of 60 size machines were worried that they would no longer be able to sell many 60s. What to do? You guessed it, cram a 90 in a 60 size machine. Now everyone is happy especially misters Cool Power, Magnum, Wild Cat, and several others. Do I feel the need of a 120?

I think the future will see the 30 and 60 machines drop from production, and the 50 90 machines will become the standard. I think we are seeing the trend now, where new people into the hobby, are opting for 50's rather than 30's.

True, the two new guys in our group opted for R50s

I would go with +10/-10º and loose those Mav blades.
