I hope they support the hundreds of us that still have the older Xcell machines.. like the Pro2k and the fury xtreme and tempest.. I know most of the parts were interchangeable
But it would nice to buy new rather than scouring ebay and other second hand forums..

All The Best

Instruction for assembling your Xcell:

1. Get out your Dremel, grind and drill to fit.

Lol. You forgot step 2, ask about the need to mess with everything to get alignments etc correct and be told that you're the only one to ever experience that, or be told that it is a "builder's kit" that requires things like that and you must suck if you don't think that is awesome.

Building the older XCell models was quite a bit different than building something like a Trex or Goblin where you can almost just shake the box and when you open it you find it assembled

Most of the tolerances on shafts and bearings was very tight so it wasn't uncommon to need to polish them to fit. Don't remember grinding other than on the canopy. If you enjoyed building fine machinery, they were a lot of fun to assemble.

If you built them right unless you hit the ground they ran for hundreds of flights without developing slop or wearing out. The end of season maintenance usually consisted of only a few bearings. Folks like Raja are STILL getting hundreds of flights on them.

I never built my Min Air 1005 gasser from a kit but did build a Spectra which is much newer in design. The Spectra went together beautifully although it has ALOT of parts!!!

Mine are Pure Heaven : I'm a absolute junkie for precision and accuracy.

Like working on Jewel's. Their is a reason for the tight tolerances and the stacking of precision bearings / shaft's /pivot's / Pin's and Bushing's. Their Engineering was not stolen.

I DO NOT hose em down with Solvent based product either ! Their is a REASON ! I have OTHER Method's Nor any of the Plastic Bird's.

Better than autosol

They are definitely NOT a Flag on a Field :

If the Only Tool you Own is a Hammer - NOT FOR YOU

MA = Love is the Evidence - you have champagne taste it's MA - It's WHY ALL the other's have Cloned or Copied or Stolen their Engineering.

KUDO's to the Original's who put the time, sweat, engineering, math and measurement's and board work down too the machine tooling and production of countless thousand's of part's and up grades.

NOPE : Not Fantastic Plastic

Knew they would be back Let the Future begin

p.s. They gota market nich just waiting to be tapped out their -

Well after Grey's huge broad statement ,,I understand what he is saying. Beautiful as they were/are they were over engineered for their purpose because they were at the time cutting edge. There are much simpler ways of doing the same thing as well or better today. I like old mid 60's cars too. But to be frank ,,a nicely set up old Min Air ,compared to a new heli and an ordinary pilot ,,and the same power ,,they wouldn't notice anything different.
Add fbls to the equation ,,all things equal most wouldn't see any difference between a new heli and an old Min Air.

Modern helis are more floaty than the old ones and faster on the sticks. I think many can tell that difference. Style of flight has A LOT to do with what you need in a heli, though. Ironically, some big air maneuvers are better performed in a heavier model as the momentum carries them through it. For fast direction changes, however, weight sucks. Food for thought.

Whatever the new MA plans to do, they need to come up with a simple, modern and effective way of doing things. They have a lot of competition on the market and a lot of earning of trust to make up for with their recent history. I wish them the best of luck and I`m looking forward to see what they come up with.
