You know me. Wanted nothing but 90 size nitro's. Now, nothing but N5c. Fuel and fly, fuel and fly, fuel and fly. That heli, more than any other heli I have owned, has made me a better, more proficient, more confident pilot. I am "happy" when I fly it, feel less stressed, and enjoy the stick time that much more.

We've flown a lot together and you know I probably had the most progreasive, fun flights with a 450 because the main cost of a crash os blades. I also had a great time with the flybarred 600n I bought a couple years ago to get back in the hobby.

Funny how similar these threads are 7 years apart.

Just put the N7 on a shelf, fly the snot out of the 600N and reward yourself periodically with the N7. I am also thinking about getting the N5C. I have heard nothing but good reports about that machine. And you are correct about fuel burn. It is much less with the 600N than the N7. Gus has a perfect setup as far as I am concerned. He flies the N5C and the N7. Perfect combo.

Are you taking a step back.....No way!!!! You will be flying what you are comfortable with financially and that my friend is a big step FORWARD!!!!!

Kevin, I recently did the same thing for very similar reasons. I have had very little time this season for flying between family and work. I find that when I do have limited time to get to the field for a quick session I have been taking my old trusty Raptor 50 and that my 700's have been collecting dust. The Raptor will do everything I want and let me practice with minimal stress. Are the larger machines any more work or difficult to take? Probably not- like you said I think it just takes a little of the stress off and the $$ is not in the back of your mind. As a side note, I think the larger birds are easier to fly so if anything you are actually making strides forward and honing your skills for when you do fly the larger machines again.

I'd get a 50 and also start weaving.

I did almost same about a year ago, although it was a 700e. To a 600n. For me the 600n is the best trainning tool I could buy. Not a huge excess of power but enough to fly. I liked it so much I now have three. One for night and one as a back up incase I wreck so I'm no rushed to get parts. Now my 700e only flys when I'm practicing nats. Its helped a lot cause there is no cheaper to repair than a align 600n. So I'm willing to keep pushing my skills with it and when the dumb thing happens. It hurts way less than say when I crashed my 700. Other reason I prefer the 600 is autos. First size I say that autos good enough to allow practice of autos and allows wiggle room when practicing autos.
