They all work fine. Just get the one that is the easiest to source parts for.

E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

The Pantera has been around, is durable, great flying bird, and has great parts support. Not to mention great support from Audacity

any of them are going to fly, look for something that is not going to be hard to find parts for like synergy, align, sab,

If you are looking at nitro for the flight times you can get more flight time out of an electric helicopter just hovering.

60% of the time, it works every time!

+1 Electric

I know, you are asking about "which nitro", but the writing is on the wall. Nitro's are a dying breed. It is almost all electric. IRCHA did not have many nitro flying in competition (if any). Electrics have the same if not more power; flight duration about the same as nitro (you could maybe get more flight time with a gasser), You don't need all the support equipment you would need with a nitro; glow plug battery, starter, fuel, fuel pump, etc. No mess at the end of the day. No clutch, adjusting the throttle, needle valves, etc. Nitro fuel will run about $20.00 to $25.00 / gallon, and can't be shipped that easily, so shipping charges are high, unless you can find some for sale in your local hobby shop.

I used to fly nitro planes in the past; I was out of the hobby for a while, and when I came back, electrics had really come into their own. All my heli's are electric. They actually sit on the top shelf in my clothes closet. You can't do that with a nitro.

Overall, for just flying around, you will have a lot more enjoyment with less hassle with and electric heli. If you really want a nitro, the selection is very slim for new models. There are plenty in the classified sections if you really want them.

I enjoy flying both nitro and electric. I would go with an os50 hyper. They released a new version of the hirobo SDX.

You don't need all the support equipment you would need with a nitro; glow plug battery, starter, fuel, fuel pump, etc.
That is true if you were to have multiple flight packs but for flying all day with electric your going to need a geny, power supply and expensive charger. I don't fly all day anymore (kids!) but when I did it would get a bit tiresome with the geny and the charging equipment and keeping track of whats charged and what isn't etc.

I fly both and for my nitro I have a plastic moulded case that houses a 3L fuel tank, electric fuel pump, starter and glow stick (old school!) so I carry that and my heli with my TX case under my arm and im good for around 40 minutes air time. I would need to carry 20 6s 5000mah packs to fly the same amount of time on a 700e.

60% of the time, it works every time!

I know I love it when someone says nitro needs " all that support equipment "
a starter, a jug of fuel an extra rx lipo and TX and I'm good for the whole day.

Any helicopter can hover well, it is all in the radio/electronic/mechanical setup. Hovering gets a bit old after a while. Nice forward flight will possible.

Get some help with your setup and you will be fine. Just set up good low rates and not much negative pitch.

On board glow and a big 2s lipo. Plus the rush of a screaming nitro on the pipe. Ahhhhh. You either love it or not.

I'm just getting into nitro this next season and after consulting many in this hobby I decided to build a Synergy N5C (600 size) with an OS 55HZR engine. It's a very nice kit!

Poison

If we were talking about poison, electric would be cocaine, nitro grass and gas booze. Having said that, to answer your question, I would go for a nice Hirobo SDX SWM OP SSL-II available now from Jeff Green on Hirobo Fan USA.
