What electric 550 -600 class electric heli would you buy if you had to pick one brand that you feel wont dump and run like thunder tiger did.
Appreciate the opinions..looking for another brand.

I've had a few brands in my time, and the E5 Synergy in whatever iteration you choose is about as bullet proof and reliable as can be had.

I too have had most popular brands. All good machines but the Synergy E5 is the most versatile bullet proof, IMO

Well, you are asking about "dump and run", not best flying.

I don't think that any helicopter will have parts availability for more than 4-5 years. I think that Align is probably the closest to a long lasting brand name.

I know that I can still get parts for all my Align or Align-Clone helis. If you have a favorite heli, you should stock up on parts as you can, because nothing is forever.

Well I can still get the parts for my 7 year old Logo 500 3D and there is still parts available for the much older Logo 10, 14 and 400.

When it comes to Align there are parts for the original 600N so that is much more than 4 to 5 years old.

Never had a Synergy so I would from experience pick the Logo 550.

Audacity models has ALL other brands beat. Except Min Air maybe. Not only do they support their Pantera helis, they still support the previous tiger 50. no other brand can reach back 10+ years with parts support i dont think

Align and Mikado do.

Anyway ide also pick Mikado, after all they started the electric heli thing and are still going as strong as ever today.

Align will be around pretty much forever but I still prefer Mikado helis for their versatility and simplicity.

I doubt Synergy will be around for much longer unless they start coming out with new models.

60% of the time, it works every time!

+1 for Mikado. As mentioned in the 3rd reply on this thread, Mikado is going into their 27th year now..... and still innovating.

I see more companies producing replacement parts for this time frame these days.

My preference would be the Mikado LOGO, a nice, clean older L6003D or the newer L600SX.
