Has anyone got to play with one of these yet?

I think the belt driven tail with spring tension is a long overdue innovation. I do not like shaft driven tails!!!

I've seen Matt's prototype up close and it's very impressive. My electronics are ready and waiting, just need the kit!

Needs to be nitro for the os37. Sick of electric helis now.

60% of the time, it works every time!

I saw one at IRCHA was neat, the tail ASSY looked to be bullet proof.

Why on earth would you want to go back to noisy, oily, hot,hard to start and tune droning nitro motors? In my opinion Nitro RC helicopters sound really bad.

Nitro airplanes sound much better as the exhaust noise gives some indication of their airspeed location and direction.

Hard to start and tune are the mirror opposite descriptions of the os37!

When you can 3d an electric heli hard for 7+ minutes and can fly all day without a £££ worth of batteries or a generator then I will forget about nitro.

A smaller nitro would be just the ticket. Just cram an os55 in one and stretch it to 556... That would be the ticket!

Looking forward to the 516 very much though!

What Richard said. I've never owned an easier to tune, more forgiving engine than the OS 37.
OS discontinued the 37 I think.
More accurately, I think Great Planes has chosen to no longer import them. They appear to be readily available elsewhere. $150USD.

What this hobby needs is a good .30 helicopter (with affordable and available parts).

I you feel this way about heli motors you should try tuning an RC car engine

Coming from earth bearing vehicles air engines are a breeze
