I was thinking about taking the plunge and buying a MA Heli.

Ricks has both the Extreme for $905 and the Expert for $722.

If i purchase the Extreme what am I getting for the extra $173?

Will either kit come with the new open design tail box?

I know I don't need the new tail box but when buying a new kit I would like to see them include the new parts.

Can I run a 91 in the Expert?

How is the power on the Expert running a 61 motor?

you get the metal tail case, metal fan, longer boom, clipped axle, longer main shaft and the 3rd bearing block. you could run 91 but gear ratio has to be changed.

Fury Extremes
The Extremes will have an 8.18 of 8.45 gear ratio. You'll need to change it to 9.3 if you're going to use a 60 size motor.

I think for my level of flying, I'll go with the Expert with a 60.

One reason for this is I have a XSpec with a YS91 and use 680mm blades.
So then I don't have to stock different sized mainblades between the 2 Helis.

I am not really into hard 3d and I think the Extreme would be overkill in my situation plus the XSpec is already killing my fuel funds.

So I think a nice setup Expert will still fly good enough for F3C type maneuvers and some piro stuff just no tic tocs - maybe not as smooth as the XSpec but better than my EVO and R50.

One last question - does anybody know where I can download the Expert Manual - I have downloaded the Extreme Manual.

you will be surprised. you can make a fury expert or extreme as smooth as an x-spec if you wanted, all that is required to do so, is some heavier paddles, softer dampening, and some fai blades. the fury line of helis are very flexable, they can be an out and out 3d heli or they can be a smooth fai type heli.

if you really want a smooth flying heli out of the box then i would suggest you go for a fury tempest fai.

The Tempest FAI is my ultimate Heli - maybe someday......

At first I was going to get another 90 sized Heli but have decided to wait and go with a 60 sized Heli to be easier on fuel.

I'll probably make the Avant my next 90 sized Heli.

So can the Extreme be setup to run a 60 and 680mm blades without buying extra parts?

The Extreme seems like a stronger built heli than the Expert.

im not 100% sure but i think the only thing you will need to do in order to get a 60 size engine running in a fury extreme, is a gear ratio change to 9.3.
