I can not choose between a 50 or 60 size bird..... Will I notice a big difference in the handling? Looking for some expert advice....

60 is more stable in the wind. 50 has better power to weight ratio.

I love my 50. I'd marry it but since Kerry got defeated it probably won't be legal in Florida anytime soon.

You will notice fuel cost rather than the stability of a 60/90 machine in the long run.
For all out fun with new faster engines, the 50 size is the one to have for daily use.

I'd go for the 50. I did

If you want something bigger I'd rather go for a 90 than a 60, same size airframe but again better power to weight ratio.

In my opinion the biggest factor is who much would you be willing to spend on fuel? As this will end up the biggest cost!

I find the 50 pretty good on fuel getting about 12 minutes per tank and a jug lasting about 8 or 9 flights.

The 90 on the other hand is a gas guzzler. I get 7.5 minutes and a gallon lasts 6 flights maximum

This works out to about:

16p per minute on the Raptor 50
45p per minute on the Fury 90

Still love the Fury though

I get 10 mins out of my os61 and it shifts faster than a rappy 50 I reckon it's got a bigger fuel tank so it will cost more to run. Parts are more too. I'd say get a 50 if your just starting out and a 60 or bigger once you can fly You certainly won't be disappointed with a 50.

True, 12 minutes is a bit short. Although I'm still waiting for some more figures on this topic (I posted this in some other thread).

For an os50 it would be normal, I think. My tt50pro runs 16 minutes (coolpower 15%), and it is *really* rich.

You think? I thought this was OK. As soon as the blades are up to speed on Normal I switch to idle up 1 - 1800 headspeed for the rest of the flight. Certainly not hard 3D but heli's in FFF and looping and flipping, prioing etc etc all the time. At end of flight backplate is a little warm, but not hot - so I don't think it's to rich.

I don't think I could get much more flight time out of her?

I don't know which engine you are using. Also, with 30% flying time is a bit shorter than with 15%. So for OS engine + 30% fuel it would be ok, I guess.

It would be nice to have a chart for looking up these things. Engine, % nitro, heli model, tank size -> flying time in minutes.

Yeah,

Im running OS 50 and Magnum 30%

Id like to see a chart of times as well. Someone on a different thread reckoned they were getting 30+ minutes on a TT50 Raptor. I didn't believe it but others reckoned they were getting close to this as well.

I know I'm too rich at the moment with my 16 minutes. However, I'm a bit afraid of leaning it because I toasted my TT70 the other day and thought it was rich (never very hot prior to this doomed flight on which it was really really hot all of a sudden).

Get a 50 to save on crash and fuel cost. Get a 70-90 later on.
