Hey guys,

I am debating between a 400 sized electric and a .30 sized nitro. Obviously the startup price for the 400 would be cheaper, but I am thinking I will progress quickly and want the power and stability of a nitro machine. I just got realflight g3 and after a few hours with 7 mph of wind and the Dominion .60, I am doing figure eights, FF in all directions, flips, rolls, inverted hovers, and tick tocks all under control...So, I'm thinking a Sceadeu would be the best bet over the 400 since I can keep it tame when getting used to it but really turn it into a capable heli when I am comfortable flying the real thing... The thing is, I want to spend less than 1100 for everything (including TX).

I was wondering if you guys had some specs I should consider in that price range and I'd like to have as little possibility for interference as possible with the TX/RX. Also, reliability is a concern. I keep good care of my toys but if something breaks it should be from neglect or misuse.

Also, there is the Sceadu Evo Alpha Combo from MRC for $950...but what do you think of the specs? The tail servo, muffler, and gyro look weak on that package...

You may want to consider a used 50. There is a gross difference in the way they fly and not much more expensive.

Find a used 9C and 401/9254 and get yourself an EVO 50 /w Hyper

The 50 will be more stable, more capable and more visible.

But I do agree with you, the Hirobo 30 package looks pretty tempting.

Get what Donkey said.

Spend a little more in the beginning and you will save a lot in the end.

The 30 and the 50 are the same size heli. The 50 will just swing bigger blades.

The 9C will keep you from upgrading your radio for years. If you get into scale you will need the extra channels. Also, if you use a GV-1 you can use 8 channels quickly.

Get the 401/9254 combo. While learning, it is nice to not have to worry about the tail moving around on you. One less thing to learn in the beginning.

Bigger flies better. It is not just a saying...it is the truth. The bigger the aircraft the better it will handle wind.

hmm
If I buy new from the local shop they will always help me with things, let me use their tools, and even help me with flying in their private field. I'll try and stop by later tonight to price up a .30 and a .50. I know I will never do scale, but I am sure one day (hopefully sooner than later) I will be getting into 3D and need a governer. Would 8 Channels suffice? On a basic setup nitro, don't you still only use 6 channels?

The 7C and the 8103 are light years behind the 9C and 9303. It will not take you long to tire of the 7C. I believe in buying once.

There is a gross difference in the 50 and 30.
