First off, this is my first 50 size heli, my others are a Freya and two R90SE's. I went to our field today and after flying my R90SE for two flights I had time to run two tanks through the Trex 600N at a rich setting. I was amazed that I didn't even need one click of cyclic trim, the heli was just hovering solid and the blade track was spot on. Normal mode felt quick as if I were in idle up!(I actually looked at my switch just to make sure..yep) After half way through the second tank, I turned the needle 3 clicks in...still rich, at about 1.5 turns out. Right now my idle ups are at 1700,1800 and 1900.

Damn!!!

This baby is Quick!! The sun was almost down, so I just did some upright funnels and power climbs etc. Can't wait to dial it in and put it through some 3D. I want to also give 'Finless' Bob props for his excellent build/setup videos!! Thanks

Thanks,

Michael

Yes, 50 size helis can really rock.

I found my Century Raven 50 to be much like a 90 on cyclic steroids, yet solid in the hover and tracks like a pattern plane in FFF.

You'll progress faster with a 50 = less pucker factor.
