Due to the overwhelming response to our first pepsi challenge, we wanted to open it up to all you EP flyers as well.

We have three new electrics:

Quick Fly: 1050KV Motor, 6S Li-Po 22.2V @ 4000mAh, 440mm-475mm blades

Quick Superfly: 750KV Motor, 4S Li-Po 14.8V x 2 for 29.6V @ 10,000mAh, 500-515-530mm blades

Quick Hardcore: 450KV Motor, 4S Li-Po 18.5V x 2 for 37V @ 10,000mAh, 600mm-620mm blades

So what is the point? The point is that our machines take a different approach than other electric helis. We have been doing electrics for over eight years now, and have found that our setup is the most efficient and most cost effective, here's why.

First off, our motors operate at a lower KV and run at 90% efficiency. Our motors provide high torque

and high power, yet run at a cooler temp than most other motors. Lower KV also means less draw,allowing the use of lower output batteries, so you can use batteries that are less than half the
price of batteries needed to run high KV motors. One of the overall best benefits is extended flight times. With our set up you can easily get 12 minute flights.

The reason for this post is that we extend our challenge to our electric series. We feel that our technology is well ahead of the industry, our electrics are one of the best built on the market, and
we want to extend a chance for people to find out for themselves. We think people will be both impressed with our helis and amazed with our technology.

Anyone with inquiries or questions please feel free to PM or email us.

Chris

I think this is a stand-up move on QWW`s part .
I don`t fly QWW helis , but I must say , their new stuff is looking way better than their previous generation of EP helis..
Now if all of the worthless bashing and counter-productive cry-babbies would just give these guys a chance, or second chance .
All of the bashing and crying gains nothing . Move on .
Good luck QWW

Class Act
To all who shall see these presents greetings:
I don't post much anymore because I've been what we like to call "busy" with family obligations (children and wife in a Masters program which actually feels like I'M in school again) and work. I've been reading these threads for 4 years now and I must say first off, that there are a LOTTA CRYBABIES in this ungrateful nation of ours. Opinions are one thing but GIVE ME A BREAK!

With that off my chest, I'd like to thank Irwin and Quick World Wide for being a class act with their restructuring and realignment. They don't know me from Adam (Genesis) but have extended this great opportunity to me. Heck, I STILL consider myself a beginner but they heli(s) I requested are designed to help from beginner to expert! AND, I must mention that despite all the arrogance about a particular staff member of QWW I've read about coming from other members both on this site and Groups, Irwin is really a down-to-earth guy who listens! THAT'S RIGHT, I SAID IT! I'd requested an EP 475mm due to the equipment that I am currently using and he suggested the FLY. After explaining why I made the choice I did, his response was and I quote from the email; "Hey I like your philosophy…Cool. Try the EP8." Does THAT sound like someone who doesn't listen to reason? I WAS FLOORED and I'm 6'4" so that's a LONG WAY DOWN! I'd read so much negativity about the guy and I've only had peaceful dealings with him over the years. I've gotten a few parts from them for my OLD EP10 that is STILL FLYING with a MODIFIED version of the BOX and the original FG 470s that came with it. All I can do is hover around and fly small circles but it's ONE SOLID BIRD STILL! It may be heavy and outdated but I LIKE IT because it's done EXACTLY what I bought it for; to train me! I had a Corona; sold it because I'm sure I just didn't and couldn't get it setup right. I've had a T-Rex and sold it because I just didn't and couldn't get it setup right. I've had a NUMBER of helis and kits but the EP10 was purchased 2nd hand in Aug 2004 and never left the ground until Oct 2007! It still has the same HS-225s in it that I purchased shortly after getting it. I don't dare say what other equipment I'm using with it because I don't wanna get flamed but let's just say I know I'm pushing the limit!

Anyway, my point is that if you have nothing constructive to say, be it criticism or compliment, just leave it where it came from; YOU! QWW has a fan and I'm not a client OR the president! Thanx Irwin and QWW for being a class act and having faith even in us LITTLE GUYS!

Respectfully,
Ken

PS After careful review, I see the FLY IS simply an updated EP 475mm heli so I look like the idiot and Irwin POLITELY agreed to let me look like one and offered what I asked for. So, see? He's not a bad guy afterall. I feel like a knucklehead but he's still a winner in my book. Hooked on phonix just doesn't quite do it in this instance...

It's better to have flown and crashed than to never to have flown at all.

Thank you
I would like to say thank you for the kind words. The fly does essentially use the same mechanics as the ep475, however it has been totally redesigned for great 3d performance, as well as to accomodate batteries that people may already have.

My 6 year old son has been helping me with working on one our our quick fly pro's. Honestly, he figures out most of the construction on his own by looking at the pics. I am there mostly to supervise and to correct occasional mistakes.(He isn't an expert builder yet!!) This is one of our easiest helis to assemble and you can be in the air quickly.

txkawboi, I think you will greatly enjoy the Fly, its a great heli for all levels of pilots. If you have any questions or need advice we are here to support you 100%.

MAN! Talk about rubbing it in... Your 6 y/o is building helis? lol I've got some SERIOUS work to do. I'm sure my supplies will work just fine with the FLY and considering a 6 y/o can do it, I MIGHT be able to "GIT-R-DONE!" I'm actually very stoked about the possibilities of this bird! I appreciate simplicity and this bird is sounding like it is "user friendly." I'm looking forward to the build!

Respectfully,
Ken

Not to offend
Sorry if I offended with the 6 year old comment, I was trying to express the ease of assembling this heli. He obviously needs some guidance with the head and tail assemblies, but he fairs well with most of the other parts. The cool part is he shows a high interest in how everything works. Maybe in the next few years he will be a QWW professional 3D pilot, or a new designer, who knows? So far he sticks to the simulator, a lot cheaper this way. He likes "stick banging" which seems to work for him on the simulator, but could get really expensive in real life!!

No Offense Taken
I didn't take offense at all. I'm actually impressed with the lil guy. My kids are constantly asking questions about my helis and they too love to play on the sim. My daughter, 9, is the steady one. My sons, 7 and 6, are the "stick bangerz!" I am trying to master all hovering orientations so the training gear is still on and I only fly around when I'm at the park, not the back of the complex! I have yet to crash but I'm not bragging either. I know it's not a matter of if but a matter of when! I'd love to bring my kids up to PA one weekend and actually plan to inquire about that later this summer. Maybe your son can give my kids AND I some pointers...? I'm open to anyone with knowledge! lol Thanx for sharing and for offering such a remarkable product and deal. To all nay-sayers, if you don't like it, leave it alone!

Respectfully,
Ken

Financial Shift...
We are in the process of moving so I've had to devote my finances to this effort. As soon as I'm able, I'll be taking the Pepsi Challenge.
