I have made my decision
well I have made my decision on what I am getting.I look at it this way,you only live once,you may die tomorrow,so you have to enjoy life.I work hard so I'm gonna play hard

I am getting a TT E550 AND a RAPTOR 50 this winter,although I have heard rumors of a new 50 from TT comming out so it may be that,but either way...I'm getting BOTH

Why don't you just get a T-Rex 600e and a 600n? Team Avant

Save your typing fingers. Fender's one of our resident anti-'Rexers. We just can't get him to drink the Kool-Ade.

The wink smiley face was to imply sarcasm. Of course I know fender hates T-Rex's!

the 550 airframe may be here next week,I have a bid in on one and if no one gets it by friday its mine,I'll do some research and pick up things as I go,no hurry,it may or may not fly this season

the 50,I'm thinking get the airframe and motor by christmas,build over the winter(jan/feb)and be ready to go when the weather breaks in late march or april

yeah I figure whats the hurry,I've only scratched the surface of the performance of the MT/HBK and I have plenty of batts and just tripled my charging capacity,so work on my skills with what I have now.take my time and pick the best components for each heli,piece by piece.Building the R50 over the winter will keep me from getting cabin fever this winter,and by spring I will have 2 new kick ass helis,ready to go

and by then the price of nitro will most likely come down as production will be in full swing by then.I think a lot of these guys think as soon as the olympics are over the nitro spike will dissappear overnite,but we are the low men on the totem pole as far as that as medical/agriculture and NHRA will problably get the initial production batches,so it may be a while before supply/price is back to normal,but it will come back

If you have never flown a TT 550 you are in for a surprise. I was blown away when I first fired mine up. Talk about stable!!! worlds apart from the 450Rex Mini HBK2 etc.

Some people that hang around here don't even have an ESky product any more.

Thing is, this is easily the best group on RR.
You get help regardless of brand, and don't get flamed for asking a dumb question or told to search RR or google it.
The responses come fast as well, my last trex question generated a bunch of answers and the issue fixed in no time. I am still waiting for the first reply back over on the Rex forum.

I have TT E550, Nitro 50, Rex450, HBK2 and I hang about here because there is a great bunch of guys here. Where else do you find someone offering to send parts free of charge and pick up the shipping to help a fellow pilot out?.

I think nitro madness has it.

In the recent past,

1. Fender's buying one
2. Tryan's buying one
3. I JUST bought one

Who else?

Hey Im not buying a nitro anymore. It was mailed out yesterday I am officially a owner of a align and thunder tiger product. Take that fender. My raptor30 is on its way bought a new airframe never flow with OS motor broke in in another heli. And it was actually cheaper than what I paid for my TREXSE.

Now who's gonna tell my wife.
