I have the Predator Max and love it. I also have the Freestyle conversion kit but have not got around to installing it yet.

Hey, where is eeeky or Furious Preditor? They have Freestyles.

I had a Pred and just swapped everything over. I love the comments on it... What is it, wow its light, thats a 90? In a world of Trex and Raptors I like being a bit different. I just wish the canopy would wrap the boom like it should.
Oh well

I love my Freestyle....i mean, absolutly love it. I still leave the predator canopy on though...personal preference, but it is the Freestyle converted from the Predator.
wow its light, thats a 90?
lol, yup! i couldnt believe how light is its either. and how slim. i painted an aurora canopy fo someone last year, and the aurora canopy was almost too BIG for the frame of the predator. i have a brick (4500 2S2P lipo) sitting in the nose, and its still super light...even impressing some of the hot shots around here. I think its amazing that my Freestyle...with a bigger motor, heavier electronics and battery, could still be 2 pounds lighter then my Vigor!!!

one thing i love about it being light, is it can do stationary flips VERY well....well...it does everything well!! with a heavier machine, like my old Vigor, your kind of lugging it around trying to stop it from free falling.

unfortunatly though, i stuffed mine in right at the end of the flying season. Overall damage wasn't too bad. Boom, servo gears...metal ones at that, skids, main blades and some links. But the motor and pipe took the brunt of the impact....not as bad relative to previous crashes with previous helicopters
I just wish the canopy would wrap the boom like it should
the Freestyle canopy wraps itself around the boom....But that being said, i havnt found a reason to switch to the freestyle canopy...even though i have one. I love how it handles as is. How fast do you really want those terminal velocity tail slides to be?

just like the Raven, its quick with the cyclic for sweet 3D, but at the same time, without even changing a flight mode or setup, it is stable enough for full throttle 160km/h high speed passes over the field without the fear of it pitching.

Here are some pics of mine in action, no videos unfortunatly though, maybe next season. Lots more in the gallery. The canopy you see in these pics was actually repaired from a crash. the nose had been ripped off (repairs and pait done by myself). but unfortunatly with this last crash....repairs are not really an option...i would be better off making a new canopy out of Bondo

FP do you know the weight difference between the freestyle and max
I have 2 and I just have not broken down to convert them. A big weight savings would push me over the edge.

sorry, i baught the Freestyle already converted over 2 years ago. So i dont know its origional weight. I am told that it is lighter then the Max...probably more due to the carbon frames vs aluminium.

but... since i will have to do repairs over winter, i will be gutting it and overhauling anything that i think deems it. so i could at some point give you its empty airframe only weight...this would be a good comparison to an empty predator, eliminating differences in electronics/engine factors.
