I need help!

Last night I dreamed of recieving a nice shiny new turbine

Been thinking about it for some time, I am keen on the Wren series. The promised 44 size is about to come out soon....which would suit me in some ways.

The Heli I have is a Predator gasser, but I would rather keep it a gasser and get another airframe the same size.
I see the MW54 is a popular engine, but for me it would be overkill...plus I would really need to buy the Condor Predator to do that engine justice.

It will be some way off yet, but I am keen on your views....in particular what its like to install and fly with one of these engines. Were there any hidden/unexpected costs? would I need to get another radio? my current set is a Futaba T7C 2.4ghz....I would be a bit loathe to upgrade really.

Quality takes........time!

Was it difficult to program the ECU/FADEC unit? I see that with the Wren engine deals that there is a unit that must plug in so that parameters can be set up.

I really am intrigued by turbines...I must say that the prices are good considering what you get.

With the gas start do you just fill up the onboard gas canister off a butane aerosol sized tin.....like that used by gas lighters?

Quality takes........time!

I have recently purchased a MW54 to put in a standard 90 size Predator. Not the gasser or Condor. You only really need the Condor tail boom.

Wren supply a kit which converts the Predator.

Build progressing nicely. No surprises.

Lots of info on Wren / Predator conversions over on HF.
