I've been wanting a 90 for a long time. I had a stratus, but hit some financial troubles and never got to fly it. What are the differences I will notice when I step up to a machine like the Aurora? I've been following this machine since all of the release issues. I just really want to know if a 90 machine is worth it. If it is would I be better off with a 700N?

compared to my Mini titan SE
A lot bigger, noisier, smellier. 20x more power.
and my Raptor 50SE?
A lot bigger, noisier, smellier, 10x more power.

The Aurora flies extremely crisp & accurate. Very clean, very smooth.
If you've never flown a 90 before, they have a ton of power and can get away from you in a hurry.

One of the great things about the Aurora is the customizable head allowing you to easily set it up from Mild to Wild, whatever you desire.

It's a very fun helicopter to own, but like any 90, you won't like it if you crash it.

In the end, it all comes down to flying what you want.
And you get what you pay for.

10x more power....
Not really. The OS50 Hyper puts out almost 2HP. The OS91 is in the 3HP range.

That's 50% more power, not 10x even if it feels like 10 times the power.

Not really fair to compare a 90 to a 50 or even to a micro/mini....

But that's just my opinion...

That is a good question. But, we don't know how your mini titan or your Raptor are set up, or how they fly.

In general a 90 will out fly a 50 will out fly a 450, will out fly a blade CX, will out fly a blade MCX.

In answer to your question:

1)a 700N is a 90 sized machine.

2)a 700N is cheaper to repair than an Aurora

3)Is a 90 worth it, depends on you flying skills.

I just wanted to add that although I fly 50s(raptor,600N,Vibe), I have flown another mans 90.

So let me ask some questionsSelf Q&A)

1) Can you afford it? sounds like you may be having some issues here.

2) Will you notice a dif? Yes, They are more stable, have more power, and auto better in general.

3) Do you NEED one? IMO, no. Unless your going to enter the 3D masters, then it is a must.

4)Why are you asking? This is a question that (IMO) if you have loads of experience you will understand. It's like the guy who asks if he needs a better gyro (but all he is doing is hovering), as opposed to the guy who says, "hey, my tail keeps blowing out, do I need a better gyro?"

5) Why a 90? ________ fill in the blank.

Either way good luck.

Aurora is one thing, all of the equipment you load in it to make it super fast and agressive is another expense you have to deal with.

So would I notice a huge difference in the raptor 50 if I switched my older servos out to 8717s? The ones in it now aren't that fast. It seems to lack the performance I want. I always just blamed that on lack of horsepower.

The top Pros have their helis equipped with top notch electronics.

I have 9252s and my R50SE flies really well at 5.1v. But I noticed a huge difference when I flew my Stratus with 9451s at 6v.
So my R50se will soon be fitted with 8717s upgrade.

Yo heard it from the others, the Aurora is also like owning a Ferrari. Not perfect, but a whole lot of fun and a gorgeous machine, and not cheap if you crash it.
What are the differences I will notice when I step up to a machine like the Aurora?
If setup correctly, a huge YES. Remember the programable head has many flavors in it, you need to find the one that suit you the best.
I just really want to know if a 90 machine is worth it. If it is would I be better off with a 700N?
If you are beyond tic tocs, stationary flips and can fly around inverted with confidence, yes. BUTT if you crash often, and you still want a 90, the 700 is for you.

I have both, the Aurora and the Trex 700N. And I have to say, the Aurora beats out the 700N. Both machines are fun to fly! Their both 90's, they drink the fuel!!! And they have a ton of power, but that is where collective management comes in.

As for cost, I sank close to $3,000.00 for my Aurora. I spent $2,100.00 for my 700N. The only differences between the two are main blades and servos (S9451's vs. DS610's).

Should you get a 90 size machine??? Only you can answer that question. Can you afford one, with everything needed? Can you afford the fuel, about 7 flights per gallon? Can you afford to fix it after a crash?

The power is great! And it can get you into trouble fast! So if you really want a 90 size machine.....I would say start with the Trex 700N first. And if you like it and want MORE, sell the 700 and get the Aurora.

Just my 2 cents worth.
