I am looking into purchasing a 90 Size machine; however with all the choices out there it is difficult to pick the right heli. I have read some revues about couple of machines, but it is still not enough for me to make a decision.

1. What I'm looking for is a 90 and 50 size heli that tracks well for good flight characteristics.

2. Machine that I can use for FAI as well as 3d.

3. And parts availability.

I understand that T-REX 700 is probably the least expensive and parts availability is no issue, however I have read few review’s and what people say is that the heli does not have a very good forward flight tracking habits. Now don’t get me wrong I think that it is a very nice Heli, however I am looking for more opinions .

Thank You
Bart

If you're looking in the 50 size I'd say the Vibe

Do you belong to a club? What level would you say your flying is at?

I've seen lots of guys fly Synergy N9's and the are capable of both FAI and 3D. I liked what I say so much that I sold my Raptor 90 SE and bought a N9. I only have 4 flights with it now but WOW. I was impressed starting with the build, parts fits like non fited on any of my Aligns.

Frankly in a .50 size I don't think you can meaningfully beat the Titan you already have, and certainly not from the standpoint of value. If you want a really good flying .50 I would say the SDX. It has the most precise flying head of the ones I have owned or flown. You will get all kinds of opinions from people saying the one they own is the best. There is not a world of difference between them, although they all have different personalities.

I tried to study this issue and research to find the best .50 for me. It just doesn't work that way. Its like buying golf clubs or skis, you have to try them to see what you like. I have owned or now own the Pantera, T600N, Frenzy (Vibe clone), Raptor 30, 50, Titan, 60, and Hirobo SDX. I would bet you would like any of them although from what you say I would guess the SDX would fit you the best.

As for .90s I don't have enough experience to help. My T700 flies very well but there is no question there are better machines, but whether there are better values I don't know.

Thank you for your service to our Country!

Hirobo Evo 90 and 50. 50's are $200 and change now NIB from many places, there is a 90 NIB in the for sale section for $500. Thats $700 for two quality, smooooth flying machines, commonality in design/parts as well.
IMHO

Gentleman
Thank you for all responses it is greatly appreciated, I have only 3 months left in Iraq and then I will be coming home ready to purchase a nice machine I think decision is going to be between either a Vibe 90SG or Hirobo Turbulence all though turbulence seems to be more of a 3D machine. With that said I do not plan on doing much of extreme 3D just mild maneuvers. Mostly I want focus on precession with the 90 size heli, and use the 50 more less for 3D flight.

Once Again Thank You
Bart

SYNERGY 9 hmm well if that is the case then i need to consider 5 helis: and they are: Vibe 90SG,Hirobo Turbulence, Synergy N9, Avant Aurora or the Kasama new heli. To be honest I wish I had all 4 .

You only need 2 or 3. Kasama Srimok90, SDX and maybe Turbulence. The Turb and SDX are good for both FAI and 3D. The Kasama should be great at eveything. Everyone needs a 50 to save on fuel cost and to develop good collective skills. The SDX is better than the Vibe50 at everything IMHO (I have both). The Turb is less expensive than the Vibe90, but both are excellent machines for FAI. And as you said the Turb is better for 3D. The Kasama looks to be the stuff that dreams are made of! And it's cheaper than both the Vibe SG and Turb. Good luck in your decision.

The new Kasama looks incredible for a 90. As far as a 50 size, no options, you need to get the vibe

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
