I agree, nitro rocks, BUT: a 12s 50 or 90 size bird chews and spits out ANY nitro Heli of the same size 4 breakfast

Ok... 90 size maybe, but not 50 size. 10s Align 600 against Align 600 Nitro with OS 55 and 30% nitro, I am given to say that this race would be pretty close...

Any respectable 10s will eat a 55 nitro, I have a 8s 600 thet will eat a 55, But only for 5 minutes.
And it weighs 10 lbs

Matt Boto's Logo 600 was peaking at 5000W this past weekend at Clint Akin's FunFly. The OS55 is a monster, but it won't make over 6.5hp in this or any other lifetime.

Runtime is another matter, but the claim on the table was that a 600 electric was about equal in power to an OS55 nitro 600. NOT.

If money were no issue it'd be between nitro and electric.

Gas is cheap but power to weight is not there like it is with E/N.

I fly a 10s vbar Logo 600. I get 6.5 minutes of more power than I can handle on year old Outrage XP25 4200's with 100+ cycles on them.

That said, I've really been digging on my T700n lately.

If I had the budget for it, I think I'd have electric and nitro Aurora 90's - two of each.

I would get a Logo 700 and put everything top spec on it if I had all the money in the world .

I currently fly all three and they all three have their place in the work shop. I have really begun to like gas machines more and more. In fact I am thinking about getting out of the nitro scene and just flying electric and gas.

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

Me too.

But the OP said if money were no issue.

Money will always be an issue, though. To pretend it isn't is to disregard all that is real. Because truly, if money were no issue, I'd fly a trex inside my cabin class private helicopter with a hot babe waiting to do my bidding...or maybe WHILE doing my bidding. Then I'd eat a 4 course meal at a top restaurant, donate a couple hundred grand to the needy, then go to the flying field and fly my fleet of 90's that are maintainted by a full time helicopter maintenance crew. Curtis would be there giving me private lessons. After I crashed all 12 of my helis, which are all Turbulence D3's, the heli cleanup/maintenance crew will pick up the helis and go fix them while I hop onto my Ducati, which my butler brought out to the field for me, for a nice ride. Unless it's raining, then Jessica, the maid, shows up with the Lamborghini. Unless I'm tired, then James brings the limo. That evening I might play a little guitar with Metallica as my private teachers and invite everyone from the hot girls thread over for a party.

You get the point. LOL Total fantasy.

Money is an issue, always will be.

When someone asks "if money were no issue" I often wonder exactly what they want to hear. No answer given could be based on reality.

In reality, it's about the best power and endurance that is affordable, which is why the answers to this topic are not REAL answers, if that makes sense.

As such, FOR REAL, I'm looking HEAVILY into gasser for bigger birds and the electric 450 for smaller birds so I can keep flying a lot at excellent cost.

Before the nitro price hike I was all about getting a 90. You couldn't GIVE me one now. I don't want to feed one. 4$ per flight. BAH!

But since you want my fantasy answer, I'd fly Nitro because I believe it offers the best power & endurance combination.

Gas is all about endurance with less power.

Electric is all about power with less endurance.

Nitro has the best of both worlds. It has most of the power of electrics without the short duration flights.

Now...invent a battery that gives 15 minute flights on an electric and I'd go electric. Or invent a gas engine that offers the same power to weight as a nitro and I'd go gas.

It's all about performance and endurance for me.

at cost, ahem. <----Sorry reality crept in again.
