get a fifty dude. fuel cost to much to fly a ninety. i got a beater trex 700 that i love to fly with but at $30 for a gallon of fuel, and about five to six flights to a gallon. that's about $5 a flight. ouch!
its collecting dust right now. well, maybe one flight every now and then to keep the bearings lubricated.

What Balsapro said and $30 bucks a gallon, cys ???? You might want to make a trip to Lums one weekend for a fuel run, it would be worth the trip!!

I have both and some others the 700 is getting a Align FBL conversion

The costs are similar, although the 700 is initially more, however when it comes to fuel cost the 600 is way less, I prefer the 700 as the 90 has more presence in the air, however expect to burn twice as much fuel.
Getting both is the best option even if is 600 now and 700 later.

The 700 is easyer to fly, more power, but with the 600 you will learn to manage the collective better, it's not as for giving if you use bang the sticks!
If we were worried about the cost we wouldn't fly either.

i've got both helis and i fly my 600 more,i can get more flights out of a gallon of fuel,and you will learn to be smooth with the 600 becouse if u stick bang it ,the engine will bogg down.
but at the end both helis are owesome,and you can't go wrong getting the 600 or the 700 or both

I would say if cost isn't an issue go with the 700. That said, I actually enjoy flying my 50 helis more but I think that's cos there's less money tied up in the them so less "pukker" factor.

if you do crash the cost is a lot more also on the 700.
a crash on the 600 might be around 250.00 a crash on the 700 its gonna be around 300-400!

which way is it going dude!!!!!!?? am i inverted??

Well I have a Trex 700 Limited Edition on the way along with the Align Flybarless Head System. I figure for the slight increase in price you get the most capable helicopter in the long run. I can't wait to see what the new head and gyro system flies like..

Now.. What Engine.. Muffler??

Align H w/ Align pipe or the MP6 those are what I use and both make good combos with great power, they just tune a little differently.

Get a 600 and put a OS 70 in it. Same fuel usage as a 50, with more power than a 90. Simple Mod, look up "Trex 600 big block"

Fly with scheduled ground contact !

I did a crash-cost comparison awhile back. The 700 is not significantly more expensive to repair than a 600!

https://rc.runryder.com/t440060p1/

Crash Costs including non-painted canopies:

Trex 700 N: $107
Trex 600 N: $108
Synergy N9: $212
Avant Aurora: $259

I love flying my 700N. THe 600N just sits around and collects dust!

Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

Although I am electric only guy, I've seen both and fly them at fun flies. I'd definitely go with 700 if you don't mind the fuel cost. It just flies better, regardless of what the 600 owners tell you.

OS 91HZ or the Align 91HP or Align 91H (both Aligns' made by OS?)

Anybody know the difference between the Aligns other than the heads?

This is the Align Pipe or is this just a muffler?
