I'm curious if there is alot of interest in this heli?

I have never been a fan of the trex 700 but even I am VERY tempted to buy one of these ....they look pretty damn nice

I am even more anxious to see what people think of them...When you watch the vids it looks awesome...but then you realize that Alan Szabo makes EVERYTHING look awesome..

Any flight reports yet?

With so many other options available, I'm not sure a Trex 700E is my first choice.

700E's
I hear the flybarred versions are hitting the shelves also now...

I just wish they would come out with a kit that doesn't come with anything but the airframe and flybarless head

I would prefer not to have to buy the align servos and 3g

Well...without starting a pissing match...I'll just say this ...the servos get sloppy pretty quickly...

and slap a vbar on that machine after trying the 3G for a while...then you'll see why you won't want to go back to a 3G

Combo's are great once you sell off the components you don't want you end up with a really cheap kit.

Mines on its way. I've been running the 3g on my 600 since the start of the season with 610's no issues so far. I cant wait to try it in the 700

You had me at Hover

If I get one it will have Futaba BLS servos and a SK-720. Due they offer the flybarless kit without electronics? The Stock motor is the only thing that I want.

700E
From what I heard the newest combo is the flybarred kit without the 3g's

I am not sure if they come with servos or anything though?

I am wondering if/when the flybarless kits without electronics will be coming as well...

BLS servos and Sk720 sounds like a good combo

As of now, flybar version comes with motor only, no servo/gyro/ESC.

I have a SK720 in the mail that will go on my 600. Hopefully it will be flying this weekend.

I had a chance to try the 700E standard kit, it had an ICE160 2X Thunder Power 45C 5000s and was just a touch tail heavy, but man was it awesome to fly! very clean uninhibited POWER!

The heli had DS610 and a Quark with the 650 on the tail, very nice flier indeed!
