Shame on you Rog...that was not in the spirit of this thread.

Besides, electromotive force is universally denoted be a small "e"

Nitrogen with a LARGE "N"

See? The entire scientific community agrees...
Thanks for making me now have to wipe off my keyboard and moniter.

Good thing I was only drinking water...

Well then...let me expand.
Electromotive force...what's that! It's a big fancy word made up by some very bored people trying to make their work with electricity sound cool.
It's attractive forces. That's what powers your "e" toys...attraction. Some repulsion too...ooooh, that's almost cool.

What powers the real machines? FIRE! Explosion! Pressure!
They breath, drink fuel and ROAR.

And they RULE!

Nice adjectives Bob. Let me counter with Electric power being "Constant, torquee (is that even a word?), powerful, explosive (not in a fireball sense, but in a torquee sense) and violent!

Notice I had to change my sig back to the old one. Apparently my "stirring the pot of discussion" was too inflammatory...

That rots! It was a great sig.

The pot needs to be stirred! The only ones that benefit by not doing so are those sittin on their duff not doing anything.

I got this quote from another forum and thought about you guys when I read it.
A 700 nitro will get expensive to fly. Roughly 6 dollars everytime u fly. The new TP 65 c lipos have a 600 cycle life. I'd stick to electric. More powerful. Cleaner. No problems, even though I do own a 700n. I still love to fly it. :-). And the most recent funfly in Vegas, I'd say 90 percent were flying eléctric.
Edit: What's funny is that an E v N thread just started on 4/25/11 on the other forum and it's already 25 pages long!
Another interesting fact:
The companies will show you that nitro is going away and electric is the top dog. Just go ahead and take a look at all the helis coming out. Compass 7HV, MA Whiplash, Avant AuroraE, Gaui X7, Logo 700, Beam 600, Fusion 50, Fusion 90, Synergy E6, and a Rave ENV Ballistic, New Trex 600E, Raptor X50E, and a Raptor E720, which are all electric. 13 new electric helis. What does that tell you nitro fans? Which new nitros are coming out??? If there are some,, how many? Heli companies are understanding that electric is now the future of helis and nitro is taking a back seat.

Indeed, the common heli will be electric...it is already. That is where the volume will be...in the commodity.

Nitro will remain for the elite few.

Some day, someone will show up at the field with a Nitro and no-one will know what it is. Then when they see it fly, they will all want one. And, they'll ask how many MAH it has to make such power for such long flights. LOL

Whats even funnier is that the other forum has shunned such discussions in the past as being non productive and childish.

Maybe there over emphasis on conformity and not stirring the pot is what turned out to be childish.

The silly guys forgot that its all about the FUN !!!

Bob, Actually they will ask why it does not fly for 20 mins like there e helis with pico boost technology.

They will then call the local green police and have the nitro guy cited for an air pollution violation.

It may be like going on a camping trip with your son's scouting troop and breaking out an old Coleman gas lantern. Everyone will marvel that you can actually use liquid fuel to make things happen like creating light (or propelling an RC heli).

When I was child, I was very big into 1/24th scale slot cars. They were fast with their brushed electric motors for sure. And it was fun to play with the gearing, swap tires and install hotter motors to make my car even faster than my friends'. But, then came the day when I got my first Cox dragster for Christmas (my brother got a Cox u-control airplane). I believe I was about 10 at the time. All of a sudden there was nothing cooler in the world than a fuel powered toy.

There is just something visceral about internal combustion engines or even steam engines. The mechanical happenings and the noise are the stuff of dreams for many a young future mechanic, engineer and scientist.

So for me at least, I have come full circle as I can now appreciate the quiet and reliable power of a large electric heli. I will always have an appreciation for nitro though. Did I grow up or just get old?

By then I'll be 90...and if I'm lucky, I'll be flying a gasser.
