this thread says less about e vs n and more about those frequently posting within it.

I have no idea how you came up with monkey nuts I think you need to explain that in the how you got your member name thread. ...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I seriously enjoy the noise,smell and the occasional cleaning.

Why is that so hard for people to accept?
I don't think anyone is not accepting it. As stated by most people who've contributed on this thread...we really don't care what the other folks are flying. Some of us just don't enjoy those three aspects about it so just bust each others chops about it because it's fun! That's all this thread is anyway...just busting each other's preference of power for fun! Now some folks would rather bust on other people personally and that's wrong and not the spirit of this thread

It comes down to how you fly as to what you prefer . . . .

As I see it, the primary requirement is:

Precision flying: Pilot skill

Wanking: Power

So, are you a flyer, or a stick banging wanker? It will determine what you prefer . . . .

Why not have both? If you want that beauty then you won't let your friends become nitro tarded the sig was the hook ! precision and power becomes an electrical dream and reality....Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I have to admit I am with Bob here . . . I really like working on Nitro, and electric bores me to death, not to mention I have seen folks have far, far, more problems with electric than nitro. I'll take the long flight times, minimal field power requirements, and back to back flights any time. Higher power n a lot of cases means more weight . . . If I don't need or want it, no point carrying it . . .

If I wanted to be tied to a genny or a wall plug, I'd bring along a blender . . . . I have a 26AH gel cell that can keep me going for days recharging nitro with zero shore power . . . . doesn't work for crap on electrics . . .

I think it's funny how nitro guys say that if someone flies electric that somehow they have diminished skill...

I guess Kyle Dahl has no skill...

I won't say that they have diminished skill categorically, but high power can let you get away with things that you can't otherwise - IE mask sloppy flying . . .

And the reverse is *NOT* true . . . .

Look at last years majority top 3 stand winners at major competitions what were they flying? Exactly electric! Must be a reason? Guess those pros that flew them needed that power to help their nooby skills!? You nitro guys are funny when out of ammo it becomes a "it takes more skill and is more manly to fly nitro" argument. Seriously?.. give your head a shake on that one..

That is the thickest and deepest load of bullcrap yet to be entered in this thread. Stickbanging has nothing to do with nitro or electric neither does skill, that's all pilot.
In competition electric will allow a pro to show all they can do as they're not as restricted by power that's not a negative thing by any means.

That mentality is just a way for the nitro guys to cope with their envy over the raw power of electric.

+1 .The newer nitro motor's are very close in the bogging department just like electric's so a noob wouldn't learn collective management on either unless they wanted to and wouldn't bog the motor on either.You can load the motor up on a nitro pretty good if you tried but it's not going to bog and fall out of the sky.

I run 13 1/2 degrees of pitch on my OS 55 and it pulls like a train with out missing a beat.My old YS 50st and Hyper 50 would bog with 11 degrees of pitch flying like I am now.Them motor's run good but suck for power.I can jam the stick's with no collective management on my OS 55 just like I do on my electric and have video's of it.15-20ft flipping up/down pitch pump's with no bogging.I'll find the video in a bit because im about to go fly my electric ...

Exactly I would never claim or associate poor skill, or intelligence etc to either side as that has nothing to do with it IMO. A good pilot can motivate either side of the debate. And if they obtain a heli with more power be it electric or nitro it just means they can take advantage of that increase in power etc....Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

+1 and just for the record ..I wasn't claiming that my nitro is on par with my electric in the power department.My electric kill's it in power but my nitro isn't lacking power at all .Just wanted to say that before someone made it sound like im saying power is the same .

Pro pilots are flying electric in competitions because of contractual obligation.

Watch the Vegas funfly Smacktalk video and see what they are all flying on their own time.Nitro.

Curtis Youngblood brought his Rave and said he could get it in either nitro or electric.The one he brought was nitro.

Szabo was asked if he preferred electric or nitro in an interview.
He said electric since they are promoting the new 12S 600E.
Then he stepped away from the microphone and carried his nitro 700 out for a fun flight.

Bobby and Bert flew nitro 700's to do their tandem smack down.
Bert didn't even bring an electric heli with him.

Nick Maxwell flew nitro for his big fast routine.
He did a bunch of blade stops and did a bunch of throttle hold climb outs which are cool as heck to watch.

You see in the background that almost all the helis in the air leave a smoke trail when they walk the midway.

Saying nitro guys envy the power of electric is silly at best.lol...

I started with battery power and got seriously bored with it.
Electric has a small power advantage when you dump 100% collective on it but nitro recovers quick enough without letting off.

This is all a personal opinion by the way.
It's only what I see
I literally never use the word literally right.

I don't know, I think saying Pros fly E because of contracts is a guess... And a bad guess too! Though it is true many of the Pilots I know still love the fun of flying a N.90 what ever the make... most will tell they enjoy the electric too. Honestly a well rounded pilot should be able to tune, fly, and fix both. Some of Our Pro mentors can even design and build them.

If the place I went to fly at didn't have electricity and I didn't want to tote a generator 1000 miles, I'd bring my nitro too.

I haven't seen one nitro guy on this thread say that. Actually it's been quite the opposite!

You don't think the Las Vegas field has electricity?
They have a paved runway.lol...
It's one of the nicest fields I've seen.
