That's what I'm saying.
The electric guys are the ones saying that.
Disagree. I see it as electric guys prefer the extra power, quietness and ease of maintenence of electric over nitro. Not that nitro guys are jealous of the massive power produced from the electric power system...

Kyle Dahl should learn how to tune a nitro engine...

Mikado is coiming out with that new helicopter...wait...that's electric too...nevermind.
Can he? I don't know... I don't even know if he can program an ESC... Until recently he couldn't even drive a car! But I wouldn't go ask Kyle for help at all! I would go ask Bert K, or if I had a Rave I wouldn't hesitate to ask Curtis for some help with my setup! Being a great flier has nothing to do with being a well rounded pilot!

Not me,I perfer my nitro over my electric and I own both.All the extra power people talk about is fun but at the same time useless.Sure a electric can move and climb out faster,big deal but it will never out fly a nitro and that's a fact.The only way a nitro will have more maintenence is if you don't have the tuning skill's of a donkey.Just like the electric fan's say to guy's that had a bad vib's about electric,don't blame your lack of skill's on nitro's as the road go's both way's.
The only maintenence on my nitro is the 3-4 min's it take's to wipe the heli off with a old rag,clamp the fuel line's and plug the pipe <--- no oil dripping after that.I alway's have my nitro put away,car started in drive ready to go before my buddy has his electric heli,charger's,gen ect...put away.Same with getting everything ready to go out.Some of the thing's people say is total BS from both side's.Im getting more and more into electric but i'll never kick my nitro to the curb..People act like the whole 3 min's or so to get one ready or packed up is a major deal or the day will end .
I'll soon have a small gen and more lipo's which will be here any day now,im not giving either up and love flying both.I love the longer flight time on my nitro and love the ripping power of my electric.To me,one is no better than the other and having the best of both world's in flat out awesome..Each their own but having both is way better than having one ..

Pro pilots are flying electric in competitions because of contractual obligation.
Are you sure abut this statement or guessing?

Last years masters Nick Maxwell flew and won his position with his Electric Rave, not his Nitro which is also made by his sponsor. He had the choice. If you watch that flight it makes sense on the choice he made, for the power and for the setup of that specific routine, most noticeable in his freestyle victory routine.

Again not about better or wrong, but be nice to have people not making statements in which they "think" are fact but... in fact are fiction..

> Yes Kyle knows about Nitro, he was flying that for sometime prior to flying electric helis in general.

> True he is a young man, now driving a car and girls are becoming realities and likely distractions.

> Absolutely 100% agree a well rounded pilot and representative of any brand and class E or N takes more then just being a hot shot pilot, in fact that is less then half the gold to doing well.

Blah, blah, blah blah blah blah blah. Let's just make this simple. Almost everyone knows electric is better, even most diehard nitro guys. Not saying we should throw our nitro helis in the trash. I still have 6 nitro models, but I won't be buying any more.

I asked several pros whether they like electric or nitro better. All except one preferred electric. All except one also said they like both.

I believe the reason you still see many pros using nitro at events is due to the BS you go through at the airport with LiPo batteries. Plus the added baggage costs to bring multiple packs, a power supply and charger. Some of the pros just rely on the local guys to have the charging equipment.

If you nitro guys like them so much, I have a few I'm willing to sell.

Touche' go back and read your opening line, tell me where it clarifies that is was your opinion. It clearly appears you are stating a known fact. Sure you slap an "opinion" comment at the end, but that's not really proper..

@ the end, I suppose I was supposed to assume it all was, the opener however was not identified on it's own as opinion and a strong opinion or guess at that. I suppose I gotta take mcrackin grammer 101 or have ESP to know what he feels is fact or such... Either way it's BS as stated anyhow....Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

lmao...I agree.

One thing though...

It was said the reason pros fly nitro at event is because of the hassle of traveling with lipos.

The only event I mentioned was Vegas and that is the home field of a lot of the pros I mentioned.

Just sayin'

Yes travelling with lipos is in fact a hassle can not argue with that. Especially across border. In going to Ircha last year the customs peeps were waiving my buds 10S lipos around in the air, confused they were, people around thought they were bombs? Next thing I know I was heading to the plane and friend was getting a complete body search in a private room lol. Better him then me!

But to my suprise two other friends had to leave their Nitros as well in USA cause "apparently" there was too much nitro residue in the tanks?? WTF...

Of course...that's the fun and spirit of the EvN thread! We not only do it to you, but we do it to all nitro guys, nitro guys do it to electric guys, heck we even do it to each other sometimes. That's the fun of EvN and why I keep coming back all day long!

Just whipping the pot of discussion, one post at a time!
