Well...it's about time you guys had enough power to need bigger gears. What's your flight time.
4:30

started with a nexus 30, then shuttle 30, couple stacked frames xcell 60's, futura se youngblood edition 60, fury basic 60, expert 90, and extreme 90 which was ballistic with the os 90 with hyper head.

i've had enough power.

and couple 450's, a 500, now a 550e.

bang for the buck and cost of ownership vs power and performance, with a good motor, the 550e is tough to beat. power to weight is high.

if cost of ownership was no issue id have a logo 700 with tim jones power and a fury extreme 90 or a env 90.

daughter headed to college soon. gotta pick one at the moment and the 550e with a neu motor and cheap packs gets it done. a blast to fly.

The 550 is one of the more impressive Align helis flight wise. It doesn't blow me away with the short 5:00 minute flight times though. I guess that is good enough for some. IMO, it sure beats the stock 600ESP setup in fun factor. Value wise, the 550 is very good.

What's the largest pack that can fit the 550? Will a 5,800mAh pack fit? Probably need some weight in the tail.

Lon, I can understand why you say these things, with your limited experience, and only using the cheapest batteries you and your friends can possibly get.
Precisely, limited experience.
That has nothing at all to do with anything.I was 100% attacked about something issue him.I don't have personal issue,he does as im not dragging his name in all my post,not talking about you Band1086.

Im more than willing to learn and all ears but when some hot head keeps talking something I never said,im doen.When he posted I never said what he claimed I did,he kept dragging my name in all his post then said I had a personal problem talking out of the wrong end,im doen.All I said was the guy in the video killed the heli in 3 mins and he had to make a big deal out of it .Im not,I could care less.Everything was good until he started putting words in others mouths that were never said and he said he was wrong but kept going.

If you ask a nitro guy "can get 18mins of hard 3D with a 50 size nitro" he says its not going to happen.When you ask the electic hot head about getting 7 mins he says yes but gets all ticked when asked for proof or whats needed.
Its a very simple yes or no question.If someone bought the heli Tareq is flying,Trex 600 ect.. and wanted to beat on it like that (doesn't mean flying like him) with the same head speed ect...,is there a way to get 7 mins?If it can't happen and their stuck with 4 mins that say it.Theres no reason to pout,get mad,start arguing or beating around the bush.Im willing to learn and buy another 50 size electric that I can run flat out for 6-7 mins of stright beating on it like I always have with my nitros.All hes posted was talking and bashing,no facts or proof at all.People aren't trying to get into something over someones word on the net because most of the time there not happy because that person was wrong,post some facts and video of you doing it.When you ask questions,your learning so if your feeling might get hurt,don't reply..
I wanna learn but I also want proof which isn't much to ask for ...

The problem here is that all you guys are comparing hard 3D to Tareq, but no one else flies like him. Kyle Dahl, Jaime Robertson, Nick Maxwell, none of them fly his stlye with that crazy headspeed he has. Yes he kills batteries much quicker, but look at the HS and way he flies. Normal guys don't fly like that or have a tremendous amount of HS.

He was also running small mAh packs and not what he should be running. I got 7 min 30 secs of flying on my Logo 600 and my flying style is kinda like LonR's style. The fact is, you don't have to have incredibly high HS's like Tareq, or fly like him to be considered a 3D'er. To be honest, I don't even care for Tareq's flying style anymore. I like smoother, more precise flying like Kyle Dahl. Tareq's style gets old, very, very quickly.

Tareq is all smack and no skill
I hope you were joking

It doesn't matter wether you like Tareq's style or not, you may HATE his style,but there is no way you can say he has no skill.

Some of the vids posted here are test vids under odd lighting and limited space conditions.check out his videos of demo flights from funflys,then tell me he has no skill

when TAREQ flys, he is not flying for points in a competition,he is flying to demo products and WOW the crowd,and the announcers and crowd always want the same thing, lower and faster.

I have been to a bunch of funflys and i have never heard an announcer yelling "slower higher" during any flights

meh, still looks like just smack to me. I think i saw maybe a little bit of a piro-hurricane in there but i still like the blend of style better , and correct me if i'm wrong but didn't he hit rock bottom in the experts class at 3DM? hehe. i guess i should stop bashing him lol, i won't admit i don't smile when i see the speed of those servos! Geez, he must be running 15V to those things, eh? Wonder what the speed is...0.0001/sec? haha

Thats the issue and why some argue,noone flys the same and not everyone likes low headspeeds.I tryed low headspeeds on my 90's,50's 500,450's and didn't like it.Sure I could still do everything but they didn't have the pop,pull,snap and rool/flip rate like high headspeeds and thats what I like.All the replys here are based on that persons flying style,headspeed ect...

If people would be honest and say I can't get 6 mins or so flying the way I am without changing my HS or flying style,thats cool.I will still fly my electric and keep having a blast with it.
If someone says yes and gets asked for proof,facts and info,don't get mad and start attacking people and pouting about it.If you say yes,that means you know for a fact because you can do it and can prove it.
People said I couldn't get 10 mins with my nitro when I said I can,I posted solid proof.
I do understand that others are interested in the lower headspeed for 3D but not everyone is..

He's not my hero but, I would not say that either...as far as I've seen, he's the only guy in the world who can dig his blades in the dirt so many times in a single flight without crashing. Matt Botos once said that you can't stay on the ground level the whole flight W/O crashing because it's too intense...and he was right, except for Tareq.

How is that even close to being funny ?Most of us wish we had half his skills.Lets see some of your flying so we can laugh.

i was just trying to support my thoery that he doesn't stand a chance at a contest like the 3DM where it's more about technical skill than crowd pleasing shmack, but nevermind , i admit that we all know he's fun to watch, even me...lol shouldn't have even brought it up
