500 sized?
Anybody know if there's a Rave 500 class in the future? I tried looking for threads already asking this question and came up empty handed.

I'm sure Curtis is always thinking of new things, possibly new designs or models, but i can almost promise that we won't see it, if ever, for a long long time

No need for a 500 size. The Rave 450 flies better than the Trex 500.

+1I agree. I own two rex500s and one Rave450. The 450 is just as stable, but is far more agile. I would love to get an ENV.A.T. Quad-Rave 450-Trex 550

I thought about getting an Env. But after having a 700e, not sure I need 2 90 sized electric machines. Plus, I hear the Rave Env is super heavy. I would rather have it than my 700e. But I'm not selling it to get an Env. Now if I crash, maybe :-)

Anyone see the need for 2 90 sized electrics?

I personally could name a few reasons why the Rave is far superior to the Trex, some opinions and some facts. Only thing is that it would go over the text character limit of this reply message . If you're really interested though, drop me a PM and i'll be glad to tell you what i think . To sum things up, Curtis and his employees are a much smaller, and thus more focused, group of modlers who, based on everything i know, take a lot more time in designing their models and making sure their products are the best. Unlike the impression i've recieved from Align, Curtis takes all the time to perfect his products BEFORE release, and is never afraid to tell his customers how he is doing, or when he has made a mistake. Not to mention that the heli itself is better in many ways but i won't go into all that here

I'm sure it is!! My Rave 450 blows away my old Trex 450 and Trex 500.
But lets be real, the Trex 700 is nice. Maybe not as nice as a Rave Env. But it does very well in flight and she's pretty solid. I guess I'd buy the Env if I didn't alreay have a 700e. But I see no need for 2 big electrics. Hell, I sold my 600 esp after flying a 90 electric :-)

you are completely right. Now, if you had nothing and were deciding between the 2 i'd reccomend the Rave, but don't feel like you're not getting the good stuff with that Trex!! Those can really crank out some power!

I liked my rave 450 but it did not hold up like the rex 500. I beat the crap out of my 500 fbl. I do wish they would come up with a env 500 i would diffently have one probably would sell my rex to get one because I love the env 90 electric.

I can understand that. But my question was does anyone feel the need for 2 large "electrics" ??

Like a Rave Env and a Trex 700E

I know this :-)

The Rave 450 is a prime example. The Trex 700e with what I have in it is PLENTY for now. Gonna upgrade my helis to v-bar in spring :-)

their is no reason to have 2 90s just that much more u have worry about and buy parts 4. Ive had the 700 for about 2 years now its been a good machine not worth selling not going to get any money for it. I wanted try a big electric and I liked the way the env looked and so far it has not give me any trouble looks like it will be keeper also.
