Hello RR folks, I've recently moved back to the US from Korea and have the itch to get back into the hobby (I sold my Raptor Titan/Dx7 rather than put them in storage for years :/ ) I'm thinking of the JR 11x for the speed and quality, or a Dx7se for the speed, but am open to suggestions on radios. I'm going to get 2 helis: a small electric I can fly in the empty soccer field near my back yard daily, and a larger "flagship" heli - something I can take to a dedicated airfield and have a blast with. The later is something I need your help with.

When I flew my titan, the guy that helped me set it all up flew a Synergy N9 and I was floored by the power and size of that heli! I REALLY don't want to start another brand-war or Nitro vs Elec, but I'm just saying that when I left for Korea, I was sure that when I returned I wanted a .90 Nitro.

Well, I see that the hobby has certainly changed over the last few years, so I'm open to suggestions. I've looked for the Avant Aurora and Synergy N9 but can't find kits/parts ANYWHERE. I've also considered the Trex 550E and it looks like something that might fit the bill. Any suggestions (with good reasons)?? Money really isn't an obstacle (although I don't WANT to spend a fortune). I would like something with fewer parts / easier to repair/maintain, and of course, with lots of power. Would the 550E fit the bill well, or do you have any other suggestions for me to look into? Oh yeah, I don't want to have to wait 3 months for parts replacements, so please, nothing that isn't well supported or never heard of at most clubs.

TYVM for your suggestions. They will be of great assistance to me!!

Respectfully,
Dave
