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!!
