The only reason that outhouse and Gimble continue is because they're after a bit of fun.
Its most likely they have a compusive need to be right, not that are right but certainly like to think they are right even though they have No idea whether or not they are right but in thier minds they are right--- enough "rights" for ya ?

HELODAMUS PREDICTS:

-I predict that there are going to be a whole bunch of fun flies and events this year and everyone is going to have a blast.

-I predict that everyone is going to crash at least once this year.

-I predict your going to need a new canopy, you might as well buy one now while there on sale. Get some blades too, your going to need them. Oh, and landing gear.

-I predict that Szabo kid is going to make some video and everybody is going to want the new heli he's flying. Well some of us.

-I predict there will be at least 50 new threads on RR asking what the best FBL unit is. And 50 different answers.

what exactly does "right" mean, eh?

If you say the earth is flat, and I say the earth is round, I am still "right" regardless if I argue to death against you.

Being "right" is not really a crime. But not accepting that someone is "right" is.

I would not count on Align staying in the lime light forever, because there have been many many more that went before Align, and they were all very popular in their day. You seem to forget or maybe you are not a veteran heli flyer and do not remember that you are in a very very trendy hobby, and even more so now that some things have changed.I do not see alot of innovation like I used to from flyers,and that may be because there are not alot of us with high level building skills.Also believe it when I say that Align needs to work itself into a frenzy to stay on top.There are a lot that would like to take over.

As for Miniature Aircraft they are still one of the best if not the best and often (even today)copied. My guess is you are relatively new flyer, and if not then I think the poor bull no longer is constipated. HAHAHAHA

DO you think fbl is something new?? I was flying it 30 years ago and inverted, no help from electonics, and still doing it. As for nitro going away, you may be a very old man when that happens and not even able to remember you once flew heli's.

New Year Prediction
I think the hobby will grow even more than in the past and with some new items coming from manufactures.I think there will be some new innovations, from some manufacturers that have been in the business for awhile. I also think there is a big future for larger aerobatic coaxial helicopters. We will have to wait and see on that one, but there are two that I know of selling kits. I also think there will be some turbines coming way down in price and getting smaller. They already have decreased somewhat in size, and cost but not enough. A cost effective and well made turbine would be the perfect replacement for electrics.

slickporsche,

Align have driven the perception of the buyers to a level where it is no longer acceptable for a plastic framed heli to be priced like a carbon framed heli, that's my point. That's why they got most of the market.

And to be honest, their helis are acceptable and some will agree rather good for the price point. Very, very few are going to pay $1500+ for a heli now, let alone $2000+!!!

Any heli manufacturer is going to commit financial suicide by going the high end route. I just had a look at the Rave 90 ENV and to be honest it's made with the same "background" as the Align models. It's quite a nice model, might be tempted to try one out, but I honestly don't think I will.

And if you think MA has good quality, well the less said about that the better, not something I want to say in public.

The yen got too strong, and cheaper made in China helis are where it's at if you are a heli manufacturer who WANTS to make MONEY. I personally think the others are just surviving.

slickporsche, FBL might not be a brand new idea, but it's definately not old . As for nitro dying out, everyone else will think something different, and that is what i think. You could be correct just as much as i could

I predict that Eflite will sell a very small 3-axis gyro'd heli - because Walkera already sells it.

Would be cool to see a FBL CP Trex-100 with the performance of the 250. I'd like to see what the WK 120 CP FBL flies like.

The nitro guys will realize that electrics are vastly superior and dump all of their oily, greasy, and noisy old nitro's in a 6 foot deep hole in the ground

HA! Like that will ever happen. Electrics kick A$$!
And if you think MA has good quality, well the less said about that the better, not something I want to say in public.
Don't quite know what that's about. I've had nearly every X-Cell made.
And all the ones I've had were great. I've had lots of others, but generally Miniature is still my fav...
