I'm sorry for my ignorance but between the Spectra gasser and the new whiplash I am assuming the biggest differences are direct servo control with no bell cranks etc to the swash,,a bigger clutch...lower weight? And RC format Zenoahs and I would guess fewer parts count as the Spectra and my 1005 which have a ton of parts.!! Is this correct??

Is there much of a weight difference between the Spectra and the Whiplash? Or gear ratio advantages?

I don't think much weight difference. The spectra may even be less weight?

I was lucky enough to get a pull on the Whippy Gasser at Helis Over Delaware and OMG I was blown away. This was the first gasser where flying full out 3d was achievable without have to 'baby' it. The Heli was very agile and powerful give the weight. Definitely the technology has come a long way.

Clearly it does not have the same power as a 12S Whippy or a Nitro Whippy but very respectable. If I had to compare it to another heli it would be closer to a heavy 90 size nitro but the torque delivery was different than that of a nitro i.e. more grunt. Overall I was able to do everything I can do with my nitro minus the really agressive pops and collective transitions. All in all I was very impressed.

Also, the bearings on the whippy are HUGE! Much bigger then the other gassers.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

Just a note to those who may be new to Gassers, I flew my Whiplash this morning. Unfortunately for me me I had the vent line and fuel pickup line from the tank reversed as it comes into the engine. This was a very basic mistake and I take full responsibility.

Here's what happened. The bird started fine. I took off hoping to practice my basic maneuvers. The helicopter got about 10' up and the engine quit. It dropped like a stone and cost me two struts, one set of tail servo gears, a set of tail rotors, and a new set of rotar blades. I know this is part of my learning curve but doesn't have to be part of yours.

Sorry to hear that
Can't stress enough how important it is to learn to auto. You'll save yourself alot of crashes that way due to engine failure or tail rotor failure for example.

When you do put the lines back in there properly, make sure you secure them away from the clutch bell. My feed line actually got loose and ran into the clutch bell and got sliced open by it, well guess what, the motor leaned out and died, but I was able to land with no incident and make some adjustments to the lines to prevent this from happening again.
