Who is hating on the Rush? I haven't seen anyone say anything negative about it.
sure is a bunch of haters here.
Awesome. It looks like a great heli. I'd love to try one. Pro pilots mean NOTHING, though. They are just guys who are really good at flying, and could make anything look great. Hell, there is a video out there of Kyle Stacy flying a Blade CP years ago and making it look better than 98% of the people in the world could do with your Rush or just about anything else out there.
I have a rush 750, and it flies very nice. its very quick in the cyclic. as fast or faster then my X5 and F50 all day long. ive had pro pilots beat the snot out of it with no issues.
Awesome. Hopefully they continue to be of such high quality. I've owned some of his other helis and they were all very nice, but had quality issues. It seems like he has more control over this than he did at Outrage, so hopefully these continue to be made with quality components.
the design of the entire kit and how it goes together is very nice. i personally think the quality and tolerance of the parts are on par with the top kits out. for a new kit that just hit the market, there have been very very few small issues that have been fixed easily.
You will be happy to know that you can go buy a Quick, MSH, Audacity, RJX, Compass (the designer comes on, not the owner), Synergy, or NextD hell. All of them have the owners and designers regularly participating in the forums. It is nice to have a direct line to the people at the top.
another thing is charley(owner and designer) actually gets on the forums and communicates about the product and issues. very very few compainies do that. you never see align, sab, outrage, gaui, or anyone else on their specific forums talking about the product REGULARLY. that makes a difference to me.
Again, nobody is hating on the heli. It is simply stated that the head (while nice) is not unique. That same head design has been commercially available for years, but apparently the original designer chose not to patent it. I'm sure there are some refinements (specifically in how the arms are mounted, I understand the Rush uses posts instead of screws), but let's be honest here, the claim that it is different than anything else and original is stretching the truth. I'm sure it is an awesome heli, and I plan on buying one, but it will be for some of the other things that it has that are fairly unique, not the head.
i guess some of you haters just wont know what your missing.
If you'd like to buy one of those heads for another heli, they have been sold here for years:http://www.rc-tek.com/store/flybarl...Cbr%3E-c58.html
