My f6 has been the best heli ive ever had.awesome flight performance and so damn reliable.

I ve had it for 2 years now and do 10 flights a week on it.

ive thought of selling to get something new but i can never bring myself to do it. It has just been to good to me.

But i do wish a helical main gear was available.
At my club all helis must be noise tested and the furion 6 only scrapes through. All the helis with helicals are far quieter, and i think people are wanting quiet electrics. Id almost go as far as saying ma are the only company not offering helicals as an option.

I also wish their were a few different canopy paint options were available. The old green meanie was cool but everyone has got one and so becomes a litle boring.

I know others want metal tail grips. The platic grips are great but the metal would appeal to quite a lot of people.

Im not bagging the furion 6 in any way, I still recomend it to people as best in class bar none. But MA listen to their customers and if we ask we may just get.

Hate to piss in the punchbowl, but I do not think they could make a conversion to a TT for the Furion without redesigning the frames...new frames and a TT tail = new heli (the Whiplash 6)

My opinion is based on the F6's rear-mounted placement of the motor.

actually the gaui 200 design can only run a TT with the rear mounted motor option. The problem is the overall design. it could be done, but would require too many gears to transition to a drive shaft... way too inefficient.

I would also like to see a helical main gear ans other metal tail upgrades. As for the tail grips, I've been eying up Bob O'Dowd's I2 grips (I think they may fit). His CNC machining is sick, as is his customer service. From MA however, A stretch kit w/ cf tail push rod would be nice.

I would love to see a Whiplash 6. That way all of the electronics I have in my F6 would move right over. Make it so you can do a 6S to 12S machine. It would be killer... :-)
