How many guys are flying the Sylphide E12 on a regular basis for practice, or just for fun?

How does the nitro version rate to the E12?

Since most of the F3C crowd flying the Sylphide have gone electric there are probably (& sadly) fewer nitro version being flown.

That being said (while I did not have the pleasure to fly one - I had the opportunity to see Scott fly his for a couple of years at local funflys) the Sylphide with his unique power transmission unit was definitely/originally build for nitro and was a 'good' machine with a distinctive sound.

I fly my Sylphide E12 for practice, my Trex700 FBL for learning new manuvers, like the proposed 2014 FAI schedule.

I have been flying my nitro Sylphide since 2004 but looking at the current trend that JR seems to focus their effort on the e Sylphide. I think the e Sylphide is still evolving partly depends on the 2014 FAI schedule being finalised.

I felt sad to let my nitro Sylphides go as they are built and fly beautifully. Given that I have access to electricity socket in the flying field, it is a more viable option to fly electrics.
