I have 2 700 birds, and one 800.
The 800 is a F3C competition maching, mechanical mixed with flybar.
It is still unmeasured from everything i´ve flown so far.

The range it can cover is tremendous. It can hover at 900 RPM and fly acrobatics at near 2000 headspeed with plenty of power.

The machine is extremly good to see, compared to the 700 Henseleit.

The only disadvantage is that it does not fit in the SL. So when my wife wants the jeep i have to fly the 700s.

The Goblin 770 would be a good mix of both sizes. I have the 500 and 700 and had i had a larger car i would have bought the 770.

I have seen it flown on 12s @ 2000 rpm and it was just a monster but can also be dropped to a lower head speed to make it more gentle.

I have had many 700s and a Mikado XXtreme. I loved both Helis but they are very different. The plain and simple reality is, an 800 is exponentially larger in presence, cost, and crash costs. The only reason I sold the XX was because I was simply afraid to crash it so I flew it very gently. If money was no object, I would own both. There simply is nothing like an 800 in raw presence and feel. 700s are awesome as well, great to fly and PLENTY of power.Team MikadoUSA 480XXTreme, 550SX, 600SX, 700XXTreme, 800XXTreme!!

"I was simply afraid to crash it so I flew it very gently." took the words out of my mouth. I have 6 flights on mine. It is the coolest heli ever but I have more fun with the 700's.I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D.

epic md 7-8
Thats a nobrainer I would purchase a epicheli MD 7-8. Simply becouse the kit comes with 2 of every thing you need to make it a 700 or 800 and the quality is second to none and they fly so smooth and quiet, in fact I now own two of them one is a 700 and my new kit is going to swing edge 753 with the 800 boom that way I can stay at 12s. Still have power with that bigger disk and stability with the longer 800 boom. Check it out at epichelis.com, its a winner.

The Epic does use the Direct Flight Control or EFC as we call it.

However, our version does work in low speed RPM as well as High speed RPM. We've also just released a tail speed up gear for those wanting to run low head speed on the 700 and for increased performance on the 800 when running 800mm blades at lower RPM.

To be honest it just depends on your flying style. The 800 is more for big air maneuvers. It is big and slow. But it is supper smooth! You can range on your head speed. My idle up 1 is at 1000 HS, Idle up 2 is at 1437, and Idle up 3 is at 1826. I dont run a normal but I can do all the same maneuvers at 1000 to 1826. With a lower head speed you will find that it will fly longer I get 13 in flights with 14s 4400 65c. Bring the packs down to 32%. It is very intimidating. THe first flight you should bring some new undies .The 700 size will be more for smack as it is smaller and can handle higher head speeds. But all of that being said it takes money. I Have a Logo 800, Logo 700, Logo 600, Compass 7HV, Compass Warp 360. THe logo 800 and 700 logo are my favorite. THe larger they are the more expensive they are to get going and more money in crashes. But they are easier to control. Here are some pictures.

Yeah, I figure you could just strap the gallon jug into the airframe at that point!
