I like all of these heli but as it goes, its too much of a pain in the neck and too expensive to stock up on parts for all three heli.

I just can't see any drawbacks so far with the TT E700,
parts are cheap
parts are available
its a two piece frame
saw it advertised as being really light.

TSA has some well thought designs
very affordable parts and availability
takes some serious 3d abuse and crashes very well.

The Agile 7.2 has some nice design Q's but is just too new to tell if will hold up to some serious 3D abuse,
it looks just like Gaui X7 which is nice. Uhhgg, those red parts make me kinda sick!

please do not make mention of forth being a Logo 700, I will never pay $145 for one stock canopy after a crash.

If it were me, I'd go with the TT E700. I just finished building an E720 and the quality of the kit is amazing, even better than I had anticipated. It was an easy build, low parts count, and very well designed. IMHO the kit represents an excellent value for the price. If you haven't done so already, download the manuals and take a look at each kit. I've always found that helpful when comparing kits.

I did go for TT E700 and I am really happy with it.
but the Agile on videos is flying really nice.
It seems bigger and heavier It will need a different power system (more powerful) and better lipo to propel it. I think that it will show more presence in the air.

I think that these 2 are good choices depending on what you prefer.

Thanks AerialSkyCam.

@3dgimble - The E700 manual can be found here:
http://manuals.hobbico.com/ttr/ttre0100-manual.pdf

I'm sure the other manuals are readily available on-line as well.

3dgimble- I suggest taking a look at the E720 I think it's better than the E700. I suggest reading the TT forums there you can see if there are any and what complaints people have with the E700. - Kris

There are a lot of nice touches in the E720 kit that I was completely unaware of until I stared assembling my kit.

All of the links (except two) were assembled with the correct spacing. The main gear/hub was completely assembled, and the main blade grips had the bearings installed in them. The torx screws are a nice change and the kit includes a hardened torx driver. What's really nice is the screws aren't covered in oil to prevent them from rusting so there's no need to clean each screw (which I really hate most when building a kit) before applying thread locker. All these touches make for a very quick build and I'm a slow builder.

The torx driver has a dual purpose. It is also used to perfectly center the aileron and elevator with no sub trim. A nice design.

Very nice indeed and very well thought out. Although I haven't gotten to it yet (ready to install the electronics now), being able to perfectly center the aileron and elevator like that is priceless. Along with the servo adapters and linkage design, it's got to be one of the easiest helicopters to perfectly setup I've ever seen.

Right down to battery changes. Never have to take off the canopy. Yes,very well thought out.

I got an extra battery tray to go with my E720, only $12. I love the fact that you don't have to remove the canopy to change the batteries.

Not worth it IMHO.

I do like the Thunder Tiger E700, but to get a extra battery tray from Tower Hobbies it says out of stock and expected late February. Two months to get battery trays?
