Interesting flight video and I am glad that there are new gas offerings on the market. I just wonder though with a 56 ci or 9cc gas engine in a small package and higher operating temps than nitro are we going to be chasing main bearings like I did with my OS Hyper 50 nitro?? I find the sound of that heli irritating as hell...

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

Ive been looking into the NX4 forums...seems they have had a problem with breaking everything on the small nitro heli..broken clutches, warped bells, sloppy head blocks, tail problems...not sure if its from quality control or what, from what I have read some guys have given up on Gaui and the others who are happy so far.

how do they plan on dealing with the "extra" vibrations from the engine given the history of issues these guys are having with the nitro model?

good luck with that one. sounds like another money pit to me.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

My NX4 was a money pit and when I saw that they were releasing a gasser I laughed to myself. I wish them luck but they're not getting any more of my time and money....

man that bites... I was really hoping this would be a descent price awesome gasser heli to satisfy my gas bug... but after going through some threads as stated before seems like the nx4 has some big issues and with even more vibs just seems like it will be a headach... sticking with electrics for now
