Think of buying a X7 but?
I heard from a few people that the X7 was over priced and very heavy. I have heard from people that don't currently on one so just looking for opinions.

The X7's design has come a long way and has turned out to be a pretty awesome heli as it sits now. It may be a little heavier than an average 700 but its also a bit bigger so it isn't all beefed parts. Price is still less than a 700competition though which is nice.Team Empire Hobby/GAUI North America

Thanks for the info it seems that most agree.
So what are people doing to keep weight down? Bec, 120 ESC, and lower mah battery packs.

It is a little heavy but they must have the gearing right on it. I was a little sceptic about getting one but as I thouht it mite be they fly great and they are a beast. I fly 3D an its up to the task for sure.------

The comment about the X7 weight got me wondering so I put it on the scale.

Admittedly, my fleet consist of pantzer tanks : " Blade 550x, Rush 750, Trekker 800 " , so to me the X7 is a real lightweight.

What is the weight of a "light" 700 ?

On my kitchen scale, all in with Cyclone blades, Xnova motor, Rx battery, but without flight batteries, it is 4.09 kg.

Ps. Absolutely adore the X7 - looks, quality and how it flies.

Most x7's are around 12.25-12.5lb RTF. A few of us got ours under 12lb. Careful component selection and removing the 'fat' will get you there if that is your goal.~Drew

I love the X7. I've seen one up close and it's really nice, but I refuse to pay what they are asking for the kit. No way!

I can have the same amount of fun for a lot less and it is made in China for God's sake. Might as well get a Compass.

The OWB problem has long since been fixed. I am not sure what you are talking about. The X7 is an excellent helicopter and flies wonderful.

The X7 is worth ever penny.
1. Most durable machine I have ever owned or been around.
2. You can literally get a few hundred flights with zero maintenance. Thus cost is low.
3. The owb and tail gear issues from the past have been long solved. Owb sleeve threads into the hub and the white gears front and rear are the newest and toughest.
4. The weight is inline with 700's IMHO. 12.5 with 50c 5000. The X7 at 2100-2150 flying on long blades (710-716) feels light and flies extremely agile, not heavy at all. It's the best flying Heli I have ever flown and I build/tunemachines of all kinds on the side.
5. You won't be disappointed!

Pm me if you have any questions.
