Is this primarily aimed at "non-hobbyists"?E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

I think its similar to the JR GSR260, if you want a really big model to sport fly, and something thats different this would fit that bill.If they made a full canopy and tail boom cover for it it could look pretty nice

most of the ad copy talks about payloads though.

Im assuming this is a prototype still in testing?

I wonder how well that frame is going to hold up. with the vibes from that 50cc 4 stroke running within its power band.

Im assuming they figured out a way to mitigate the vibration from the torque as the main gear hub has a very beefy cylindrical center section that may be hiding a torque dampening feature... the engine would probably also be mounted on dampeners maybe?

saw a video of it flying some fast circuits, the exhaust sounded like a scooter running at top speed with a hole in the muffler.
made a full canopy and tail boom cover for it it could look pretty nice
isnt that whats shown in the back with grey color?

oh yeah.....might be nice if they pulled the canopy back a bit further.

from the audio, doesn't sound like the engine is spun up all that much so may not be an issue

I had one of the helibug 46cc conversions, it was pretty smooth if you didnt' get silly with the engine rpms

seems like they are pretty much the same price if the XG9 does include all the servos like the tail and throttle as well as the generator.showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

pricing on the JR GSR260 is misleading. everybody looks at the kit price and freaks

but they don't notice that it includes all the rotor blades, the engine, the muffler, a boom shroud and huge canopy that are pre-painted. On an 800 class model if you buy those parts separately they aren't cheap. So if you deduct all that out of the JR price the kit itself is pretty reasonable and its very high quality

I suspect if you price out everything in the GX9 kit it would be about the same.
