Sitting here staring at the screen and wondering what innovations are on the horizon for us? Better batteries, slicker mechanicals, more electronics....what's your take on this? What do you want to see or invision?

TDR 2. Better batteries for sure. I have not heard much about LiFe HV. A Goblin 109, 210, 317, 412, 578, 632, 729 .

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D

The upcoming Revolectrix BUMP controller is looking pretty slick.

The BUMP controller, shown at IRCHA, will use NFC tags to store information about the pack, number of charge cycles, etc. It will also know the correct preset to use on the charger. All you need to do is program a NFC tag once, and from that point forward just BUMP your pack and charging starts. One BUMP unit can control up to four PowerLab (or two Dual PowerLab) chargers. The BUMP is scheduled to be released in December.

A heli that flies like a Logo but crashes with no damage, one can dream.

More stabilization help (bleeding over from the drones). I know I wish I had a stabilize button when I was learning. Actually, I could use one now.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

It's going to be more electronics, no doubt. That includes the ever advancement in battery technology.

I'm staying old school because I enjoy mechanical things. I have my own private flying field now too so no one needs to rag on me about my outdated flybarred nitro powered machines.

I want a heli that will take itself to the field and fly itself much better than I ever could and come home and put itself back on the shelf in one piece...because it doesn't need me anymore.,,,

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

Seems like the ones that want to rag me about the flybar and "outdated" machines that I fly are gung-ho in the hobby for a few years, then sell everything to buy a full sized boat. I am still here and still lovin the flying!

Nothing wrong with flybared helicopters. I still fly two flybar heli's. My GMP Cricket and my Min Air 1005 gasser. I think everything has plateaued since the FBL has come out and really took hold. I can see maybe small things will be improved but now it is up to us to get better,,manufacturers have done everything else but fly it for us.

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

Don't think I could ever rag on ya about those big beautiful Airstars you
used to (still do??) fly. Always enjoyed watching those!

And have also seen sooooooo many 'top fliers' come and go, while my VERY
average skills/helis just keep 'motoring' along and pretty much enjoying it
all.

BTW, if all those guys just want to go home and put all that skill and talent on the 'shelf', I will take some it!!

im waiting for the fuel cell that you actually pour water into and get kw power from it and its the size of a soda can...and its eco friendly and has a drop rating of 50ft onto concrete... hows that?

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