I've never tried nitro. But I would love to try it. It's just right now it's not feasible.

I have 2 little electric Helis - great fun for a short time on the limited battery life....by the time 8 mins kicks in and I've got to land...I'm only just getting warmed up !!

My other 9 machines are all nitro and 500 size up to 700 size, now those I wouldn't swap for anything. Forget the 8 to 10 mins stuff - I can fly for longer and then land, top up the tank (with the engine still running if I wish) and do it all again !! Forget about hours charging battery packs , that's no fun at all. (Except where it relates to my Tx & Rx packs of course)

I'm only here coz I'm not all there !!

Nitro only! Besides...your heli shouldn't sound like a cordless drill!

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

Ya I like them two. I still have six or seven 50's and 90's and they have flybars. I am thinking of getting a new one FBL but the cost has went way up on engines. Now that electric has taken over everyone seams to have up the price.
When I go back to flying nitro I think it's time to land and I look and I have half a tank left. Ya, no need for a timer. LOL

I only wish more 50 size nitro models were available!

It's not a proper heli unless it's nitro!

60% of the time, it works every time!

Nitro does not sound like a chainsaw, my gasser sound like a chainsaw and love it, for me it's the only way to fly.

P.S. sorry for the spelling or the grammar I am dyslexic!

still fly my Nitro Fury Tempest 3D/FAI, I did change them over to electric but converted them back to Nitro.

I just like the sound and smell. Electrics in larger size machines just scare the hell out of me.. my opinion only..

Love him or hate him, John Beech with his nitro Pantera 6 has outlasted almost everyone. It's one of the few 50 size nitro offerings these days.

Tried rotary wing electrics and knew something was missing. Could it be the noise and aroma of nitro methane? Electrics' came on the scene because of simplicity and operating costs. We live in a society of PNP and anything nitro powered does not fit into this mold. I grew up on nitro and will never venture back to the dark side.
