Just to replace my avanti mostro nitro, love the heli but parts are an issue. The last three helis I have owned the companies went under. JR Vibr SG, MA whiplash and now the Mostros
Same electronics in all three but need something I can gets parts easy I'm about to try breaking this flat line skill level. I know this will cause some crashes lol
I would like to stick to nitro

MinAir isn't out of business. Deal with Cajun Aircraft here in the US, or deal with MA-Germany direct. Easy stuff. Scott at Cajun is a good guy.

Shortly after MinAir went out, and before Josef picked them up, I bought a TSA Infusion 700. A-Main carries kits and parts. TSA is a pretty solid design and very affordable.

Unfortunately, sticking with nitro leaves even fewer available choices.

Yes I know nitro is harder but I like 90 size birds and I just don't like electric above the small stuff.
So miniature aircraft is still making helicopters?

And for synergy if the heli wasn't so dang ugly I might be more inclined, and yes looks do matter since I'm not the extreme 3D flyer

So I have bought from Cajun before and I noticed they have a Gen 2 whiplash coming in March. This is exciting to me since the whiplash I had before by far was the best heli I have ever owned. Lowest part count ever and built like a tanks. Thanks guys

I didn't say nitro was harder. It's just that there are very few 90 size nitro kits to choose from these days and I don't anticipate seeing more choices in the future.

From what I understand, that GenII is a gasser. I've asked Josef over a year ago if they were going to fix the driveline on the Glow-powered Whiplash. He said they were testing the fix, and I've never heard anything else.

I've still got my Whiplash, and a backup airframe. I wish there was a fix on the market for it. It's too good of a machine to sit in the hangar.

Surely the gen two could easily be made for nitro? In the specs it says gas, electric and nitro chassis available so I would assume they will have a nitro. Give it some time OS will have a gas two stroke for helis like they do the 45/60 airplane engines

Ok...perhaps I need to review my reading comprehension
