Pro - Platinum differences
Looking to get back into nitro helis and was trying to find information on TSA. Looks like good helis but was wanting a little more clarification.

Basically, Whats the difference between the Pro and Platinum models? I can't seem to find any definitive answers.

And I know this will seem like a strange question but.. is the 600 and 700 boom diameters the same? I.e., will the 600 tail boom/drive parts fit on the 700 frame?

I'm not positive myself what ALL the differences are, but one of them has more alum and cf parts than the other one. Platinum I believe has those parts over the other.

I built a 2nd 700n Pro for this year. I've not yet built a Platinum, but from what I can tell the main Platinum differences are:

-all metal head
-all metal tail
-CF frames
-metal frame spacers

Other than that, there may be some other bits here and there. Frankly, I really like the Pro model. It's supposedly lighter than the Platinum as well.

The only non-stock thing I upgrade on the Pro model, is the fan. I buy the aluminum upgrade fan. The Pro is a very good value; to each his own.

As JBJones said, it's a matter of preference. I like metal in my helicopters and built a Platinum. It's more expensive, adds more weight and for all that, it doesn't seem to improve performance or durability. Still, for the way I fly, carbon and metal works for me.

A few important side notes. The metal X-bracing frame stiffiners pictured do not come in the Platinum kit. Nor do the metal servo arms.

Second... I have fought a pretty bad wobble in my helicopter at median head speed since new. I've made a lot of progress in solving the problem but not entirely. I'm beginning to believe the root problem is the extreme stiffness of the Platinum airframe and head components. No one flying the Pro seems to report the same problem. While many flying the Pro are using the hardest head dampers (80D), I've been forced to fly with the softest (40D). I've begun to wonder if some softness isn't introduced in the Pro air frame by all plastic frame spacers/bearing blocks, plastic blade grips and glass side frames.
