High quality 700 size a "must have?"
Yea I agree i will try to fly in 200 yards by 200 yards when I'm making a day or weekend of it. Pistol Pete is close with a club field Juan is north of me but I don't know his setup. I love all sizes and different styles of flying. I want to say to others at my level I have been playing guitar since I was 14 and I'm 52 if I don't know a song or chord I want to play it's no problem because I know my fingers can't do it now but they will with repetition it's practice practice practice you get muscle memory there are no shortcuts and what music gives me is personal expression. Same with rc get to show what MY mind can think of and there is no limits with the right cp helicopter it's a beautiful thing when a guitarist is in the zone or when a pilot is on point. Life is to short not to fly 3d

I know how Icarus felt

Coming in a little late on this thread, but my opinion is that this is a hobby. In a hobby, there isn't really anything that is a must have. You know your limits, and capabilities, and most of all your budget.

All the posts have had great viewpoints. So all it really boils down to is the question "is this what I really, really want?"

I agree, a 700 sized machine can really be dangerous if not handled properly. A 500 or smaller machine can be a pain to work on, just due to their small size. A correctly built 700 sized machine will be more stable and not as flitty as a small machine.

My machines range from 500 to 700 sizes. I am not a pro pilot, but my average machine is a 700 sized competitive machine. I like the stability and performance, even though it isn't intended to be flown in competition. I do like my 600s. They handle almost the same as my 700s, and I have just now started actively flying them again.

So again, in the long run, take all the input, and decide what it is that you want. I seriously would not recommend anything larger than a 600 for a beginner, but after that, the world is your oyster.

Have fun.

each blade length EE, just under 5ft long heli so think of the room a plank of that size eats up.

I don't know if your flying a 900 right now or not, a prerequisite for 3d is the same as guitar, practice practice practice the rudiments first until you get sick of them and can fly through them without a doubt whatsoever.. I would suggest you do that for a year and then leave it alone for a whole week or more . When you come back you will see if you have a weak spot or difficulty in a specific orientation. I asked a young guy who is in the same town how he got so good (top four in a competition at ircha for 3d this year) he said he used to come home from school and practice for two to four hours on the simulator every day for over four years.

4 hours a day for 4 years sounds right. I think 3d helicopters are harder than guitar much more hand eye coordination. The relation is the fact that for most people the brain imprints the move through muscle memory. I'm trying to get there with help rather than go it alone.

I don't make the rules, after four solid years of cp 20 minutes a day myself I can do pretty good in the sim and irl although it takes guts to try things irl compared to the sim. The must have part is dependent upon the size of flight area you have access to. Maybe look into the Devil550 for both quality and size at a price that won't break the bank should you begin to attempt 3d, and respect its rotors as you would something larger.
