If you can't fly sustained inverted then your hardly a 3D guy so you'll be plenty happy with a gasser. Go to Youtube or RunRyder and search the videos. Gassers are plenty aerobatic and 3D'able, you just can't judge 'em up against a lighter nitro ship.

Keep a Nitro ship if you want but I'm done. No more nitro for me. The thing that did it for me was not so much the mess and fuss and cost of the glow fuel but the rising cost of the engines. To get the latest and greatest 55 class set-up you'll have to spend about $300 on an engine and $80-$125 for the best pipes. NO EFFING WAY for me. Sure you can find a deal or a blow-out price once in a while but double the cost of the engine/pipe than it was a couple years ago..... NOPE. Tower/Hobbico wants about $465.00 for the latest OS .55 DRS and OS pipe. I simply refuse to do it when there are so many other options these days.
