Miniature Aircraft Furion 450...

Hey guys just wondering if any of you guys have owned or flown this bird. I just picked up what looks like a good condition used one. It has a FBL conversion, looking forward to getting it setup, and flying!

Yup this is a good looking bird, the previous owner did a nice job converting it to FBL!

Great flying mini guy. What set up are you running?

You've flown quite a few of the "450" class helicopters from what I've seen in this forum. Do you have a favorite of all the 450's you've flown so far? One that you always seem to come back too?

I also have really enjoyed your Trex 500 videos. That one seems like a nice flying helicopter too. I've been flying a 450X all summer and fall and have been thinking of moving up a size. Something I can build this winter to have ready by spring. I'm wanting to stay with 6s/3000 packs as I could use these in my Extreme Fight 60" Edge also.

Yup one in the same! Meaning I am Trexwilly!

I really like the 450s, I have a shoe box full of batteries and can go to my local field and fly for hours without having to charge!

I am enjoying the quite birds right now, the Mini Protos and this Furion 450 are really my favorites right now, but they all are really good, I have a good fleet of high quality 450s right now!

What's the next 450 you have your eyes on?

I agree with the convenience of the 450's. I've got half a dozen packs now and will probably pick up a few more.

Just checked out Forza thread. Looks like a sweet machine. I see Horizon now has them in stock and will be stocking parts. My LHS gives me great deals on Horizon products and I will be able to buy everything from him. Definitely let us know your impressions if you pick one up.

I'm assuming you are running 6s packs in the Furion, which packs do you prefer?

The Nano Tech 1300 long packs fit and balance the best.

I have the Beam,and while its a great heli its pretty close to the Furion.I also have the Forza(2) and fly them the most,even quieter than my Beam but tighter cyclic/ head.Hope to see you try one and give an opinion on the Forza.
Where are you getting parts?

You mean parts for the Furion?


I placed an order from Heli Proz, and I also had Miniature Aircraft add a couple things to the order... They are owned by the same company, and I think they share space, so I ordered from both places, just had heli Proz ship, and MA add my stuff to that order...

If I do the Forza I will still have to get it from RC Japan, because I don't want either kit HH has listed... I just want the assembly kit... it is 24000

The price varys with the dollar and Yen,I was lucky and got mine for $209 from Rc Japan.Ive heard the Jr servos and esc aren't worth the extra price,I went with Turngy 306hv and Kst 215,Caslte Edge 50 lite,Yep40.Nose weight/ esc needs to be light.

I caught your latest Furion video on the "did you fly today" thread. Looks like your getting very comfortable with it and it seems to be performing well for you. New field and a cameraman too.

Well done.
