My Next Heli?

Hey guys. I am looking into getting a new air frame to fly (after getting tired of Raptor). I have all the electronics and a
OS 50 Hyper.
My question to you is what would you recommend that I put it in?
Thanks!
Doran

It would help to know what your looking for thats different. For a practical helicopter the Raptors are hard to beat. The differences in performance are slight between the major brands, most differences are from setup. A few models have a small advantage. My best performers where my RJX 50, and a Century NX. For looks, its also about how there setup, canopies, landing skids, exhaust, all make a difference.

Then I would suggest the newly released Century N640. Go with the FBL version if you want to go FBL or the FB version if you want to stick with the flybar.. As you plan to us the OS50, rather then the OS 55, then use 600 to 610mm blades.

Later if you want to up the power, then go with the OS55 or YS56 and put on some 620mm or 640mm blades and have at it.

I assure you that either way, they will put a big smile on your face.
