Nine Eagles BRAVO III Coax is here!

We just got the brand new Bravo III coax in from Nine Eagles...I have to say, this is by far their best effort so far. I got a few test flights in, and to say the least I'm impressed. Between the swashplate and the transmitter you have 4 rates to choose from. I have only flown it on the inner swash balls so far, but it's much faster than I anticipated. Unless you have a gymnasium or large basement, I don't see a need for the outer balls. As expected, it's super stable coming off the ground, and has a nice pyro rate. The battery cage has a small cover for it to give it that "scale" look during flight, but NE decided to go with a screw instead of a tension fit, so it makes it inconvenient. The fuselage seems durable, until you get back to the tail. Plastic is pretty thin, and I can see needing some CA to "mend" the seam after a heavy crash. It has 2 little LED's up front, one blue and one white. Gives it a nice look in a darker room. I've bounced it off the ground from 3-4 feet up and the skids held well. Seem much nicer than the SOLO/Free Spirit skids. The motors definitely have more pop to them, and the servo response is pretty smooth. I've only had a few flights, but so far, this is by far the best coax Nine Eagles has made.

Pretty impressive! I usually don't like scale bodies, but looks like they did a nice job. Can't wait to see some flight vids!

That is a nice looking coax, but with all due respect, this forum is now the quadrocopter/tricopter forum. Coaxials now have their own forum.

Thanks,

Very nice coaxial helicopter! I really like that scale body and seems like it would fit nicely on the pro solo.

I placed my order for the Bravo right after Rick posted. I will do a review with Picks also after I get it. I will review it compared to the mCXs I have and the Solo Pro II.

Razor,
The promotional video doesn't do it justice...I'm trying to get a chance to shoot some video. Getting together with someone seems to be the problem right now...
