without problems you can never burn receiver, because the system has adopted the nine eagles spirit-only (closed battery compartment)

So they use the heavy 150 mAh lipo, same as the Hyperion and Intellect 160, that also weigh 4.7 gr. So we can gain some by using a 4 gr Thunder Power 160, or the even lighter 125 mAh Thunder Power, which is 3.4gr.

29.7gr for the heli without battery is a little heavy indeed, the Solo Pro weighs less with battery. The main motor must have had an upgrade then as well, if I were to add 5 gr to a stock Solo Pro, it might barely lift off...

How long can the Bravo SX fly with that 150 mAh lipo?

I understand some demonstration units were sold on a show, but haven't seen it listed in webshops yet.

just noticed this thread! the Bravo SX should be really cool to fly around...one setback is the fuselage material, my experience with the Bravo's fuselage was an extreme pain of taking it off and putting it back together..it's extremely hard to click and manipulate,should ave been solid practical plastic even with some added weight

don know about weight,yes it's canopy material and it's clicking points are all flimzy took me hours to take off and couldn't put it back together correctly,it should be way more friendly..solid plastic clickings should be the way to go.

The big problem with complete canopies is that any canopy must be light. Making them stronger adds weight. However there could be a better design that comes off easier. Wasting a lot of time removing a tiny canopy is beyond a lot of members' patience.

On the larger helis like the Esky Dauphin, Esky Hunter and the Esky Robins the canopy halves are bonded. The blades need to be taken off th remove the canopies. This is a PITA!

The Esky V4 splits in the center into a front and rear half and is easier to remove. Maybe that type is the solution here. The tail section might still be a problem with the rear motor and blades.

I wonder how this will do in sales next to the Trex 100? Is this slated for holidays or in new year?

Wow! It moves so fast, and yet very smooth control in turns and when going slow. And that scale canopy looks so cool.

The music on the vid is a little distorted though, you might want to alter that if possible, but otherwise, great vid and nice flying!

Hey guys. Just wanted to pop in and let you know that parts have been released, and helis should arrive late November, early December. I've got a unit in hand (dark blue) and will get some video up shortly. Looks like NE got just about everything right. Still using the SP flybar, but it's a very smooth flyer. Don't know if the flybar will ever be an issue, unless you try and fly this in other ways then intended. It should definitely be enjoyed in stock form, atleast for awhile. Punch out isn't as responsive as the SP due to the added weight, but flight time is coming in around 7-8 minutes with the 150 pack (more to come on this, I've only got a few packs in it). Everything your seeing in that video is spot on. The RX-01 does a great job. It does what you expect, without any funky characteristics. Control is precise, and I think the added weight actually helps it. The best thing is it looks flat out awesome in the air. I'm a huge fan of the SP, but this little bird is just too much fun.

Not initially. Full set with Aluminum case will be available first. EZBind hopefully mid-late December.

Well, since the new batteries would still fit the current charger, the changes, if any, can't be that critical, and might be just a matter of trimming of one ridge to get full compatibility. Not that it would be advisable to use a stock 120 battery in a heavier heli. They already don't live long in the Solo Pro...

Do you have a precision scale so you can post accurate weight with and without battery?
Any "original" battery will work on the SX. Any "keyed" SP battery would need to be cut. I flew a Solo/Draco 110 battery, and CG wasn't great. The length of the 150 helps bring the weight closer to mainshaft.
