What will be your next heli?

Everyone always has the "next one" in the back of their mind. What will yours be? And what Heli is your current favorite? My favorite after only 4 flights is the Swift. Number 2 has to be my Eco-8. (It just plain flys good). My next heli, I am thinking about a Predator gasser. I guess for something different. Still clean, no nitro mess to clean up. I am spending too much money on batteries. This would be my have to go the flying field heli.

I'm going for the Raptor e550/620 or maybe even a Swift 550/620 if they ever release them.

I like the e Raptor since someone (Gary/Askman) already made the new lower frames to stuff my a123 batteries in that means more flying and less fab-n time for me!

i have a Predator gasser,Swift,logo 10 and a few micros.
By far the pred. wins,so easy to fly,almost hovers by itself.
you will only need the heli, a tin of gas,your tranny and a bit of carpet to kneel on to start it!
Top your RX bat.on the way to the field and fly for 30 mins. on 1 tank,no mess,just a great flying machine...
Beleive me, your skills will improve quickly..

Deem,

I do not know if you have the equivalent fuel in the Ukraine, but here in North America, we have Coleman Fuel, for their camp stoves and its' equivalents. It is low octane gasoline without the "safety smell" additives.

It works very well in the Zenoah gas engines we use in our Predators and is very "house/wife" friendly

thanks syclic, i know about it, but i can't find this fuil in ukraine. i have tested special chemistry-clear low-octan gazoline --- works good about 10 minutes, but i've afraid to using for long-time work.
and 14 month ago i've tested big electric heli (swift), and now it is best feeling and best choice for me. my nitro (millenium-II) and gasoline (predator-gasser) has sleeping last year
