I've been out for a while and I want a new hotliner


I've been out flying heli's for the last year or so and now I want a new hotliner. I had a Smart, hacker B408s w/4.4:1, 9 cells and a 13x10.5 RFM prop.

I want something in the 50-65" range that will be very fast. I really like to just do the climb and dive thing and just go balistically fast. My smart got radared at about 155, and I'd like to get something atleast as fast. I'd like to stay in the 10 cell range, but will do whatever(I'm thinking about a full f5b setup, but possibly one 1 step slower since I havn't flown planes in about a year).

What suggestions do you have?

The new Nike 2 looks interesting. See the "Finally! The Nike 2!" thread.

I don't think that the nike2 will be strong enough for what I need. I might go the S9 route. I was also thinking about the Banana. Its smaller (more smart sized). I am just not sure that Sub C cells can fit in it. I thing that I would have to something like the FAUP's. MY friens was running those in his F5D planes and he really didn't like them because they were almost zero tolerance. any overdischarging and they were toast.

Dieter has the Vanessa and Lea models at a decent price. If I had the extra cash flow I would pick one up. Actually, I'm trying to figure out how to scrape up a few for the Vanessa. -- John P

David,

You probably want one of these electric planes...

Ocelot
Nemisis
Banana
Mini NYX

Those are the hot 60" planes.... If you want to spend more get an s9.
