Default Synergy general question

The Synergy helicopters have caught my eye and I am rather interested in these models. The upcoming E5 is of particular interest.

However, there seems to have been quite a few being sold in the last few weeks on this and other forums.
Just makes me wonder a little.

Only because I compare to my Beam E4 and my Miniature Aircraft Furion 6, which I find to be of amazing quality and not often seen in the classifieds.

Any thoughts anyone?

Just reviewed the first 500 for sale adds here and only saw 4 for sale. One was a duplicate, that is only three out of 500 adds.

Yeah you don't see a whole lot of them for sale. But what you do see is the airframe still pull almost retell money

I remember one time seeing 3 TDRs for sale in the first page in the for sale section, and those are regarded as one of the best 700 out there. Sounds like coincidence to me.

I think many pilots are like me, in that we like to try new helis.. I personally dont have the storage space or $$$$ to have a garage full of helis... So ill fly a heli until im bored with it or something new appears on the market that i want to try and sell of the airframe...

Synergy E6/7 is a fantastic machine and i see no reason why the E5 wont be too... Im wanting to try a E5 an recently sold off a heli to make room for it...

+1 This really is very very nice I just got one yesterday & now have an X7, whiplash and an e7 . Imho the whip is the highest quality machine but only a slight edge over the synergy, due to not polishing some parts,I would assume to save money for something that really doesn't need to be done. The synergy is significantly lighter than the others. I purchased this to decide which two helicopters I would keep and soon hopefully we'll have a goblin to choose from. As of right now the X7 will be sacrificed. imho the x7 isn't in the same class for quality of materials and parts. I am very pleased with this purchase.

I had a real hard time selling mine with 25 flights on it, no crashes. Practically new with upgrades and blades. Took almost a month to sell and soooo many penny pinchers that I finally sold it locally at a loss.

You can't judge a heli's quality by the F/S section though, you'll have to see it in person or read the forums about it.

I couldn't get rid of mine fast enough for various reasons. I regretted the purchase almost immediately, but that's just my experience with Synergy.

Why regret?

I am hooked on Synergy!

I own one E6 and one E7. Previously owned an N5.
I have had great success with the Synergy machines and the support is amazing. I am looking forward to getting an E5. Got mine on preorder already!
I sold my N5 a couple of months back. I no longer wanted Nitro. Miss having it at times :-(
It sold fairly quickly on the forums.

I also own a Furion 6 which is a very good machine. Looked at the whiplash but I did have a bad experience getting fbl head parts for the Furion around the time the whippy first came out. Evidently tooling time was being concentrated on the whippy. That is what MA told me at the time anyway.

I would not hesitate buying any Synergy machine.

I LOVE my Synergy helicopters. I too have an E5 package on order with Ralph at fblrotors.com. I have flown about every brand on the market, save some of the boutique shops, and even my TDR doesn't make me smile like the E7 and E750 stretch. They are smooth, fast, and very capable machines. I did have on and off belt issues, but most of those were my own doing. Now that the TT kit is out, I haven't looked back.

As for why there are some for sale, NOTHING like Align/Compass/GAUI and even Logo lately. All kits come up for sale, people like what they like.

No deposit required, just have to put on the list. Once we get an ETA he will ask deposits.

How about a guess the price contest. I am guessing $679.
Winner gets to a Rail Blade holder :-)

Looks like I may have overshot the price a bit!
