Default is there actually a 800 size heli?

I did some google and i found result for trex 800 and other 800 size heli. Is there an actual 800 size heli, or are people just putting an 800 size main blade on a 700 size heli and calling it a 800 size heli?

Mikado has an 800 size heli, the Logo extreme. They showcased them at IRCHA this year...needless to say they were incredible.

would like to see a side by side comparison to the 700N...just to see how much bigger it is or is it just an extended boom so you can run 800 blades ?

Align sells an 800 size boom and blades, but I guess not really a "true" 800 size, the "Extreme" is on the way, sooner or later, lol... I love size in a heli, but man, as if 12S batts setups and esc's don't cost enough, a 14S and super costly escs to power them, damn, that's way out of my budget..

The Mikado XXtreme is a REAL 800... huge.. from the ground up.. not just a stretch.

REAL 800s? Bergen Intrepid EB, Tazer 800, Intrepid Turbine. All swing 800+ blades and have been around longer than the XXtreme.

This is not a visual but, a mathematical side by side might be more objective.

Disc area using pi(r)^2 assuming 200mm head, bolt to bolt:

of 700

3.14(800)^2 = 2,009,600mm^2 (2.01m^2), roughly 6.6 square feet

of 800

3.14(900)^2 = 2,543,400mm^2, (2.54m^2), roughly 8.33 square feet

Differences:

2.54-2.01 = .53m^2, roughly 1.74 square feet of additional disc area.

2.54/2.01 = 1.263, or 800 is 26.3% larger than 700.

2.01/2.54 = .791, or 700 is 21% smaller than 800.

There is a guy at Van Nuys that sits in a lawn chair and flies one.

It also comes in turbine.

I think I have seen that Futaba Rep. Small World.

I imagine they fly great, but the crash cost must be a killer!

the logal xxtreme is loaded with titanium parts, since that is the strongest metal i would assume its tough but if you break one of those parts i am sure its not going to be cheep.

800's are nothing new but the Xxtreme is a fully 3D capable 800 size heli. There are plenty of videos on YouTube and others show-casing what can be done with the Xxtreme if you've got the skills.

Goblin has a 770 in the works but I have no idea if ita a grown up change or just a stretch.
