I think the FAIFA will be perfect with the helical main and crown gears!

Only think I would work over is the Head Dampeners.

Maybe take some of the new Features from the 600.

600 N.

After flying my Faifa for most of the time I started to miss nitro engines and all that fun.

- New system for crown to front TT gear mesh
- Wider boom
- Better tail blade holder distance setup, or no setup needed as in 99,99% of helis
- Get rid of TT servo commands. Little pros, a few cons.
- Unified lipo placement.
- More space for new LE motors (length and elevator arm if it remains with TT servos)
- A bit wider frame to avoid vibes too
- Competition arms and Low Rider head standard
- Helical all over standard (maybe belt?)
- Painted canopy with the kit

That's just off the top of my head.

Please, please, please:

- No need for adjustment of gear height combined with crown and front TT gear height.

Thumbs up

Marcos, THAT's good and very relevant feedback that I am sure Gavin and Khun Kasama can use pro-actively!

I do understand some of my "desires" oppose the very basics of the Kasama philosophy. TT servo shafts, thin frame and boom, adjustable gear train are trade marks of the Kasama design. I am not expecting them to change those any time soon, just voicing my opinion in hopes they might consider them.

I believe Kasama can do a brilliant helicopter with exceptional quality without going to extremes in innovation. I would focus on simplicity, low parts count, robustness and precision. My take is double stage gear trains are much more interesting these days than normal big main gear designs. Be it full gears or a belted first stage you get a very thin profiled frame as Kasama likes.

Maybe I am too much into European helis after I got my TDR, but that design, with the Diabolo, Voodoo and Banshee are a nice trend. Banshee actually, that could have easily been a Kasama design!

If redisigning the FAIFA is not planned, I would avoid the temptation to go into the 800 until that market grows and maybe do a stretched 500 in 470mm blades like Logo 400SE, Voodoo 400, stretched Protos, or even do a great 450 like the Warp 360 seems to be.

Default Smaller Size

I might be in the minority here: I have the FAIFA and love it. But I would also love to see a 400 to 500 size KASAMA FAIFA. that would be the BOMB!

i think if you want low parts count and design for dummies then get a different heli! most of the unike features are what defines Kasama!
+1 for the slanted gears all over!
i agree also the new head LRH could be standard!
wider frames and bigger boom would be nice to reduce vibe issues but would mean more weight and less efficency and a major redesign! i can live with the frame like it is!
may be a spacer or bigger patts for the elevator servo to mount to widen the range of motors to be used!

Just a few things for me:

- slanted gears
- LRH and Comp Grips as standard

I'm happy with the Kasama design philosophy - for simplicity I have a Logo.

I have chosen other helis for simplicity. I then learnt performance and simplicity are not mutually opposed. TDR and Diabolo are brilliant performers without the complexity. Voodoo too. Logos of course. There are these options in the market and Kasama could be in the same league without loosing its appeal. It can still have innovative features and not be complex. Rotor head is brilliant, tail almost as well, lightness, exceptional materials, great parts fit, all are great qualities that can remain. Crown gear could be as simple as going Mod 1.25 as the TDR. A wider boom is just a functional change, no need to have it thin. I just mentioned the things that make me choose it the least among my fleet. It's flying every now and then.

For me its the one heli I can always go back to and just have a ball with. I love it, simply awesome.

I would not change the batt locations. I would however make some sort of change to how the ESC mounts and allow for the wires coming out going to the batts. I would do away with the crown gear too and go for a more conventional set up like some others as this is prob the only weak point. Everyone always moans about it.
A thicker boom only for aesthetics as it kinda looks a bit odd with the size of the canopy then the tiny boom sticking out of the back.

I love the looks of the thin boom, but it catches and transmits all the vibes!!!

I don't own any of the Kasama choppers, but I always loved the look of the Srimok 90 nitro and I would really like to see an electric version of it. The canopy and the carbon skids look amazing. I know the carbon skids were weak, but they make the chopper look really nice. I don't really like the Faifa canopy. If Kasama made a new Faifa with all the mentioned upgrades and made it look like the Srimok nitro, I would buy it for sure.

I've been looking for electric conversions of the nitro, but I haven't found anyone that has done that yet.
