Default new 700 bird for sport flying

Hi guys,
I need an advise regarding a new purchase,

would it be better buying a MSH protos v2 or should I go for a goblin 700 size heli, and why?

Keeping in mind that the price of the Protos V2 is nearly half of the 700

cheers

Either is fine, go with whatever you can get parts for easily.

You might want to look at the Compass Chronos as well.

Low parts count, extremely precise, and very well made.

I have to second that option. The Chronos is hands down the most direct, connecting feeling heli I have ever flown-no comparison!

You will get different advice from different people. What is important for you? Price? Parts availability? Commonality to be able to get support? Looks? Based on what's important for you make your pick.

Logo 700 would be my recommendation.

Insert your favorite brand here.
I'd go with the Goblin. They look great when flying big air.

Team compass is very active today.

Take your pick or buy what looks appealing to you. All current 700 models are pretty damn good.

I just ordered a 700X, couldn't beat the deal. Currently have a 7HV as well, great heli, but I wanted another 700 and couldn't beat the value of the 700X.

With THAT said, buy what you like... with today's FBL units, everything flys well and pretty much everything on the market is a solid heli.

If only they had a traditional FBL head for the Chronos I might consider one. It's everything I like in a heli except for that.

here in the UK, the MSH Proto Max V2 beats the goblin in price by big margin, but in the parts deparement the goblin wins.

The FBL head on the Chronos does not have the flaws that some of the later, driverless heads have. The Compass/SZ head has been on the market for years (in several incarnations) and has been proven in the field.

It is the smoothest, most precise 700 size head I have ever flown-PERIOD!

I ve always fancied one of the Compass Helis, especially, the warp 360.

is the Chronos mentioned above also known as 6HV.?
what is it about the FBL on the Chronos that makes it special compared to other makes?

The Chronos is the revised version of the 7hv. The 6hv is a 600 class heli, the Chronos and 7hv are 700 class. The Chronos maintains the ability to adjust the hardness of the dampening, while using a driverless head. The driver arms are flexible enough to allow this, but are still very strong.

The Chronos feels so precise and direct for numerous reasons. The swash driver arms are completely vertical and parallel the main shaft. This gives a 1:1 ratio of swash movement to blade movement in any position the swash can be in. This combined with the control ratio the servo to swash links have makes for a truly amazing flying heli. It never feels like it runs out of cyclic control, no matter how much you are digging into the collective.

If I was in the market for a 700 ....
There's one of the best endorsements I've heard.
Only other head I would compare it to is the RC-TEK
