Default Same than .50 nitro?

Hi guys,

Is this possible to stay in electric but with the same size, feeling, flight-time than with a .50 nitro?

If yes, do you have a model to suggest me? 500? 550?

Thank you in advance!

Trex 600 is a 50 size heli and performs just as good as nitro even better if you ask me.
Everyone that i know who has one loves it. What could be better just plug in your battery and your off and flying. No starting equipment no stupid glo plugs to mess with simplesity at its best. As you can tell i hate nitro birds......LOL

The 500 sized helis use 425 to 430mm mainblades, so are substantially smaller then a 50 nitro.

I found the Swift 16 or 550SE (about the size of a 30 nitro) on 6S packs will comfortably swing 515mm to 560mm blades and have much the same feel as a light and powerful 50 nitro, but these Swifts had more pop.

I found the T600E (swings the same 600mm blades as a 50 and is the same size) on 6S to be fly much like a 50 sized nitro that uses the older OS46. It had a very noticeable lack of power compared to the Swift 550's on the same battery packs.

The Swift 620SE (also swings 600mm to 620mm blades and is about the same size as a 50 nitro) on 8S is an hoot. The same size as the 50 nitros with about the same power to weight as them, but again a little more pop. On 10S, it is a popper rocket that no 50 nitro can hang with.

Due to the high cost of 8S and 10S packs. IMHO, the best pop for the buck is the Swift 550 series on 6S.

The only drawback is you only get that "power and pop" for 4 minutes or so.

the T600 and the Raptor E620 will both give equal or better performance then the glow versions if setup properly,
I have the E620 and on 10s lipo it rocked with 7 minute flights it would out perform a glow raptor, I now fly it on 15sA123, it does not have the same power it had on 10s but, I still get 7 minutes of very good performance better then a OS 50 with a muscle pipe but not quite as strong as a very nicley setup Hyper 50 and muscle pipe. it probably has more power but you notice the extra weight of the 15s so I would have to say the Hyper 50 would have the edge. and the first 3- 4 minutes, really rock but in the last 3-4 is where you will notice the hyper would have the advantage. but since I can recharge in 12 minutes and swap packs faster then i can refuel , not to mention no clean up I prefer the Epower over nitro!
