Default Electric F3C Machine?

I'm wanting to get into doing some F3C flying with my 500 for now, but for moving up to a more serious machine I have been researching some of the Electric 90's out there. It seems the choices are Kasama Srimok 90E, Rave 90 ENV, the upcoming T-Rex 700E F3C, or the Avant Aurora 90.

Any recommendations or concerns on the above machines? Any I'm missing from the list? Anybody on here using electric for F3C?

Rave 90 ENV would probably be the best of those you listed, overall.

Rave ENV all the way!
None of the others are FAI capable besides the Trex F3C and the Trex is unproven.

BTW, electric ENVs took the two top spots at the 2010 AMA Nationals in FAI

Any true to the rumor that FBL setups will be allowed for 2014 for F3C competition? Is so, what might be a good FBL helicopter?

I just check the AMA competition rules for 2013-2014 and no FBL setups allowed there.

Default f3c

for me the best machine F3C is the sylph e12 pro jr;
but there are other alternative;
I ride a logo 600 SE which is a class 90 with the weight of a class 50 in a uvular fuselage;
good flights
