That's what I was wondering too.... they seem indestructible.... worst case you push out the OWB and put in a new one.

If it is just an issue of rebuilding the OWB check out this thread, it is how I do it.

No need to be concerned, I bought a wreck for spares and the hub and gears were missing. Yeah, I'm just going to keep it for spares for now, hopefully I don't crash my currently flying 550. I like having a 550 that I can share batteries with the 700e.

Rats. And I thought my daughter knew her geography... I guess I don't know where the field is. Search for "Maplewood field" in google and I am sure you will find it.

I sold my 550 !! Today I shipped it out. The 550 was one of the best machines I had ever owned. I finally had to get rid of it because it flew so different from the rest of my fleet it was holding back my progress.

Your best but you sold it? That's odd. It flew differently... How so? And how did it hold you back?

The 550 has a very heavy blade loading, my other 2 helis are 6HV. The 6HV has a MUCH lighter blade loading, so they fly completely different. My first flight on the 6HV after flying the 550 would be a total write off as I had to readjust my flying.

I see. I hope my 550 and 50 pair up good enough to not hold my learning back... with my goal (ability) being smooth 3D it probably doesn't matter?

Are you getting a Goblin? I see your sig.

I never had a chance to fly the Fusion 50, so I am not familiar with it's flight characteristics, but the Outrage helis had very consistent flight characteristics throughout the entire lineup.


Yes on the gobbler, should pickup my kit first week of april.

Nice you will love it! Today I got to see a lot of Goblin... friend Dan has one... I got some video I'll PM you as to not derail this thread further. The Goblin could be my next heli... um... unless it's the 7HV, X7, or Fusion 90. but i still love my 550!
