I inspected it up close at IRCHA. It doesn't share many parts with the oxy 5, though there are some. It is of a similar design to the oxy 5 (similar not same). It is physically larger than the oxy 5 (which they indeed did have nearby). There will be a 2nd 700 coming as well at some point in the future.

I really like the lightweight 700 concept, very refreshing to see a change from the every more over-powered heavyweight designs. Only thing i really wish Oxy had done different on this one was to go for a 12mm (or preferably larger) hollow main shaft. It doesn't have to add weight, in fact it can be lighter AND stiffer compared to a solid 10mm shaft. This is the way every other manufacturer has gone at 700 size. Even the ultra light (2.4Kg) Henseleit TDSF uses a 14mm main shaft.

On the other hand I appreciate that many people wont care about this detail as long as it proves to be reliable in the longer term. I'm guessing that the 10mm shaft was used to achieve some level of commonality of design with the Oxy5.

I am a little disappointed. On the customer side, it may not be a good idea buying an oxy flash because certainly a "real" 700 will be released in the near future and I will not want to have an undervalued heli to sell.
Your thoughts.
I'd like to know where you got your info? And what makes you think it isn't a "real" 700? If you come here and post things as absolute you should at least post where you got your info or people are likely to attack your post. I've seen the Flash up close and there have been pics posted all over the internet. The designs are similar to the Oxy 5, yes, no different than the Kraken 580's similarity to the Kraken 700.

The answer to your question is in this thread. Have you read this thread?

There was a time Helifreak was a nice place to have a conversation. Now, the site seems to have been taken by bullies.

No problem, I will ATTACK BACK!!

People gave you their Thoughts and you didn't like it.
is a TDSF not a real 700?

if it comes out from the manufacturer swinging 700mm blades its a 700 size machine. oxy is not selling 700 stretch kits for an oxy 5... so why would you not call it a REAL 700...

Yes, some polite guys answered accordingly, but an as**le attacked me. You know what I am talking about. Don't pretend you don't.

If the heli uses OXY 5 parts, can't take 710 blades and runs a 10mm shaft, can it be named a "real" 700? If you don't like the word "real", replace it for whatever word you want, but I bet you got my point.

It doesn't mean it won't fly great, but I highly doubt this is going to be the "final" 700 class heli from Linx.

Why they call it FLASH?

My guess is because the other 700 heli that Oxy are working on will be the Chronos (Chronos and Flash are both DC comics characters)

Wow!! Why so combative? No one has attacked you, just people with Oxy product knowledge/Reps and others who have seen the prototypes trying to clear up some of your misconceptions.

May i also remind everyone.. What you have seen or heard about are
P R O T O T Y P E S, its highly likely that there will be changes.

Nothing wrong with that wish. So the big question remains 'when'. I think everyone has accepted Christmas 21 is not going to happen. So anyone have any inside info or even a good guess as to when the Flash will actually be in regular customer's hands? I still think it will be a while yet, I recall someone saying they were making some changes from the prototype that was at IRCHA, and of course COVID is still having an impact in Vietnam. It's feeling like 'mid 22' to me but that's a pure guess based only on gut feel.

Constant testing and many changes to the Flash since IRCHA.

Lockdowns and work stoppages/stay at home edicts in Vietnam have seriously disrupted business over the last year. OXY lost some of their local vendors and in house employees permanently and are having to replace these sources.

No one wants to see the Flash on the market more than Luca.

Have you read this thread? It doesn't seem so when you're the only one saying something different. All I asked was where you got your info or what leads you to believe "this is not a real 700".

If this is some personal feeling based on what you read here, point to it or state your case. Also, FYI this is forum. How someone intends to relay things over the internet is not always the way they are taken.

Man it has been quiet, zero updates. I figure Luca has been healed up but wonder where all is at over there?

Yeah no word from the team pilots nor Oxy reps about the Flash these last couple of weeks. I figure everyone is just waiting to hear about the developments regarding Luca's condition at this point. Sending positive vibes to Luca... I hope he gets well soon.

At this point the Oxy Flash release seems quite unimportant compared to Luca's recovery.

I think the guy needs a break. He looks exhausted in the last video he posted.
