Default ultimate power heli?

I'm curious as to what you'd build as the absolute most powerful electric heli combo. Something that just shreds your eyebrows off with horsepower. My personal choice would start with a Minicopter Diabolo Black. Not sure about the whole drivetrain yet but would probably be leaning towards a big Pyro.

Open discussion so have at it. Any and all opinions welcome. Even discontinued models are considered.

Egodrift, Xnova or Pyro.
Diabolo or Goblin Raw

That's easy: Velos 880



2 complete 700-size power trains (2 motors, 2 sets of 12S batteries, 2 160A ESC) driving 1 mainmast turning 880mm blades
I got to see OnTheSnap fly it at Component Ave while he was helping Velos with the prototyping.


Unfortunately, they don't sell them anymore. But, you can find them used and Velos still sells parts (I think)

Given the unavailability of the Velos, I'd say the Shape S8. The Shape has a massive main gear and huge one-way assembly. Put a Scorpion 4540 in there, the biggest ESC you can find, and highest C rated packs. It would be absolutely scary.

Just for giggles tied 32 lbs of lead to see if it would fly.
It did.

I'd forgotten about the Velos. What a cool heli.

I had exactly that. Sold it to another HF member. She was bad to the bone.

Diablo is the most powerful machine i've ever seen in person. Clearly it comes down to electronics, but the distribution and efficiency of the diablo is insane.

Incorrect, those are the old school pins that add 0.5 horsepower to offset the weight.

I always wanted to build a 16s T-Rex 800DFC. I think that would be a monster. But I've been on this 5 year lowered headspeed kick so...

I saw the tile and thought Power Heli/Power Heli Shop/Trex Store changed their name again.

What would be the smallest single rotor heli capable of lifting an adult human?
