    So which one of these would you go for? I'm just not a fan of plastic frames but not really a Goblin guy either. That Havic paint scheme is nice tho... 700-HAVOK-final2-zoom.jpg Mikado 700.jpg

    I would say SAB all the way, but you say you are not a Goblin guy. The Mikado, although great helicopters, I have never been a fan of. Align also makes some 700's as well as Gaui. I know there are more than a few that like the Gaui's lol. They should be here shortly haha.

    Well I do have a 570 but don’t fly it much. I had a Logo 800 but these new 700 are completely redesigned

    It seems that you are leaning toward the Logo lol. I have always liked the Goblin line, but in reality, they are all great. You are looking at top end kits and there is no going wrong with any of them.

    Always thought about a Gaui. Never had one. I like that 3 blade kit. But Amain doesn’t carry them and I have to get it from there. Reward points I’ve got a bunch

    If your looking for a solid reliable 700 and don't want the Goblin or the the Mikado because of plastic then look at Synergy.

    The Gaui is a 700 class but is a smaller 700.

    lol, I have or have had every Synergy kit except the N9. Great machines for sure and really hold their value. I went and ordered the Goblin. I'll post some pics when I get it...

    That looks so impressive as a kit, your going to have no hope of the wife not noticing it when it's built.

    Yeah the matte finish is really nice but your hands need to be clean before you touch it. Any grease or dirt is hard to wipe off...
