Thanks.

Yes...  They are ok.. I had a Vision 50 (nitro).    The design is not great..   The heli was obviously designed originally for push/pull bell cranks and they switched to direct servos.. The end result is the heli ends up very tail heavy so you need to run a big rx pack up front to get things to balance.
The 2nd design problem is the weak point where frames join the rear landing skid struts. A slot has been cut for the mounting hardware to fit into leaving approx. 3-4mm where the tank sits..  One heavy landing will see this crack.  
That being said it flew alright and is very light but its certainly not a heli i would recommend to anyone... I think the 50e and 90 Nitro are much better designs..

Hi Heraldo.  Dunno, still thinking about it.  There is one on CT at the moment.
