” . . . . the Whiplash nitro kits are just about ready for the public release!” says our good friend Mike Fortin. Well, that is good news as many have been anxiously waiting for the second heli in the Whiplash Heli series. Mike had the opportunity to build one of the first production kits and he has graciously posted some pics of the completed build as well as offered information and thoughts about the Whiplash Nitro kit. Thanks Mike for sharing with everyone.
Continue on to check out the pics and Mike’s thoughts.
Check back with RCHR for the Whiplash Nitro release information as it becomes available.
New: Whiplash Nitro from Miniature Aircraft USA
The wait will soon be over, the Whiplash nitro kits are just about ready for the public release! I had the pleasure of building one of the first production kits and must say that the build was extremely simply with the entire build and electronics install taking just about 6 hours.
The Whiplash is the new flagship model from wwwMiniatureAircraftUSA.com and is proudly distributed worldwide by www.HeliWholesaler.com
As you can see, packaging is spectacular and also included is the manual on CD as well as an ultra nifty MA towel for building and or sweating after a flight…the choice is yours!
You will immediately notice that the Whiplash models are a departure from previous models from MA USA however the quality, craftsmanship and ability to remain based and manufactured here in the USA has not changed.
The Whiplash nitro is the 2nd of 3 new Whiplash models to be released and will soon be followed by the highly anticipated gas version, the Whiplash G.
My Whiplash nitro and electric are both outfitted identically with electronics including the following:
-> Futaba CGY750 FBL/Gov
-> Futaba 255HV’s (8v)
-> Align DS650 (tail & throttle on 5.2v)
-> Mavrikk G5 FBL 690′s & Mavrikk 105 FBL Tail Blades
-> 2650mah rx pack
-> Futaba 6203SB mini rx
-> SwitchGlo Pro glow igniter
-> RC Booya mounts from www.RCBooya.com
This setup has proven to provide killer performance while remaining extremely reliable flight after flight. Along with the YS120 and Fun-Tech B302 pipe and Enya 5 plug on 15% fuel, the power is nothing short of ludicrous.
With roughly 25 flights in just 2 short days, this model has quickly come to be my most favorite model thus far.
