Default WHY I LOVE MY NX4

How about we start a thread on why we love our NX4, I know there're people that want to only bash and find issues but how about we look at the glass half full for a change.
I know I could find fault with just about anything BUT this little Heli is just Bad Ass.
I think the build was great and the DESIGNER really put a lot of thought and effort in all the little things that make the NX4 a great build and a great flying machine.
I want to thank Gaui and Bobby Watts for having the balls to be the first to come up with something new and innovative. Congrats!!!!!!

I love NX4 because it is very fuel efficient without sacrificing any power loss.

The main reason I bought one is because Bobby Watts designed it, I have been flying MA and I love the simple designs low parts count, direct servo to swash and all the same elements are incorporated on the NX4. This is also going to be the perfect nitro for flying at my house. I have a trex 500 that I fly when I dont have time to go to the field but I really think this will take its place I am a nitro guy at heart. I'm not worried about the few issues that have came up since the launch. I have yet to see a new design not have a few issues at launch and parts are always scarce at first since all these companies release new helis before the parts supply is in place, not saying it is right just the way it is.

I will totally chime in. Excellent build, one of the fastest and well put together kits. Fit of parts dead on. Love the low parts count. Nice carbon, very clean cuts. Clean aluminum parts and love the red accent washers.

The canopy is beautiful and looks great in the air. Love it. Nice and light. Nice and glossy.

I like how it s designed around a new specific power plant and muffler, great amount of power at a fraction of the fuel use. It moves and grooves and is very fast in forward flight. Easy to tune.., Long live Nitro!!!

Direct to swash, good space upfront for electronics, and a smooth gear system. The tail servo is not stuck on the boom but nicely tucked away under the canopy. Very nice fuel tank mount, first for me, and will say best out of all the heli I have had. Simple to put in, easy to take out.

As I said before, this is the 30 size we always wanted back in the day. Clean build, beautiful, powerful! I was in love at first sight... Still am.

Loving mine more and more every day - almost through a second gallon.

Today I was flying and turned my head for a second...Oh crap! Too low!!
I actually hit the ground and some how was able to pull up out of it. No damage!! just a little bit of grass stuck between the canopy and canopy clip. The skids did move out of place a bit.

Not sure that the other machines I own would make it through that - I have to also give some credit here to the MSH Brain for keeping the machine locked in during that maneuver.
