It's the drawback of having packs inside the frame with plates. Convenient and protect packs, but it adds weight.
Tough choice on a heli design.

I would imagine that would depend on equipment used also. I would also expect that number hasn't been altered to give a false indication of getting something super light like a lot of companies do. I have yet to put a Heli together that has weighed what they say it will. So far the forza has been the closest one and we don't put anything on them extra. No backup packs or anything

the Forza 550 is stopped:

http://www.jrpropo.co.jp/english/new...ts.php?no=3531

very bad news, but I think the market is very difficult.... than I can understand, to not release a model to the market and reduce the effort to have spare parts available for a long time...

The good thing is, I talked to a dealer, he has good connection to JR, the support of spare parts for models on the market is secured.... if you have a Forza 700 or 450.

Well the design is already complete so they could always release it when the market is ready for it. I think the 550 market isn't very popular anyway. I think they made the right decision considering how much they were going to sell it for....

I really like the 550-600 size. Big enough to still see at distance, lighter than a 700, agile, can share packs with my 700s, 635, 690 etc. There is talk that Protos is going to build a new 550 so I think there is still a market for them. The Synergy E5 and Logo 550 are awesome Helis.

As is the Gaui X5! and crash costs are significantly lower than for a 700 size.
