    i doubt gas turbines like jet cat or wren are bad for maintenance. they had 1 piece rotors when my mate was playing with them and were only single stage. when you need to create a drive other than thrust/pressure then i guess it will get a bit more complicated but bearings would be the main consumable at a guess?? and fuel, they love fuel, the 90 minute flight time is i think remarkable, it must have a huge fuel load and a very effcient/frugal motor. i doubt it has much excess power when fully loaded, and the control set up looked like a NASA cast off or early PC flight sim set up.

    LOL i thought that myself until i realised just how big it was. you'd be hunched over like a ninja turtle with a lead shell.

    Hmm...
    My experience of co-axials is they are not good in wind!

    Maybe this one is powerful enough to overcome the inherent limitations of the design, but I am not sure I would want one!!

    It must cost at least $25,000 USD. Hotskink626, Way too big for a backpack. Better stick with your Phantom.
