Which electric to buy - Eco 8/16 or Kalt Whisper?

Post by Simon D » Sun, 02 Apr 2000 04:00:00



Can anyone compare the Eco8/16 to the Kalt Whisper electric heli's?

I don't know if I should consider the Kalt.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I would venture to say that the general consensus is that the Eco-8 is a
better machine. Lots of upgrade parts (some you really need) and flies
really well. I can't comment on parts availability and cost for the
Kalt, though, since I've never seen/flown a Kalt whisper. But I have a
bit of time on a Eco-8. Before the Eco came out, the Kalt was considered
the best in it's size.

The ECO 8/16 model is the newer version of the Whisper.  Ikarus was the primary
designer of the Whsiper about 10 years or so ago for Kalt.  The ECO is a result
of changes to the Whisper that Ikarus felt would mke it a better heli.  

All in all, the ECO is a better machine and much more upgradeable than the
Whisper.  Go with the ECO 8 and have a great time.  The ECO 16 is even better
since bigger really does fly better!  Good luck,

Though there are alot of heli fliers around here, no one flies an
electric but me- I've never seen an Eco. But I love my Whisper, it's
still going strong after 2 years. I hear the newer model is even
better. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another. But all I read in this
group and on the net is that the Eco is a great machine also. If you
do buy the Whisper, try some Concept EP blades on it, made a real nice
difference in mine.
