I got to fly mine against a non-EVO with a 140N turbine just like mine. It's amazing the speed difference. He had an easy 20-25mph on me. Might have to put my 170 in mine:cool:

Kinda like an Ultra Flash rebirth! I only have 6 flights on my Evo, but not for a lack of like! I was flying so low and fast the last flight that birds on the ground were running for cover!

mine, at 22.5lbs, with a 170, I had to listen to my timer beep on and off the whole flight - it's set to start/stop at 1/4 throttle! But imo, it's awesome! Nothing quite like accelerated vertical!

Quality swing on the Odyssey is either OK, or pure junk. But it's an option. Flies pretty well. Got two at our club.
