Quick Bat 50 (2008)

  

Next generation nitro machine the Bat 50  (initially called the Quick Bat Copter 50) was designed with 3D capability as a priority.  The redesign also included triple bearings for the main shaft so as to ensure minimal flexing of the drive train during 'hard' collective operation.  Available in the standard Sport G10 and Pro Carbon versions along with options of the CNC tail upgrade and the tail shaft drive system.

The reduction in price was $100 on the Sport version which was not a lot and although the machine could be brought up to normal Bat Sport or Pro specifications, it would be an expensive way of doing it as can be seen by reference to the Bat upgrades listing.
