By the time the model was released it had 'grown' slightly with recommended main blades now identical to the EP 10 of 440 to 475mm.  The recommended power train had also changed slightly thus giving slightly difference setup and performance figures. Additionally, the quoted sizes of Length of 41" and Height of 16" made it a significantly larger machine than the EP10, also at 5 Lbs (2.3 Kg) it was definitely no 'lightweight'.

Little Quickie 8 review  -  Review of the Pro version by Dave Keough in 2006 from Fly RC Magazine.

Despite removal from the main web site it was to be available on the general price listing for many years and even as late as 2012 a full spares price listing was advertised.

 

Quick EP 475MM (2007)

EP 475MM Package deal advert.

By 2007 electric models were generally being classified by general electric motor definitions i.e. 400 / 450 etc or by their recommended blade size i.e. 550 / 600 etc.  To follow this same convention, Quick renamed their small electric model the Quickie 8 to EP 475MM.

Whilst the machine was the same the power train had been updated and now a 6S battery with revised motor and ESC was recommended.
