Quick 50 (2002)

Whilst having a 60 size model and a 30 size model; the reintroduction of the OS 50 Engine had spawned a 'new' helicopter size and these '50' size models had proved to be capable of the best of both worlds i.e. the stability and presence of a 60 with reduced size and operating cost nearer a 30.

The basic design was also updated with a driven tail allowing greater control during autorotation given that, for competition work, full four axis control was required to carry out the autorotation manoeuvres.   

Available in two version;

Pro - Carbon frames, boom supports and aluminium blade grips, anti-rotation guide and trays.

Sport - Black G-10 frames, composite blade grips, anti-rotation guide and boom supports with composite/brass insert trays.

Quick 50 V2 (2007)

 

By 2007 the Quick 50 was out of date compared to the 50 size models then available; the model was therefore given a revamp in order to use the more powerful 50 size motors plus the general upgrades available for the whole Quick range.
