The Synergy 696 is one beauty of a heli! Smooth hassle free build, fit and finish of the kit was pure pleasure!
Flys great at high head speeds and low as well. Flown mine on 7s 5000's 12s 5000's and 14s 4400's. At head speeds ranging from
1000 RPM to 1900 RPM. Never missed a beat! Versatile machine for any flying style! You will not be disappointed!
Great job once again Matt!

Synergy 696 Electric Helicopter Kit
Beautiful heli to build.. parts quality & fitment 2nd to none.. plenty of options for various styles and components.. motor pinion options for desired head speed, configurable dual damper system in each blade grip, tail drive ratio gear options to match setup choice. New head, swash plate, & transmission design. 12mm main shaft, 10mm head spindle, beefy main gear... tons of setup options to meet any style... smooth slow head speed big air to ballistic down’n’dirty smack. Nice build with the best manual I’ve ever seen for any model. Flys like a dream. GREAT BIRD!

Synergy 696 Electric Helicopter Kit
Smoothest Heli I have ever flown, the ESC fan made the most noise. Stability was incredible, and I haven't even touched my initial settings. In addition I let Andrew Jesky from AJ Aircraft, fly my 696 this past weekend, and he loved it. Said it was the best heli Matt has put out so far.

Wow not sure about the first review, Not enough good things to say about this Heli. Like mentioned lightning fast build with great a well thought out manual, everything one can expect when building any Synergy Brand Heli. You won’t go wrong with this brand as well as the customer support network. Great Job Matt and Team.

Synergy 696 Electric Helicopter Kit
Maiden my 696 yesterday. Just solid as a rock. Very impressed with the machining of the aluminium parts. I just have to say however that this kit is definitely over priced. There is literally nothing to it. Not sorry I bought it, it fly's amazing. just feel there are other much better values out there and just trying to be honest.

Synergy 696 Electric Helicopter Kit
I’ve flown and built a ton of 700 class helicopters and I can’t think of another machine I like as much as the 696. The build is so straight forward and well engineered. You have rotating mechanics in 30 minutes, and it just makes sense. The tail transmission is one of the sweetest treats during the build. Gorgeous machining and design and makes a perfectly spaced backlash without trouble. You will seriously love building this machine, but there are two other huge benefits. First one is the light and locked feel of the Heli. I am not having to dial any interaction out of it, not even at the extreme end of cyclic and pitch travels. That’s a real surprise given how much travel there is to work with. I run a CGY760R on it and it needed absolutely no weird corrections. Perfectly mechanical zero’d and just go! I love how solid this thing handles aileron maneuvers, this is one of the places you can usually detect interaction problems with a set of mechanics, but they just aren’t here. The final joy of this machine is in repairs. Yeah, you better be crashing. I recently had to swap both complete frame sides and had my Heli repaired and back flying in 1 hour. That’s pretty cool considering how much gear is usually anchored to the side frames of any Heli. If you want a superb flight, awesome mechanics, and really straight forward maintenance, you want a 696.

Synergy 696 Electric Helicopter Kit
Wow! The Synergy kits just keep getting better and better, seems like it might assemble itself if you just shake the box hard enough.

Flies solid like on rails... Synergy never disappoints!

Awesome!!!

Synergy 696 Electric Helicopter Kit
The Synergy 696 is the first 700 class heli I have owned but not my first Synergy heli. Like all Synergy helis the build went smoothly with zero issues and no need for upgrades and parts revisions. So far I have 25 uneventful flights and looking forward to more. Thanks Matt for bringing quality helis to the market.

Synergy 696 Electric Helicopter Kit
I'm a true Nitro enthusiast and I don't normally fly Electrics much but I must say the Synergy 696 has me flying and enjoying flying a 700 size bird more and more each day. The helicopter is robust light and agile to say the least, the bird went together like a dream and when flown the true locked in feeling of a amazing design and well engineered RC Helicopter emerged. Job well done Mr. and Mrs. Botos. If your looking for a awesome experience from a 700 size Helicopter look no further the 696 truly delivers and won't disappoint. Remember folks we all have an OPINION I need not say what that can lead to....

Synergy 696 Electric Helicopter Kit
I'm in love with this heli. Cyclic response is unreal. Light weight, behaves really well, and looks and sounds amazing in the air. If you like autorotations, this baby's got serious hang time! The tail transmission is a work of art, and so quiet! The main assembly is beefed up and center of gravity is tight. I cant say enough good things about Synergy. Customer support is out of this world, and their models keep getting better and better! No regrets here. This kit is beast.
