XLPower Specter 700 is an excellent offering, blending extreme high performance, low parts count, and great value! The Specter 700 features a high CG design, aided by mounting all electronics as high in the frame as possible. Additionally, the main rotor is located as low as possible to the tail boom further enhancing the CG design. 

The main rotor head features a CNC polymer and O-Ring based dampening system, which provides both great low headspeed characteristics, as well as incredibly crisp feeling in high headspeed flight. The main shaft is 15mm thick, offering improved crash resistance and strength over most other 700s in the market. Blade grip pitch arms feature two mounting holes (inner and outer), allowing pilots to tune their rotor heads for incredibly aggressive pitch and cyclic response, or more conventional and calmer reactions. 

Additionally the helicopter features titanium based turnbuckles, which provides incredibly precise length adjustments. 

The tail rotor is driven by a belt, providing pilots with simplicity of both design and low parts count. Often times belts are desired due to improved durability; in the event of a tail strike often times the belt will skip a few teeth, and keep on running without damage to the drive train. 

Battery mounting is a breeze thanks to the sliding rail system. Secured in the front by a single thumb-screw with O-Ring, batteries can be changed in a matter of seconds! There is a large area of space available for CG adjustment (front to back adjustments), or larger battery packs such as 5,500 mAh 12s, or even 5000mAh 14s power systems!

Overall, the Specter 700 weighs in between 11 and 12 pounds depending on electronic choices, making this heli one of the lightest on the market.

XLPower Specter 700 Electric Helicopter Kit
I bought this kit a few months ago. This is by far the best heli I have flown and feels very locked. Some of the key things I found different than the previous brands I have flown is that the main shaft is 15mm compared to 12mm. Also the tail boom is also a larger diameter. It is built strong and stiff, but when comparing weight, I found it to be about the same which is great considering how beefed up the heli is. I have a 490KV 4535 and works great, but would recommend a 520-550KV range to allow better gearing options. The battery tray is awesome and extremely friendly to use. the two main upgrades I would recommend is the fwd canopy magnets and the quick release battery tray. Both have made the experience much better.

XLPower Specter 700 Electric Helicopter Kit
AMAZING Helicopter. Not only does this helicopter fly incredibly well, but the fear of crashing due to spending absorbent amount of money on spare parts is completely gone. The Specter 700 delivers world class performance of a 700 size helicopter, at an economical 550 class price point for crash parts.

The Specter 700 is one of the lightest airframes in its class, and thus can deliver a stunning envelope of flying styles and set ups. Prefer something that is slightly heavier? Throw in 5500 or 5800mAh batteries and have longer flight times! Light disc loading? Run a standard set up, at 1800 rpm, and fly for over 6 minutes!

Stop questioning it. Hit that add to cart button now. Thank me later.

I can honestly say I prefer this kit over both my old Goblin 700C and even my diabolo. Really a game changer at the price point. Builds great, flys great, and has good vendor support. Can't go wrong. Only thing to watch out for is nut that screws into the battery tray as it can come loose in flight.
