Black Friday deals on EXI 450 or CopterX 450?
I'm looking to buy one of these as an upgrade to my HBK2. Does anyone know sites that have them cheap? I know xheli sometimes runs a special for a 69 dollar EXI-450.

Also any recomendations from those who have both or have flown both?

Both threads on them seem pretty good.

In the US, you have www.electronhobby.com for the CopterX. They have a "Name Your Price Sale" right now. You basically haggle over the phone. If you are outside the US, there's www.ehirobo.com. To save on shipping, order your spares along with the kit.

If you want a better heli, consider the CopterX Black Angel . There is a separate review in this section. Parts should come out before the end of this year. This however is not Align compatible. But it is my preferred heli.

I think ide get one of those Flash clones, they look like the best deals so far on T-rex clones. They seem to have every version of the T-rex clone also from the S to the SE

BowerR64, do I hear a Flasher coming to join your rapidly growing 450 fleet?

#5 viprvette Nov 27, 2008 09:26 PM

#6 Blade_Killer Nov 27, 2008 10:27 PM

oh yeah your right, it is "Flasher" i thought it was flash for some reason.

They sure look good i tell ya. That one for $65. dont look bad for the money if you ask me.

This is the one for $65. http://www.rcmodel4u.com/product.asp?id=625

$65 is quite unbelievable. That will get more guys into minis. And for $36 you can get an XMSeller G401B gyro that in my tests is Futaba GY401 class :D .

Are the black head bits plastic?

Wow - I didnít know about the flasher. Do you know if Trex 450 parts fit on it? The thing I like about the EXI or copterX is the compatibility with Trex.

I'll have to try that gyro out. I just got the Colco gy400 and it is pretty good so far. I hovered it in a windy day and it held. Its been cold so I have not done much other testing but for 21$ shipped it seems really nice.

As for the Mini titan, i havenít looked at it since Iím looking for something trex compatible. I just got into forward flight and my honey bee king 2 is kind of hard to see.

They want 50 bucks for postage on the flasher. Doesnt seem so great now.....

#11 scousethief Nov 28, 2008 03:48 AM

postage is always robbery 55 dollars from them 72 dollars from x-heli ,i posted an item back to hong kong that was heavier than the heli kit and it cost me 18 dollars ( equivalent prices im from the uk )

#12 eaterofdog Nov 28, 2008 04:01 AM

EXI 450 is $55 shipped with shipping code CJFREE2 from xheli.

Only posting this because I already got mine.

#13 viprvette Nov 28, 2008 11:05 AM

wow so many choice on xheli. I'm having a tough time deciding which one I want. I dont want to get stuck with a heli that I cant get parts for.

Does anyone know if the 450ZL has the same frmae as the e325 mini titan?

#14 eaterofdog Nov 28, 2008 11:56 AM

The $55 dollar EXI is 95% compatible with the SE V2. The other EXIs use oddball frames. xHeli does sell parts for some of them, but they have a bad rep for parts sales.

I just placed my first order with Xheli. Im going to give em a try and see what experience or service I get from them. I'll see. I ordered an Exi 450 and spent $55 and bought a gear puller also. Ive heard alot of negative about Xheli and Ive also heard alot of positive. I'll see.
Why did even order another 450 size heli , I'll never know cause I already own about six or seven of them .
