I certainly don't have $2.5k spare to spend - those who's only financial consideration is sneaking it past the spouse aren't in quite the same marketplace.
With respect to the above having 2.5k and sneaking something past the Princess are NOT mutually exclusive terms.
I went the round a bout rout of starting with this hobby and starting with the WRONG machine when I should have done what many folk have adivsed, start
with a sim and a 450!
In my personal condtion written previously thats simply what worked in my
world, keeping in mind that ones own personal condtion is their own.
I enjoy having a machine (two) that is 90% the quality of a Trex and is a fraction of the price.
ps I LOVE my Dx6i (for now)
