Why don't you get something like 450GT from HK, they are dirty cheap.
You can buy 2 for a bit more then 100$, have one for spares.
For another 80$ you can equip the bird, you can even go budget and get a flying 450 for under 100$ !
600 is way more expensive.
Anyway I took the way I recommended to you, one 450 is gonna be in the air next week, just waiting for the pinion and connectors
If you have space, 450 clones and parts would be the cheapest to go. The cheapest kit I ever bought was $17 shipped on ebay.
Just be careful with the bigger bird, we can't catch it by hand when it flies too close.
