wile the buy in cost seems higher for a 500 or even a real align kit it really isnt that much

the 500E is only 30 bucks more then a a 450 Pro and a real align 450 is only about 100 bucks more then a clone once you put decent stuff in the clone and fix every thing

i started on a 500ESP 3G the only upgrades it has are orange tail fins and i JUST upgraded the head dampers 2 years later because the stock ones that have been in it since i built it wore out

crash costs of a 500 are only slightly more then a 450 and thats only do to blade costs and imo if you use a sim your going to crash the 500 less then 450 any way since you can fly it higher and still see it and the just flys better all around
in the end i think your crash costs will be less with a 500

you can get a 500E kit here
for $425 shipped after discount (he gives 5% off in the cart) add a used DX6i for 100 bucks and some lipos say 150 for 3
30 bucks for a used RX and maybe 100 for a charger
$805 all up and isnt really bad in the long run remove any thing you may have already like a charger
if is to much even a clone 450 ill be to much for you as your going to have replace parts every crash and you will crash it a lot
