The main issue with the trex 500 for me is that you use 6s lipos. For those to charge at decent pace you need a decent charger, and the equivalent battery for a 450 is double the price.Given that you want at least 4 lipos to have a bit of fly time, that means an added ~80 bucks. That's on top of the heli. If you go second hand, sure you can save money. Personally I dont have much interest in second hand helis, I'd rather build my own. At my local hobby shop, a trex 500 is ~800 bucks vs. the RTF blade 450 which is 500.
