Big helis fly great but those expensive batteries aere big draw backs. The biggesr I have seen fly is a 600 sized electric/ and also a nitro 600. I could care less about nitro and added problems with that. the 600 e was nice but battery looks like a brick. Have to say 600 flew very well.

That alone is worth it. I agree whole heartedly that once you move on to 500 or bigger it is time to be building your own.
After being flying FP helis for one year, I jumped into CP helis with a Walkera Master CP and a little later a V450D03 two years ago.
With these helis I really learned to fly and I'm now able to do mild 3 D (loopings, barrel rolls, flying inverted).
I have no big complaints about the Walkera quality, and that's after 350 flights with Master CP and 450 flights with V450D03.
But remember, only mild 3D.
Just had to change the tail servo wich failed after a little more than 100 flights on the 450, and put metal gearing servos in the Master CP, that's about all. On the V450 I replace the swash servos after 150 flights.
Meanwhile, I jumped to bigger (and better) helis, with an ALIGN T-Rex500 DFC PRO and a 550 DFC PRO (550 is the biggest size wich needs only one battery, I don't feel the need to go bigger and more expensive).
Yes they feel more "locked in" and less sluggish when flying them, but I still have lots of fun flying with the V450D03, and it's my prefered heli when it comes to learn new moves (crashes are way less expensive).
And don't forget : a bigger and better heli makes not a better flyer of you !

Have nice flights, and smooth landing, wathever you're flying with !
