t-rex 450 V3 (Pro) or 500

Hi all,

Need your inputs...does the t-rex 500 fly more like the 600 or the 450? The reason why I asked is I own 600 and flew 450 for about 1 year but sold it. If money is not an issue, which should be my next heli, the t-rex 450 pro (v3...hopefully arrive this summer) or the 500

The 500 flies much more like a 600 than the 450. I'd recommend the 500 over the 450 in a heartbeat. I've had one for a year and I still love it.

they're wayyy different animals

i'd go with 450s, cheaper parts is a real plus

and it's convienent to take around

3Ds great, more fun

i went from a 450 to a 500, now i'm going back to a 450 again

The 500 does fly like a bigger bird.

We don't know what the 450 v3 will fly like... might be exactly like any other T-Rex 450, might be completely different, it remains to be seen.

If you want a smaller heli, why not a Mini-Titan? Of the ones I've seen and/or flown, that's the one that behaves most like the bigger machines.
