450 or 500?

Hello everyone!
After about two years I decided to return to this hobby My question is... Should I start again with a 450 or a 500 heli? I had an CopterX 450 Pro before and got up to a level where I started doing figure 8's. I flew my friend's 6ch heli recently, so I at least know that my reflexes aren't gone ;D I was thinking about buying either an rtf T-rex 450 Plus DFC or an T-rex 500 with the Futaba 10CP transmitter. Which one should I get? I'm more on the 500 side since it's more stable and more visable in the sky.

Can you afford to purchase and crash the 500? If so then that is your horse.

Most parts that breake alot (feathering shaft, main shaft, blades) are actually cheaper for 500's than 450's in my local shop

hehgood point. wonder if that'll "fly". anyways, back on topic. 450's are fun, but if 500 parts are cheaper, then why not..?
