Out of all your helis, Show a pic of your Fav.

Thought this could be a cool thread. Been done before, only very few pictures. So out of all your helis past and present show a picture of your favorite heli and why...... Out of 7 I have owned ( some sold) Mine would be the Hk-500. Have put alot of work and upgrades in this heli and it just flys so smooth and trouble free. Its not to big not to small, seems to fit me and my flying style perfect ......Show your favorite heli.

Ironically, it's not the Trex 600 and the 450 is still to new. So, it's the Walkera v500D01.

It started out as a TRex 250, but there's not much left from those days. Now it's mostly a 250SE. Canopy by my wife Celeste.

It's now back to having a flybar, because I could never get the 3GX FBL controller to work correctly.

Well, I'm not sure if it's really a difference between the size of a 500 vs. 600 helicopter but the V500D01 is just eaiser for me to fly and manuver that the Trex600. The 600 is super responsive - I'd almost say twitchy. I've been playing with the expo and it's a fine line between twitchy and too dumbed down.

If I were an expert pilot, I'd probably be raving how agressive and crisp the Trex600 is and how suit it is for extreme 3D but as a newbie, I find the V500D01 more forgiving and user friendly.

I wonder if it's due to the transmitters (DX8 vs. 2801Pro) or maybe the flybarless systems (3GX vs. Walkera's flybarless unit). I've had about 10 flights on the Trex 600 and still don't feel quite comfortable with it.

My small armada includes the HK500GT "Sonic Turkey" and the HK450GT, the "Thunder Chicken".

They are both equally my favs.

You can enjoy them in flight here!
