I just got rid of a FBL 450 Pro but I'm already missing it. I think I'm going to try out the new Blad 130x when it comes out - it's slightly bigger than the mCPx but has tons of power for doing mild 3D (which is all I'm capable of right now).
I just got a Trex 450 pro. The 130x looks nice too, i'm looking forward to seeing what it is capable of
I like helicopters because they are easy to haul, can fly them almost anywhere(no runway needed), and when you wreck, you buy new parts and you basically have a brand new helicopter.
With airplanes you buy what you need to get it going and there is no need to spend anymore money until you need a new air frame, but you need a big truck or trailer to haul them, require alittle more space, and you have to put them together at the field
So I like them both and fly them both for now, until someone tells me otherwise
