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

I think this will make my 3rd or 4th summer flying. I started on a Flyzone SkyFly 2, and moved to a Parkzone T-28. Moved through all sorts of airframes since then. I picked up my first glass of kool-aid last year at Joe Nall with a Velox. Own/owned a laundry list of 3DHS planes, and have sold some to a friend to obtain more. The kool-aid is alcohol free, but it's sure addicting!

Its hard to go back and fly a plane like the supercub after flying one of these powerful and agile planes.

Yeah its crappy, like if I start a rolling harrier from take off and touch my elevator on not even the first roll it will say phoenix has stop working, a problem has caused phoenix to stop working, then all I can do is click close program. Anybody else ever have this problem? If you try it try doing it to a paved spot not grass.
