Blade 130x or Align Trex 450 Pro

Hey, I am wondering what heli to get. A (used) blade 130x or a (used) Trex 450 Pro? I am 13 years old so I am on a tight budget. I am leaning to the 130x because of initial cost, repair cost, and durability. I also know that there are problems wig it, but I have seen many mods for them to make the problems to away. I want a small heli because I want to be able to fly in my yard or a gym.

I'd go with the 130X since its smaller (better suited to indoors and all yards) and is cheaper to maintain.

I would go for a 130X but you must be very careful in buying a used one. You should be especially wary of those that are advertised at knockdown prices.

Go with the 130X for all the reasons you stated in your post. I suggest you save up and buy new. A used 130X with problems could cost same as buying new in the end. I have seen them as low as $225 online.
