Getting a used #5 is going to be kinda hard because it's too new.
There is a guy here selling Lama's for $55 shipped... You can get great deals on the lamas right now..
see if he has any left
Blade CX is a messed up price for a CX.

2.4Ghz TX/RX binds without changes to a DX7. 4 AA's instead of 8 and very efficient. Short antennas out of the box. Tons of local hobby shop support for parts. Also great purchasable mods available. Mostly personal preference, but I think the CX2 is a great buy and looks better. IMO of course BTW, love the show Burke, you and JPC are doing a fine job, keep up the good work!
But you are going to have a difficult time finding a used #5 or #6 I would think. I just got one and like it very much.

Well, a 2.4Ghz RX/TX are .. not really needed for a CX. I just got rid of my 2.4Ghz .. didn't like it.. If you ever did get a twitch in a CX due to 72Mhz, it's not like it's going to cause some massive crash. I guess I'm just saying I've never had any glitches or issues with 72Mhz.. But it could happen I guess.
I wish they would have let you screw off the TNC antenna on the TX. I was going to mod that in, but then got rid of it.
Some people do like the Blade look over a V3, but if thats the case = V4.
I'd like to support the locals, but I wont be 'massively overcharged' for a CX or motor driven tail..
When I had the HBFP, I'd go to the local shop and get Blade CP parts for my FP. Most of it was the same except the head parts..

I have all of those helis that you originally mentioned...guess the real question is how much room do you have and how much experience and your pocket book...the lama is a good beginning heli..tough too..but needs more attention than the CX...the 5#5 and 5#6 are nice..but not outdoors at all...and I had to get smaller tools to make adjustments on them as well..
