T-Rex 450, or MX450?

Which one would be a better buy, the Align T-Rex 450, or the HeliMax MX450?

Trex just because of the parts availability makes it worth it. Everyone has one and you will get way more support with it. Not saying the mx450 is a bad heli but you will kick your self in the @#$ later if you get the mx450. Just my 2 cents..

I know Align has better service, but the reason I am asking is becuase the MX450 is about $250, and the T-Rex 450SE is about $450, allthough I dont have to have the one with all the bling, I could just get a T-Rex 450SA

From these 2 I'd choose t rex for sure. I had mx 450 in the past and I wasn't too happy with it. It has some flaws (e.g. tail) and the second issue is parts.

P.S. You can buy rc tek SkyShark/Diablo ($ 300 with full size alu case) I switched to it from mx 450 and I like it a lot.

Yes, I have seen those, I may endup getting this heli, http://heliwarehouse.com/proddetail....=PHNX450SEBLUE which I am told is identical to the RC Tek heli, its the same price too.

There are design differences, but yes - we supply HW with their TREX style heli.

I would wait just a few more days and get an RCT-450. Actually making little suggestions to the wife here and there about buying one.
