Trex 550 FBL or wait for the new 600E??


Hey Guys and Gals. Some of you may know I have been waiting for the new align Trex 600E that is being tested as we speak. However my downfall is I'm tired of waiting and want a new toy.

This is my question.??

Ok if you had $900.00 Dollars sitting at your LHS waiting on the new 600E and everytime you walk into the LHS you see the Trex 550E FBL or FB version sitting there ready to come home with you, would you still wait for the new 600E to finally hit the USA shoreline? Or just grab the 550 and start having some fun now??????lol

Give honest opinions please..

Thanks K1

There is alot of factors, but to some it up probably based on the wait time;
If you dont already own a 550 or 600 (working)
1-2 months from now I would wait
4-6+ get the 550 and convert it to a 600.

Ahh new products and what they promise, so few deliver but then just once in a while something like the 550FBL come out

What would upset me is if the new 600 pushed the price of a 550 down AND was king of kings - That would be a double wammy

Can someone tell me the difference between the 600e and the 600e v2? Maybe a link? I ask because I just got a 600e back in November of last year. It has the updated motor (I think) because it has the 6mm shaft.

It looks like one of the big differences would be the battery setup, I don't know if its 12s but it sure looks higher then 6s

A man with too many toys
There is a lot of chatter as to whether the new helicopter will be a 600, 620, or 650. One thing for sure itís going to be fairly expensive and look like a scaled down 700 and not like the 600ESP.

Align in only going to sell a complete kit which is bad news for us that just want to upgrade and move all out equipment to a new helicopter. That attitude as started me looking at other brands.
