the 450, I did not want spend over $200

The Tarot 450 is often cited as the best 450 clone. Tarot is thought to have some connection with Align, with some parts coming out of the same factory. Other high quality clones include ALZRC (Align 2 RC) and 3DPro. The best priced clone out there is the HobbyKing 450.

you mean the cheapest clone is the hk450... its parts are also the cheapest quality....

i dont understand why people buy clones only to replace everything eventually with align parts

Are you trying to sell it? It is not a good clone at all but looks like the ebay sellers just got a silly run on them.

After so many months of flying heli and realized that rc heli spelled out from money!!!! It was not thinking like that at all when I first started this hobby. All those new clone heli seems really reliable and cheap, you can tell the different when you are really getting into this hobby. Save up a little bit more and get a better version. It's true that people buying clone kit and use Align electronics, because electronic parts may last longer and the mechanical part will break after crash. This is one reason that I use clone, too.

yep the heli hobby is definately not an investment no matter what people tell you. The more you spend, the more you waste in the bin!

this is true, BUT i would rather pay for a quality heli and not have to worry about mechanical problems, then go cheap and crash more because of crappy parts

apples to oranges. It all depends on how you fly. There's a lot of pilots here who just loves basic flying with their helis and they have a very cheap setup and it last them for years. And they always tell me "Helicopters are meant for flying not ploughing" what ever that means. And I've seen pilots with 2k+ helis flying dangerously and irresponsibly, and their helis don't last that long.

apples to oranges.

I'd buy an original Trex just for show, I wouldn't fly it. I'd stick to clones for the bashing. It works out cheaper.

Oh and to answer the question to the OP

TAROT 450 Or ALZRC 450 same thing. But I highly recommend to buy an orignal Trex for show. They just look better on the bench.
