the x400 is a somewhat new. i think it's doing well considering it was released a couple months ago.
the ark is more than a couple of months old..it's been around for a while now.
and if you are going to Trex parts on the ark, you might as well just get a trex.
i have nothing against the ark, but if you just look at the forum posts and online shops, Trex stuff is everywhere, ark stuff is not very common. Every time you see a trex posts, there's lots of views and advice...The ark posts aren't as active.
so for a newbie, a trex is easier to get help, advice and parts for.
Pretty much any heli can be made to fly as well as any other...just depends on how much money and patience you have
