Trex 250 #3


Since both previous 250 threads have been closed by the original starters for various reasons, I am starting the 3rd thread for the TREX 250 which I hope will be mainly about the TREX 250. Of course, other helis will be discussed and compared which is normal on most threads. To try and stop it is pointless. All I ask is that the majority of discussion is about the TREX 250 as more information is forthcoming. I plan on buying one when it comes out( as long as its under 250$! lol. So please feel free to post photos and info as it happens. If you want to get in a heated discussion about other helis, please start or post in another thread. I dont plan on closing this thread just because I dont like the discussion taking place. Dave

I've never seen so much trolling and criticism over a heli that most have not seen, let alone fly one.

After seeing one in action earlier this month in Taiwan, I can certainly understand why there are so much oppositions. This little heli is going to blow away any current offerings in just about every aspect: performance, parts quality, and certainly price. With Align backing it, this heli is certainly not going to be orphaned few years from now.

Competition is good for us consumers...

Thanks for starting up a new thread. Hope the trolls will stay off and I'll bring in more info about the new heli as they become available.

So is there a release date set? Are there any pictures or specs? I like pictures. I saw some CAD graphics in another post, but those are lame.

Looks like they have finalized the design. Estimated release date mid October. So we will see them in the states probably around November time frame.

Here are some CAD drawings of the final design.

Yeh? Steph280 you should read the sjm180(215) discussion. Thank goodness that this is a pc powered forum and not done face to face, the police and an ambulance may have needed to have been called on more than one occasion! lol. Looking forward to reading about this trex 250 in the comming weeks.

Smaller than a King 2. The blades, for example, are around 200mm vs. King's 275mm.


I hope they keep the original black frame / yellow canopy. I kinda like that more than blue coloring.

I'm hoping Horizon Hobbies carries/distributes this one. My LHS won't order through anyone but them and Great Planes, for the most part.

Well I am here now too, funny how all the new micros(SJM,Trex) are attracting all the trolls though. I put some troll repellent on before this post so we should be all set

I own a Trex 450 and never really looked into the smaller ones until word of the 250. I'm having a hard time waiting for one and am debating on weather or not to go with a copter x 200 or wait.

Without making this a thread about the Copter X, what design advantages from the information released about the 250, does the Trex have over the copeter x?

Thank you!
