    Recommend me a new heli

    A little backround on me and flying helis. Id consider myself a beginner still. The only heli i have is a blade cx2. Im pretty good at flying it, which is why im here. Im looking for the next step in my helicopter flying but im not sure what to go with

    I love the 3d helis, but im sure thats way above my skill level. I been looking at the Blade 450 3d RTF kit, but im afraid of getting it and it being far to hard for me to fly.i have flown 3d helis in the flight sim at my local hobby shop and i can do basic flying pretty well with that, but im not sue how close that is to a real 3d heli.....

    Im looking for any recommendations on what some experienced people think my next step should be. I also want something that can fly outdoors, my cx2 cant handle the outdoors unless theres absolutely no wind, and thats something i dont like about it. Also, id like something thats RTF as i dont have a bindable reciever or anything on my own id need to use a BNF kit. Also looking to keep the price around $450 max

    Thank you in advance

    but since your here, id suggest a double horse 9116, or the 9104, these have much greater outdoor flying than the coaxle helis, i have probably gotten 50 plus flights in on mine and still like them

    Alight T-Rex 500.

    A bit more money than the Rex450, easier to fly and see, about the same parts costs when the crash repair bill comes in.

    Imo, stay away from the clones. Parts replacement is a pita, the kits themselves come with little or no instructions.
