Default 2nd Heli Options?

I've been flying around my old Blade CP for a couple years now and want to upgrade to another larger 2nd heli. Don't want to spend a small fortune since all I do is some basic flying, nothing aerobatic or extreme. Just something without a tail motor, larger, more stable. I've been looking at the Blade 400 but would like to get some other opinions from you guys on what a good 2nd heli would be.

Thanks!

For the price the blade 400 is a good deal. If it's in your budget and you can't go any higher then it's a good choice. If you can afford more something like a thunder tiger minititan is better and you can pick your own electronics. A lower priced popular option is the esky belt cp, just remember to replace the esc.

I'd say go with the mini-titan. Much better heli for not much more money. They're more stable and fly better than the Blade 400 too. If you do opt for the Blade 400, make sure you replace all the servos. They are a known weak spot. All the magazine reviews will confirm that.
