I think it is, but with a lot of parts exchanged with aluminum, even the frame is aluminum, looks like a will put machine.

I bought one on an impulse buy.

Things are not going so well for me so everything I own is for sale. []

I have both. The 450 has CCPM so it has a 120 degree swash and a more direct control linkage arrangement. Also the 450 has the longer tail boom and longer heavier main blades. I find that I get shorter flying time with the same battery on the 450 vs the 400. I find that at my flying skill level (low intermediate) I'm just as happy with my MX 400 Pro.

I got one also before there is a run on them, so I can make good use of the $50. merch. rebate. Later I'll get the stuff to get airworthy.

Yeah, same bacic parts. If you bought the 400 and then the CCPM conversion kit and longer tail conversion kit and more metal parts you would end up with about the same thing for more money. They just did all the upgrades for you!
