Default T-Rex 450 XL... Good deal or not?

I am interested in picking up a T-Rex 450 XL from someone. I am still a begginer and have a CP2 currently. I need a good heli that I can fly outside. I live within walking distance of many parks and fields.

I am interested in buying a T-rex to use in spring after i get good enough on my little honeybee Cp2.

Here is the package for the Trex I am considering:

. FUTABA T6EXHP COMPUTERIZED PCM 1024 TRANSMITTER RADIO W/RECHARGEABLE BATTERY PACK.

2.HITEC ELECTRON 6 RECEIVER

3. ALIGN 400L 2500KV BRUSHLESS MOTOR WITH HEATSINK

4.ALIGN 35 AMP SPEED CONTROL ESC.

5.ALIGN HEADING HOLD GYRO

6.ALL HEAD SERVOS- HITEC HS56HB

7 TAIL SERVO - HITEC HS50 HIGH SPEED

8.ALUMINIUM ROTOR HEAD AND BUTTON

9.ALUMINIUM MAIN BLADE GRIPS

It is already pre-built and ready to fly.

All this for around $450

I guess it is almost brand new.

Should I get this or wait and get a SE? I'm not too sure on all the differences anyways.

Thanks for any input!

This is a very good deal. Is this new or used?

If your moving up from a CP2, there is absolutely no reason to get the SE. It's just a XL blinged out with metal parts. The stock XL is a great heli and will last you a while with all stock parts. It looks like there are already some metal parts with it so your doing better than stock already.

if all the parts are in good condition you may have to fend others off trying to get a deal that good. The only weak points are the motor and the gyro. the heli should still fly fine using the ones included, they can be upgraded at a later date if you want more performance.
