Default Which Trex for me?

Hi guys,

I am looking into buying a elec. helicopter. I have been seeing/hearing lots about these Trex copters and was wondering if you guys could help a beginner out? I am looking at the EFlite Blade CP, Hummingbird V3 and the Trex (however, i don't which one is like the others i have mentioned). Also, if Trex has a website, can someone post it? Thanks.

Dustin:

If you're totally new to Heli's, go for the Blade CP to start. It's relatively inexpensive, Very easy and inexpensive to repair(and you will!!), and an excellent learning machine.

When you can hover well & do simple maneuvering, including tail-out hover, AND feel CONFIDENT with your flying, go for the New Trex 450 SE. Can't be beat!!! (EASIER to fly than the Blade when you have built up good flying time) Considerably more difficult & expensive to repair.

Check out the Align web site & Trex tuning. Also read the threads on this site.

Yeah Dustin these guys are right... The Eflite Blade CP from Horizon Hobby is the best way to go if you are a beginner. I learned off of that lil chopper and i had a blast. The parts are very easy to come by also. If you do decide to get it... the upgradable world is out there too and allows you to deck out your little BCP.

Let us know whats up.... We are here for help...
