Default trex 450 XL - please help

Hi,

I am a new hobby helicopter user. Please help me understand..

Generally, has anyone calculated or guessed what is the MAXIMUM flight radius, or MAXIMUM flight altitude for the high-end models.

Generally, the transmitter/radio is 40-72MHZ and I am told that range is equivalent to 200-1000feet.

Is there any truth is this?

Generally, Im somewhat cautious about flying straight up/any direction until the helipcoter can not be seen.

Has ANYONE experience flying out of range at all?

Thanks so much.

No, they will go a lot father then 1000 feet.

In most cases the range is farther then you can see it but if you can't see it you can't fly it, so why would anyone want to push it to the limit (you wouldn't be able to see it anyway).

I have flown gliders more than a mile away. As said in general if you can see it you can fly it. Helis get very small very fast so you'll keep quite close to you most of the time. Flying out of range is not really an issue with todays radios.
