Default Other 450's

How many of you own a 450 other than a TREX? I have a TREX 450 SE V1. We've been through alot including 2 serious crashes and a bearing set and swash plate that were worn out from flying so much. I have killed 2 LiPos with it and am in the process of killing number 3 and 4. 5 is still running strong but 3 and 4 have that tell-tale lack of punch. Anyway, I digress. I still love the TREX and I still fly it, but I'm thinking of a new Heli. I want to stick with the 450 size because I want to be able to share batteries and main blades. I really like the looks of the Thunder Tiger Mini-Titan SE. It's all blinged up with the CNC'd head and carbon blades. I read a pretty favorable review and decided to order one. Any of you guys fly a 450 other than a TREX? Anyone have the Mini-Titan?

I have a MiniTitan and a Beam E4

I like them both, though the machine work on the Beam is very high quality.

i have the mini titan but its not the se version. they are good helicopters. my favorite heli right now is the Poseidon 480 cf pro. using 4-cell setup and it flys and looks awesome. it can be found here: www.mars480.com

its bigger than the trex 450 and is really stable.

Mikado debuted their new Logo 400 at IRCHA this year. Haven't flown it but it looked pretty good. Just another option. By the way, I'm completely satisfied with my 450SA upgraded to SE and if I was in the market for another 450 size I'm not sure what I'd get. Probably stick with Align because I've got so many spare parts but I really do like the Mini Titan. Probably would have went with that instead of the T-Rex if my LHS carried it and the parts.

I have one of these:

It is very high quality and is already blinged out with full metal head and tail. Mine has always felt smoother than my Align 450 SE. It can also use many of the parts for the Trex:

blades
boom
belt
gears
main shaft
bearings
landing gear

I'm flying the Dragonus NVII and the Dragonus Elite. Have now become my favorite, until I jump to the 500 class next spring.
Used to have a Shark 450 - Rex SE V2 clone.

Trex 450SE V1, HDX 450SE V3 and Belt CP (CF and CNC version). If I was thinking of getting another 450 it would definitely be the Beam E4. From what I've seen (never flown) it looks like the best 450 out right now.
