Default TREX 450SE & 450SE V2 on sale? is it worth?

Hi guys,
Not sure if anyone notices it? RC-expert.com & RCMachine.net they are the same, however they put some nice RTF kit, 100% pre-assembled on sale this 20008 Thanksgiving. The Trex 450SE (probably v1) with Futuba TX & Esky RX = $459.99 free shipping
Trex 450SE V2 with Futuba TX & Esky RX = $519.99 free shipping
Trex 450SE V2 with 24Ghz TX & RX (not the Futuba but a-OK TX/RX) + bunch of bonus ittem = $699.99 free shipping




I need some advice (I'm beginner and mastered-ready co-axial but noob on 6ch RC Heli) whether which RTF kit I should go with? Thanks guys

Take a look at the $199.00 T-Rex SA model. You have to do some building but it is more forginbe in the fact it has alloy frames that can flex where as the v2's have corbon fier that break when the "going gets rough." (For me a beginer anyway.) The SA model is what I chose even tho I have the bux to spend for the V2. the vee two will be my "step up" model.

I personally went with the SE v2 and would do it again. The metal parts like blade grips etc. don't break. The feathering shaft is stronger and doesn't bend as often. Plus the blue bling is cool

You will hear some say plastic is better because you'd rather have them break instead of something else, but from my own personal experience, the metal simply doesn't break and my usual parts to replace are the main shaft, feathering shaft (not all the time), and blades which would be the same whether plastic or metal.

But, the SA is a very nice heli and there is nothing wrong with it! So if money is an issue, get it and you'll be happy.
