Default Does Size Matter?

Looking to see what people's thoughts are on the differences between the 450, 500 and 600 electric T-Rex's

Larger size = stability, but extra cost for initial setup, batteries, repair and maintenance.

I have three HK450 and one Align Trex Sport and love them. I just ordered an HK500GT because it's bigger . I will be able to tell you it it is really worth the money. It will be a bit noisier (neighbors) and I will need more space to fly, but I can't wait to fly a larger heli... Hopefully I won't crash on first flight.

Good luck on your first flight with the new 500.

450 is the smallest I'd want to fly regularly outside... obviously the bigger it is, the more indifferent it will be to the wind, and the smoother it will fly in general. I like to think of 450's as the 48" plane of the helicopter world... big enough that in a little wind, maybe 5-10 mph it won't be a bear to fly.

the larger the heli the more it can hold up to the wind.. but I still prefer flying the 450 heli as its faster easier to build in crashes and costs are less...

but there are some moves that really look great on larger helis.. and you can do more hard tricks on a larger one that seems to be really hard to do on a 450 heli..
