Its been almost two years since I've sold everything connected with the Raptor 30V2. The Sim included! To be honest I've missed the hobby.

Before selling I was still at the hovering stage, reasonably stable, but still just hovering.

I'm really thinking about getting back in.
I keep thinking that electric is the way I want to go, and have been reading all I can. What I need from you all, is some Pros and Cons for electric birds and lets use the T-Rex XL or SE.
How about start up cost? Repair Cost? and certainly ease of beginner learning curve,

Stick with nitro.

Electrics still seem to be more pricey to build/fix and more difficult to fly.

Now, this is being said by a beginner who is flying a nitro, but that's the impression I get from reading similar posts here.

I'm sure others will chime in.

I'd recommend getting a 50 size nitro. (you'll get all sorts of opinions on which one).

I too got out of flying (15 years), about the same as you. Bought a FP POS, No Sir didn't like it! Bought a Trex, with a little practice was hovering again. BOY! it felt great to be back in the air. Then I wanted something bigger...So I bought an EVO50 and I'll never get out of this money pit again!
You shouldn't have any problem flying a Trex. I'd go for XL, the price difference use that for extra batts!

One more thing...One good thing about a Trex. It can be flown indoor and outdoors. Durning the summer I'd fly mine under the street light.
