I want to buy a Trex but I can decide what to get.

I am a beginer on helis I have Raptor 50, I only fly FF at the moment but will start to learn aerobatics and 3D.

I want to get the T-Rex so I can practice and start doing 3D with out having to go to the RC field.

I know that the SE version it is the top of the line, but I wonder if the LX V3 will perform well or do I need to get some upgrades.

Does the Align gyro works well or it is better to get a G-401?

Thank you for your advice.

I had the same dillema as you. I went regular, and will just upgrade the parts as I break them or find that I need them. The more you read on here or any other forum, the more you will realize the basic T-rex will 3d. It is all about the bling bling.

You meant XL or SE?
Both can do same 3D manuvers effectively. If you like blings and can afford SE, then go for it but the XL wins the best bang for the bucks in stock form.

it was a typo I mean XL version.

I think I will get the XL to start with and a swash plate upgrade. I just do not want to come apart on fligth as I hear.

Does the align gyro works well? or just go with the 401?

I would go with the 401. Might as well just do it. Where are you getting it from? Wes at Modefo's has some great combos.

Glue the swashplate yourself and you don't have to worry about that thing coming apart. I had 200+ flights on my glued stock swashplate and it's still running.
