Nice comparison info available at trex tuning and at x400 tuning sites.

You might want to call support and ask about the MX400. Nice folks but not familiar with product. If you plan on buying very soon look at the sites that sell parts and you may find most parts are not avail. at this time.

Do a search as the X400 and MX400 are identical and many comparisons have been made of the X400 and TRex. Make sure coparisons are of the Trex XL, the latest (moderately priced) TRex and not the original or V2.

regards, chuck

I have an MX400 now, previously had a BCP. They're both great heli's. The MX400 is distributed in the US by HeliMax and is the assembled version of the Ark X400. AFAIK, they are both the same heli, just that one is an ARF, the other is a kit. Some people have had problems with the kit versions missing a few minor parts. Since mine was already assembled, I didn't have that problem. Since my LHS was already a HeliMax distributor, it was easy for them to stock the MX400 and associated spare parts. Haven't seen any Ark parts locally. A few people have noted problems with the extra parts supplied in Ark combo packages (motors, esc, gyros, etc.). I dodged that problem by picking my own parts.

Brent.

T-rex is Best overall and most proven.

MX400 is good.

id actually see what parts are available to u locally, and which ones more cheaper replacement parts. I dont have a ark 400, but i think the general consesus is that trex > ark400. But this doesnt really matter if u cant get parts cheap locally and fast unless u like buying from online
