I've had both and the Titan is a year behind the Trex.

The Trex SE V2 is a fantastic little heli that flys like much bigger model, the Titan IMO, flys like all the other little micros,

My mini titan flies incredibly well - almost as well as my 50 sized helis. It is stable, smooth, and very fast. There is little performance difference between a well setup Mini Titan with the metal headblock and arms and a well setup Trex SE v2. Either way you will get a good heli.

The MT flies better but the trex SE has lots of nice metal bling.

A SE version of the MT with a metal head would be the best.

Blimey, you guys much have a different mini titan than the one I had, mine was a ThunderTiger one - the ball links were stiff, the head not accurate and the servo mounts very weak, felt like a really cheap heli to fly, the V2 Trex feels solid and works perfectly out of the box.

I have both, and prefer the TREX SE.

Trex has greater durability, and feels 'more' locked in.

It's very strange that most of you guys are comparing the Mini-titan which is a standard heli, with a TREX 450 SE V2. Sorry, that's a comparison that you shouldn't make i think.

How many versions and improvements have there been on the 450 TREX model ?? 7 or 8 maybe. You can't compare apples with pears.

I have had almost all versions of the TREX but not the SE versions, and now i've have purchased the Mini-T and i must say this little heli flies SUPER right out of the box, without any modifications. The only known problem i had was with the tracking problem.

But to me, Thunder Tiger hit the bull's eye with this little heli.

just my 2 cts.

Most of the heli forum voted Mini Titan against TREX.Thus resulted as it was my first 450 heli.

Of course no heli is prefect.But it does serve my purpose.The love for Mini Titan is so strong that I even email to TT if there is a SE version soon.Their reply was it will be launch within this year.Great new for TT fan.Than it will be a fair comparison again the TREX SE.

I agree with DFlyer if you compare the MT to the "non-blinged" Trex it is a far superior heli.

However the SE is better than the stock MT IMO - you simply can't beat a metal head - more durable, and everything is very precise after 100's of flights.

My MT flew awesome for the first 50 flights. However, the head is plastic and things began to wear. I am now having to replace the center hub because it started to rock on the main shaft. But no big deal - $6 bucks later and I will be back to good tracking and rock solid flying. I find the MT head design gives it a more locked in feel than the SE.

I own both and think they both fly great - the SE is really agile and the MT flies smoother. If you can afford it get them both - otherwise I would get the SE.

As an aside, even though the MT may be a bit heavier than the SE the motor/pinion combo and headspeed will still be the largest determining factor in the amount of current you draw. For example, my SE has a 500TH/14T at 3000RPM - I get 4-4.5 minute flights. The MT has a 450TH/15TH at 2800RPM - it gets 5-5.5 minutes.

The MT should be compared to the T-Rex S or SA to keep it apples to apples, of course the T-Rex 450SE is a better heli, it has all the upgrades!

I loved every one of the flights my trex gave me. I was able to get a couple of hundred flights before anything got loose enough to replace. I got a MT because I liked the design and layout of the motor and servos. I'm glad I bought it on a whim because I have since parked the trex and bought a fully metal upgraded MT. This is so nice! One of them has the stock motor and the plastic one has a align 450XL. You have to get the V2 SE for about $500.00 to have the thrust brg head with the 4mm spindle. The cheapest MT has got to be the best money spent by me in a while. Both are a lot of fun. TimT

I've owned both. The T-rex SE (V1, not V2), which cost me around 500 bucks, and the Mini-titan, which cost me around 200 bucks.

The T-rex SE had a lot of nice bling. Too bad it flew like a bumblebee on steroids, even with a lot of upgraded parts. I crashed it too many times to count because I couldn't control it (I have flown a Raptor Titan for a year before this, so I'm not a newbie). Crash cost came to be about as much as what I paid for the SE, so I ended paying 1000 bucks for it (plus the expensive servos). I sold it to end my suffering.

The Mini-titan, right out of the box, flew very similar to its big brother, the Raptor Titan. It was very easy to control, and didn't have any weird tendencies to jump around. The assembly was very easy, and most of all it's cheap. I could bling it up with metal parts from Kasama, and it will still cost much less than an SE.

So, from my experience, the MT wins hands down, even when compared to the SE. Cheaper, flies better, more enjoyable. Of course, the SE does have nice looking bling, but I buy these things to fly, not look at. YMMV.

Mini titan it is!

I am a sport flyer, and from the information sent, I feel the mini titan out of the box and price$$$, will serve my flying needs just fine.

Thanks for all the info.

Rick.
