I've been hovering my Trex and been thinking of tring my Evo50 this week. I have heard the bigger Heli's are easier to fly. The little Trex is quick to respond but I'm doing OK with it. Hover tail in,right and left side in. Have not done nose in or FF yet. Well not on purpose anyway. Windy days are interresting with the Trex. Hopeing the EVO will be a little slower. Anyone been there?

I did it the other way, did my first flying on the 50 then got a T-rex for convenience.

If ur confident in the starting and running a nitro (remembering the starting procedure is a lot different and "lethal" compared to the lil electric, plus they need much more room) then go for it. Your learning the basics will probably come quicker due to the more stable platform of the 50.

Good to keep at the T-rex tho - it's great for tuning the thumbs!

You will not have any touble with the Evo if you do the same things you can do with the Trex.
If this is your first nitro flights, I would suggest having someone experienced go over the Evo with you and perhaps check it out in flight as well.
You rarely get more than one chance when it is in the air.
Best wishes.

i started the same way the evo will be much easier to fly and wind will have way less effect on a fifty size bird i would take fulloads advice and have someone who is familiar with nitro birds to help you at first but the fifty will be alot easier for you to transition into ff.

IF you can control a trex, you can definitely fly ANY larger heli without issues.

Interestingly enought, the same can't be said if reversed.

Best of luck!

you should have no problems flying the evo 50 . I started with a trex450x then went to a hawk pro and now I have 2 evo 50's they are alot easier to handle than a trex.

Hi Dlflyer,

I had a blade CP a Heli-max MX400 and now an Evo. The Evo .50 is easier to fly. I've gotten used to it (I'm only a beginner: all orientation hovering, FF) and am comfortable flying it. I absolutely love it. Very "solid" in the air and personally makes learning more fun and rewarding. Well, I went by my dusty other helis, and pulled out my heli-max and went for a fly. Before I was done I crashed it! I had forgotten how squirrelly it is in comparison to the Evo .50. You'll by psyched to fly it although it's a bit intimidating at first going from a smaller electric- at least it was for me. But that's good as you respect it and its potential to hurt you or someone else.

Have fun with it.

Christian

The T-rex is fun to fly, but it cannot compare to flying the Evo. I started an Evo and then got a T-rex.
The T-rex is SO unstable compared to my Evo. Flying in wind is much easier. As the others said, if you can fly the rex, you can fly the Evo.

Walk on water long enough, eventually you will get your feet wet.

Thanks Boys the EVO is awsome. I got in up and down twice took it home in one piece. Did have some problems. Trail rotor was hooked up backwards. That did not get discovered untill it left the earth for the first time.(WOW) That was not cool but my Trex time saved the day. I had it checked by someone else too. In this case we both made a mistake,it happens. Also for some reason the blades were out of track. Everything I thought looked good and they are in balance I have to dig deeper. I set it up like my Trex and it was perfect on the first flight. All in all it was great!! Any ideas on the tracking problem I could use please pass on. I had another post for the tracking problem but was not getting any readers so I closed it.
