I used to have a Mini-boy back in the 80's and didn't learn too well on it but had no help. Now I want something that I can fly (atleast) hover in my backyard and take to the local park. I'm familular with nitro but like the sound of eletrics and think the Trex 600 is awsome. I was thinking it might be a little pricey and was thinking of the 450 or 400 because of the available scale bodies for it but was wondering what it was compared size wise to my old Mini-boy. I don't want to go smaller if I have to but was atleast thinking of an Axe CP for the meantime while I save for the larger helos. Any help or adivce would be great. I know size means stability and thats what I'm looking for. No 3D, just scale flgiht.

Wow, I had a MiniBoy back in the day but never got it off the ground. Finally 18 years later, I gave it another try and never looked back. The MiniBoy is roughly the size of a Raptor 30 (550mm blades) but I think the Trex450 will serve your purpose yet not break your wallet. It was my first "real" heli and I still have it one year later. Great little heli and relatively inexpensive to maintain. Lipos are getting cheaper and cheaper. The main reason to get the Trex 450 is that you can fly it just about anywhere.
