CURRENTLY I HAVE A TREX 450SEV1 AND SPECTRUM DX7. I WANT SOMTHING A LITTLE BIT MORE SUBSTANTIAL THAN THE TREX450. BUT NOT AS BIG AS THE TREX600. I'VE HEARD RUMOR THAT ALIGN IS LAUNCHING A TREX500.?. BUT WHEN? WHAT COPTERS THAT ARE OUT THERE WOULD BEST FIT INTO THIS "500 SIZED" ELECTRIC CATEGORY AND WHICH IS BEST.
RAPTOR E550/HURRICANE 550/ETC...ETC...

I think it is hard to beat the New Hurricane 550, it had a few problems at first but Gaui has made some revisions and I have had no problems with mine for the last 2 months so far. Stock it is a bit under powered, but it still flies like a stock raptor 50. now their are some real good motor choices for it. Stock it is no 3D monster but it will have no problems doing funnels tic-tocs, flips rolls etc!! on 2 evo 2500 packs I get 6+ minutes of hard flying, it also does well on 2 evo 2170 packs. you can stretch flight times to 8 minutes of just flying around. their are probalby better 3d monsters but their but when you factor in the cost difference when going from a trex 450, not sure if their is a better next heli> with the hurricane you can use cheaper batteries and a cheap charger, I still use my Poly 4 which does 4 pack at a time. Plus all my packs can be used in my Trex 450, even though I have only flown my Trex 2x since I got the Hurricane. If you want a 3D monster their are now also upgrades which handle all you want! including carbon frame.

I have now sold my 50 sized Nitro's and only fly the Hurricane.

Well, you can also look at the Lepton, Logo 500 3DX, and HDX 500. I'm going to hang on until the Align 500 comes out. The Hurricane is certainly interesting though.
