I was thinking of buying a T-REX 600 Nitro this summer and was wondering if anyone can offer insight on what to get. The Pro or the regular. I think I saw a kit for $399.99 just for the 600 Nitro. The pro version is a lot more but can someone tell me the differences? Also for the price difference between the two, is it worth it to get the pro version?

I hate to see you crash, but I hate to miss you crash!

well really a few things are different, the pro has a fiberglass canopy and a torque tube, 600n sport has a plastic canopy and a tail belt drive, either is great I flew a 600n sport for a year, only upgraded I had was the metal grips for the head, either way is good, up to you buddy.

Hi
I fly the sport belt drive and i asked the same question recently follow the link below.

http://runryder.com/helicopter/t477815p1/

After a recent crash with a 45 degree angle on my tail boom, all i needed was a boom, link and a boom support, ordered the cheap and easy to find parts and was back flying within two days, if i had the parts to hand i could have been back in the air within an hour!

Enough said

That Kasama head still sounds tempting !!!!

It depeneds on how you fly. If you are doning extrme 3D then i would recommend the pro, if not then the sport would be the way to go. they both can handle 3D manuvers but the pro will hold up a little better then the sport in that application so it depends on you.

Carbon frames
Fiberglass canopy
Torque tube tail

Its hard to tell the difference in the tail drives unless you bump the tail blades, with a TT you're probably going to be replacing gears.

Those three things, Canopy, TT and carbon frames are worth the extra 100 bucks for sure. I guess there are concernes about taking out gears if you hit the tail. I really cant say, I have not done this. I prefer the TT for the benifits it has over the belt.

TT is improvement for autos and you dont have to check/set the belt when the temp changes

I also think the canopy is FG is painted really nice (white is easier to see over the red but the red looks cooler perhaps.)

The Nitro Super Pro presents the best value by far IMHO....

Pro/sport

I've been flying one of each for the last year. I've stripped tail drive gears on the Pro in the air and I've stripped all the teeth off the plastic pulley on the sport twice, both times in the air. I've also stripped gears on the pro after a flame out resulted in an auto into knee deep grass.

Once flying, I can't tell the difference. Both fly very well.

Interesting the belt's teeth were stripped in flight. I wonder if adding gyro delay for softening the start & stop of the tail would have helped.

I purchased the Sport a few weeks ago . I also picked up an unpainted fiberglass canopy for about £13 at the same time .
I happen to like belt driven tails , so I didn't regard that as a downside . I'm thinking of using 2.4Ghz , and because of that I feel that G10 frames are a better choice than carbon fibre .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

Agree. I give the SuperPro two thumbs up. I, for one, favor the Torque Tube over the belt for reasons already mentioned. If you can afford the Pro... its the best bang for your buck. If not, the original kit is great too. I've had a bad crash a while back on my pro in which it split both my CF frames. I've replaced them with G-10s and been happy with them ever since because they provide a little flex and doesn't creat RF interferrence.... not that it ever was an issue but the flex characteristics makes it just as tough, IMO. They are also half the price. My point is.. the blings are nice, but its not absolutely necessary. Either way, you cant go wrong.

Just keep in mind there are THREE levels of 600's
The 600n Sport, 600n Pro, and 600n SuperPro.

I actualy took out two sets of gears on the belt drive, I now have a metal gear so it should be better. I'm sure delay would fix the problem, I just don't seem to get around to doing it. The same would be true for the pro. The day I stripped the gears on the pro, the wind was blowing WAY hard, I rolled out inverted from a knife edge fall, hit the rudder (which I had just increased) and stopped with the side of the heli going into the wind. It looked cool but it sure groaned when the piro stopped.

My Pro and Sport are both pretty much stock. I am using metal blade grips and a different (thicker) clutch liner. I don't generaly play the upgrade game.

The sport is fine for 3D. I flew mine with belt and plastic on the head for a long time. Just put on some nice blades and paddles and it will handle great.

Most people (myself included) could never "outfly" the sport model. It is capable of every manuver in the book.
