I currently have the following helis:
trex 450
trex 500
trex 600 nitro

I think I want to get another 450 and sell my 500. So my question is keep my trex 500, or sell it and get a rave 450 running 350mm blades?

My reasoning is as follows. When I fly at my heli club, I have my 600 nitro to fly, so I don't fly my 500 that often.

I also have a small field next to my house where I often fly my 450, and I don't really fly my 500 there too much, because of space limitations.

So overall I don't fly my 500 that often, also I am soon at the point where I need to buy some more 500 batteries, I have one brand new outrage 2500, one with 10 flights on it, and then 3 older flightpowers which are about done.

So I would rather have a heli, I can fly almost every day at the field next to me, with a little more stability that my current 450, and not quite as big as my 500, and for the weekends I will have my 600 nitro for the club.

Also overall a 450 is just cheaper on batteries than a 500, where each battery cost almost twice that of the 450.

Any advice would be great.

Hi Dan,

I agree with you're thoughts on getting a RAVE and letting go of the trex 500. The Rave just so cool, and it's a blast to fly anywhere. And what could be better than a field right next to your house.

I think I'm a little jealous, Ha, Ha.... Go for it!

Funny you guys should think that, I'm thinking of selling my 450 to get another 50 size, hoping for a Synergy N5.
By the way, and for the time being, my T-rex 500 is my favroite heli to fly.

It's cool to enjoy which ever heli you're flying, and I agree with steffgiguere's comment
I'm thinking of selling my 450
about him selling his trex 450.

But, I also agree with inkspot, I want a second Rave too.... Come on baby!

Hi inkspot,

Yes, yes, yes.... More batteries.... But a 2nd Rave is also a great choice because Rave #1 can cool down while I'm flying the second Rave!

I have a T500 and a Rave w/350 blades. By far, the Rave is more fun to fly.

I <3 my Rave.. best 450 Ive ever flown..
I'm down for 4S batts right now though. kinda wish i had kept my 3S setup just until I had everything I needed.

2x Rave is what I'm shooting for as well..
Gonna purge my Fleet of Align 450s and buy another Airframe.

Try a Rave.. you wont regret it.

i flew my rave and i have to tell you man. the rave freaking ROCKS!!!

its far more beter then a 450 trex, and i enjoy flying as hard as my nitros and as high and low as my nitro, i could never auto a 450 but for some reason i can auto the liveing S*&! out of my rave, maybe because i threw the rave up to about 300 to 400 feet

my rave and my vibe 90 are like twins just completely diff. size. i am shoting for a 2nd rave also
