Well, I'm starting to have sencod thoughts about my Trex250.
I'm starting to think that may be the micro thing is not for me. I only get 1 and a half flights out of it between crashes

Intelligence chases me, but I'm a lot faster! Fernando

Agreed, many times over.

each heli i have built, owned, and flown, has all had their ups and downs. the Blade CP had no up's, and no shortage of downs. glad i got rid of it.

as for the favorite, it would be my Predator 90, followed close by the Raven 50, then the Trex 450. I have a Bell 222, but with 30 size mechanics, its a bear to fly.

The Caliber flew nice, but mine had quality issues. The stock muffler fell apart on the second flight. The one way bearing locked up after maybe 5 flights, then the grommet where the clunk line goes into the tank kept popping out.

Out of all the helicopters I have owned up till now, these are my top 3:

1. Align Trex 600N
2. Raptor 90 SE
3. Raptor 50V2

I have also owned a Century Hawksport 30. I hated it so much. Never got it to fly right. Poor design and parts quality.

1 trex 700
2 synergy e9 yes E9
3 trex 600

my worst heli is the jr vibe 50 had to maintain that heli more than all the others put together and it was so expensive to rebuild after a crash.

I know I used lock tight why did my head explode

Top three favourites
1> XeroG 600EP
2> EMax Raptor 90 electric custom frame job
3> And yes this was one of my favourite helis for character > The Kyosho Concept 30 with rear cone-start and mechanical gyro!

Hated > TRex 450's, Trex 250's, Gaui 200's and some clone 400 job.

Yes smaller helis are harder to fly but they're also bad to build and go wrong for no reason!

In order:

1 - MinAir Spectra-G
2 - Raptor 50 V2
3 - T-Rex 450SE V2

Didn't hate any of my helis, not even the fixed pitch Walkera Dragonfly 4. Actually, I had a blast with that little heli. I even still fly it just to make sure the electronics are still OK, and end up having some real fun. Good for rainy days.

top three

1 Logo 500 V-bar. Easily the best flying heli l`ve had.

2 Raptor 50. Only because l had one of the first 30s and still have a 50 so l must like them.

3 Mini Titan. You can fly this thing like you stole it and then fix it for a tenner. Never could do that when l a Fury.

Bottom three

1 Swift. Biggest heap of junk l have ever come across.

2 Zoom. Won this one in a raffle. The box of chocs would have flown better.

3 Hirobo Eagle. Beautiful heli but the slightest foward motion in an auto and it was boom strike, spares cost an arm and a leg.

Top 2 and 3 were chosen because of the amount of fun per $ rather than the actual quality of the kit.

Flybars. Who needs `em.
