Depends on perspective and intent of where you want to fly.

If I could own one, I would say a 550 sized electric. But if I had my drothers; unlimited indoor gym access and a great 450.

I consider the 550 as the perfect size. I have a 500 but it’s a bit too small to be my favorite.

IMO, 90 size fly the best... But for a beginner the 500 is a good size

I think the 500 is the perfect size. Lipos are cheaper and crash costs are considerably lower. Bigger than a 450 which makes it easier to see and perfect choice for trying new moves on. My favorite heli of them all.

Got to have my cup of heli in the morning.

You can fly a 450 in your yard and at smaller parks. This makes it my favorite size heli! I can fly it way more often However, I just ordered the Outrage Fusion 50 for some serious flying. In the end, it just depends were you plan on flying the most. Go big if you if can get to the field alot.

I personally think the 500 is the best of both worlds. Bigger in size, but still affordable. I love my 450 pro, but sometimes wish it was a tad bigger.

IMHO the 550 is the perfect size machine

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Well if you can own 2 helis my choice will be :

450 PRO (small aera/crash cost) + 550e (flight quality/visibility)

or

450 PRO + Fusion 50 (just drawback is 2 batteries needed)

But if you can just have one i said

500 ESP

700's are big and expensive.. I love mine.. but my 8s 500, 6s 450 will give any 700 a run for their money at 3D.. autoing (new word)is a different story..
