Before I new about RR, before I met guys at a field and before I had any knowledge of heli flying other than 3ch I purchased an Exceed Eagle 50 from Xheli(esentially a 200 size heli). Even bought the training gear.
Grand total about $115 RTF. I won't mention anything about the $20's I wasted on the sim they offer and I bought that never did work cause I have windows 7.
Well after a few tries an crashes I found RR and the members here pointed me in the right direction.
My learning curve took off and after becoming a member my crashes can be counted on one hand. Not that it will stay that way.
So it took this heli out in the driveway yesterday and low and behold I can hower it. When I first tried this heli I thought the was no freaking way this thing was flyable. It took alot of Sim time and quite a few flights on the 450 I have but now I can hover this little thing. It might not be a complete waste of money after all. Course it did lead me here and to now flying a 450, but there it until yesterday.
I now will shelf it till I order from xheli again. It has a bent main shaft that I didn't notice till I flew it.(again I didn't now about main shafts and slight crashes till RR)
This little cheap heli will get me through the windy days and the winter as I can practice in the basement.

Words to anyone thinking of getting into helis a 450 size heli is the minimum size heli you want to start with. AND A SIMULATOR IS A MUST!

These words are spoken from a newbie.

Enjoy the hobbie, respect the heli and always keep learning.

Oh well, I flew the T-rex 500 third time in my life today and had a SUPER MINOR crash... I was hovering and it was drifting so I hit TH and it bumped a bit too hard and the bottom plate gave way and that was all! I was like COOL! This man just told me to go crazy with epoxy and keep flying Time to get the epoxy out.
