I have a T-Rex 450 pro right now that I'm thinking about selling. The only problem is the heli I want is the Synergy E5. I do have a 600 nitro that I'm almost done building I just need a V-Bar (that I would take off the 450 pro) so I wouldn't be without a heli. I'm not really a fan of the 450 size machine I just don't know if I want to go without an electric at the moment. Should I sell it and just fly the nitro until the E5 comes out or should I keep it and continue to fly it?

I don't want to argue N vs E I plan to always have both.

How much will you get from selling it Vs how much would it cost to replace it?

I have to this day, never sold a helicopter that I was not glad I did, to get something I wanted more, but also sad that it was no longer in the fleet to fly! If you must sell it, so be it. If you don’t need to, might be a good one the keep around to use for small field / park flying and new maneuver training!

When you feel tired, and just wont somethin to grab and go with out the door for a quick fix, then the 450 fits the bill. Small easy to get in out quick. I miss mine.

Sell it & fly the nitro until you get the E5. I'm a Synergy fan and love their stuff. You mentioned you're just about finished building the nitro; well fine tuning it and having some fun will tide you over. The E5 should be released "soon" as it was put.

I like my Trex450, I had a blade 450 until it slammed into the ground 1 too many times. I have a case for the 450 and it's much easier to take for a quick fly

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day

If I want something to fly quick I grab the 130x. I don't have anywhere close to fly the 450; I have to go to a field to fly it.

Not sure what charging equipment you already have. When I sold off my 450 and moved to the 550, I also upgraded my charging equipment and never looked back at the 450 class.
