Which would be a better heli and why?

I will buy one of these and am waiting for Century to update their website with the 3D's
info. So far they just have links to pics.

I am told the Shogun is a great heli and is somewhat larger.

I would also want the brushless versions with Li-Po's.

Just saw that http://www.helihobby.com is a distributor for the TREX 450X ....looks nice also.

For the size I like the HB I have the HB Elite CP w/brushless and lipoy's and it is great can wait to try the 3D pro.
The HB are quite small but if u have the room I here the shotgun is pretty awsome.

If U Don't Fly U Don't Try

First, Helihobby carrying parts should not be a reason to purchase a helicopter. If they are your only source, find a different heli. Seriously, too many horror stories, I've got my own with them too...

You should say what sort of flying you do, and what space you are expecting to fly it in. Every heli has it's strengths/weaknesses.

I agree that the hornet 2 is a pretty good heli, but I just built one of the trex 450x's and I think it will partially dominate the market , The Zoom is popular right now but with the tail gear problem it leaves alot of people frustrated , and the trex takes care of that with its belt driven tail. Im really impressed with it , and helihoby is comming out with lots of upgrades for it too ( alum parts ) and the Zoom swashplate fits it ( well almost the balls are .2 mm too small and we're working on it ). So all in all the trex is my heli of choice for now.

I have never flown the HB or Trex but i have a Shogun and love it. I have never had a problem with the tail gears. People just dont understand that its a micro which means its not going to be as sturdy as the bigger nitros. You cant plow it in the ground and expect not to strip some gears. Go brushless and you will climb faster than a R30. The Trex looks a little more forgiving but weighs more.

What's the big deal with the weigh on a T-Rex? I've seen them fly and they are every bit as fast/agile as any Zoom/shogun out there. It's all about the power system.

After building/flying a couple of Hornets, the Rex make them all feel like toys.
