Holy crap, $2100 for a micro? My X-Spec doesn't even cost that much.

You have been taken. Just an fyi.

DO NOT waste your time on a flight stabilizer either. Take that money you waste on it and buy a Blade CX or a sim. You'll battle with it more than it's worth.

Just so ya know, I bought my first Raptor 50 with all digitals, JR g500t gyro, cf blades and Jr 8103 radio for.... drum roll.. $750! (thanks, eBay!) I haven't had $1300 in crashes in a year in and a half of flying it either (started out with it as basically the first heli)..

That plus the 40 some gallons of fuel STILL makes my buy a deal.. Quick! Cancel that buy. Save the money for that sex account!!!!

$2100 is a bit much for Trex. you could probably get one of these... (HELI)

and maybe one of these (Tx)

and have enough left over for everything else your gonna need to fly with.

Damn couldn't you almost buy 3 TRex's for 2100??? How many batteries are you buying? Hopefully more than one! How about a charger for your lipos? Kinda funny how you are gonna spend 2100 on bling...but then machine your own boom supports that only cost like ~$12...

I agree a sim rather than the co-pilot.

Remember when flying inverted that down is up and up is EXPENSIVE!

I was supprised by how much mine cost, about £750. Dunno what that is in US money. I then proceeded to crash it because the receiver stopped listening. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Bugger.

Micros are hard to learn on. I have a completely blinged out Hornet X3D that still doesn't work as expected. I got carried away since I already had an evo 50 and a Freya 90 so I thought it can't be that difficult... yeah right...

If you can afford it, by all means get it but a 30 or 50 sized nitro would be better for learning.

A Trex seems to be a better bird than the Hornet though. At least in terms of stability.

my two cents
