If you need to fly in your house, garage or smaller backyard, get the pro, otherwise get the trex.www.tleone.com

Cheap to fix for a beginner although harder than hell to fly for a beginner. I'm learning on the regular CP which is now upgraded past the PRO. It worked for me but now I'm ready for a more stable bird. I'm ordering my TREX this week. It's a challange but for the price.. how can you go wrong?"Human beings are viruses with shoes"

well, are you starting from scratch? or do you already have some electronics?

If you are starting from sratch, $600 might be cutting it close for a trex.

If you are just starting out,IE never flown a heli, I would seriously consider a Blade of some sort, just because they are cheaper to fix.

If you are a total beginner, i would get the Blade CP pro with training gear and a simulator.

With a $600 budget, you should even have cash for spares\upgrades

BTW, your PC meets G3's system requirements right?

I would order the Blade CP Pro, the crash kit with flat bottom blades, training gear and the eflite gyro. Remove the symmetrical blades and install the flat bottom blades.

I believe someone makes a cable to use the Blade CP radio with one of the free and less expense Sims.

i have both a t-rex 450xl and the original blade CP and also a raptor 50. the blade cp will not give you the beginner the feel of flying a heli in my opinion. the tail kicks out, the collective in the head is junk. maybe they got this corected on the pro version. if i were you i would at least get the heading hold gyro option they have for the pro. my best advice would be to save some more money and go for the t-rex. when equipped and setup right this little heli flys as good as the raptor.

i really really like the trex but i dont want an SE and that seems like all they sell on here is SEs. if anyone on here has one RTF minus TX, RX and servos i would buy it. it would have to have a battery or 2 and a charger though and no one really wants to sell a package like that. i dont know, im still pondering on it though

So you already have the TX, RX, and servos for a T-REX?

iwanttofly:

I have a Blade Pro, had a Blade, I also have a TREX XL and SE.

The TREX is a much more sophisticated Heli, and flies great. However, I learned on the Blade (still am), and it WILL teach you to fly. Since the Gyro is crap, you learn to fly the tail.

The other thing is the Blade is MUCH more durable and a lot cheaper to fix. I learn new things on my Blade, and when I'm comfortable, I try them on my Rex.

For a simple, durable, fun heli, the Blade is hard to beat.

I would start there. When you are good, save some more dough, and then when you upgrade to a TREX, you will really appreciate it and be able to handle it no problem.

Cheers!

sounds like that is what i might do, or i can get the Pro and G3 sim and fly airplanes and helis to, and wreck them and not have to pay for parts, i will probably get the Pro and the G3 though.

If you get the T-REX and radio, that will surely eat your $600 budget. How will you get money for spares?

If money is no object, I would get a $3000 Avant .90 setup. That thing is 100X more stable than a Blade CP so it's easier to learn on...Have a crash, no problem...I have a few hundred to repair this one crash...

The Blade CP on the other hand, will teach you at least two things.
Patience...you will need alot of it to learn to fly it.

Economic concsiousness....the more you crash, the more you will need spares so it will get you thinking "can I afford to maintain this hobby?".

At least with the blade cp you won't spend so much.

But definitely, get a sim. It will save you lots of money in the long run whether you decide to get a Blade or T-REX.

I hope you get what I'm trying to say

As some have sated above the T-Rex is much more stable in all manners, when set up that way. You will most likely need some help with setup on the T-Rex however, especially if you want it to fly well. The Blade CP and CP Pro are both great helis for what they are. They will fly well right out of the box. They will not ever fly great however. They are not as stable as the Rex when set up right but are much more affordable in initial cost, and much easier to fix. They are very inexpensive, quick, and easy to fix as well. The way they are designed makes them a breeze to work on. I would say that the symmetrical blades would actually be a better choice than the flat bottom blades that someone above suggested. The symmetrical blades will cause your heli to have to spool up to a faster speed to hover enabling your tail to work better in keeping the heli stable. You will have a little quicker cyclic response that way but I think that the better tail authority would be a bigger benefit to you as the tail is the Akilies heal for the Blade CP's."Respect my Authoritiah!"
