T-Rex model confusion
I am trying to research what model of trex I may want but I am lost with all of the different model numbers. X, XL, SE, SA, etc. I can't seem to find any chart or other comprehensive descriptions of which is newest, which has what features and so on. Please help.

I found this..

450X is the basic original.

450XL is a bit bigger with a longer boom which means you can run bigger blades.

450XL HDE is the mechanical mixing version. Supposed to be easier to set up for a beginner.

450XL CDE is the CCPM version (similar servo/swashplate arrangement to the BladeCP and HoneyBeeCP where the servo links directly to the swash and mixing is done electronically at the transmitter). Harder to set up than the HDE, but the direct connection between the servos and swashplate theoretically means less slop and quicker reaction. Apparently you need to be an experienced flyer to tell the difference between the HDE and CDE.

450XL CDE SE is the same as the above but with all the blingy bits already supplied. Doesn't fly any better but looks prettier when you crash it.

600 The DADDY! It is BIG and only recommended for those with immensely deep pockets. The li poly batteries alone are $200 each! Can't wait to see the Align Aluminium Carry Case for this baby! It will have wheels at one end and a tow hitch at the other! One day.......

The 450 SE does fly a bit better than the plastic models due to the rigidity of several key parts that may or may not possibly induce flex during heavy manouvering

and some lipos on the trex 600 are up to $369 now.. and rising.. but every precious second of flight time is worth it on that heli

They all fly well!
If you want it easy and low cost go with the HDE its very stable and low cost and you dont need a fancy radio.
If you have a few bucks go with the SE top of the heap and yes I believe it handles a tiny bit better.
But truly they all fly very well!

just two cents worth

Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm still new to all this heli stuff).

You forgot to mention the SA. The SA is similar in mechanics to the XL CDE (has CCPM) although, parts of it are aluminum, ex. the frame. Also it is ARF. Here's a link:

The SA looks sexy all RTF in it's box on the shelf at the LHS.
I Was thinking about buying one, but I'd want to leave it in the box cause it looks so damn good in there!

Align has recycled the 450X name from the original 450X into a new version which is essentially a 450XL with the shorter tail boom of the 450X-V2 and flybar control arms of the 450X-V2. The New 450X is also a CCPM heli. The original wasn't (but many hacked it up and made it so).

The NEW 450X has most of the 450XL head components and is shorter than the 450XL by 20 mm. Other than the name, the NEW 450X shares little in common with the 450X of two years ago.

Heliproz has a combo deal with the 450x with everything needed to fly for $529. So what 450x is it, old or new?

Would be the new one. I seriously doubt that anyone who wanted to keep their reputation would still try to sell you an original 450X from two years ago.

I've got the new x model and that apprasial seems accurate. It also has the newer type plastic which I've heard is tougher and is partially pre-assembled.

Mine went together fairly easily and does seem to fly well. Rolls are really easy with it.

The best deal is the SA version if you don't have the money for the SE.

OK that means all the parts online saying it fits XL would fits SE? The dimension on every parts are exactly the same except the meterial? Because many of sellers only indicates XL on their items but no SE.
