Looking for Small electric
Hello all,

I have been away for about a year. I have a raptor 50 but I am looking for a small electric to fly around close to home. I want something that is easy to reapir, has good upgrades and not too expensive(asking a lot, arent I:rolleyes. Dont know if I should look at the trex, or the eskys, or something else. I do not need super 3D, just basic inverted flight stuff with good control. I have a 9303, so a radio included with the heli is not necessary. Please give any sugestions.

John

Smaller electrics are great for catching a few flights when you don't have time for the field.

Have you ever seen or flown one? I have a Trex 450SE, so that is my bias, but it is hard to go wrong with the 450 series. Align has multiple price levels and many interchangeable upgrade parts, so you can buy in cheap and upgrade later if you wish.

I would also base the decision on local parts support. What do your local stores keep in stock?

BTW I fly with a 9303 as well, great radio, I really enjoy it.

Good luck with your heli hunt

Yep A T-rex 450 is a good bet, I fly mine at the local park just about every other day .

Yes, I have seen a few fly. I was a regular at a flying field. I have some minor good flying skills. I was hovering inverted a foot off of the ground. I was learning funnels and some other tricks. So I am familiar with flying. It is just that I have been out of the hobbie for a year, and didn't know if something else came out in the small scale.Live Like You Were Dieing.

I was away from flying for 6 months or so, but I think the Trex is as popular as ever. It should be a good match for your skills (meaning it can handle that type of flying).

You might want to consider a esky hb king 2. I fly it more than my trex b/c it's smaller so I can fly in my backyard. Batteries are cheaper and it's very easy to fix. It's supprisingly cheap (price) for what you get. I have more fun flying my king 2 b/c if I crash really hard, I can just buy another airframe for like 60 bucks.

I don't/can't fly 3d so I can't comment on how the king 2 handles outside of hovering and ff. I think it's just as stable as a trex for what I do.

Do a search on the king 2 and I'm sure you will be able to find out what this little thing is able to do.

I fly my MX450 which is the same size as a Trex in a 30'X20' area in my back yard. I mostly practice nose-in hovering and slow forward flight transitioning to a hover from various angles. If I want to do more then I go to the park or the heli field.

Thanks for all of the replies. I just ordered the Honeybee King 2 last night. I saw some pretty good video of it. And u are right. For the price how can u not buy one just to try it out. If I like it, i am sure I will upgrade it. Also I just didn't want to spend the money on all of the electronics for a the t-rex. But I know my future holds one for me.

I just wanted a simple RTF for some close to home flying.
