Mini Titan E325 or T-Rex 450???
I've just started getting into this hobby. I have a sim coming on its way (should be here next week), and I have a Raptor 30v2.

I want an electric heli that I can fly more often than the nitro Raptor.

I am currently contemplating between the Mini Titan E325 and the T-Rex 450. I don't care for 3d as of yet, since I am not even considering that. Which one wouls suit my needs better? Thanks

This is just my opinion but I don't think you will get a definitive answer for this question. Both the T-rex SA and E325 would work for flying sport/scale. You would be better off looking at what your LHS stocks parts for and local pilots are using in case you need help setting it up. Good luck with your decision.Depleting the world of parts, one crash at a time!!

I have 3 LHS nearby and they all stock parts for both of these Helis. I just want a small electri heli to be able to fly in small fiels/areas, basically places a nitro can't.

My nitro will be for the local flying field.

Thanks.

Well that's always good. I know the rex's are more popular around here. I have a rex myself but a buddy of mine has the E325 and loves it so I think you will be alright with either.

Right now I'm leaning more towards the E325. I talked to a few owners at the LHS, and they said that for a beginner, the E325 is easier to handle.

It all depends on how it is set up to fly.
one good thing about the se is that the metal parts rarely break in a crash.

I was actually looking between the Mini Titan E325 and the T-Rex 450XL, not the se. Thanks for the info on the SE though.

The Trex 450s V2 is mostly all metal and inexpensive to buy. I can tell you from experience that the Trex is solid. I planted the Rex into the side of a building last week and all it did was bend the main rotor shaft. 10.00 later and twenty min. and the rex was flying again...Im a total beginner too.{Neighbors were pissed though}LOL...Good luck with your endeaver.

I've been flying a T-Rex SA for a couple weeks now and I'm having a ball with it! Today, I flew it in the most wind todate (fairly gustly) and it handled it very well.

Locally, most of the guys that fly mini's are flying a version of the T-Rex. On the nitro side, most are flying Raptors and Hawks.
Align and Thunder Tiger pretty much have their act together so you'll probably be happy with either machine. I've been a lot of help, haven't I?

I will say that in MY OPINION, the T-Rex beats the Mini Titan hands down in canopy shape/style!

Good luck with your decision and happy flying!

Lol, yeah you have been alot of help. Actually it's been great getting feedback from both sides. I currently own a Raptor 30 on the nitro side, and am about to purchase the mini titan. There is definately more upgrades available for the TRex, but I like the things I have heard and read about the e325. Thanks.
