Hi all
Didn't know exactly where to start,so i just jumped in right here. I know this subject has been covered many times,but before buying my next heli,i thought i would seek some advice from you guys.Iv'e been flying co-axel helis for a little while now and want to move up.I'm thinking about the honey bee king2,also thinking about the the align trex.When i look at the diffrent trex models available i get confused.Can someone tell me about the diffrent models offered? thanks,Blade blaster,the blade destroying newbee...

trex 450s is kit heli with alum and plastic frame, plastic head/tail.
trex 450sa is prebuilt heli alum and plastic frame, plastic head/tail.
trex 450se is kit heli with alum head/tail carbon frame.
trex 450se v2 is the latest kit design with alum head/tail carbon frame.

mini titan is a good choice 450 size heli with plastic head/tail/frame.
mini titan SE is new kit with plastic frame and alum head/tail.

honey bee king will be the cheapest out of all of the above but you might outgrow it fast. if you decide to get a trex or mini titan, you will also need a radio, 3 cyclic servos, 1 tail servo, gyro, 3S lipo, lipo charger/balancer. most heli kits come with motor and speed control.

Whatever you get, you will be destroying more than just blades soon, so stick with something that has local parts support if you can. Most hobby shops carry Trex parts, so that is a safe choice.
