IMHO. In terms of how the size feels, The 500 is more like a 30 size nitro than a 450.

The 500 is more stable in flight, it's faster, it will "hang" in the air longer so you'll have more of a reaction time and it does fly more like a bigger heli. The 450 can be very twitchy but the 500 is a whole different class. It's like going from a Blade CP to the 450. There's a huge different, maybe not as dramatic. Your 3D moves will be much better on a 500. In my opinion, the 500 is my favorite every day heli. my 600N is my favorite weekend heli.

Thanks for the input..
I like to fly the 450 in the backyard...but it does lack stability compared my 50 (600N) and 90's(stratus)...I would love something thats just in-between so I can still fly it around the house.

The neighbors are not very excited about a the nitro birds running around the cul-de-sac, and they tend to bring the children out of the house FAST which I do not like.
