I really think T-600 is a very well design heli. There might be a couple of parts that can be stronger, so does most heli have couple of parts that can be improve, but everything else is very well design and solid. I believe T-600 gets a bad reputation is because it's such a affordable heli, that a lot of beginners flying it and abusing it and don't know enough abut maintenance and gets all the crashes. Also, it's meant for 3d and the stress from 3d maneuvers can make any heli fall apart if one don't stay ahead of the maintenance.

I use to fly the 450 doing flips, loops, inverts and when I get a crash, I quickly fix it and doing all the tricks again without throughly testing it. So, I get quite a few failures and always blame the heli, probably mention a few of them on the forum. Now, I have a brand new 450, tune it perfectly with least possible vibration. I have been flying it for 8 months and about 150 to 200 5 minute flights and I can't find any part that I need to replace yet. The 450 is solid. The 600 can only be better.

As far as I know, MJ2 and Logo are usually not the first heli people get, so people who own them already have experience of maintaining them. Also they are mostly use for sport and AP, therefore must help out on the track record. I believe, t-600 is not far away from logo in term of reliability for AP, maybe couple of upgrade parts will make it a ultimate AP heli.

T-600 APer--let us know how many dedicated t-600 ap-ship have a failure due to it's parts??

Only thing that really cuts into time is if it gets flagged for customs. They let packages sit for extended periods of time regardless of size/destination,etc... just completely random. I have a relative working for customs inspection and she said it's a crapshoot for shipping/receive inter Can/US borders.

I've had my rex600 for about 5 months and fly it almost everyday. Just sport flying. All stock. I like it because it's an inexpensive heli and it flies just fine for what I do with it.

There are obviously differences between a $1,000 RTF heli and a $4,000 RTF heli.

Personally, I feel that the end result (what the client sees on paper/net/video) is what matters and not what is flying in the air.

If a Rex600 setup properly can obtain the footage you need to make the client satisfied and wanting more, then there is really no reason to invest in anything else unless you are looking for something specific that will change your goal/outcome on the client side.

General business practice.
