Well after flying my cx-2 for a few weeks i bought a B400.

Im pretty good with it. Im scared to do Forward flight still because of the "unstable-like" flight of it. It could be me, but i think its half me half heli.

I crashed it once due to loss of site, and my LHS repaired it where i would be way in over my head.

The next crash i Repaired it and im feeling more comfortable doing more mechanical issues.

I want to move into a bigger better heli.

I dont think i really want to deal with nitro with a motor and everything. Plus having to buy all the parts and accessories i would need.

So what do you guys suggest? Im definitely keeping my B400 to continue practicing. Because the crashes are soo cheap!

MY LHS pretty much recommended along the lines of, anything thats bigger...

(I have the 500 in sights but i heard it had static problems)

I have the trex 500. It's a great heli. I lube the belt with silicon spray and no static problems. It's a very good balance of power and stability. Just finding blades and other parts is a pain right now. Anytime align comes out with something new it's hard to find anything to support the heli. I guess they are very popular. The hobby shop where I got mine said he should be getting some more today. They go off the shelf quickly.
