You need a good thorp/MIP screwdriver for the 250. It will run you $20 something after shipping. That was my main problem with the heli.

I have not flown the guai 200 yet, but the 250 is the best micro heli I have flown so far. However, the 450 is much more stable. Specially for a beginner.

Also, setup and adjustment will be a bit more difficult. You really gotta know your setup with the little 250, but once you get it set up correctly it flies great! Just like a little 450 but a bit more squirrely! Plenty of power on stock blades/motor/esc with upgraded 16T pinion.

In my case, I'd swap. Only because I could fly it in the front yard, it's a new heli, the new 450 is coming, and the lipos and crash parts on the 250 are as cheap as it comes.

I've always liked small heli's the most though so that's just me. 450's and 200's are my style.

In truth the 450 is "worth" more... but worth is really relative, do you want a 250? Are you done with your 450? These are questions you have to ask... Right now I am having a blast with my 250, to me; that makes it more valuable than the 450 that is hanging quietly on the wall looking very jealous, but the 450 has 200+ more bucks tied up in it? Does that make sense?

Keep your 450 it's not worth the swap.

Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?
