Hi,

I'm thinking of getting a T-rex 600 nitro for my first nitro heli. I have a 450 V2 which I am using to do slow forward flight. It this heli a good choice for a step up?

I am thinking of getting the 600 Nito Pro combo.

I am thinking of getting the following electronics

3 x Hitec 5625's for the cyclic
401 Gyro + 9254 combo

Does this sound like a good setup?

Is the 1900 mah lipo that comes with the 2-in-1 able to run the servos and reciever....and for how many flights?

Thanks!

Yes, it should be a very nice and reliable set up.

Yes, it will run it just fine. You should get in the neighborhood of 4-5 flights, maybe more if its just basic flight, but I wouldnt push it.

It will run fine. I'd think of getting a better gyro, but the 401, which I had on my 600Npro for 1 year was great, only now I move more I installed a solid G, with holds better.
You will like flying this heli.

The gyro will be great, I would get a larger Mah lipo, you won't get too many flights with that 1900. Look at a 2100 or larger.

I am on a bit of a budget, so I will stick with the included lipo for now.

I was comparing the cost of getting a 600 versus getting a Raptor 50 Titan and the T-rex is quite a a bit more expensive. Does it fly better than the raptor and is it worth the extra $$$ ?

I am a bit nervous about the cost of crashes because the boom and the frame on the T-rex are all carbon fiber. I was just wondering which parts usually break in a FF crash and how much u guys ususally spend having to fix your helis.

Thanks

you will pay a little more up front for the kit but when you look at crash cost, the number goes way down. I have put my 600s in the ground a few times and have yet to brake a mainframe. the parts come in sets of two or three depending on what you buy so the cost is dropped further. ex.. 1 rappy mainshaft=12.00, 1 pack of 600 main shafts 12.00 but you get two per pack= 6.00 ea. same on the other parts. you wont be making a mistake with the 600

So just get the standard kit

Depends on what parts hit the ground first...parts are pretty affordable on the Trex 600 to replace. The most expensive will be the blades. Most crashes I had were blades, flybar, feathering spindle, main shaft sometimes and bent tail booms.

As a recent convert to the 600N camp, I can tell you that the 600 flies better then the Raptor. My raptor was very smooth and well taken care of but the 600 tracks better and flies faster with out being pushed hard to do so.

Who raised the ground since I took off?

had a raptor but switched to the trex and its faster on cyclic flies lighter in air raptor is still a great machine but if u grow up in helis and want some serious stickbanging machine the trex wins big time then u got the new hirobo sdx and vibe 50 but they cost a bit more.i only regret not getting the trex 600 last year instead of raptor but read about bad quality and was way wrong about that.

Thanks for the advice guys!

It looks like im swaying towards getting a 600....I was just wondering how much flying time you get with the OS-50 Hyper on one tank of nitro with the T-rex (im just doing sport flying for now)?

Thanks

depending on tunning and if you have a header tank, 7 to 8 min of FF is the norm.

You will love the 600N. Very nimble and can be setup from mild to wild.

Use a better servo The 5625`s just dont center well. Even if you have to buy some used servos to save money ...
