I have T-Rex 450 pro, T-Rex 500, T-Rex 600NP and Synergy N9...I fly the most my 500. Why because it is easier to carry and does not need my big field box and does not need extensive washing after flight...and I am just more comfortable with this size heli.

believe it or not,its my T250.why?,its small and easy to carry anywhere.basically,the cost of damage is also reasonable price and the batteries are easy to charge and doesn't take too long.also batteries are low cost and i think that is what alot of electric heli pilots are looking for,is the cost,cost,cost!.but the main thing i like the most about it, is 3D manuvers are really,really possible if set up right!..

p.s.-forgot to mentioned you can also hide it from your wife or girlfriend!!LoL...

2 years not sure if you could call it flying around but 6 months for that. lol

2 450's
1 500
1 600

and the 500 does get allot o stick time, but i go through spurts where i'll fly the 600 then back to the V1 and then the V2 ect ect

there all great and each one serves its own purpose and thats why we have more then 1

I have a 450 Pro and a 600 pro. I have been flying the 450 pro way more in the last few months. I can fly it at a school about 2 min from my house. The 600 I have to go the field about 30 mins away. Plus I just like flying the 450. Great heli to fly. I hope to try a 500 soon and that might become my favorite.

I have a 500,450 and a 250.I sold my flying anvil(600).

By far and away my favorite is my MSR.lol....
Fly about 20 batteries a day with it.

After that,it's the 500 hands down

I literally never use the word literally right.

1. 600 because it’s windy this time of year and the 600 handles wind best. Now that the cost of LiPo batteries have come way down it’s very affordable.

2. 500 – nice size that’s also gets a lot of flight time. Will probably convert to flybarless this winter.

3. 450 – Gets very little flight time because the larger ones fly so much better.

.
.
.

Actually the helicopter that gets the most flight time is my Flybarless Raptor E620. Flybarless is definitely the way of the future. There are several new flybarless systems coming out over the next few month. Align will make one so hopefully that will really drive the price down for all of them. I think that cost is the main turn-off for most.

It's a time thing for me.
Lately I have been flying my Trex 450 the most since it flies well in my back yard 60'x100'.Six flights per day weather permitting. Not much room for anything bigger in the yard. I am about 20 minutes away from either of the two fields that I fly at so it takes at least 40 minutes traveling to and from. I can buzz off 6 packs at 4 minutes each with my 450 in that time. I also fly my 500 back there. Have 2 600N and a 700as well that see weekend flying.

You definitely need to invest in an iCharger. They have a model that will charge at 20 amps.

My FBL 450Pro handles the wind almost as well as the larger helicopters, yet the parts are cheap and it is easy to maintain.

Right now its my Outrage 550, but soon it will be my Trex 450Pro when its all built.

The little guys are much easier to deal with in the winter, its hard charging 4 6S 5000mah packs in the winter....much easier just charging 2 3S 2200mah packs at 10amps(15minute charge).....

My Razor stretched to 700 size gets all the attention. My others are all sadly awaiting my attion. [Trex 450, Spectra G gasser, CH47 based on trex 450s,Hawk 30 size with 37 engine, a couple of micros' for indoor].

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I started with a 450 and flew that for a year then I got a 500 and flew that all the time. Then 6 months after that I got a 600 and flew that all the time. Then I sold the 450 and bought a k3d, and the 500 just sits. So I just fly the 600 and k3d now, and my 500 is a shelf queen.

So 50s all the way yo
