this really depends on your skills and $$$ and what works for you, what I like you might not?

I found that the helis I put the most $$$ in dont get much air time and when they do I just put them around really dont enjoy them much to worried about crashing its stupid really by the time I have the skills to smack them around they'll be out dated yesterdays news

just some thing to think about
yes dear the hobby shop again

The December issue of RC Heli Magazine has an article/review of the new Thunder Tiger Titan X50. The bad marks it got was something about lack of detail in the manual, but, nothing on the negative side as far as the bird itself is concerned. I'm not in the market for another bird, especially a Nitro one, but, if you're looking for one, this might be worth a look at the very least.Team Pilot for RCHeliWorkz

The Synergy N5 is a turn key helicopter. No need to upgrade anything. Build it and go the fly the snot out of it. Parts and pricing are very good and reasonable compared to everything else on the market.

I am planning on picking up another here in the Spring.

Thanks,
Chris

Did I read someone said crash parts are cheap for the SDX?!

Are you kidding?

Hirobo's part quality has got to be the best but you will pay through the nose for them! In the UK anyway.

The SDX is also heavy and vastly over engineered, sooo many parts.

my 2cents
So here's an objective way to decide on any heli.

Do a price comparison of parts that usually get beat up in a crash. Blades (separate topic really), booms, TT gears, shafts (main and tail), belts, landing gear parts, (one piece vrs two), bottom plate, and of coarse, God forbid you actually break the frames

Layout
Next thing to figure is can you get to everyting easily, route wires easily, clear and easy mounting places for your gyro, esc, govorner, FBL equipment etc. Remember things will probably need replacig eventually, and some frames are easier to work around than others.

And last but not least, which one gives you the most eye appeal when you look at it (as you will be looking extensively at it while flying). Everyone likes the looks of heli's differently. I think Synergy is a good looking heli. My buddy Aaron thinks they look like Dora from finding Nemo

Factor those 3 things and rank in order of importance to you, price, layout, and looks. Then make an informed decision.

Well said and True Hirobo is by far one of the best,Have a look at the Sdx made to last ,just like Japanese cars ones again made to last,Parts are expensive In the uk,but Saying that have a look what TT wants for a set of Frames on the X50,WHAT WAS THAT 125.00 Pound for the 2 side Frames and a bottom plate,come off it,I would take SDX anyday before i take the x50.

I don't usually jump in on "what is best" type threads... But, in this case I would like to. As previously mentioned, there are many factors including initial cost, quality, performance, parts cost and so on. But two very important aspects to consider have not been mentioned much...

Parts availability and long term support. Let's take the Century Hawk I had many years ago as an example. Heli flew OK, but I crashed a bunch (my fault, not the heli). As such I needed parts. THEY WERE IMPOSSIBLE TO GET! Months went by with parts being out of stock. Needless to say, I learned my lesson, sold the Century Hawk and bought a Hirobo Shuttle ZXX. Never had a problem getting a Hirobo part.

Next, manufacture support. Let me give you Hirobo as an example. Some 20 years later and I can still get parts for my Shuttles (yes, plural). Hirobo Sceadu, what, 10 years old and parts are still available... Let's just say no one supports their helis like Hirobo.

With that being said, all thing considered, including parts availability and long term support, the Hirobo SDX get my vote. -Steve

Hirobo SDX is a fantastic heli in its quality of parts, the way it flys and the way it looks. I sold mine for parts after a crash after I priced up what it would cost to fix! Its not just the cost of the SDX parts but how many of them break in a crash and there are alot on the SDX.60% of the time, it works every time!

You never clearly defined best as to what that term meant to you.
Quality
Flying
Cost
Etc
I have an Evo Sceadu and a trex 600, both are excellent machines, have had no issues.

T-rex 600 Frames vs SDX frames.. Which is more expensive?
T-rex "metal" head vs SDX's plastic head.. Which is more expensive?
T-rex quality vs SDX's quality... Hmm it must be T-rex Look at all the appealing carbon and metal Look at hirobo it's just trash with all that plastic.

OKAY OKAY I LOVE HIROBO
