You are less likely to break the Trex frame and you would have to be doing something pretty stupid to break the Trex head!

Lets not compare Trex prices to Hirobo prices because you wont win!

Trex parts quality bearings aside maybe are on par with any other these days, people who dont own any of Aligns latest kits wont know this. After all they are all made in very similar machine shops using the latest hi-tech CNC millers, lathes, grinding machines etc.

I might be a little bias but I do not think so . For the best sophisticated design and head layout . Quality and flying characteristics no doubt in my view the Hirobo SDX leads the way.Roberto Munoz

For the price, it's very tough to beat the Align T-Rex 600N.

It's the 5th "50" size helicopter I've owned, and it's by far been my favorite.

Very simple and straight forward to build and maintain. I love being able to just remove 8 bolts and pull my whole boom assembly off.

The electronics tray is very well thought out and has plenty of room for amp boxes, receivers and more. Not to mention, Align cuts lots slots in it so you can secure your expensive electronics further with velcro straps.

The tail assembly is one of the smoothest I've ever setup. Everything just felt like it was made to go together.

I've put almost 200 flights on my T-Rex 600N over the last 4 months, and it's been smooth sailing the whole time. It's been the best helicopter I've ever owned (and I've had Hirobo and Compass helicopters before).

All that being said, I look forward to assembling a MA Fury 55 to compliment my T-Rex 600N soon.

My Vibe 50 has been very reliable and flys great,better than the Trex 600 i had. The new Vibe NEX is the best 50 size for the money you can get,top quality and at $540 is a low price for the quality you get.YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE..IF YOU LIVE IT RIGHT THATS ALL YOU NEED

600
I disagree. No mfg has more parts out there. I think Align has the stronghold on the market

I got an x50 a few months ago and waited for parts for a few weeks while dealers got inventory.

Not the case with the 600 if xx doesnt have it yy does

Go align

If
All align has on any one is parts are every where,other than that I prefer outrage great quality ,excellent customer care,parts are cheaper than aligns(plus u get more for your money) and the v50 is a great flyin heli,plus you can have 2 of them and set them up totally different .
You cant compare a rex 600 to it the v50 is a whole different heli.flies more like a vibe
Give outrage some time ,they'll have everyone sayin align who????

Seems you can have quality but pay the price or go cheaper and have slightly less quality. Whatever floats your boat.

My pockets aint that deep so FOR ME its the Trex 600NSP.

Align if you just like flying, anything else if you like tinkering and spending money.

I've had the Vibe 50 for nearly about 3 years and never had any issues with it, especially the quality of the heli itself was excellent. When I heard that Vibe 50 Nex is releasing, I sold my vibe 50.
As a second machine I bought TT X-50, which was light weight with excellent built. I wouldn't say better then Vibe 50, but it is a good heli. Therefore TT x-50 is one of the heli which I fly on daily basis with the following setup BLS 451"s Cyclic, Bls 251 w GY 520, Atg Gov, Duralite Reg, OS 50 Hyper with an Hatori Pipe.
Now getting back on the main topic, I’m confused in between these two heli’s Vibe 50 Nex or the Fury 55, don't really care about the $$ exp. Just need one good heli as my previous vibe 50.

So what do you suggest in between the furry 50 and vibe 50 nex. I’ve my plans on getting the Flybar.

That is because they do what they were intended to do with little fuss or expense. Yes there are lighter and better performing helicopters out there but the majority of people who fly rc helicopters can't outfly a Raptor's ability let alone need the better helicopters. I sure know I can't. It all comes down to just buying what floats the boat. I get wanting to buy the newest coolest thing, I just have not seen anything that is compelling enough to make me spend the cash except maybe a Radikal just because of the gasser factor.
