Hey guys, I was wondering something. I want a heli that does all out 3D like the 600 and 700's will do, but I want one that is in the same size range as a Blade 400. I own a blade 400, and was also wondering if I should sell it and get a T-rex, being as I already own 2 600n's. I also like scale heli's, so maybe a Scale fuselage for the Blade? Suggestions would be great!

If you want a 450 that you can bang around and do wild crazy stuff with, then go for the Trex 450. The Blade 400 is kind of a dead-end if you really want to wring it out.

Relegate your blade to scale use. Put a better motor and more capable ESC so that the heli will be able to work well with the additional weight of the fuselage and enjoy the best of both worlds.

I bought a blade 400 and what a mistake. Ended up buying a 450 pro after a couple flights. There are so may B400s out there that i would loose so much on selling it. So i turned it into a scale A109 and have been messing around with that.

That's a pretty sweet looking body. Where did you get it? And how much is it?

I got it from helidirect. Its a really nice fuselage except for the instructions. But you can't really beat the quality for the price.

IMHO you are looking for a Trex 450 Pro with 3G. Good quality and flies "Bigger" than it looks.
