I have been flying my hawk pro for about 1 year now. It has not been real steady but I feel like I have pretty good control of it in a upright status. What I would like to know is; I also own a trex 600. It is a nitro pro. I am trying to get the balls to take it out and fly it.Does it fly easier,harder,or about the same as the hawk pro.I can tell just by the controls it will probably but quite a bit more solid a responsive than the hawk.I have bought a lot of extra parts for the hawk and I have no extra parts for the trex 600.Do you suppose it will come pretty easy for me?

Up To You.......
I have been flying my hawk pro for about 1 year now. It has not been real steady
It is up to you, and we all understand you wanting to fly that nice new machine!!!!!

But I would have to ask what you mean when you say your Hawk Pro has not been real steady???
I read that as, NO, I am not ready, Or It is a poorly set up model, OR you just need more practice.....depending on what you mean by steady.... but on a Hawk, there is no reason for it not to be steady or a solid flier if built and set up properly.....
So, from that part of your statement, and the consideration that you have spares for the Hawk, I would suggest you stay with it...and get it "tuned" so that you and "it" are both flying smoothly.... then make the move to the 600... the 600 will have a much faster control rate (should say, could have)and will be a faster heli all around in the air....
Not meaning to ruffle any feathers, but I hope that you will read this as constructive info..

Good Luck..... Stan

I do Stan and I appreciate your input.It is real hard to not just fire up the 600 and go. I have been flying airplanes for a little over 40 years and I just want to make sure I'm ready for a bit more heli.I have been on the sim for probably a year also so I am getting closer.I travel for work and I will take the hawk on my travels to keep me in practice. Thanks again. Dougly

I say Fly what you got:P The 600 Is a very solid helicopter if set up correctly and you should have no problem with it.

Any helicopter can be set up mild or wild depending on servo throws, paddle and blade choice.

Set Up ??
Hi again Doug,

Since you are using the sim and taking a heli with you on trips, I was wondering if you have had any help from anyone on your set ups...sometimes, a good heli pilot can take your machine up for a test hop, make a couple of very minor adjustments and you will have a completly different flying heli....
Are you in a local club?? That seems to be the best place to find those willing to give that helping hand.....
The transition from the Hawk to the Rex should not be any problem for you once you are comfortable in FFF and that your set ups are correct...
A good check for a good set up is to be able to hover your machine for a few seconds with hands off the sticks... I do it on every ship that I build... make the mechanical adjustments... it is well worth your time....
And then just keep on practicing... you will be on that 600 in no time!!!!

You'll never know till you fire it up and lift off. Make sure the controls move the right direction and that the tail goes the right direction for both rudder input and gyro correction. If you've gotten the setup done right, there should be few, if any surprises.

Everything works the same as your Hawk Pro, the heli might feel and behave different from what you are used to, but in the end, it responds to the same control inputs in the same way. Go easy the first few flights to get the feel of the new heli and enjoy it. If there is someone else nearby who can maybe double check your work and setup, and make sure the 600's ready to go, then that would be great.
