Maybe the Trex 600 has improved now,i bought mine 3 years ago 600 sport,first few weeks were good,then the baffles in the Exhaust went,a week later my upgraded alum fan split in half,then it was the tail casing started to get fine cracks,eventually i was flying a piece of upgraded cardboard,it was more on the work bench than in the Air,it just kept letting me down due to poor quality,when they were made i dont think safety was a big issue,thats why i like something durably and good quality like TT and Hirobo

Watch at YouTube

I remember this was the first demo video to seeing the X50 in production.

If only them flying skills came in the box with HELI

Funny they called it a "Raptor" too

I fly T-Rex 600's, as do a few others at my field. There are also a few Raptors flown as well. During the season I fly 2-3 days a week, about 10 flights a day, all season long. I've had excellent luck with the T-Rex 600's and haven't had any issues with failures that weren't my fault (crashes, improper assembly, etc). The guys that fly the Raptors haven't had any issues either. One bought a T-Rex 600 LE and hasn't flown his Raptor since.

All in all, they are both excellent buys, and will serve you well. Every heli from any manufacturer has some issues with quality. But for the main manufacturers, they usually fix them and provide a decent product.

I agree with the those that say fly what others are flying in your area and with readily available parts. You will fly more, benefit from their knowledge, and progress faster than being the lone wolf on the field with a heli no one is familiar with.

Choosing between T-Rex, Raptor, etc, is a background noise level issue. In the end, it really isn't that important, and you'll be well served with either.

Chevy or Ford anyone?

Bloody hell!!!!!!!!!! He's very good, so is the Raptor. I can never understand why the E gals say there is no power in Nitro. I guess I was comparing my old raptor(plastic frame) with the trex carbon frame. Seeing that video, certainly change my view. It's awesome mate.

welcome to the dark side =)
