Alright guys I think I have a problem.... I really got into this hobby this April and have went through buying selling trading more than flying..... Seems like I cant make up my mind what heli to keep and everytime I "try" well it doesnt work......

I have a nice stratus flies amazing.... im selling because I dont know where to get parts...

I have two JR vibe 90 3D... same thing Id like to keep one, but walmart "helidirect" doesn't stock parts...

I thought I was hardcore outrage fan I have 2k in a V90 thats not even rtf yet.... and after flying my fusion I dont know if ill like the v90

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

my best heli was a trex 600 LE I sold on here..... reason for selling.... to many of my friends said Align sucks...

MY BRAIN IS BROKEN!

Well, Align's do suck. They suck air from the top of the blades and blow it out the bottom. I have 5 trex 450's and one trex 600 and I hope I wil be able to fly them forever.

Cant go wrong with a LOGO, I have a few and like the way they fly!

Or do what Calmair said, I tried that and settled with logo and TDR.

It's hard, but I try not to care to much what other people think. Maybe buy another Align 600 LE, build it, fly it, and then sell the rest.

I used to have 6 helicopters, but decided to just fly one and get to know it really well. It saves you money, and you'll progress faster.

This is some of the best advice. I decided on two machines. Smaller electric, bigger nitro. Have owned the same two machines for a couple of years now and fly them every weekend. The temptation of buying the latest and greatest can be significant. but stick with machines you have gotten to know, no matter what they are.

Tbird, welcome to the norm! I had 13 heli's and started selling some of them off...too many to keep up with at the time. Currently I have two 700 heli's, two 600 heli's, and one 500 (2 electrics, 3 nitro). I also have two old timer heli's to kick around.

Basically, I have what I like to fly, what feels comfortable to me, not what the norm likes! The 500 is a Protos 500. It is the perfect size for me, it’s bigger than a 450 with quite a bit more power. I can take it almost anywhere with me and get a flight in without anyone hearing it. I have two Compass heli's, the Compass 3D+ and the Compass 6HV.

The 3D+ is great for practicing on; it takes a beating and keeps on flying. It fly’s way better than the Trex 600...IMO. The 6HV is an electric and it is a power house. It fly’s very solid, very precise...it scares me just a little, but that is going away the more I fly it.

Then there's the two 700's, a Rave 90N ENV FBL, and a Trex 700N FBL. The Rave fly's a lot like the Compass 6HV, but not as much power as the 6HV (electric vs. nitro). My Trex 700N is fun to kick around and practice on, my beater heli.

Although, I would like to have one of every heli as well, work only gives me so much to spend! LoL There are a lot of heli's out there to try...see if some of your buddy's would let you test fly theirs to see how you would like that brand. That's how I bought both Compass heli's. Coronal let me fly his 6 & 7HV heli's...I tried to buy the 6HV while it was in the air!!! But I was too late, he sold his second 6HV a week earlier. So I bought my own, and love every minute it is in the air!
