I'm in a bit of a dilemma... I can't decide whether I should go with the 500, or the 450. I've decided to go back to small heli's after flying my 700 for two years. Fuel costs were just getting to me. Plus I want to work on getting better with my flying during the winter and crashing these guys is going to be a whole heck of a lot cheaper than the 700

So with this in mind, what would you guys recommend? crash costs are almost the same aside from batt's and blades.

Btw I'd like to go 8s with the 500 and 6s with the 450...

Probably depends on where you will be flying most often.
If it's a small place not big enough for a 500, then go with the mini Protos. If you have plenty of space where you will be flying most often, then go with the 500.

Skip crashing, buy a BD3SX and a 4s Vodoo 400 or a 6s Logo 500 if you want to spent a little more.
You cant fly cheaper.
on the Protos consider the streched 500.

if you TH those ones over high Grass the damage is most times minimal.

But main thing is not to crash.
Therefore a automatic bailout is gold.
