Just out of curiosity, if you could keep one helicopter that you currently own, what would it be?

Myself, it would be one of my 450s. Just not sure which. In my situation, I log sooo many more flight hours them vs my SDX hangar queen.

I'll have a JR E6 550 soon, I'm hoping to bridge the gap between flight hours and size.

Not a 450 for sure... My 500 DFC 3GX on 8s is number one followed really close by my 700 DFC Nitro and 550 DFC...

I hear that, I wish I could go bigger than ~550 ish and be able to fly it
regularly. Not that it will stop me from doing so at some point.

I would have never thought a 500 before a 700 interesting.

I have a few big helis, but if I could only keep one, it would probably be my 450 Pro.

It has more flights than any of my other helis. It is much easier to just grab the case and throw it in my trunk if I have a chance for some quick flights. It is small enough that it doesn't require a gigantic field to fly in. Lipos, parts and blades are cheap plus the heli is light so crashes aren't too bad either.

... although the 130 is quickly replacing my Pro for grab-and-go flying since it can fly "big" in smaller areas than the 450. If I could just get that stupid heli to fly well consistantly like the 450 does. Some days it flies great, some days I am stuck chasing down stupid problems with it

If you could keep onlyone...
It would be my baby:

The fact that I can fly 690 oor 750mm blades, 2300rpm or 1000rpm on 6 cells and fly 11 minutes, 3D or do over 120mph (not on a dive) is just remarkable.

If I could keep one, it would certainly be a top end bad a.. heli. The Diabolo is a sweet one for sure, but I really really like the way the Xxtreme flies and sounds. The canopy has grown on me just like back in the ol' Raptor V1 canopy days, lol.

This is my friends Diabolo that I was flying while he was taking pics, sweet machine.

For me it would be one of my Logo 400's, but I'm waiting for a Goblin 500.

Thats classic!

I could not choose one! The choice would be between the 6S 600 Logo and the 12S TDR. The Logo gets the most flight time!
