Go ahead and get a Benzin gasser .. if your going scale this is what you want.. make sure to get the model with 800mm blade (there are 2 Benzin's . not sure of the #)

Are they worth it?

That is a question, not easy to answer.

Vario is neither Top Notch Quality nor is it the "Bling Bling" fancy racing Helis like Henseleits.

I have flown Vario and still do on one Heli.

for the mechanics you will find better Helis and more reliable and easy to build also.

But vario (at least here) has one advantage. If you order spares you have them next morning on your table.
I've never had such a constant positive delivery experience with any other supplier yet.

And they even deliver Parts for their 20-30Y ago helis.

If you build a long lasting scale heli you might be glad if you get spares for a long time.

On a trainer that is not so important.
