Been a long break.
I have been on a 3 year break from RC helis. I have flown many sizees up to 600 elec and nitro. Looking to get back into another 450.

It looks like the Trex pro dfc is the latest and greatest?

Am I missing something or is the flybarless system a gyro as well?

The FBL unit does it all.

If your buying new, don't forget the 450L Dominator. I haven't flown the 450L but its on my "to buy" list. Aside from the kit price, it is 6s so you'll need a charger that can do 6s. Most people have a 6s charger but I thought I'd throw it out there.

I have the 450 Pro DFC and am very pleased with it. You can go wrong with either. FBL made flying 450s fun for me.

Edit, You CAN'T go wrong with either.

A flybarless controller is a 3-axis gyro. It not only replaces the tail rotor gyro, but also looks after the pitch and roll axis, too.-----

Dominator has only been around a couple of months.

The Gaui X3 is similar to the Dominator and the basic kit is very cheap.

Then there is the JR Forza 450.

These are the latest and best 450's around and all capable of swinging 360mm blades stock.

Why not go a bit bigger and get the new Logo 480 Xxtreme? Its basically a stretched 500 so swings 473mm blades.
60% of the time, it works every time!

I would also have to say not considering a goblin 500, could be a mistake I have one and it's the smoothest helicopter I have ever flown, and power for days.... But as mentioned before there are really great 450's not and I like having a smaller one to kinda be a little more risky with Why don't cats get gray hair with age?.....

I have had and flown Trex 250, 450, 600, 600N. I just hadnt been into them in a while and sold all my stuff before I bought a home. Kinda regretting selling my radio/charger equip. I should have kept the 450sev2. I had more fun with a 450 than anything else. If anything, all I would have to buy is a new 450. I still have a Align metal 450 case in my basement.

I used the 450 most because I can basically fly it anywhere. It did not make the noise that all the little kids flock to and I could afford to keep 5-10 lipos in my lipo case.

I also was unpacking and found a MCPx still in the box I forgot about. LOL. GOt it in a trade.

I usually only fly 500 and above. I swore I'd never get another 450 because the 500 class is soooo nice to fly.

Then I flew my friends 6S Dominator with a Vbar.... Lets just say I bought it off him the next weekend. Now that winters here, I fly the Dominator the most, its bad-ass!

I would like to say..... I broke out the found mcpx....

It is ALMOST like riding a bike. I also found my old pheonix rc 2.0 and it works with the dx4e mcpx radio. Been flying on the pc for like 2-3 hours. Im not that bad from taking a 2-3 year break.
