if you plan on crashing a lot, TREX 600. Parts can be found just about any where. and most people haved owned one so they know how to fix/set them up.

if you know how to fly the basics... then i would look at Synergy or the Goblin... Parts can be found on just about all the web hobby shops.

But in the end it is a ford, chevy, dodge question... good luck with what ever you choose. and try to keep all landings skids down.

check out this thread, i build this from spare parts last year and it quickly became one of my favorite helicopters. you could set one up on 6s if thats the packs you have. I can get 15 min flight time with this guy on a 7s pack. its so docile yet light and snappy if you push the collective. very fun to learn on.

If I were you, I would consider a 500 sized heli. Large enough to see but not as unstable as a 450.

I would spend a lot of time on the simulator... crashes are cheap there. You can get a heck of a lot of training done on the sim.

Conventional wisdom is to start wth a small (ie 450) sized heli and work your way up to the large more expensive much more stable helis . (ie: 550,600, 700 and 800) The cost of the helis is a lot and you don't even know if you are going to hang with this hobby long enough to learn to do this. There are a LOT of dropouts.

With the advent of PC based flight simulators you can afford to start with the large stable helicopters and work your way down to the wild 450 size. The addition of FBL seems to have made many smaller helicopters much more stable and easier to fly. A good setup guy can tone things down and make a heli better for a beginner. You need to make friends with someone to handle your setup and explain things.

It is really how much your pocket can afford. I see a lot of helis offered for cheap money because guys never learned how to fly. You cannot get your money back out of an RC helicopter.

Yeah, good info!
Logo 500 or 500SE is a great place to start, very stable, easy to fix when you crash...
work your way down to a 450 as you learn.

When I think about flight performance, crashing, durability and available parts, I would have to say the Compass 6HV ULTIMATE, it is the way to go. The other offerings are just too fragile and not logical enough.

Logo 550sx, flys with the presence close to a 600 but on 6S. Can be flown comfortably at low heads speeds for long flight times, logo's are one of the better low head speed helis on the market but when cranked up perfoms as good as any smack machine out there. It's super low maintenance and parts are cheap for a higher end heli.

Combo is great value just needing servos, rx and lipos to complete.

Can also be stretched to 600 or 700 size with minimal changes and cost as skills and/or desire increase.

The basic logo frameset is one of the most long lived and proven on the market, originally released in 2006. With a few upgrades over the years to cater for the demand in high power setups, it's proven to be reliable and a performer unlike most others on the market.
