Anyone have (or flown) both the 470L Dominator and the 500 EFL pro?
So I just recently got a dominator 470lm. I love it and it flies great. But yesterday I was at a swap meet and got a great deal on T-Rex 500 efl Pro. It came with a lot of brand new spare parts. I got a great deal on the helicopter and all the parts.
But my thing is, I like to only have one bigger helicopter at a time so I can concentrate on that one. So here's my dilemma, do I keep the Dominator 470 which is newer design and a little bit smaller? Or do I keep the 500 which is a little bit older design, but bigger. The 500 has a Scorpion motor, and probably about $300 worth of spare parts. The Dominator is all-stock. Which one would you keep?
Now I know everybody's going to say keep them both, let's just assume you can only keep one. Which one would you keep? Which one flies better? I do mild 3D flying if that makes a difference.

I would sell the 450
The 500 is easier to fly for me
spending time, paying attention

Well the obvious topic is the relative size. The 500 is easy to see as you get out there a bit. Both fly great, both can get away from you quickly. The 6s 470L is a pretty powerful helicopter and will have more punch than the 500 on 6s. I converted my 500 to 8s, so I have no lack in power there. In the end both will serve you well.

Love my 470L!! Also, you can still fly it in smaller areas and the 6s 1800 batteries are not too expensive. I agree that the 500 on 6s is a little under powered. It really needs a 7 or 8s setup. My suggestion would be to keep the 470L.
