"they are all obsolete"... It depends...

New brands not always mean good quality things...

If your helis haven't been crashed, you probably need some batteries, some maintenance arrangement and ready to fly!

Enjoy your gadgets!

By the time you fly all your helis and check all your stuff , you will think clearly your new expectation!

I have really enjoyed my Logo 550sx for 6 yrs. Now and I started flying a Goblin 570 sport model this year..it flies very good on 6s..I use v-bar on both models..in Express mode..I wish I had the pro software on the logo sometimes..but the Goblin doesn't need it..for my flying style anyway..both models are excellent choices Imho!I do a great decending funnel!

You were out for 10 years... So... Welcome back!

Fly your helis... Improve your "fingers"...fly, crash and repair if it is necessary.

By the time you feel more confident and don't think about going out again, let see what you have and only then, think about new helis!!!

minature aircraft, XL-power/MSH, Soxos but make sure you can get parts before you decide. Looks and see if you can get a basic crash kit, like side frames, tailboom, tail parts. i've found Hirobo kits at europe dealers, They are still trucking. Shipping is high though. Welcome back

For a 'standard' raptor 50 you can get 'klone' parts from here
