Default 2nd heli

ok hi all you guys

i have a z00m 400, and look at buying the t-trex 600.
i have played with the zoom in the garden so not had a lot of fly time would the t-rex 600 be ok for me to learn with as it is a big heil.

i also have refle x flight sim and have got on very well with the control and fly the heil about ok.

It will fly so much easier than the zoom. It will fly better/easier than any small 400 size heli. I guess the question would be, (since you are fairly new), are you prepared for a heli this size. You must realize that this 600 is a powerful machine, capable of doing harm and damage.

With that out of the way, Go for it if you feel you are ready for the jump. I love my large electric heli's, (all logos and 2 trex 450 SE). I also have a trex 600 preordered, and can't wait until it arrives. I hope it will be in tomorrow, Or by fri at the latest. I already bought the gyro and a few other things....(can you tell I'm excited)?????

Get the 450se first. the size, and noise of a larger heli can be overwhelming (even for me at sometimes) and a lot of people will just freeze up. This definetely needs a large space to fly in, and will kill someone.

Yep - (I jave a Logo 20 and 2 SE's amongst others) - the biggest factor to consider is space. If you have a large flying field you can regularly gain access to then a 50 class heli will be a world of stability compared to your Zoom (my zoom is never flown now). If you have limited field access then you won't get much flying done and you certainly can't stand in the corner of a park and fly - you just can't fly anywhere near public - it's far far too dangerous.

ok sounds like space wouild be the only problem not one for the gaden then i have a flying club near by that i think it would be ok to fly at .

Becasue of its size i did not know if it was to big for a newbe to heil fly, but it sound to me if it would be a lot easyer then trying to fly my zoom around the garden when there is no wind about.


All i have to do know is talk the wife round to leting buy a new heil when the old one does not get used very much. lol lol That is not going to be easy

I am glad to see there are some safety minded people out there. I would suggest that if you have the space then learning on the Rex 600 would be no different then using a Rap-50 just start out with the 1650 head speed that is offered in the manual and you will do fine.

Of course - one thing - unless you are very patient and cautious - or you have a tutor with a buddy box - learning on a rex 600 will cost you a fair whack more in parts - well, main rotors will anyway. Not sure what people are using on the rex 600 but my NHP Carbons (60cm) for my Logo cost 45 a set. (used to be 60 and I just checked so I'm rather pleasantly surprised! :-) )

The more I fly my Trex 450 SE's the more I think they are perfect for training. They are just so darn cheap and easy to repair and fly very much like their larger brothers. Only catch is strong gusty wind makes the smaller helis unflyable for a learner and not a good prospect even for the experienced.
