Default Hk heli's

Aso I've been really interested in the hk heli's. Mainly cause they are pretty cheap for how awesome they are. But I don't know much about them. I have all blade heli's. 2 SR's 1 MCPX and a 120 sr. Looking to go bigger. So are HK heli's a good heli/ route to go? Are parts easy to get/cheap(er)? How do they fly? Which one would be a good one to get? And are they complicated to build? I can rebuild my sr way easy and fast. I enjoy it. Sorry for all the questions I'm just trying to gather info.
Thanks for your input

They are trex clones. If I were you I would buy a trex combo. It will end up the same price or cheaper than buying hk, buying electrics, and buying the align parts to replace the parts that are no good on the hk clone. I don't hate clones I've built them before, but the money you save initially quickly gets used up fixing the shoddy parts

From my personal experience i would start with an hk 500 learn the flying skills needed before moving to align i personally started with an hk 500 then moved on to an align 600n and an elyq 90 but whenever i want to learn a new skill/ maneuvers i do it on the hk first in all i probably spent $100 nz on upgrades over 2 years on the hk and only have hk parts and electrics in it

How much would I be looking at spending if I did the 500. With decent stuff in it?
