Just thought I would ask if anyone had a 450 se v2 tail case. Seems they're getting scarce in the hobby shops and I broke my last one.
Thanks.

No?... Bummer, I'll have to invest in a few pairs of brown pants then.

Thanks for the advice guys! I`m excited to try these bigger birds out. Kind of scared too, but I`m sure that will pass lol

Yeah that's why I've kind of narrowed it to align and TT, for local parts availability. I am far too impatient to wait for parts orders.
How many flights should I expect out of a gallon of fuel on a 50? Approx anyway.

Also, I see align offers a starter for 130$ or so, Are there any cheaper starters you guys know of?

A new radio? Hmm... That may push this over the edge for what I can afford. Is a governor necessary? Or just a luxury to have so you dont have to fool with throttle curves as much?

I have a dx6i, no good receivers for a bigger heli though. I guess I'm approaching the intermediate flying level with my 450s, I'm at the point where I can hover nose in inverted some what comfortable, started trying inverted forward flight last fall, trying to get better at backwards flight, small loops, rolls and funnels...
Trying to bring the simulator flying into real life but having trouble with the fear lol I'm sure a 50 sized nitro with 150$ blades isn't going to help that.
But that's why i'll always have the cheap 450's, so I can try unfamiliar things, crash and not break the bank.

I'm just having a hard time trying to decide what to get, you have an equal ammount of people who love every heli and tell you why its the one you should get  Huh

Hey guys, I've been flying electric helis for two years and a bit.
I've been wanting to get into something larger than a 450 for a long time and have the chance to do so now. I wanted to stay electric, but it seems anything over a 425mm blade sky rockets in price for batteries and chargers..

So I have been thinking about trying out nitro, it just seems like the economical choice for larger birds, and I have a little experience with nitro from the few years I was into monster trucks.
But i'm still a little stumped on what to get and why.
I've attended one fun fly just to spectate and it seemed like most people were flying raptors vs align. Price? stronger?
I was thinking about a raptor 30 for the price, but people have been advising me to jump straight to a 50 so I have the extra power to grow on so I was thinking about the raptor 50se. Any things to look out for, or warnings?

Also, trying to go into this for as little as possible with out sacrificing too much in reliability, what are some brands of cheaper but still decent starters I should look at that are available in edmonton here?

Thanks, I have more to ask, but I'm just on break and can't think of them now.
