I am just curious, as to what single model has taught you the most since starting heli's, not the sim either, ignore that.
I can't really say, because I am a bit of a tool, and sell them before I really fly them... lol
so whats yours?
Mines my raptor 30v2 still learning and loving it
Raptor 30 v2
Raptor 50 titan se
Pheonix v3 upgraded to 4.0j + DX6
Airwolf fuz waiting to be built
Bo-105 in red bull colours waitng to be built
My old 450SE V2, which has gone on to another new flier. I had a King 2 before that which got me hovering but the 450 taught me to grow a pair and throw it about a bit. Closely followed by the MCPX which makes the pair I grew for the 450 grow even more.
Trex 600 ESP (Turnigy T600, DS821, DS620, GP750, 120A) sold
Trex 450 Pro (MD933 DS520, BeastX, 40A HW, 450MX)
Flying Legends Spitfire (rest in pieces)
Edge 540 Foamy
AXN Floater Jet
MDC F-14 Tomcat
Depron BAE Hawk
DX6i, gt power a606, imax b6, A-6-10
Trex 500 plain and simple. I so never cared (well too much) if it went in as it was such a cheap heli to repair but flies so well and I almost at first enjoyed fixing them as flying them
Probably why I have had 4, no 5 or is it 6 now of them lol
6 x Eddies finest EGS's
all my helis from 450 600 and 700 all different in their ways. the bigger crash less and the smaller crash most
Long live the flybar.
Mine was my 450 Pro, it gave me so much confidence but what I did find was that once i had the confidence back again the 450 got relegated for my 600 so i ended up selling it. i do miss having it to fly sometimes though.
My fury55 taught me to fly, my fusion 50 taught me to 3d, and my gasser taught me to be smooth.
I've progressed faster with my fusion then any other heli I've owned.
3gxNow with added Vbaaaah
Schluter Champion Longranger
G4 E720 Big AIR edition
I'm not controlling it, just preventing it from crashing
Mini protos, but I believe TDR will take its place, if it ever stops raining and blowing.
p.s. I forgot about my 250. I basically learned how to fly on that one. Don't have it anymore tho.

Def the 450 SE v2 then 450 pro purely cos I had crash cost fears with the bigger helis but now i dont crash frequently, my 600 is the workhorse ;-)
T Rex 450 Pro FBL
3 x EGS
I'm with Paul - after a King 2, my HK450 was a dream to fly - honest
It's been up-graded slightly over the last three years but it's still a cheap and effective hack that I try new stuff with. It takes a bit of wind and ground and still comes back for more. Great heli a 450 - everyone should have one.
Trex 450 pro has got me well into 3d it without a doubt the heli tht taught me the most!!!

The 500 was the one that did it for me - stability, good presence and fun without too much crash cost.
