The gaui hurricane 200 is pretty much the same size as a trex 250. Boom is slightly shorter thats about it. Many 250 parts can be adapted to work on the gaui.

The Blade400 is a great starter heli, its easy and cheap to fix, and perfectly capable of doing pretty much all manouvres, but the all plastic parts all have a little bit of flex and slop in.

I bought a Trex 450 Pro super combo (before sport came out, which is probably a better heli due to robust belt tail and easier layout for maintenance) which I was scared to crash to start with, but soon got over that and ended up selling the Blade400 (I had bought it used, and sold it on for what I'd originally paid for it).

I then ended up getting a Trex 250, which was fantastic, main benefit was I flew the 450 maybe once a week, not even every single week, the 250 I could fly several times a week, sometimes every day, wherever I was and my progress was so much faster for it. I still fly the 250 more than any other heli, I probably get 10 flights a week EVERY week with it, whereas the 450/500 probably get 10 flights a month, as I can only fly them when I get to the field. The 250 I can fly on any bit of open space, and is in a briefcase with tx, batts, charger, tools so I can chuck it in the car whenever I am away anywhere and more often than not there is somewhere I can fly it.

I think you should look into the gaui 200 if your looking for a small indoor outdoor ride,
alot more durable than your 250 and overall read about what people have to say about it. Good luck with your decision.'JC

Perfect for Indoors if you have the skills. I want one too but I have enough for now. smaller than a 120, larger than MSR, and the body of a Gaui..... lol

What am I doing here I don't even own a 250.....

This is my exact scenario as well. Every now an then I'll bring my 400 out to play. My Trex 450 and Trex 500 get about equal attention, but my 250 SE is flown most often.

Same thing here too. Most every morning at work in the parking lot before it fills up. 450 is my weekend worrior.

Honestly, I would rather just get a Walkera 4G6S. It's much cheaper, and although it doesn't have as good a frame or head, it still got a good frame to add on to, and the head can be tuned to be good. It's also a inch smaller which makes it more versatile. Plus, if specktrum is your thang you can easily spektrumize it with a AR6300 and the ETech EG108 (3-axis-gyro) that's supposed to be coming out this month. Add a FBL head, a HP-08 motor, a 12XP ESC, and you got yourself a mini t-rex that's still turns out cheaper then the Gaui 100

The 4G6s or the already flybarless V120d02 is a cheaper route and there not that bad either. In fact I learned on the 4G6 and to my belief if you can hover and do small circuits in a 12 x 14 square you can fly anything. You can upgrade the motor and esc to make it a bit better but it's no 250..

The thing that excites me about the 250 is that its a CP-capable heli that I could potentially fly in my garage.
i have a blade 400 and i havve a lot of money in to upgrades, my friend has a brand new 450 sport all stock and it flys circles around my 400, i would need to spend another 300-400 bucks to get it to fly like his and i would have a 900 some dolor blade 400 the t rex 450 eats the blade 400 for lunch x10

i can fly my 400 in 20mph winds it's not fun, i can fly the 450 in 20mph winss and i still enjoy flying it cus the wind only bothers it a little bit..

hands down the 450 is a grat flying good quality machine, the blade 400 is just a semi ok flying, low quality machine unless you got a lot of money to dump in to ing

i am ready to sell mine and gett a 250 or a 450, i love my 500 but it would be nice to have a back up and somthing to fly in smaller spaces..

If u get a clone, make sure u change a few stuff. I would recommend these 2 items
Metal Tail Drive Gear Assembly H25079
New Main Drive Gear/120T H25096

Which clone did u get? I got the combo for the Flasher 250. Quite ok, but i need to change those as the plastic tail drive gear are just crap. even after i applied CA.
Main gear was a bit warp. So for ease of mind, i decided to change it. Might as well get some stuff from infinity hobby, kevlar belt and CF boom

Just destroyed my B400, the tail just died. and earlier this week I was just thinking of getting into a Trex 250 or a clone and dumping the 400. I have just started doing some forward flight circuits and the ocasional flips. The blade is going to need a new head and tail. I could get into a clone for what I am about to spend to repair the blade (metal parts). Someone help me descide.
