Default blade 450x to buy or not to buy

Hi guys, I want to know from the guys who have it already. Should I buy it? I fly a mcpx and a trex 250, what's the flying like? and 3D has it got enough power? and the quality, what's that like. I would like to know more about this heli, looks like a winner to me

It's going to take sometime for videos to show up.. people only started receiving on Friday. Most people should be getting theirs this week.. I know mine is coming on Monday, I'll see if I have time to make a quick video.

What does it matter? This is what it's capable of. I will get some vid up of mine next week.

Well you did ask what its capable of.. If you are a capable pilot then thats how well it can fly..

Showing a video of a relatively new pilot flying it will not show you what its capable of lol.

PS: I'm not sure about you, but my stock mcpx can flip every which way with ease.

I just got done doing an exhibition with a stock MCPX, and i can do most everything with it in stock form. What are you talking about?? Yes I have a 2S and 4 1S running everything from Hp05 on up. But the stock MCPX is brilliant and work great in stock form. I guess you do have to have excellent collective management skills. What are you waiting for a heli that can fly it self. This stuff is not easy

This one:

He was only 8 when he did that....

I would go as far as to say if you can't fly a stock mcpx, funnels, hurricanes, inverted ect. With exception of tail slides and tic tocs (tail blow out) unavoidable for me, then you could not do it on any other Heli. A 3D capable Heli will not help you fly any better.

The only difference between an Mcpx and the 450 3d or X is the sound of the crash... A tink versus a thud...at least the neighbors don't hear the Mcpx...my brother heard one of my early days bigger heli crashes 1/4 mile away.

Yeah, not so much. The 450 3D is a lot more fun to fly in my opinion since it has A LOT more power and you never have to worry about the tail going out.

When you learn to fly you'll understand. Keep practicing it will come.
