Thanks for confirming what I've been thinking! I have the B400, the Nano and soon hopefully a 150s. Also the WS2000 wireless dongle for simulators. I figure I can always get a Spektrum sat for any models which I want and don't support DSMX.

Though I love the look of large scale helis, they'll be out of my budget for the foreseeable future (I like to do other things like SCUBA and skiing so it's all a balance!) and to be frank, I'd bore quickly of it - not my scene.

I aim to get reasonably good at 3D and from what I can tell the smaller Blade Helis will be good enough for that for a while.

Maybe a Trex 470 in the long term...
