The tail is much nicer, as is the belt design IMO.

But since you have the 250, consider a X2 instead, it is a nicer already upgraded machine, it is a bit larger (250mm blades) and has gobs more power than the 200.

I like the Gaui 200 much more than the T-Rex. I could never get rid of a cronic tail wag on my T-Rex. I also think the Gaui is easier to work on and is overall better quality. I am thinking of getting an X2 as a "filler" between my 200 and T-Rex 450 Pro.

Do you like flying your 200 or T-450 more? T-450 flies better in wind?

Hard to say... I enjoy them both very much... They are indeed quite different and I fly them for different reasons. When I want to hone my skills, I actually like my 250 as it "forces" perfection".... this way, when I fly my 450, it is pure enjoyment and relaxation!

Default Size

The GAUI 255/X2 flys like a much bigger machine. And you can fly in smaller places now. With some of the size restrictions against 450 class helicopters at Indoor events.

You should post the video of you landing the 200 on the side of a building, over and over.

That should end the which is better instantly.

That and bert cammers backyard flying video, never seen a trex250 do anything like that.

LOL, couple of beers on the table, nice!
The Bert Kammerer video was the first RC heli video I saw and really drew me to the hobby.

But....
Here is a vid of Bert flying a Trex 250, so they are capable.
