Question Heli newbie Columbus, GA

I just joined this forum never been on one before I'm a newb all around. But anyways I'm thinking about starting a T Rex 450 pro v2 3gx and I was just trying to get some info is it worth the money are they a quality product I've herd so a lot of bad things about them tail servo braking off the mount tail gears burning up easy glitching bad bearings in the tail and main shaft just wondering if this is just luck of the draw when you get your kit or people's mistakes. Any tips or advice would be awsome thank you!!!!!

Not sure about the Trex but I love my TT raptors gr8 machine at a decent price & parts are reasonable, good luck!

The Trex is a great little helicopter. I learned on a 450 PRO 3GX. My tail bearings went bad though, cause a tail wag as if the gyro gain was out of spec. The tail gears are prone to shear, especially if you fly on/off carpet or grass or am learning. So, buy extras for the front.
