Default 450 vs 500....600....700

Lookin to eventually go bigger(want to do a scale heli) and I'm wanting to know should I even waste time going to a 500. Is it really that much bigger than a 450?.....have been looking at 600 size and up as well.

A 500 is not much bigger than a 450. The jump from a 450 to a 550 is more significant.

General Rotor Lengths:
450> 325mm
500> 425mm
550> 520mm
600> 600mm
700> 690-810mm

There's also a better selection of scale kits for 550 and up.

I purchased a Trex 550e after owning a 450 PRO. The difference is AWESOME!

I still fly the 450 when practicing new tricks or in a smaller area, but the 550e is by far my favorite!

If the 450 EXI in your profile shot is your bird... you'll notice a hugh change just swapping for better bearings.
It's really about simple math - the bigger the bird the bigger the margin of error you can have before your day is wrecked. If you're a wicked mechanic you can stay small with some serious upgrades OR put about 25% to 50% more on the table go big and not have to fuss as much. 8-)
