Default Joker v. T-Rex 600

Does anyone have an opinion on which is the better choice, the T-Rex 600 CF or one of the Jokers (Mini Joker, Joker 2, Maxi Joker 2)?

I'm a realive Noob to the helis, but before I bought my T-rex 600 I did a lot of research. I feel like it's the most bang for your buck. It fly's great, replacement parts are readily available, many nice cnc upgrades.

I built mine as follows.
T-rex 600CF
600XL motor
188t helical main gear
tork tube upgrade.
Futaba 9451 servos (3)
GY611 Gyro
EVO25 5000 Mah battery (I'm told now that the Evo20 4900 Mah delivers as much power, flight time and weighs less, so that will be my next battery)

If you want to see how well it flys. Check out this website.
" JustinChi.com"
This kid is 4 years old and flys the 600 like a pro.

Hope this helps,
Mark

Mini Joker is quite a fatty if I remember correctly.
The Trex will spank it as far as weight go's, but quality?
Trex is very good quality but the Minicopters.....German engineering, cant beat it.
Depends on what you want it for.
3d get the Trex, lighter and cheaper all round for when you crash it.

Thats the next question. Do you fly with other chopper people? What do they fly?
What does your local hobby store support?
I am flying a King V2 and the lhs does not support it so I have to order from the web.
Not a big thing but when I crash, often, I have to wait for the parts.
Yes, I do order several of each but it is a pain in the you know what to wait while your buddies fly.
